Justin is sort of a homebody, so my chances of world traveling are few and far between.
I would, however, like to make it out of the country at least once in my life – preferably to a place like Venice or France. Maybe someday when I’m rich and famous 🙂
Because of his homebodiness, I’ve accepted the fact that most of our trips will be within US borders, and I’m 100% okay with that because there are hundreds and hundreds of beautiful and inspiring things to see in the United States.
Today’s wedding theme is themed around maps and travel, and paired with the colors I chose I absolutely adore the idea of this shindig.
A little bit vintage, a lot of fun.
What do you think? Isn’t that ring photo absolutely swoon-worthy? And those field notes notebooks for all of your out of town guests are adorable.
If you’re like me, Barbies were a big part of your childhood. No lie, I played with Barbies until I was about 15 years old (although when I did it then, I called it styling their outfits and hair – not playing).
At one point my very best friend and I combined all of our Barbies together and we’d switch off keeping them at each other’s house. I think I won out on that one because she was an only child and we could convince her parents to buy us any clothes or accessories we wanted. I’ve got all the Barbies, plus 2 convertibles and a Barbie Jeep in a huge toy chest in my basement right now.
When I was working on today’s theme – a million ideas started running through my head about what Barbie + Ken’s dream wedding would look like – it could be all out hot pink + black, retro with black and pink details, or it could be soft and beautiful with teals and light pinks.
I ended up going with the last version because it seems like the most practical/do-able/not over the top day. Plus, I’m basically obsessed with that color palette.
So while this theme may not be as over the top as Barbie’s real wedding would be, it still has those perfectly girly touches that I think she would include in her day.
Plus, Ken would look so good in gray and teal – just sayin’ 🙂 And for all the little girls that show up – there would be little pink tutus for them to take home, that would be too much fun.
You know where this wedding would take place?
Malibu. On the beach next her her Malibu beach house.. right?
Do you still have your Barbies? Where do you keep them?
With my feet on the dash, the world doesn’t matter…
Happy Monday loves!
I hope you had a great weekend – mine started with a quick trip to Des Moines, which is about 2.5 hours away. I truly cherish the road trips that Justin and I take, it’s our time to be silly, listen to the music we love and chat. I love being in the passenger seat next to him.
Today’s song is just that – Passenger Seat by Death Cab for Cutie. I can remember the first time I heard this song – my lovely friend Mandy had it on a mixed CD she made me (haha) and I fell in love.
It reminds me of driving down country roads at that perfect time of year when cool air gathers in the valleys of the hills and you get a little chill. I imagine floating my hand on the air outside the window and silently listening to our favorite songs. Such a great feeling 🙂
When you love something so passionately, you tend to incorporate it into all aspects of your life, including your wedding.
With a profession like photography, you have the perfect motif for your wedding – I picture a dreamy, vintage, indie-style affair with fun but soft colors, retro cameras scattered throughout the decorations, boys in bowties and a gorgeous bride with long flowing hair and a gorgeous vintage style dress.
Here’s what I’m thinking:
Other ways to incorporate cameras would be in the invites and the wedding photos. I love it!
P/S: If you’re looking for vintage cameras – I’ve got a few here and some to rent – let me know!
