Bar Cart

Last week Markel bought a Bar Cart from Target (post here) and decorated it with stuff we had at home and things we bought from Crate & Barrel after our wedding.    We looked at a bunch of pictures on Pinterest and online and decided what would go on our bar cart and what wouldn’t.  We currently have a wine rack, so we didn’t need to keep those things on there…

We still think it’s missing a liiiitle something…but we’ll figure that out later.  Probably a plant, or something non-alcohol related. =)

Bar Carts

Markel and I are looking for a bar cart right now and we haven’t been able to find anything we love in our price range.  Who knew it would be so hard??

I love gold, so I’d like it to be that color or something else in that color family.

After the wedding, Markel and I went to crate and barrel and bought all the big essentials for it, but after 6 months…haven’t been able to buy the cart itself.  FRUSTRATINGGG.

as my search continues, here are some that i really like. ❤

Wedding Pictures (Part V)

Oops, totally forgot to post these from a few months before!  The last and final post of the wedding ❤

The Reception!

This day feels soOOOOoo long ago.  I can’t believe we got married and are currently living a newlywed life…so weird! lol  Feels like yesterday when Markel and I met and were having a blast as early 20-somethings.  But 5+ years later…here we are as a married couple. ❤

Markel and Me…5 years in the making~!

I know we’re not supposed to celebrate dating anniversaries once you’re married…but WHATEVER.  haha Isn’t it nice to still celebrate the beginning when it all happened?  Mike and I had a summer fling that turned into…a budding romance and marriage ❤

I think this lovely picture sums up the beginingg of US.

I love when Pinterest shows these sorts of duplicates.  I love NYX makeup already so it’s great to see that it compares with MAC colors!

Fun Friday: Wedding Moments

My favorite people in the entire world~~ I didn’t get to take group pictures with people (so sad) but I was lucky enough to take them with my favorite people at the end of the night next to the Bar (go figure… that’s where they all were).

The Morning of the Wedding!

The morning of the wedding…the calm and fun times before the big day.  My bridesmaids were AWESOME as they helped me get ready, helped with the flowers, and also made sure I was eating/drinking!  Here’s a collage of our morning together, as my last moment as Ms. Esther Chang.

These are all from a simple point and shoot camera.  Professional pics to come ❤

Rehearsal Dinner, Wedding Prep, Bridal Party Madness

All the unglamourous wedding prep of Thursday Night and Friday Morning…

Wedding Prep and Hotel Madness

I would have to say, that the night before the wedding was probably one of the most fun nights.  Our entire bridal party stayed in the same hotel, on the same floor.  We all hung out, drank, danced, the boys dared each other to do stupid things, and we did some flower prep for the wedding.  Overall, it was probably the most relaxed I had been for a while~~ The Big Day was already upon us and all I had to do was enjoy being with y closest friends ❤

Here are some random fun photos of the night~~ Only the blog appropriate ones.  hehe

Work Bridal Shower: Congratulations Libby!

Wedding Makeup and Hair (trial…and ideas)

A few weekends ago, I was in a wedding and I tried out one hair-style that I really loved.  I am really considering it for my wedding!

I love how the hair cascades and frames my face, but the rest is up in a formal up-do.  My make-up below is done by myself, but i”ll be getting it professionally done on the day of.  What do you think?  Is it a wedding-do?
