DIY Quote Canvas

Our bedroom in our cozy little apartment is rather simple. We have two closets spanning the entire one wall, a bed, a dresser, a window, a floor lamp and a sitting chair; that Andrew loves to use as a clothes hanger of some sort. It’s nothing fancy and almost every single item in the room […]

DIY Project: Will You Be My Bridesmaid?

When a bride-to-be happens to be super cute, super fabulous and super talented, I can’t help but squeal with delight when she sends me the most adorable project ever. There’s no doubt a whole lot of thought goes into proposals these days. But how often do newly engaged chicks really consider how they’ll ask their gal […]

Friday Wrap Up

It’s been a crazy two weeks over here at Hey Gorgeous! From the double feature week over at Style Me Pretty (which you can read about here and here) to the recap overload detailing every little bitty part of our wedding day (please tell me you sort of feel like you were a guest at […]

The Dessert Dresser Finale

“I have a dresser I am bringing in, sort of like an actual dresser you might use to put your clothes in,” was one of the phrases I consistently explained to people in the months leading up to our wedding. It was so difficult for people to conceive that I was going to use a […]

Our Wedding Details {Part II}

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you’ll know I am obsessed with details. Completely and utterly infatuated with the lovely little things that make a wedding or event so special. I became so involved and wrapped up in the creation of the details for our day that on more than one occasion, […]

Our Wedding Details {Part I}

I really wanted to have a vintage vibe to our wedding and throughout the majority of the planning process did my best to stick to this vision. Yet, now that I’ve looked back on our photos I’m not sure if the whole vintage theme really fits the description of our day. To be honest, I’m […]

Our Wedding Ceremony

I’m not sure I can accurately describe what it’s like to get married. And I don’t mean the entire experience of having a relationship, planning a wedding, and doing things that “married” folk typically do. But walking down the center of a crowd that has seemingly parted for you, sharing your deepest feelings in front […]

Our Balloon Release

Throughout our entire engagement, there was one thing that always stood out in the back of my mind. Regardless of where, when and how we would get and be married, it was important to somehow pay tribute to my sweet Nan; she was one of the most important people in my life and losing her […]

Our First Look {Part II}

These series of First Look photos are some of my favourtites from our wedding day. When our gallery of images was first posted online, I skimmed through the hundreds of proofs anxiously clicking through each page trying to soak it all in. Because of the size of the thumbnails, I was never really able to […]

Our First Look {Part I}

Andrew and I decided to do a first look. Although we never really discussed making this decision we just sort of fit it into our timeline that day. My thoughts were not only will a first look provide our photographer with a chance to get some photos of just the two of us, but having […]

Getting Ready {The Guys}

It was around 3:00 pm the afternoon of our wedding when one of my groomsmen called my cell phone to ask where I was. I told him I was in my room getting ready but the truth was I was up there trying to calm down my nerves. My nerves weren’t kicking in because I […]

Getting Ready {The Girls}

My dress. Le sigh. After an incredibly busy and somewhat stressful morning the day of our wedding, I was more than happy to finally sit down, champagne glass in hand, make up brushes doing their thing across my cheeks. As I sat there eyes closed, face being transformed, I tried not to let my mind […]
