Lizz Is A Married Person

Ahoy, my Jellies! The last time I blogged, I was a single lady. Not anymore...

Lizz Aubrey is married, yall !
[said in a high pitched Chris Kattan-like voice]


I'm sure some of my readers want to hear wedding details. Some may not, so I'll keep the gushing short and sweet!

Fiance Hubby Casey and I got hitched in my hometown - Austin, Texas - on Saturday, August 27th 2011 amongst 175 of our nearest and dearest friends and family members. We had our ceremony and reception in the most beautiful space, an historic mansion built in the 1930s. Simply elegant.

Theme? Vintage, shabby chic. Colors? Orange and gray.
9 Bridesmaids + 9 Groomsmen + 2 Ushers + 2 House Party gals + 2 ring bearers = big wedding party!

Something old: my mother & aunt used their own wedding gown to make ring bearer pillows
Something new: my wedding dress, art deco style lace & silk, made by designer Sophia Tolli
Something borrowed: my bridesmaid Joni let me borrow her diamond stud earrings to wear in my second ear piercing
Something blue: whaddaya' know... the shoe whore had blue shoes! Tiffany blue, patent leather peeptoe pumps (found them while in Tokyo but I bought them domestically).

Our photographer Emily Alexander, who also took our engagement photos, was so amazing in capturing all the special little details of the day. Thank you, Emily!

I infused my favorite flower - hydrangeas - into all of the bouquets.
Obsessed with my bridal bouquet!  


Being poked and prodded by my friends Jennifer (who did my hair) and Andrea (who did my makeup). Thank you for making me feel beautiful, ladies!

Look how handsome my groom looked.

 Surprise! For our first dance, we did a ribbon dance to a Justin Bieber song.

 2 of my beautiful bridesmaids, who wore gray.
I bought my veil from Etsy.com and switched to a feather hairpiece for the reception.

Guest favor: personalized drink koozies that said
"Even a 9.0 can't shake this love"
(earthquake joke... we got married almost 6 months after we survived the earthquake in Japan)


Our beautiful vintage getaway car - a 1959 Jaguar

What can I say... it was a perfect evening. Friends, family and a pretty white dress.
