I promise my blog isn't just devoted to weddings although it may seem that way. I have attended 2 weddings in 3 weeks that have been blog-worthy, which is why there has been an overload of bells and brides. This past weekend, I traveled to southern California to be in my close friends' Hilary and Josh's wedding. They had so many wonderful handmade elements in their wedding- from a fingerprint tree guestbook to felted boutonnieres and corsages fashioned by the bride herself. They were hitched in an open field nestled in the mountains and the reception was held in a nearby old western town (also known as Paramount Ranch, home to many famous John Wayne movies). It was way cool.

(R) A trunk of costumes for guests to dress up as those from the wild wild west.

Her dress was purchased on eBay with many alterations made by the
mother and grandmother of the bride. The groom sported gray Van slip-ons
with his dark gray 3-piece suit.
