I'm Baaaack! And Wed!

It's true!

I'm an old married lady!

Onto the details that I was saving for you.  For one big wedding deluge post!

(well, three of my favorite details)

First, the dress.  I went to Mark Ingram in New York (who got a shoutout and cameo on Gossip Girl a few weeks ago.)  

I didn't have quite as much cleavage showing as this model from the Monique Lhuillier, but it was still pretty impressive in person.


Second, I can't say enough nice things about our florist, Jessy Wolvek from Fleurs in Brooklyn.  She endured the storm of the century to get the right flowers and honestly, if she hadn't been basically a mind reader, I would have had three bud vases with carnations on each table.  Because I think my conversations with her were like, "I like flowers....pretty ones."

You can see that she took my vague ramblings and made something beautiful through Vane from Brooklyn Bride's guest post at Design*Sponge.

Third, the beauty!!!  

What, you thought I would drown you in vendor listings and details about our wedding song and matching escort cards?

The makeup artist did a fabulous job.  Truly amazing.  As in, she covered the terrible zit that popped up and WOULD.  NOT.  GO.  AWAY.

She also used my Bobbi Brown lip colors (the Creamy Lipstick in Pink Ballet topped with lipgloss in Hot Pink) and used L'Oreal's Lash Out mascara in waterproof black.  It stayed put and, since she gave me the tube (bonus!) I used it throughout my honeymoon.  New favorite!!

So, in summary, the wedding was simply amazing.  And now I'm so ready to return to normal life.

Just wait 'til I tell you about our honeymoon in Buenos Aires!!

Welcome back! Your dress is gorgeous - that is a stunning neckline.

You missed a week of rain in D.C. - good timing! Although the rain is back today, unfortunately!
