Wedding Wednesday: The Wedding Row + Updated Checklist.

Yesterday after lunch I came back to my computer and checked Facebook, and to my surprise, I saw that Cameron and my engagement pictures were featured on The Wedding Row! I knew the pictures were going to be featured, I just didn't know when. So it was a lovely surprise! :)

  1. Wow you have done a lot! Did you register at Pottery Barn? I just put the cake knife and serve on our registry haha.

  2. You're seriously checking things off that list! Can't wait to see who you're using for the videographer. I always love that part!

  3. I love The Wedding Row! One of my absolute favorite sites. Perhaps it's because I live in Charleston and just adore seeing Charleston venues as home to some gorgeous Southern weddings? You've gotten a lot done. I promise those last 144 days are going to fly by so quickly. We got married at the I'On Creek Club this past February and I can't believe how quickly a year is going by. Enjoy every moment, because you'll look back and say "wow that went by too fast.".


  4. You and my sister are right on target! She posted her invitations on BonBon today!

  5. I still can't believe these are all the things you have to do to get married. holy cow! BUT you are killing that list lady! you own it! and 144 days - you are getting close to double digits!
