Wedding Wednesdays: My Wedding Shoes

In today’s installment of Wedding Wednesdays, I wanted to introduce you to my wedding shoes! *Drum roll, please!* Let me just say, this selection sort of shocked me. I was convinced I would end up with Jimmy Choo’s or a pair of Manolo Blahnik’s that were just shy of $800 (I’m cursed with expensive taste, remember!) I’m happy to report my shoes were far less than $100, and they perfectly match my color scheme of blush pink and gold…seriously, though…how pretty are these! LOOK! LOOK! These…

Wedding Wednesdays: A Wedding Ready Smile with Smile Brilliant + Giveaway

This post is in collaboration with Smile Brilliant I’m going to be completely honest, not long after I got engaged (I’m talking like later that same day) I began planning. It’s in my DNA to be organized, proactive, and well, prepared.

The toning up thing takes time, dedication, and discipline (I’m happy to…

Wedding Wednesdays: Progress Report Vol. 2

January 12th marked 7 months until I’m officially Mrs. Villari! Somebody figure out how to slow down time, because it is flying.

Today, I wanted to update you on the decisions and plans I’ve made since then. Things are definitely coming together, and I’m loving every moment! What I’ve Planned Since the…

Wedding Wednesdays: Our Save the Dates

We checked another thing off our wedding to do list, and I’m feeling good! If the title didn’t already give it away, Ted and I ordered save the dates, and once they’re addressed (thanks, calligraphy-doing-mother!) they’ll be ready to go out in the mail! I knew I wanted to send out hard-copy, paper save the dates, but I also didn’t want to break the bank (let’s face it, weddings are expensive enough, already!) I immediately began doing research about various places to order save the…

Wedding Wednesdays: Our Engagement Photos

A few weeks back, Ted and I had our engagement session with our too awesome for words photographer, Ben Elsass. (Seriously, if you’re in the market for a Cincinnati based wedding photographer, I’d highly recommend him!) And I’m so excited to share some of the photos with you, today! (We ended up with 126 images, and it was hard to narrow them down for this post…I tried haha) Before I share my favorite shots with you, I wanted to quickly discuss some important things to consider for your engagement shoot: Time of…
