How did we get here? Well, in July of 2008, I was proposed to by a dashing young man, otherwise known as my husband, Mr. Owl (names have been changed to protect the innocent). From that point on, I was submersed into the world of weddings, and subsequently experiencing sensory overload. Color schemes, dinner menus, centerpieces … oh my! It was new, and it was exciting and I just took it all in and felt like I was in my element.
Our wedding has since come and gone, but in the aftermath of the most amazing celebration we’ve ever experienced, I came to realize that the wedding world helped me to find my personal style. In doing that, I was able to create and plan our wedding to reflect us – the quirky, modern, inspired-by-all-things-vintage team that we are. I will always be grateful that we had the opportunity to celebrate our marriage in a way that felt natural and comfortable to both of us.
And now, I truly believe that every bride- and groom-to-be deserves the same! The Elegant Owl is here to inspire brides looking for the perfect way to celebrate their individuality with their soon-to-be husbands (and if we get any grooms here visiting, well, I’ll be darned, I’m doing my job well!). Check back for some of your very own sensory overload that I’ll be delivering to you every day.
For now, I’ll leave you with my and Mr. Owl’s favorite image from our very own wedding:
