wedding // vacation starts now.

there is no way after a year of dreaming up our wedding week away in paradise, that it is already here ..or maybe it really is.

hold on while I pinch myself. 


after an essential stop for iced coffee, [J] + I are driving to chicago. we will be joining [J]’s parents for wine + pedicures this evening.

it’s up in the air if we’ll actually sleep tonight. let’s be truly honest, I’m entirely too excited. but also, we must be at o’hare well before the sun comes up on tuesday morning.


hold on while I pinch myself, again.

the next time you hear from me, I will be a mrs. 

I cannot promise anything, but if you follow along on instagram + facebook there may be a peek. #LLinaBCgetshitched

[our wedding day is saturday, october 11th].

I have asked some of my favorite bloggers to share their wedding tips, tricks, & snapshots with all of you while I’m away.

so stay tuned each day this week.



life // in 6 days.

when I miss national coffee day, you know I’m preoccupied.

I promise in a short amount of time, my blog will go back to “normal”. by normal, I mean regular posts and not all about my wedding.

lately, if I’m not in the office on the clock, I’m in wedding mode. constantly. but I’m not being too hard on my distracted self. this precious time is flying by. and regardless of the never-ending lists + stress, I’m loving it.

we started packing our suitcase[s] on sunday. fingers crossed the airline’s scale is feeling forgiving. our clothes ..not a problem. our wedding “stuff” ..heavier problem.

one week from right now, we will be traveling to or be at our resort in punta cana.

life // in 6 days c/o

excuse me while I squeal in excitement. for the next 6 days.

happy tuesday.

wedding // luggage tags.

it has been almost one year since we sent out our wedding invitations. and nearly six months since many of our guests booked their travel. we wanted to send a small pre token of appreciation and a “get excited” package to those who’d be joining us in the dominican republic. so [J] + I put our heads together.

we decided on luggage tags. accompanied by a thank you card + travel tips.

I cannot rave enough about my husband-to-be. he custom designed every single bit of our wedding. everything you see, he designed. and there’s so much more were these came from. [cannot wait to share it all soon].
