We’re back from San Diego and getting settled into life in our new digs! Much more on this later, but because Joey’s job and my job are in slightly different locations, we have moved to an adorable little loft apartment in Grinnell, Iowa, a small town that if a half way point between where Joe works and I work.

As part of our new living situation, I will be working from a home office two days a week (Monday and Friday) and driving into Des Moines the other three days. I’m so thankful that I will be able to continue doing what I love but a little nervous for the new transition. Something to get used to, for sure!

Over the course of last week, more photos began to pop up on Facebook and my mom had some on her camera, too. So I figured today would be a great time to do a non-official wedding recap, with photos I could piece together from a few different sources. Enjoy!

{a welcome sign in chalk for our guests}
{natural, food-inspired centerpieces with apples and artichokes}
{our take-home gifts: recipe cards with some of the recipes served at the wedding, including the pies}
{photo guest book in place of the standard pen and paper variety}
{the fabric flags were made with scraps of fabric from my grandma}
{my friend and mentor, the fabulous Nancy Wall Hopkins}
{our friends Laura and Mike – wish we lived closer to them!}
{a group of Joey’s friends from college}
{my beautiful matron of honor, Emily, and her hubby, Brian}
{right after being announced husband and wife!}
{chatting with work friends and drinking mimosas before the reception}
{three of our four beautiful little ribbon dancers}
{croquet was played as part of the outdoor portion of the reception}
{my favorite part of the reception: the pie table!}
{posing with Nutmeg at the reception}
{instead of bird see, guests waved mini ribbon wands as we left via pedicab}
{leaving the reception full of smiles}
{a kiss for the crowd!}
{riding off into the sunset….err to Joey’s pickup}
I hope you enjoyed this little glimpse into our big day. As soon as I get the official photos, I’ll be doing a full-blown recap. And I’ll be back to posting recipes in just a bit! As soon as I figure out where everything in my new kitchen is…
