Wedding Photos

Now that I have all the photos from everyone, I wanted to share some of my favorite photos from our wedding in Nara, Japan.

Location : Nara, Japan / Main dress : Ian Stuart / Jacket : Sretsis / Shoes : Stuart Weitzman



My maid-of-honor and I getting ready. We were reenacting the long process of making sure my eyebrow makeup looked even (I always ask SM if my eyebrow makeup looks even and if it didn't I knew he would have noticed immediately). Our matching sleep shirts are from J Crew.


We ended up scheduling way more time than we actually needed to get ready so my Mom, my maid-of-honor and I were able to just relax (...I was too excited to relax).


One detail from our wedding that I love so much is that we both wore leather jackets. It was so very us. We did not plan on doing it, but once we found my jacket while shopping at Sretsis it just seemed perfect.


(my shoes were my something blue)


My 'Glam Squad'. I think there were more people helping me get ready than there were attending the actual wedding. It was so nice haha.


My Mom, maid-of-honor and I were given a ride down to the chapel and I spent the whole ride telling them stories to try and make them laugh so that we wouldn't all cry (but all of my stories were only funny to me haha).


After the ceremony, we were given a ride in this car back to the hotel. It was one of our favorite moments because it was the first moment alone together and everything felt so dreamy and magical.


My second dress and second hairstyle (I couldn't decide between having my hair up or down, so I was happy that they were able to do it both ways).


We had the most whimsical feeling dinner after the ceremony. My favorite moments were : the speeches (everyone gave one), when people gave us advice (everyone went around the table and shared their marital advice), when everyone shared the trivial thing that terrifies them the most, and at the end when we played celebrity heads.


After dinner, SM and I ran through the halls of the hotel laughing (I cannot remember why?) and afterwards I briefly fell asleep surrounded by all of the flowers. It was honestly my most favorite day ever.

Ladurée Aoyama


Ladurée Aoyama

I know it has been a long time since I have posted anything so I want to apologize (mostly to myself) for the neglect. I was getting married though, which feels like an appropriate excuse. But let’s put that behind us and move forward.

As you probably know, Slow Magic and I traveled to Japan with our families to get married (I plan to post more pics from that soon), which was so so so much fun. That being said, I have an overwhelming amount of pictures from the trip so I figured I should just start posting some. While I know these pics are low res (for fun, let’s pretend together that they are high res…hi-res?), they are from one of my favorite days of the trip. It was Slow Magic’s birthday and we spent the morning having lunch with our families and walking to Harajuku. We eventually split off into groups, and while walking to the Redwing shoe store with my parents, we happened upon a Ladurée in Aoyama. It was perfect because we all had been wanting to find a place to sit and have a drink (we had been walking in the sun and were tired and thirsty…almost angry at that point haha) and I was able to get SM something sweet to eat from a place he likes quite a bit on his birthday.
