the wedding week…


(photo from our engagement photos… Love Story) 

Well…. This is the week! I've planned and planned and it's finally all about to happen. Our out-of-town guests start arriving in just a few days. We have lots of parties and events planned surrounding the big day. This morning I packed up all the gifts for the rehearsal dinner… It's feeling really really real. I feel peaceful and happy right now. I just want to enjoy this entire week. We've been looking forward to it for so long. We will get to see some friends who we haven't seen in a long time. I'll get to wear the prettiest dress and marry my very best friend. Every little detail that I've spent all these months planning out is actually going to happen…. I'm so excited. Just going to soak it in. 

A quick note about what to expect on the blog… 

Several people have asked if I'll be taking a blog break for the wedding & honeymoon. Starting this Tuesday I will have a guest blog every single day until the end of the month. This will take the "pressure" off of me and keep the blog super full of pretty things, DIY projects and special treats from guest bloggers that I admire. That said, I will absolutely still be blogging. I plan to pop in at random and post wedding and honeymoon photos… not a full recap (quite yet), but enough little peeks to keep you smiling! Does that sounds good? I'm really excited. Xo, elsie

    – From the Love Quotes Team

  • Soaking it all in is an absolute must!! Someone told me before I got married that I had to keep stepping back and looking on my wedding day to make sure I was taking it all in and feeling how loved we were, and you know what? I did just that, and I can tell you, it’s pretty overwhelming to know that all the people at there for you and your love and that they love you. It’s them that make the day special. And another word of advice – if it’s not done on the day, it’s not going to get done, so don’t let last minute hiccups spoil your day because you will love it regardless. I hope you and Jeremy have an amazing day and everything turns out as beautiful as you!! Much love, Jo xxx

  • Congratulations to you & Mr. Larson, Elsie! Wishing you the happiest, and most magical wedding ever. I’m sure it will be amazing. Enjoy your time off with each other as you bask in honeymoon bliss! XO

  • you two will make the most amazing old married couple ever. I’m so happy for you <3

  • congratualtions on your wedding! you guys seem to have the perfect relationship

    best wishes to you both!

  • Congratulations to you both!! relax and have an amazing time 🙂

  • I’m so happy for you! Have a great week and enjoy every second of it 🙂 I’m really looking forward to the wedding and honeymoon peeks, I’m sure everything will be just perfect-

    Congratulations to you two and have a wonderful wedding!

  • May you be blessed this week. Weddings are a lot of work, but I hope you are now able to sit back and enjoy the moments.

  • Dear Elsie, God bless you and Jeremy always, you guys make me believe in love <3<3<3

  • Congratulations to you both, hope you have an amazing time when the big day arrives and forever after!!

  • I can’t believe it’s here already! Congrats and have a blast!

  • What?! I can’t believe its this week!

    I hope you get all projects done in the next couple days so the last few days are relaxing and spent with family. The night before your wedding let go of all the details and planning because you can’t control anything from that point. The morning of your wedding, remember to thank God for the day.

    I wish you a stress-free, smooth, genuine, happy, love-filled wedding day.

  • Congrats to you Elsie! You guys make a beautiful couple. Much happiness to you!

  • Congratulations Elsie!
    I hope you have a wonderful day, which is sure to be filled with beautiful vintage dresses and your pretty designed details…
    You are such an inspiring lady and you deserve every happiness 🙂


  • I’m so very happy for you, and Mr. L, of course! I’ve been married to my best friend for 10 years and it is better every day….I wish that for both of you, too. 🙂

  • Congratulations Elsie – I’ve been reading your blog since Christmas 2009 and love it. I got engaged last month after being with my boyfriend for 5years – we’re hoping to get married next year 🙂
    Much love and smiles to you both

  • Ahhh!! So, so happy for you! I know everyone tells you this, but it goes so, soo fast. Try and savor every single special moment. One of my greatest memories was the morning after our wedding when me and my new husband first woke up next to each other, we looked into each others eyes, smiled and said ‘last night was the greatest night ever.’ And that is the most important part of your big day-that you and Jeremy have the greatest day/night ever. xoxo

  • Congrats to the both of you, I’m sure it will be beautiful.

    One little tip I tell all my bride friends, appoint a bridesmaid or someone you will be with all day, to remind you throughout the day to pause and take it all in. It just goes so amazingly fast and its wonderful to have those moments tucked away in your memory.

  • Hugs and blessings and love and prayers and best wishes and butterflies and rainbows and sunshine and feathers and magic and joy. Lots and lots of joy. All of this is what I wish for you!

  • so happy for you elsie, i hope everything is magical and i hope you have a beautiful wedding. you will be the most gorgeous bride!

  • Congrats!!!! I hope that you have a magical, beautiful, love-filled week with your family and closest friends. So happy to be a small part of your special day. Best wishes!
