every day is an anniversary of falling in love with something.

This may be the only space I inhabit on the internet where I have not posted my wedding photos.

Until now.

It's my blog and I will whore out my photos if I want to. I paid enough for them. Truth be told I am still in love with these photos. I loved my wedding. I thought it was beautiful, fun, and represented Dave and I well. We worked hard to make it ours. I know it is the hip thing to do these days to be understated and intimate with your wedding but I have never been hip. I had the wedding I dreamed of when I was six, complete with giant dress and hundreds of guests. I had a fairy tale wedding which was made more special by the decidedly un-fairy tale story of Dave and I. Well, no fairy tale I ever read involved the internet, another guys baby, and so much back seat fooling around. :)

Three years ago today... the highlights.



















if you have any interest in seeing the rest of the set, they're HERE on flickr.

So that is it. Three years later and I think I have come to the end of what seemed an inexhaustible amount of places to show off my wedding. It has been fun. I should probably steer this blog back in the direction it was intended now. I will, I promise. You can look forward to more spectacular (if I do say so myself) thrifted finds and vintage love here at "the year."

xo Seacrest OUT.

p.s. Don't forget there is ONE DAY left to win goodies from the Magnolia Family Vintage shop in the GIVEAWAY!

that's so sweet thanks Kallie! I have random photos of a lot of people on my comp. It isn't creepy... I don't think? If so, then we are both creepy people.
