My Second Wedding

A couple months back I got to be a part of a wonderful photo shoot.  It was so much fun.  Many of you might have seen the gallery of images, but I thought I would re-post many of my favorites.  The pictures were featured on Style Me Pretty, a popular wedding blog, and you can see the whole gallery here.
The photos were taken by Brienne Michelle Photography.  She is really really talented.  I was so impressed with the pictures.  My hair, which was super awesome, was done by the fabulously talented Anna Quinn.  Makeup was done by Kristen.  I felt like a rockstar!

Lavar and I were married 4 years ago.  Unfortunately, I wasn’t all that involved in the wedding planning.  This wedding gown is designed . Don’t get me wrong, mom, it wasn’t you!!  I wish I would have, but you know, young and stupid, I didn’t put much thought into it and I didn’t know much better.  The photography was one thing I didn’t like.  He wasn’t creative.  Our poses are us just standing there.  No props. Nothing fun. Such a bummer.

But these pictures… I LOVE these pictures!  She was so creative with the lighting and poses and telling me where to look and what to do.  Cuz let’s face it, I’m no model and I had no idea what looked good.  She was probably getting a good laugh editing these.  “She thought she was so sexy!! hahaha”

So these pictures are my new wedding pictures.  I love them.  I am even gonna get them printed out and hang them.


The only problem is that guy on the left there, don’t know him.  And the girl on the right, I actually know her, so I guess that’s okay.


With all this beautifying going on, I almost actually felt like I could have been a model!  But then real life kicked in and I remembered how much I liked to eat.



We had a blast at the reception! haha

Since I have been settling in here, I haven’t scheduled too many posts and I am working at night so I don’t get to put that much time into the blog.  Not as much as I would like to anyway.  But my plans are 1 hair video and 1 makeup tutorial a week along with some outfit posts and whatever else I feel like writing about.  What do you think?  Is there anything you would like to see or not like to see here?  What are your favorites?  What do you expect when you come to my blog?  Sorry for the questionnaire, just trying to get some direction!!

Happy Monday!

    I think your post ideas sound great. Just don't forget to sneak in a few pics of those peanut butter boys once in a while! They are too cute to miss out on!

    these photos are amazing! i also love your dress, so casual, but the length of it added a warm flair to it!

    I love the hair and makeup stuff.. It helps me alot when I see other people doing it. And I agree.. pics of your boys. They are adorable! 🙂

    Fantastic photos! You both look great (and very much like models!).

    I tend to stick around blogs for the writer, not necessarily the writing. I think as long as you write what you're interested in and therefore write well about, it will fit in well on your blog. I guess most people come here for the fashion, but I also enjoy your writing about living in France, life with your boys, etc.

    I agree with Kate R on your blog…love the hair and makeup stuff but also enjoy reading about your life and studs!

    That photography is wonderful! So creative, quirky, romantic and fun. And you were nothing short of stunning! To answer your questionaire: I love how your blog is a mix of fashion and beauty advice/inspiration, mixed in with the fun stories of your family and living in a foreign country. I am looking forward to seeing some of your hair and makeup tutorials for sure too!

    What a great idea! I need to do the same. I had virtually no wedding and hated my hair and makeup. Thanks for the inspiration! Stopping in from SITS!
