20 June 2015 Williamstown, MA Lilly & NIK tied the knot in June. A full recap coming up this summer. But in the meantime — I wanted to share with you (and them!) the written words of my wedding day speech. To set the stage: Katie and I delivered two toasts, but we stood with each other.

September 2014 Oxford, Maryland I am a bit behind on the wedding posts this fall — so I will no doubt be blogging through the winter. The silver lining? A little wedding cheer during the holidays makes the season even brighter. In September, Barbara and Jamie tied the knot on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Their wedding weekend was full of personalized touches that I loved. For … Continue reading #BadPeace: Wedding Bliss on the Eastern Shore
8 September 2014 Washington D.C. Unlike previous years, wedding season is just about to gear up for us instead of slow down. We have three epic weddings this fall that I can’t wait to attend.

Oh! The wedding invitation! It took us quite a while to get where we landed — and although it was a little stressful at times — I did really enjoy the process.

HOWEVER, I cannot imagine doing a full DIY invitation: Our semi-homemade … Continue reading Semi-Homemade Wedding Invitations
Early in the wedding planning process, Harry and I asked Harry’s mom if she was open to us having our reception at her home in Chestertown, Maryland. She was thrilled. Everyone who has been there knows the house by the water, is magical. Crabs come by the bushel and time slows down when you spend a sunny afternoon poolside with friends and family. This past … Continue reading Where Should We Put the Tent?
