{A Very Twitter} Real Wedding 1.21.12

8 Feb

A & E’s wedding was infused with personality and their love story. A big part of that story is Twitter and the blogosphere.  I had the opportunity to coordinate their wedding on the day of. The ceremony was held at Church of the Epiphany in Plymouth with a reception at the ultra-cool bowling alley/reception hall of Elsie’s in Northeast Minneapolis.

Bridesmaids wore their choice of black dresses. The bride wore a stunning birdcage veil with a turquoise flower accent in her side-swept hair and the groom wore a snazzy bow-tie and equally snazzy beard (he’s the founder of the Minnesota Beard-Off).

A Twitter thread was woven throughout their festivities – guests participated on their Tweet Wall via TweetWally during the reception. Haven’t heard of a Tweet Wall? Here’s what they did: chose a specific tag for their wedding (i.e. #OurWedding12.24.12) which guests include in their tweets about the wedding and are then grouped together and projected onto a wall, making a Tweet Wall.

Thanks to A & E and congrats on your marriage!

2012 Word of the Year: Persevere

24 Jan

Inspired by Ali Edwards, I have chosen my word of 2012: PERSEVERE.

Persevere: to persist in anything undertaken.

For some reason, this word suits me. It means that when things are challenging, you keep going. When you don’t know where your next step is, trust God and take a step forward.

Persevere. Keep going. Don’t give up. Don’t ever give up.

Do you have a word of the year? I’d love to hear what you’ve chosen to inspire you this calendar year.

These are some bold color choices, and let’s just say I’m in love! What do you think – should bold, bright colors be reserved for the summer months? Or would you add a bold pop of color to your winter wedding?
