Vacation Part 4: The Wedding!!!!

Sorry its taken me so long to post something. I wanted to post pics of the wedding and since I didn't take any myself, and the photographers are so beautiful, I wanted my sister to come and guest blog to show you them herself:)

Let me introduce her to you.....
Carmen, blog world. Blog world, Carmen.
My older sister.
She is a dog lover with 2 little pups; Hailey and Bennett.
She is a very talented stylist, and has he ability to make you look like a super model.
She loves to craft. And after planning her wedding, wants to become a wedding planner, and is actually doing it for a girl she works with. Go em sis!!
So with out further ado here she is to answer questions I asked her:

Please tell everyone something about you:
~ I Love the color coral, it my favorite, and as you see in the pictures, it played a major roll!

What was your inspiration behind the details of the wedding? :
~ I wanted it to have a rustic and elegant feel, something along the lines of Rachel Ashwell. As well as have the colors ivory and coral, also to have a touch of the beach, since that is one of my favorite places to be.

How long did it take you to plan everything:
About 10 months start to finish. If you really ask me, it took about 8 years to plan, since that's how long I was waiting to get engaged:)

How did you feel on the big day?:
~ Overwhelmed with happiness, being surrounded by family and friends who you love. Beautiful because it is the prettiest day of your life. And VERY IN LOVE

What was your favorite part of the whole wedding experience?:
~ Planning and designing things with Christina online almost every night,everything from the jam jars to her coming to visit in May and searching for the barn wood for the wedding sign. The night before the wedding at the Bed and Breakfast with just the girls.And of course marrying my other best friend:)

Now on to the photos, How did you chose your photographer?:
~ After nearly 6 months of looking I kept hitting dead ends. The kind of photography that I liked, the photographers were really expensive. Until I heard about about Mathew Wright of  Fig Tree Photography through a Friend, and he was perfect, within my budget and a great guy too!

Here are some of my favorite photographs, I hope you all enjoy them!! Thanks for letting me be here with you today.

I heart faces~ Purple

I chose another photo of my niece for this weeks challenge on I heart faces. I think she's just so darn cute, and purple was a hard one. I don't have too many photos with that color in them, and of coarse me being me, I wait till last minute and don't have time to go out and take anything:)

Go here and see more purple photo entries:

Over my Head ~ I heart faces photo challenge

When I saw that I heart faces challenge this week was "Over my head" and it could be anything that is literally over your head. I mean the possibilities are endless, but I just knew exactly what photo I wanted to use. Not very original because lots of little kids put buckets on their heads, but it's her expression accompanied by the bucket that makes me crack up every time I look at it!  And I know that she was walking all by herself, leaving behind her cousins, not paying attention to ANYONE. She was in her own little world, not trying to grab anyone's attention with her silliness, and it's that that makes it so funny to me!!:) I love my niece to pieces!!!

You can go here to see some pretty cool interpretations of this challenge:
