a well traveled cardigan.

Yes. I am rocking baby's breath. It feels so awesomely 1990's.

Last summer, I picked out this very, very green Anthropologie cardigan for my trip to Ireland...where, as I've said many times, I met my husband-to-be and wore it on one of our first dates. A few months ago my friends, who are also my wedding photographers, borrowed the cardi and my little globe collection for a stylized library themed wedding shoot.

When I made my daily stop by Style Me Pretty yesterday, I started screaming, ""That's my CARDIGAN! ON STYLE ME PRETTY! THAT'S MY CARDIGAN!! EEK!" Then I realized how silly + self-absorbed I sounded, and changed my shouts to, "Those are my FRIENDS! On Style Me Pretty!! Those are my wedding photographers!!!"

Sure enough, there was Jeff and Jess's little creative baby, a geek-chic library wedding, on the biggest wedding blog known to brides! My self-absorbed cardigan squealing aside, I am beyond jazzed for them. As friends and now as my wedding photographers, I cannot stop glowing with happiness over their creative successes--they're the most inspired, kind, creative couple you could ever meet. And I know this creative baby was an overhaul--counting the number of hours Jess put into folding little paper airplanes, collecting funky books + hunting down the perfect chairs would leave me dizzy.

After seeing their images posted to Style Me Pretty, I immediately changed into my green cardi in honor of their success and danced a little happy dance. You must go have a peek--it's beyond inspired and such a welcome bold depart from the usual pastel wedding look. (Ahem. My wedding. Pastel overload. Ahem.)
