We Bought A Home!

The big blog reveal!

We spent February moving into our new home, so that’s why I’ve been on semi-hiatus & that’s why these vlogs are so late!


Wedding Prep & SNES

Weddings & video games are the theme for the year, no?  We also do some foodie things.  (Remember this?)  So, an average weekend.

Weekend vlogs are back on schedule!  I didn’t know if I was going to post this today, because it’s actually a very special day.  We got engaged one year ago today!  Instead of rushing a post for that, I’ll talk more about the engagement so far soon!


My Bridal Shower in Photos

Since I really couldn’t vlog my perfect bridal shower, I wanted to share a few favorite photos I gathered from people!


Can you tell I love donuts?  My mom surprised me with donuts as a dessert and my bestie & bridesmaid Julia took these hilarious photos.


My brother’s girlfriend Courtney borrowed this chalkboard from work and served as the day’s event planner with my mom– they did such an amazing job!  Speaking of amazing, look at this guy with that bouquet!


My MOH Amanda granted my wish of a flower crown!  My dress, which you can see in this photo with my beloved Nonna, is from Free People.


My beautiful bridesmaids!  I have my lifelong friend Chelsea, bestie Julia, future-sister-in-law Caitlin, and cousins Amanda, Christina, and Daniella by my side.


My immediate family, and the girl cousins (the “pretty babies,” as much uncle calls us)!


A few favorite from instagram!  Clockwise: my hometown friends, soon-to-be sister, future husband, and moms!


With Julia, who I’ll be a bridesmaid for a year from my shower; with Amanda, who I’ll be MOH for next month; and with Tara, whose wedding was the first Matt & I went to together!


And one last shot of the flowers!  Big thanks to my aunt for taking so many of these photos.  Fun fact: I was in my aunt’s wedding maybe 20 years ago?  Her daughters are my junior bridesmaids!

143 days to go til we’re #lyontheknot!

Engagement Photos

Today, for Wedding Wednesday, I wanted to share just handful of our engagement photos.  These were taken by G. Riggieri Photography in Scituate, MA.  We had so much fun taking these photos with Gabby and couldn’t be happier with how they came out!  I love her aesthetic and feel like it perfectly matches my own.  I can’t wait to take pictures on our wedding day!
