I'm hot. But not in a good way.

Right now it's over 100 degrees fahrenheit outside, and not much cooler inside our non air conditioned house. Today Sam, his mother and I headed over to a mall to cool down and spend some gift cards we received for the wedding. At the Fairmont we kind of became addicted to down pillows, so we found some really nice ones, which differ greatly from the pancakes we were using ;)

The rest of the day was spent finding places for all the wonderful wedding gifts we were given. They were all so marvelous, I wanted to display everything, even the pretty food processor, but then we would have no counter space, hehe. I'll just use it all the time :)

Later I'll take photos of everything, but really, it's so hot! I don't really want to get up.

Anyway, since I'm not doing an official wedding post until I have loads of photos to share here are some pre-wedding shots. This is the merry widow my mother bought me at the antique show a few weeks back, as well as the stockings. Both were purchased from the lovely Julie and Lisa, local dealers and sellers. And vintage eye candy. I'm not sure if then have a site or flickr, so if you are reading this girls, let me know!

You can also see a few amazing photos in our wedding set on Vorpal images Flickr.

These photos were taken by Lisa right before the ceremony. Being a photographer she couldn't help but take photos, I could see her clicking finger twitching all morning before she finally caved and brought out her camera ;)

Jessica Cangiano said...

How fanatically lovely! There's a sort of pin-up meets girl-next-door vibe that's so endearingly beautiful about these shots.

Cannot wait to see more from the wedding, and must wish you both huge, joyful congrats again!

Oodles of hugs, sweetie!

This is totally unrelated to this post, but I love your hair! I have a short pixie, but after following your blog for the past few weeks and I'm totally inspired to grow out my hair into big curls!
I'm also inspired to have a blog, maybe I'll start one when school starts up!

Solanah said...

Kelly Anne, I would try ebay, but it's taken me years to find one in my size and price range.

Haha! Don't flag me Shayla!

Bitsy, I used to have a pixie cut too! Well, more Audrey Hepburn, but growing it out was such a pain! Well worth it though ;)

You look so glamorous here! Not that that's in any way unusual. Just beautiful.

Sandra @ Debutanteclothing.com said...

I vote for that back shot to be your new avatar EVERYWHERE! OMG. You're gorgeous. Lucky Sam.

Miriam Parkman said...

Oh oh oh this is just so beautiful!

Mary Van Note said...

Gorgeous. I have to echo Bitsy. But instead of growing my hair out, you've inspired me to cut my hair off! I love your hairstyle.

p.s. May I re-post your photo on my blog? I want to rave about you and your hair.

Solanah said...

Thanks Mary ;)

Go for it!
