c'est la vie 2011!

i'm not gonna to lie - it was a crazy year here at casa subliminalrabbit - noted by my absence from the internet! but it was all worth it...

...because i'm now legally entwined to my best friend and love of my life. (this is the part where you all go "aww!")

i figured i'd wrap up 2011 with a long-overdue post about the wedding!

bryan and i approached the whole thing a little differently, i think, than most. we're not particularly sentimental folk, but we do like a party. so why not throw a huge party and invite all of our friends and family to celebrate the moment with us?

we asked our sisters to perform the ceremony...

... and then got right to the party part!

we had a diorama station...

a photo booth...

... and of course wonderful time spent with those we love most!

the ceremony

party on!

i tried not to get too crazy with the planning and prep. we did hire an invitation designer, whose beautiful work we ended up using for all of our signage as well, and a couple of amazing coordinators to help out with the last hurrah. i made two special pieces for the ceremony, but that was pretty much it -

all in all it was an amazing experience, and totally worth the dough. when else do you get to have everyone who loves you in one place, all there for you?

so good-bye 2011, and here's to an amazing 2012!
