My Wedding Bliss

Gawd, I never thought I would be one of those women who stresses over their nuptials but afterwards says “it was all worth it,” but I have just finished going through all the photos and making my video and I have to admit… all the worrying WAS worth it!

On my wedding day I was nervous.  I had spent two months planning this and everything was set up, but where was my groom?  Where were the guests?  I had a hard time reaching my fiance all day, and the time for the ceremony to start rolls through and crippling lag is keeping the attendees from teleporting in.

But 45 minutes later, and we were done.  It goes by so fast!  A week later and all the anxiety I had is a distant memory and what I am left with is the memories of a BEAUTIFUL wedding.

Here’s a closer look at some of my favorite pics:

My dress was from Evie’s Closet.  What I originally had in mind for my wedding was a high waisted gown, something simple and antique.  Evie’s Closet had a nice selection and I just casually picked up the demo for this dress.  What I did not expect was for my jaw to drop to the ground the second I put it on.  Whimsical ball gown was my only choice after that, heeheehee.

My bride style isn’t sexy or bombshell.  Simple, subtle, and understated beauty is what I have always been.  For my February wedding, I picked Curio’s winter skins.  They are adorable and appropriate for an outdoor wedding.  Everything else plays into the uncomplicated elegance from my simple Caroline’s pearl necklace, to the minimally coiffed Fri.day’s hair.  What I did play up was my eyes, with Cake’s flutter lashes.

I must admit, I really accomplished something special with Airwin and I’m not just talking about my love for him, 😉  I was very picky about the tux.  I wanted a prim coat AND collar AND white prim tie.  It wasn’t easy, but then I found this masterpiece from Rabbit Kiss.  For well under 1000L you get interchangeable ties and a wonderfully crafted outfit.  Airwin’s wearing the only skin he owns from Belleza, but I did get him to dress up his hair; something we picked up at KMadd.

All in all, I couldn’t be happier about how things went and now I have the rest of my second life to enjoy what Airwin and I have, 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving!

Let the seasonal tradition of overeating begin!  It’s actually pretty warm here, with this turkey day being the coldest this week, and I am waiting for the chance to bundle up and feel the cold chap my cheeks.  But like most things, Second Life can provide us with the platform to live our fantasies.  This time I took a look at the Winterfest showcase and I found Angel Woods.

 

This little gem is nestled amongst the bustle of the mainland and provides a very intimate scenery.  Plenty of nooks and crannies for peaceful reflection or for couples.  With the snow gently falling, I thought it was the perfect time to experience some new, wonderful designs by SL’s hottest designers.

What I use to keep warm:

:GP: Petal Frex [Light] Winter-Sniffles 1 (the new skins from Curio are so cute and are perfect for exploring the outdoors.  Just the right amount of red nose and cheeks means fun in the snow.  If you want to theme it up this season, winter skins should be on your Christmas list)

fri. – Cassie – Passionate Red

Zaara : Anaya cluster earrings *onyx*

*COCO*_CheckSwingCoat_Blue (I love plaid, and this new coat from Coco is just so natural looking.  It drapes beautifully and flatters the figure.  I can’t imagine leaving the house this winter without it)

*PERSONA* Dita knit blouse – white  (for the plaid coat, I thought a knit would be best for underneath.  Just so happens that I stumbled upon this sweater that I have had for just about forever.  Always important to coordinate your textures and prints.  Knits and plaids have had a centuries old love affair with each other that can’t go wrong)

*COCO*_SlimJeansBelt_Brown (it’s the little details that really tell the world that you are smart about your appearance.  In other words?  Wear belts!)
