• Our Second Year | The Volpes

    Our second wedding anniversary was last week and I am still wondering where the time went. I was so invested in my wedding for 11 months and for it to go by in the blink of an eye was crazy, but now to realize all of it ended TWO years ago?! It may not seem like a lot of time, and in the scheme of things it really isn’t, but it is really crazy looking back on the last 2 years an realizing everything that has happened. Last year I shared a letter to Dave and a post of notes of our first year. This year, I am just going…

    {Volpes Tie The Knot} Thank You For Following Along

    I can’t believe I have finished the personal recaps of our wedding day. It has been so much fun reliving our special day over the last year, and I am happy to know I will always have these Wedding Wednesday posts to come back to. While I have several weeks lined up full of advice posts, like why we did a first look, it’s weird to know that I have totally finished sharing details from our own wedding. I hope you have enjoyed the recaps, and I will finish off with some photos that weren’t included in other posts. Enjoy! If you would like to catch up on Wedding Wednesday…

  • Volpes Tie The Knot: The Bloopers

      Every wedding will have a mishap, whether it’s a slight one or a major one, it is bound to happen. This is something I had to realize early on, but I am so glad I did because we had some big ones. Looking back, some of these things really make me laugh, and having them as apart of our memories is actually quite nice. Dave and I aren’t a very traditional couple, and as I’ve mentioned we wanted a fun wedding, some of these bloopers sure did help with that. Some people could probably say that our entire┬áreception was a blooper, which could be the case if you’re afraid…

  • Volpes Tie The Knot: The Send-Off

    I knew right away that I wanted to have a sparkler send-off for our wedding. After working so many weddings and seeing how they looked in the photos, and also getting engaged on the 4th of July, it just seemed to fit. But then as most of you know, things started to change with the weather. With rain in the forecast, I still had the sparklers, the sparkler exit sign and hope that it would still happen. Then to be honest, I totally forgot about it while we were knee deep in a muddy dance floor signing out hearts out. When they DJ announced the last song, we all wanted…

    Volpes Tie The Knot: Our Wedding Video

    I debated sharing this video for Wedding Wednesday, and I’m not even sure why. While I don’t totally love this video (it is literally nothing like the examples we were shown), I absolutely loved that we have these moments caught in real time, in live action. Photos are amazing, but being able to actually watch a video and see the moments before and after really is special. We originally didn’t have room in our budget for a videographer, but we knew we needed to find a way to have one. Honestly, I wish we would have spent more on a different one that could have captured our day in a…

  • {Volpes Tie The Knot} Stationary Pieces

    Our love story started at work, not literally in the office, but we first met at work. I have talked about this countless times here on the blog, but I don’t know if I mentioned what exactly our company does. We work for a personality company, there are several various personality assessments that you can take to determine your personality in various aspects of life. What is the point of me explaining this? Well the amount of people that told me how much our personality shined through every detail of our wedding. That was our goal, and it makes me so happy to hear that we succeeded. Before this company,…
