I'm a little abrasive and am sometimes known as '80 Grit.' So I love sparkles and fluffy things that make me cry (seriously), and all that girly stuff, especially vintage, but I also like loud music, not showering regularly, and tattoos. After all, I am pretty bad ass. I live with CTA, an old cat, and the infamous Naughty Naughty Bacon in the photographer's old house on Commonwealth. I love to make pretty things and reading beat-nik books. I like wedding planning even though that probably jinxes my shot at one. If I wasn't so lazy, I'd get a lot more accomplished, but right now, I'm ok with that.
That is as much of a positive connection as I need.
I'm more concerned about the fact that I ate approximately 7,000,000 calories. I complained about this last weekend and you probably thought I was exaggerating. Maybe I was then. I am not now. I woke up at midnight. Ready to vomit. Seriously. From being so full. Not pleasant. A certain Chili Cookoff took place. There was plenty of trash talking. I learned some things and called a truce.
some of the spread sans chili
vegetarian chili-very good regardless of the fact that its an oxymoron
grape jelly meatballs
cupcakes I successfully avoided...in favor of cheddar ale fondue (not pictured) even though I love store bought cupcakes.
Thanks to the fine folks at Green Wedding Shoes, I found this gem of a wedding! Seriously. So many elements I love. This may be- dare I say it- my favorite wedding. It was photographed by the very talented Kelty of Steep Street. I pretty much stole all the pictures- because they are all too perfect. She also did engagment photos for Khali and Potsch- that you can find here.
Married in front of their new 'family tree'
Scraps of fabric tie the whole audience together and matching bridesmaids' shoes- not dresses- but I love the peacock palette
