Tying the Knot--Creatively

My brother, George was recently married. No one ever believes that he's younger than me--but I've got 2.5 years on him. He and his new wife Julie had an awesome blow out wedding. I don't plan on having a traditional wedding myself, but I enjoyed all the lavish celebrations and friends and family around at theirs. Not to mention, it was the best dance party I've ever been too. That's George and I swing dancing. But just take one look at my mom pictured below and even total strangers will have to agree. Weddings are really a time to let your inner self shine through. Now I'm talking about brides, not controlling wedding guests-bitches. If I ever were to decide to throw a big wedding bash, I'd want to do it with the help of fellow artists and crafters. Everything thing would be unique, one of a kind, and have a special touch that reflected my personality (oh yea, and the grooms, sure, whatever). I think many other women feel the same way I do. There are so many awesome possibilities at your fingertips. It only takes a little exploring to find the perfect pieces. Who knows, with such incredible work, I just might end up having a wedding myself. Take a look at what I've fallen in love with on Etsy:


  1. Those pic's look like everyone is having such a great time!

  2. Have you seen this gal's work:
    I'm ordering my non-veil from her.

  3. Great blog, Mary! Photos and stories are well composed! :)
