An inside look at my own wedding!

KittyMeowWedding

Hello friends! Hope your Monday is off on the right foot. I woke up this morning with a little extra pep in my step as today marks the two year wedding anniversary to my wonderful, kind, sweet, handsome husband, Nate.  

The traditional gift for Year 2 is cotton! Check back next week to see what fun ideas I came up with for gifts. I can't wait to share with you, but I should probably give them to Nate first! Need ideas for Year 1 Anniversary gifts, Paper? A Kitty Meow Lyric Art Print with your first dance or favorite song makes the PERFECT gift! 

Below are some pictures from my wedding day, specifically stationery details that were designed by yours truly. The theme evolved into what I call a "Sophisticated Circus." I wanted it to be fancy, but still a whole lotta fun, and filled with personality! The color palate I choose was navy, gray, blush, and nude, with rose gold accents. We got married at the Kiva Club at Vistancia in Arizona, and it was a destination wedding for about 96% of our 100 guests. The day went by so fast, but I'm so grateful that our fabulous photographer, Trevor Dayley, was there to capture it all. (Side note, our original photographer cancelled a month before the wedding! I thought I was going to have a wedding induced heart attack. It was a blessing in disguise though, as Trevor is one of the premier wedding photographers in the country! We lucked out FOR REAL.) 

Throughout you'll see shout outs to some of our awesome vendors. Enjoy!

Something borrowed - earrings from my best friend Shannon that she wore on her wedding day. Something old - a sweet locket with my late Grandma Hartline's picture and handkerchief from my Great Grandma Piccony. And a "silver sixpence in my shoe" from my Mother-In- Law, Mama Kimmy.
