My (New-Orleans Themed) Dream Wedding Ideas

Yes, you read that incredibly lengthy title correctly. As of the last few years of my life, I have always wanted a warm and whimsical Louisiana flavored wedding. Sometimes, when i am poking around on pinterest, I get caught up on other wedding ideas, but as soon as I go into a Pappadeaux, or take a trip to Disneyland, I regain my overwhelming instinct in what I knew was right all along. Bring out the shrimp gumbo and the jazz, and let me show you what I am thinking:

String Lights, Banana Pudding, Wedding Dress, Sparklers, Jumbalaya, Chalk Board Decor, and The Greatest Ring I Have Ever Seen.

Alright, now I’ll be upfront with you all. While I have been as far south as Houston, TX, I have (sadly) never been to New Orleans. I am hoping to fix that soon though. So, with that said, I am very aware that my magical idea of the 1940’s jazzland is probably just that; a magical far-fetched dream of the actual truth. All I have to go off of is the Disney rendition of New Orleans (*aaheem* Princess and the Frog and Disneyland’s New Orlean’s Square). I would like to say this though… I’m fine with that, and I would LOVE noting more than to theme my future wedding off of that 🙂

designlovefest / dreamworld style shoot

It is no secret with for people who know me how much I ADORE Bri Emery, the mastermind behind my favorite blog designlovefest. She recently had a deliciously brilliant photo shoot which she starred in and art-directed. Below are some of the outtakes (you can see the photos that made the cut on her blog) that I had to share.

Bri, you don’t know me, but you continue to inspire me. Keep creating magical things!

This is Happening

I am going to see Gotye in a few weeks, as well as a million other FANTASTIC bands. I am also going to see Kimbra this summer. This is going to happen. I am indeed bragging. Brag brag brag brag brag. I am so excited. Ok, i need to breathe.

I was on Gotye’s facebook page today, which lead me to an article VH1 had done on Gotye and Kimbra, and there were a myriad of breathtaking photos of the pair. I had to share some here:

Now, if you’ll excuse me while I clean up all this drool that has seemed to have escaped from my mouth while I was being a creepster over these ridiculous photos.
