As promised, here are the recaps for my wedding in August!

I slept in until 7:30 am (yes, it is sleeping in – that’s what time I usually start work at!) and went for a run with my sister Anne, my maid of honour. Note that I am by no means a runner – I would much rather bike. However, I have this tendency to start biking and not stop for a long while, which wasn’t desirable for being on time on my wedding day.

Yes, that is a cow shower-cap.

… and created a newlywed blog. It probably won’t be super exciting, but I’ll try my best. It’s still “under construction”, but what isn’t?


I will probably do some kind of wedding recap. Then perhaps a few more wedding related things to help me deal with PWTS and show off my wonderful husband. Or if I am feeling creative. 🙂

As a peace offering, I will give you this cute picture with my dog:

That's Lucky being held by Mama Bean.

Just for the record, I love my dog.

Let’s face it – I am not a good poser for those lovely dramatic, romantic shots. Neither is Mr Bean, really. It’s just not us:

I think we look fine (silly), but this is more where it is at:

Dancing… Yeah! Part 2

Let’s begin where we left off last time:

Exhibit 4: Love song (aka. slow) dancing

We had a surprising amount of people dance at our wedding – I think they were even off the dance floor! They also allowed my photographer to take some shots like these:

I was reading something and I came along this game called “Love, Hate, Friendship or Marriage?”

Here are the rules:

“The origin of this game is unknown. In olden times, the game was played as follows: A curious lass (though we don’t suppose there would be any harm if it were a lad) would write down her name, and the name of the lad (or lass) to whom her heart belonged.

She would then examine every letter in her name, and if it appeared in his name she would cross it off in each name. She would then label the remaining letters with L, H, F, and M (for Love, Hate, Friendship, and Marriage), repeated from the beginning of her name, to the end of his. Whatever letter was used last was said to indicate the kind of relationship the two of them could expect in the future.”

– Villainy Amusements

Happily, I played this game with both my married name and my maiden name and it said that we were destined for marriage. That’s good, for the damage has already been done 😉

(Note: I blocked out our last name for privacy sake 🙂 )

Mr. Bean and I went this evening to pick up our actual professional photos. They are amazing! We are both very happy with the work that Kathleen of Precious Portrait did.

A few teasers:

= love.

Dancing… Yeah! Part 1

I’m not bashful in saying that I LOVE dancing but I am not very good at it. But that doesn’t stop me from having fun (and making a fool of myself)! I guess one could say that one of the “themes” of my wedding celebration was dancing – for lots of it happened! 🙂

Exhibit 1: Bachelorette Party

For my bachelorette party, we went burlesque dancing. It’s safe to say that attempting to shimmy in a strapless bra that is too big is not the most pleasant experience. (And I still can’t shimmy!) Unfortunately there are no pictures of us dancing, but we do like to pose.

I'm the one on the right in the right with the super hot socks and red boa.
