This one time, I got ready to get married

A lot of people have asked:

“So, Lauren, do you feel different now that you got married?!?”

“Meh. Not really.”

I mean, that’s how it’s supposed to be right? The person you profess to spend forever with (in public, no less) should theoretically be the same person you knew the day before you did that.

But if I’m being really honest, there’s a tinge of contentment and joy that is, in certain moments, wonderfully overwhelming. It doesn’t hurt, I suppose, that our wedding was totally kick ass. Unfortunately, that means you’re going to be living through it on this blog for as long as I feel like it. Fortunately, I have really talented friends and some great documentation.

So… sorry not sorry.

We got ready in our apartment and also at our wonderful neighbors’ place, which kind of looks like a 19th century French salon. This was the best most terrible idea we had – what with a brunch wedding it was really beautiful to roll out of bed and have my hair curled in my kitchen while drinking my morning coffee… but I’d be lying if I didn’t say it was a bit chaotic at times. Anyway, here’s a peek into our morning (photos by the ever-talented Kelly Dwyer, and props in the captions to the amazingly talented team that made us look and feel our very best).
