wedding details, pt. 1

Yesterday marked one month that Geoff & I have been married. So far so good! Really, not a whole lot has changed except that my downstairs neighbour calls me “Sadie.” But it has definitely been lovely, although the word “husband” still feels a little unfamiliar.

I hope to share a few details over the next little while, as the professional photos aren’t yet ready (and I do intend to post a few of those). I spent so much time working on the details, making things and setting things aside, and consider many of them to be part of the general creative output I post here. I promise there won’t be too many parts; even I would roll my eyes at myself otherwise.

This isn’t something that I made, but a friend did. We had invited Bre to the wedding, but she couldn’t make it. She sent me three of her beautiful rose gold sequin clutches as a gift: one for me, one for my bridesmaid, Erin, and one for my maid of honour, Annie. They fit in perfectly with my (non-existent) wedding theme (“things that I think are pretty / things that are shades of gold, silver, dark blue, pink, white, or grey / love”—?). They will be forever treasured. Thank you, Bre.



We didn’t pose (ha, POSE) with them, but our friend Thomas took some photos with our Olympus camera so the clutches did make it into a few “behind the scenes” pictures. (The dresses are from Dace. I wish I had ordered one for myself, because that blue silk is so pretty. Even my mother wanted one.)


Poor Trevor ended up being our valet as we took photos. I’m sure that at some point he had all three in his arms.

Just a tidbit: You might notice another bridal party in the background: there were about twenty of them with their photographers and videographers, and they kept shouting at each other and cursing loudly and giving us cut eye. One of their most astonishing photograph setups included the groomsmen all lined up in a row, pretending to hump the bridesmaid bouquets. So much entertainment.

  1. It all looks so pretty! Congratulations! I was just wondering if you know whether the Dace dress is still available for purchase? It is lovely! xx

    1. Thank you! Sadly, no, it's not available... it's from a collection they had last year, and I don't think it was put into production. We were able to get two specially made because the owner of Dace is a friend of Erin's. Maybe a future collection will include a similar design—at least I hope so!

  2. Those pictures are so adorable. Did she make them herself?! Those are the most beautiful clutches I have ever seen. And I don't even like clutches, but I would purchase a hundredfold of those! They're so dainty and gorgeous! (Also, since I've been absent from the internet, I wasn't even aware you had gotten married! Congratulations!)

    1. Thank you! She does make her own clutches but also has some sewing help as her business is constantly growing.

  4. I know what you mean about everything being relatively the same, and the word "husband" seeming a bit foreign, but I did feel that on deeper level, had settled, if that makes sense.

    Anyways, I love this post so much! So happy for you both.

    1. Yeah, mostly because we've been living together for so long already! But it's kind of a relief to have it finally be official. Thank you so much!

    1. Thank you! I like it too. Most of the colours we ended up using (I didn't have a very strict colour scheme in mind) were pale pink and that sort of deep blue.
