Lindsay + Kevin: 05.21.11 (Sneak Peek!)

Monday, May 23rd, 2011

We spent Saturday back at The Darby House for Lindsay and Kevin’s wedding – we had perfect weather, a really wonderful couple and a great time!  Kimberly Potterf Photography captured the day and was nice enough to share a little sneak peek – there are lots more coming (just wait – there was a lot of pretty!) but here are a few of my favorites to hold you over:



I. Love. This. Picture.  This was at the very end of the night – people were dancing around them and the dance floor was packed but Kevin and Lindsay were so lost in each other…so incredibly beautiful and EXACTLY what I hope for every one of Emilie Duncan Event Planning’s couples.

Big thanks to Kimberly for sharing so quickly!!

Megan + Michael: 05.15.11 (Sneak Peek!)

We kicked off our 2011 wedding season on Sunday working with a fantastic couple – Megan and Michael!  Cassidy Dawn Photography captured the day and I can’t wait to share all the photos and fun stories from the day (I promise to be better about that this year, I really do!  I might even catch up on some of the recaps I have from 2010 too!).  Until then, here are a couple sneak peeks of Megan and Michael’s rainy wedding day at The Darby House.

So, so pretty!  Can’t wait to share more – thanks to Cassidy for letting me swipe these!

New Song: This

Tuesday, May 17th, 2011

Waaaaay back when I was in high school, Darius Rucker was the lead singer of Hootie and the Blowfish – nowadays he is out on his own and has gone country.  I heard this song the other day and loved it!  I thought it would be fun for a fast first dance or a fun Anniversary Dance song if you have couples who can two step – not your every day choice but the lyrics are certainly appropriate!

This by Darius Rucker

Got a baby girl sleepin’ in my bedroom
And her momma laughing in my arms
There’s the sound of rain on the rooftop
And the game’s about to start
I don’t really know how I got here
But I’m so glad that I did
And it’s crazy to think that one little thing
Could have changed all of it
Maybe it didn’t turn out like I planned
Maybe thats why I’m such, such a lucky man

For every stoplight I didn’t make
Every chance I did or I didn’t take
All the nights I went too far
All the girls that broke my heart
All the doors that I had to close
All the things I knew but I didn’t know
Thank God for all I missed
Cause it led me here to this

Like the girl that I loved in high school
Who said she could do better
Or the college I wanted to go to
Till I got that letter
All the fights and the tears and the heartache
I thought I’d never get through
And the moment I almost gave up

All led me here to you
I didn’t understand it way back when
But sittin’ here right now
It all makes perfect sense

Every stoplight I didnt make
Every chance I did or I didnt take
All the nights I went too far
All the girls that broke my heart
All the doors that I had to close
All the things I knew but I didn’t know
Thank god for all I missed
Cause it led me here to this

Oh I cried when my momma passed away
And now I got an angel
Looking out for me today
So nothing’s a mistake

Every stoplight I didn’t make
Every chance I did or I didn’t take
All the nights I went too far
All the girls that broke my heart
All the doors that I had to close
Everything I knew but I didn’t know
Thank God for all I missed
Cause it led me here to this

Led me here to this

Etsy Find Friday: Heartsy

Friday, May 6th, 2011

You’ve probably heard of and possibly even bought from the ‘deal a day’ sites like Groupon and Living Social and Eversave and Mamapedia and Faveroo and Plum District and One Kings Lane and RueLaLa and Totsy and Zulily and Gaggle of Chicks and so on – who knew there were so many sites out there?  I actually have a completely separate email folder and address for those since I obviously get multiple emails every day!

I love those sites but if you have been a reader for any length of time, you know I adore Etsy so I was very excited to see that there is now a deal a day site for Etsy shops!!  Brilliant!!!  Heartsy features Etsy shops and offers store credits for fabulous handmade items including stationery, accessories, bath and body products, jewelry and more!  I just bought one from Peachtree Lane which has adorable floral rings and hair pins and one from All Just 4 You which has really cute notecards, notebooks, labels and more – watch for those on a wedding planner or envelope near you very soon!

If you sign up to receive emails from Heartsy and purchase your first deal, we’ll both get a $5 credit in our accounts.  Hope you find something you love from an artist you love!
