1 Week Countdown!

You guys!  It is exactly 7 days til our wedding and I cannot wait.  Sam's family arrived from Australia yesterday and it just made everything so real.  The big day is nearly here!  Last weekend my mom and I traveled to Austin to take my bridal portraits with The Nichols, and it was such a special time together.  This was the first time she had seen me in my dress and veil, and she was a champ at helping me move around and get situated when we took the pictures at Chateau Belleuve.  Here are a few pictures from the weekend:

This next week I will be sure to pop in and say "Hi!", but I also have some fabulous guest posts lined up while we are away for the wedding and honeymoon.  I'm sure I 'll be posting lots of photos to Instagram, too!

All my love,

  6. I've never commented, but this is such a wonderful time in your life. Best Wishes for a life of Happiness and Endless Love.

  7. Fits like a glove, I would however recommend you get loops sewn into the sides to hold the sash in place. The loops they have are very flimsy and I broke one before I even got the dress to the cleaners.


Awww.... your comments make my day! I always love to hear from you.
