A Highland Fairy Tale: We Begin with a Teaser Video!

Hello hive! Happy June! It feels like I’ve been gone forever, but it’s only been a little over a month since my last honeymoon post. I had to wait a bit longer for my professional photos (which was really difficult), but I’m happy to report they were worth the wait because they are insanely amazing! And they make me miss our wedding day tenfold.

Luckily I get to relive it in epic detail with all of you and I’m totally pumped about that. So let’s get these recaps started, shall we?

For those of you who aren’t as familiar with my story as others, here are a few highlights of my time as a blogger on Weddingbee:

I joined the hive declaring it was my dream come true (and it was). My other half Mr. Sword (who proposed to me at the top of the John Hancock building) is from Scotland but didn’t have a family tartan to wear at our wedding, so we decided to design and create our own. Even though it turned out better than we could ever imagine, it only came about after some disagreeing between me and Mr. Sword and many opinions from the hive.


I love Mr. Sword’s eyes in this photo—he’s so good in front of the camera! /Engagement photo by Jennifer Jackson

Despite my determination to make my wedding-planning year all about me and my boobs, exciting things happened to other people and both my little sister AND Mr. Sword’s wee sis got engaged as well!

In the beginning, I encouraged us all to laugh at ourselves and figure out what type of bride we were most like, I openly showed my support for gay marriage, I begged you all for help in finding a suitable wedding reading, and I made up some new WR lingo. Speaking of which, how can I get “shrendoring” into Urban Dictionary?? 🙂

As my planning year came to a close I acted like a drama queen when my dress didn’t fit the first time, but it all worked out in the end thanks to a five-pound weight loss and a new bra. In my last week as a single lady I admitted my true feelings about plaid/tartan and wrote about how amazing it was to be getting married to the man of my dreams!

And now for a beautiful overview and teaser of our special day:

And with that, it’s time to begin the Sword recaps!! Woohoo! I can’t promise I’ll be brief, but I can promise I’ll be open and honest, I’ll be entertaining, and at some points embarrassing, and I won’t skip a single major moment!

    Omg, Mrs. Sword. That was the most perfect ceremony kiss I have ever seen!! That was even better than those romantic ones you see in movies. It totally made me tear up – you two are adorable. Congrats and I can’t wait to read your recaps!

    @krislynn_sd: Thank you so much, what a nice compliment! Our photographer told us to go nice and slow so she could get a good shot of it. It was a nice kiss. 🙂
