With less than 50 days until John and I tie the knot (again), I thought it was high time I share our progress and some of the things we've learned along the way.
One of the most interesting things about planning this celebration has been the realization of the shift in my personal aesthetic over the last few years. Those of you reading this blog for years have seen it, and anyone who visited our first Baltimore apartment knows how different our home looks now. My hyper-romantic style and John's modernist bent have blended into something traditional, classic and clean. My blog has changed over the years, too, and I think the latest incarnation of A Crimson Kiss represents my love of distilled elegance.
So despite all the empirical evidence available to me about what we'd want our wedding to look like, it was a bit uncomfortable to declare in such a big, unchangeable, eternal way that this is us. Because you don't exactly get to redo letterpress invitations. And when I came home on Saturday night and discovered our gorgeous stationery suite waiting to be stamped and sent to our nearest and dearest, I felt such excitement and confidence – because it felt like seeing those years of blending our furniture, our families, and ourselves on paper. It was the best moment of wedding planning yet.
