Wedded Bliss

Weddings are my favorite type of party.

...........Photobucket

Friends, family, love, flowers, cake, dancing... it's got the best of everything, don't you think? I've been to quite a few recently, and I am always interested in the flowers. It's so strange - I never really used to be into flowers... or chocolate. And now they are two of my favorite things.

As some of you know, I got married at the end of 2008. It wasn't even two years ago, and I already thinking up what our Vowel Renewal party will be like. I am always looking at Wedding blogs - I love them.

What's your favorite type of party? And what are some wedding blogs that you like?

Dionne,

These pictures are so beautiful. How fun is it to peak at wedding photos? I love weddings, baby showers, and lavish Christmas parties. One of my past jobs we had our Christmas parties at Ritz Carlton's grand ball room. Gorgeous!! I love an excuse to get dressed up.

Yay, weddings! You look beautiful and I love those flowers! As you know, I haven't planned many details of mine yet, but Snippet&Ink is my favorite blog to get wedding ideas!

My hubby and I are on our way to anniversary #4 and I'm planning our day when we renew our vows! It'll be awesome!

I love this online magazine for weddings! :D

why do you even need to ask? We're two very similar romantic souls, so of course wedding is my favorite kind of party. from pre wedding pictures to everything, ahh... it has to be one on my top list, I believe.

And I enjoy wedding blogs VERY MUCH, hahaha...

and I love that picture of you and your dearest other half, aww... you're so pretty! ;D I demand more of these romantic kind of posts! ;P

oh, hello friend. said...

lol dionne you are too cute. my friend commented "i wish i could get married again" and i told her to have a 5 year reception party so she could plan it all again.
i certainly love weddings though planning my own is quite stressful. you look so beautiful in your dress! i cant wait to be married to nick for 2 years ;) i just want it to happen now!

xo.

Thanks for sharing pics! You were a beautiful bride :) While I am no where near getting married, I cannot resist reading wedding blogs- Once Wed, Style me Pretty, and 100 layer cake, to name a few :)

Amanda said...

Oh, Dionne - your wedding pictures are gorgeous! And hydrangeas are my very favorite flowers. Very favorite.

LBB said...

Oh what sweet, pretty photos!!! You look stunning! I love weddings too...weddings and tea parties. :)

L'Atelier said...

Love your wedding pics, dionne.
my favorite kind of party are small parties with friends and family just because, naturally with delicious food in great surrounding.
this could be a braai at the beach naturally all casual or dinner party at a wine estate everybody in black tie... your imaginations are the limits kind of a thing :) find if we not more than 30, i have the best time.

Nicole-Lynn said...

Beautiful wedding pics!
My favorites are weddings as well :) Check out my blog sidebar for some great wedding blogs/inspiration! :)

K said...

Aww, you made such a beautiful bride!

Dionne said...

Just so y'all know - the top two flower pics are from another wedding - not mine. Not that I don't LOVE those flowers, I do - but my wedding was a fall wedding, so those weren't in season at the time :(

maggisaar said...

I will always have such fond memories of your wedding! It was so much fun. And so beautiful. And just...oh, Dionne, it was perfect and I'm so glad we were able to be there.

Has it really not even been two years? It seems like so long ago!

I'd love to do a proper wedding with Steve one day, but I am happy that we just, had a small day and got it over with. Wedding Drama is so silly to me!

Now I have to just get through the baby shower stuff. Which, reminds me, I need to get in touch with the girl who is throwing it!

I love you, darling. Hi to B! It's been tooo long.

Erika said...

Such a beautiful blog post. You are gorgeous and those pictures are just stunning. I love the lighting and focus! :)

Carissa said...

I absolutely love the flowers you had at your wedding! they are so pretty and cheerful!

I love looking at weddings, too, and daydreaming about what mine would look like. I always see so many great things and elements that I'd want to incorporate into my future nuptials, but sometimes the wonderfulness is overwhelming almost! I'd have to have dozens of weddings because I have just too many ideas and too much lovely inspiration! :)

Meghan said...

Oh Dionne, you are so stunning! I am so glad you posted these pics! I love weddings myself and even though mine is over, I still love looking at pictures!

photojoy said...

I'm not familiar with a recent Japanese wedding party here. But I'm quite sure all the beautiful pictures and wedding blogs will be so useful hints for my daughter's and my son's weddings, hopefully some time in the near future.

I was just at a friends' wedding with my guy, and I was all kinds of excited, and he asked how come, since I've been there and the divorce and all, and I said that no matter what, I still believe in REAL love and the whole spiritual idea of weddings, and vows (I completely take the religious part out, which is what I lost faith in...)
You guys look amazing together!!

Barbara said...

Really can't help you with wedding blogs,Dionne. Sorry...
Lilies of the valley are my favorite flower, but I got married in the fall too, so they were out of contention in my bouquet.

Now parties I can talk about. Love cocktail parties best...the food is always fun to prepare and everyone leaves after a couple hours so the fun is intense while it lasts.

P.S. I love this... said...

Your photos are so beautiful. I think weddings are my fav type of party too!! I got married last August and I want to have a renewal party every year! lol

Thanks for stopping by my blog.. the young guy is truly talented.

Carol {Everyday Delights} said...

I love your pictures! you look so pretty!!!

Kristin said...

I'm right their with you lady. I talked the hubs into a five year renewal celebration!

Gaia said...

I've already told you but your images and illustration leave me always breathless and speechless. I wish I could make half of your illustrationS!
You are so nice and perfect...

thenextarrow said...

adorable post! my favorite type of parties are the ones the fall in early autumn, so you can mingle inside and also have a bonfire. i love the smell of smoke mingling with good drinks + conversation.

Oh, my favorite wedding page would have to be OnceWed.com - I scoured the entire website the first week of my engagement! Weddings are my favorite party too (especially now!), and maybe because they have the most significance.

Thank you for responding about the flowers - I'll have to look in the huge plant encyclopedia someone loaned me!

love,
Cait

Weddings can be so polarizing, I've been to some that are great and make me anticipate the next one and I've been to others that bring on the dread. I think my favorite type of party is a birthday because each person celebrates it in their own special one and you really get to see who that person is.

Nicole Marie said...

your dress is so pretty! and you look beautiful!!

Truly Smitten said...

you look BEAUTIFUL!!! You and your hubbie make such a gorgeous couple!

Bridget said...

your blog is so pretty.

monkeyandsquirrel said...

that picture of you and your father is so beautiful! as far as wedding blogs that i love... i'm a huge fan of the offbeat bride. the mr and i were definitely less then your traditional bride and groom. it was so nice, when we were planning our wedding, to read about other folks who found it ok to think outside the box.

Joanna Goddard said...

oh, dionna, the photo of you two together is SOOOO sweet. you look so in love!! joannaxo

Hey Dionne,

I love weddings of course! Weddings are very significant events. What I enjoy most about being an event consultant is that I get the privilege of being a part of one of the most important days of the bride and groom's life.

Of course, I love our wedding blog:

www.experienceexquisite.typepad.com

But I also love Preston Bailey's website and blog:

www.prestonbailey.com

He is one of our favorite event designers.
