My Baby Sister's Wedding: Ceromony and Reception


My little sister got married in October... and earlier this month she left us and moved to India to live with her husband. I miss her, but I'm SO happy for her. 


Today I wanted to share her beautiful day with you all. It was seriously the most beautiful wedding I have ever seen. If I could re-do my wedding, I'm sure I would steal most of her ideas. Lol!


Since she was having a small wedding, they had the ceremony and reception in one room & it was breathtaking. 

For anyone wondering where it was held, it was at 701 Whaley St. in SC.


The venue was a historical restored building with STUNNING halls, pillars, and chippy paint gorgeousness! It was a designer's dream.


She had the ceremony and reception in the same room, which I was unsure of at first, but it actually worked brilliantly. 

I just have to say, because it's not already apparent, that I worked my butt off (along with many other wonderful family members who came up for the wedding!) to make this room look this good. 

DIY runs in the family. 'Nuff said. To summarize, we were all limping out to the car EXHAUSTED as soon as the wedding was done. 


But it was worth it! I'll be sharing a few of the DIY's at a later date, but lets just say that most of my home decor ended up in her wedding. Not even joking. LOL!

DIY Watercolor Anthropologie Floral Wallpaper


So I have been DYING over this adorable Floral Wallpaper from Anthropologie ever since I laid eyes on it... but I'm a dirt cheap type of person... and my DIY skillz are a great excuse for my husband to bar me from buying stuff so that we can save money...

Well, I was looking at this gorgeous, crush-worth wallpaper, when I had a light bulb moment. 

You know, the type you try to hide from your husband because it will just confirm what he's been suspicious of for quite a while... you know... 

That you are CraZy. 

Yup. I confirmed it for him. I painted myself some wallpaper. And it's darn pretty!
