So Long, Farewell

I buzzed in 14 months ago with the Sound of Music, so I found it only appropriate to buzz on out with the Sound of Music. :)

Hive, it’s been fun but my time here has come to an end. When I first started blogging as a bee, I had no idea how this little world would end up shaping certain aspects of our wedding. Like when I didn’t know what to do about my cork board collage (or pretty much all my other projects). It looked terrible the way I originally had it, but you all gave me some fantastic tips and tricks and suddenly it morphed into a great project. Or when my first hair trial turned out to be a hot mess, you helped me out and guided me to a better option. How about the time I accidentally got locked out of my house when I was suppose to be going to pick up my dress? You offered up some of your own “uh oh” moments that were equally as hilarious.

Another one was when I thought our koozies would be trashy and you all supported my slightly redneck, yet totally awesome, decision to have them anyway.


All of your comments and helpful suggestions truly meant so much to me. I lit up every time I received a notification that I had a new comment and I took to heart all of your advice, love and sometimes constructive criticism.

Our wedding may not have been ultra trendy or fantasically Style Me Pretty-ish (is that a word?). I’m just a normal little lady who encountered the same issues that probably a lot of you are encountering. I don’t know why I was chosen as a bee—someone must have liked something I said. But, I’m glad I was given the opportunity and I hope you enjoyed our story as much as I enjoyed telling it.

Although our wedding day was one of the best days of our lives, it is now a beautiful memory and we are happy to be back to “normal” life.


My only word of advice is to heed the words of one of my favorite dudes, Ferris Bueller. “Life moves pretty fast, if you don’t stop to look around once in awhile. you could miss it.”

You have heard that said time and again, but it is true, so there’s just one more reminder. The engagement, wedding and honeymoon—it will be over before you know it. Drink it in and enjoy every little moment.


Much Love,

Mrs. Doe

I hold on to the feeling

We have a party fowl-er

We toss to call me maybe

We dance like nobody is watching

We foxtrot to Jack Johnson

We admire the ruffled cake

Toasting time with a few good laughs

Dinner with a light drizzle

A Sweet Entry

A funny photo and bridal party pictures

The rain irritates me and we take photos

Over ten years go by and we get married

The birds and the weather join us

We promise to laugh

We journey down the aisle

The ceremony begins

The bridesmaids share a view out the window

The boys shake their nerves and take photos

The girls take photos

I show you my magical flowers

I talk about my whipped cream dress

The girls have fun getting glam

We get our hair done and grub down on some food delivered by dad

    I’ll miss your updates Kel! Now that you’re done, I won’t be able to convince my hubs that the only reason I’m still on Weddingbee all the time is to see if you’ve still posted :)
