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.
