Post Wedding Fog


Don’t tell Napkin, but I’ve spent the past few mornings laying in bed, eating leftover cheese cubes from our wedding caterer and watching the entire first season of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.”

(I just needed to know, okay? I just needed to know.)

Anyway, I’m affectionately referring to this time as post-wedding-fog. Anyone know what I’m talking about? I feel like the last six months of my life have been nothing but this electric stress turned joy about the wedding and now that it’s over I have no idea what to do with myself.
I mean, I know what I SHOULD be doing with myself (which is jumping up and down about the fact that I go to Japan in two weeks) but I’m having a hard time transitioning. I’ve started organizing “thank you” notes but every time I sit down to start them, I catch myself staring off into space dreaming about sweet Napkin’s face as I walked down the aisle and wishing that I could do it again.

Every time I do the dishes (or any chore, really) I lose track of time and I end up with pruny hands in the mixing bowl that is still covered in dinner remnants because I’m replaying the steps of our first dance.

I’ve tried to start writing wedding recaps but I can’t find the words… I don’t know, you guys. I’m just sort of in a wistful daze. So, I guess instead of starting a useful post or going on about my feelings, I’m going to give you a couple sneak peeks into the wedding. Maybe you can get all foggy with me? Then I won’t feel like such a weirdo?

We haven’t gotten our official pictures back– but like any good photographer who doesn’t want an angry mob chasing them, our great friend Neely sent us a couple of unedited hints.

Here you are:

My first picture as a Mrs!

One of the sweetest moments of the wedding: My mom’s reading of Corinthians.

(I messed with this in Instagram, excuse my being a hipster.) And here we are! Mr and Mrs. Napkin!

Here are a few of my favorite before-the-wedding shots!

Oh, you know. Just keeping ourselves hydrated… I can’t remember who took this one. Ahem.

And my sweet, taller sissy putting my veil on…


Wait. Here’s one more:

This is basically what we did ALL night long.


I promise to write a proper, more organized post soon… but for now:

Here’s to fogginess.

  1. You obviously had an awesome wedding if you’re so happy to re-live it, so I say stay foggy for a little bit longer: you totally have every right! And I must say, your pictures are beautiful and the ones you chose definitely convey that foggy blissful feeling. 😀

  2. Oh i’m definitely in a bit of a post wedding haze/funk. It’s hard to get motivated to do anything else…I just keep thinking back! People are calling me crazy because I want to do it all over again!

    • You are not crazy! My hubby (who was afraid for his life towards the end of the wedding planning) has even, in a weak moment, said he wishes we could do it again.
      Maybe we can start a trend of one-month-vow-renewals?
      And heeeeeyyyy, girlllll.
