I don’t know about you but since I’m on the computer all day long my handwriting has absolutely gone in the toilet. Even with my full concentration, notes come off looking like doctor’s prescriptions (Was that Martin or Marlena I’m supposed to call back?). Fortunately, Jen from Pretty Pen Jen hasn’t fallen prey to the bad handwriting epidemic; rather she’s here to save engaged couples from it.

Kris and Kristen’s wedding is another one of those weddings that is jam-packed with details; there’s the cupcake bar, the hilarious napkins, the beer kozy favors, the out-of-this-world centerpieces…

1. Dutch Door Press has a line of prints that feature Birds and Blooms from the 50 states that would be perfect for couples who have special connections to a variety of states. Plus, pinning down the different…
This inaugural wedding is a doozy. It’s about as glam as they come, every photo reveals a new, steal-worthy detail and the bride and groom, well, let’s just say they don’t come cooler than Chris and CC. Seriously.
