Our Phoenix backyard reception is this weekend. We had 23 guests at our wedding ceremony in Sedona with the anticipation of celebrating big style with our closest friends in February. I tell ya, if you’re not married yet, y’all should get married like we did. It was easy, we didn’t end up broke, we have beautiful photos by Ryan Ray and now we get to have two more parties!
My good friend Ricki Uster of la Ricki who did my wedding is also doing my reception. The theme is citrus since we have two grapefruit trees and they are in ripe season. Yes, you will see photos of that after the wedding debuts. I can’t post that before the actual wedding, duh. That’s like posting baby photos and then posting maternity photos after. You can’t do that.
If you’re still reading this, God bless you.
See that chalkboard sign above? Yeah, I totally made that easel, hinges and all, and that script font. I should pimp out my services to places like Trader Joe’s, or chalkboard menu restaurants. I would like to credit my high school days on the dance team when we made signs for the football games and rallys. I wrote that freehanded only looking at a font on paper and just copied it. I.know. I am not only a wedding photographer, I am also a chalkboard artist.
New chairs for the two new tables our handyman Dennis built us. If you want his info, leave a comment and I’ll email you. He’s awesome. Anyway, these white steel tabouret staking chairs are from Overstock.com and can be found here. Ricki and I are splitting a set so I can have a set of six. Time to entertain outdoors!
It’s 73 degrees here in Phoenix. And sunny. Just thought I’d rub that awesomeness in. Only because I can for like three more months before I start sweating like a pig. Then, I shall retreat to Nor Cal!
Diana Elizabeth was asked to write a letter to her 20-year-old self for the 20-Somethings Blog. Can you imagine what you’d write to yourself? Here’s her letter.
