Dear 2011: A thank you note

 

Dear 2011,

First of all, how are you? You must be starting to feel a bit lonely. Earlier this year, it was all about you. Now, it seems to be more about Mr. 2012. Which is fine, because you’ve really had a great run. Particularly, for me. Which brings me to the purpose of my note.

As you very well know, you’ve let some amazing things happen for me.

I remember this year being FULL of amazing meetings with soon-to-be clients and when I think back at how quickly their weddings came and went, I can’t believe it. I remember sitting in a Starbucks with Lauren, a small cafe with Jessica, and a Panera Bread with Amanda (just to name a fe […]

Favorites of 2011: Wedding Blogs

To continue on in my Favorites series, today I’m showing SOME of my favorite blogs that I’ve really been digging this year. I recently (finally) set-up my Google Reader account properly so it makes viewing, sharing and commenting on said blogs WAY easier (using my fave app: Flipboard).

Again, in no particular order… and remember, these are just SOME. My ultimate list of must-reads is huge.

First up, 100LayerCake never fails to make me gush over their fabulous pop-up shops and real wedding features.

Bayside Bride is a blog that I fell in love for it’s design and then quickly fell in love with the content soon-after. Natalie and Krista a […]

Favorites of 2011: Photos

One of the best parts of the season is the feeling of a “fresh start” come January 1. That being said, 2011 was a FABULOUS year for the crew of DPNAK. Below are SOME of my favorite photos from the 2011 season. For simplicities sake, I limited it to my top six (in no particular order).

Ready? Go.

The first photo was from Amanda and Mark’s wedding by Daniel Moyer. What I truly love about this photo is what you don’t see. First of all, this was the night of Hurricane Irene. Despite the odds, we managed to pull off a fantastic sparkler exit and it was great! Second, right before they were getting ready to exit, I realized I was in the shot […]

One day before Christmas, a lovely #TWIPS (@bacidesigner) gave to me…

Finally, we’ve reached the end of the series and I get to show you one last card from our Holiday Card Exchange by some fellow #TWIPS members. If you’ve been poking in all week, you’ll remember that Jessica from TwoWeddingBelles is the brilliant organizer behind all this holiday love sharing and I’m so happy to have been a part of it!

The final card came from Amanda of Baci Designer next door in Ohio. The card is from her Shirley | Edith collection, sweetly named after her two grandmothers. And you know I’m a sucker for Kraft cards! (mine were kraft too, but not as fancy)

Whew.. hope you enjoyed. And wishing everyone a very Merry Christma […]

Two days before Christmas, a lovely #TWIPS (@makebelieven) gave to me…

All this week, I’ve been sharing my favorite holiday cards from my fellow #TWIPS members. I really can’t say enough how grateful I am to be a part of this great group of people from all over the world.

Today’s card came from Krissy of Make Believe’n out of Atlanta, GA. Krissy has some AMAZING fabric flower awesomeness in her Etsy shop that I plan on spending some time in this lovely morning – so make sure you check it out!

And holy crap! It’s only two days ’til Christmas…ahhhhh! […]

Three days before Christmas, a lovely #TWIPS (@TheStudioBPhoto) gave to me…

All this week, I’ve been showing off my favorite holiday cards from my fellow #TWIPS members. The exchange was wonderfully coordinated by a fellow DOC, Jessica of TwoWeddingBelles.

Today’s card came from Atlanta, Georgia photographer, Becca of Studio B Photography. I love the little checkmarks and highlights from her 2011. And I was pleasantly surprised to flip it over and find the cutest picture of her pup, Maccabee!

Four days before Christmas, a lovely #TWIPS (@modernlywed) gave to me…

As I mentioned yesterday, I’ve been part of a #TWIPS Holiday Card Exchange organized by the fabulous Jessica of Two Wedding Belles.

Today’s lovely little card came from Kate of ModernlyWed. If you haven’t been on her blog recently, you must check it out. It’s on my Google Reader for daily inspiration for the modern bride. (Ok, so maybe I’m not a bride, but I still love it!)

By the way, check out her DIY on the inside liner of her envelopes! Love it.

If you missed yesterday’s super cute card from LauraLavender – you know what to do! […]
