Martha Stewart Weddings sneak peek

martha stewart weddings cover

The Spring 2013 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings is about to debut (if you can’t wait until Monday, you can download it on your iPad) and there’s plenty of great new ideas, weddings, and color palettes (it’s the annual color issue afterall).  Biz and Micah’s wedding combines all three. The modern nuptials up in Saratoga Springs (where I went to college!), fused bold stationery (by Cheree Berry), vibrant flowers, and plenty of personality—and horse racing flair. One special touch? The escort cards were created to look like prize ribbons. It’s clear that everyone who attended this celebration was a true winner, with fun like that!

If you’d like to check out the issue on your iPad, MSW is giving away the digital Spring issue for FREE!  Just head over here and use code G9xC7x.  The offers good for a month, so download it while you can!

What does it mean? Koseli and Keenan

What does it mean?” is a continuing series where we ask a blogger how they brought meaning into their wedding. Today we are honored to hear from Koseli Cummings and her husband, Keenan.  Koseli is the blogger of Original Archiving and is a contributor to Design Mom. Her husband, Keenan, is a graphic designer. They are based out of Brooklyn, NY.

We were just children, really. In our early 20s and madly in love. It’s six years later and I still remember how peaceful and excited I felt that day, as I got ready and drove downtown with my parents. I was chatty and bubbly—not really the picture of a flustered bridezilla. But that peace and cozy feeling wasn’t something new with Keenan. He’d felt like home since our first conversation. Marrying Keenan will always be the best decision I’ve ever made.

To make our big day extra meaningful, we surrounded ourselves with “our people”. Family, relatives, and long-time friends that believed in us and loved us. They were all there, tearing up and laughing at all the lame jokes at our wedding luncheon. Two of my sister-in-laws sang a beautiful duet, I danced with my Dad, and then he handed me over to Keenan. It was so sweet.
A week after our honeymoon, we had a backyard reception at my in-law’s beautiful home in Southern California. Though my dress barely fit from all the cruise food, we were relaxed and happy to spend all night talking about the future and eating good food. The next morning, we moved to New York City to start our next grand adventure.
As far as the extras, my husband designed our monogram for our wedding invitation and I hand-sewed each one. Honestly, it was a terrible idea. I’m a horrible crafter and we later agreed that we had no idea what we were thinking when we made that plan. Also, there was a spelling mistake in half of our invitations! So embarrassing. But they were merry mishaps and even at the time, hardly seemed to matter. All we wanted was to be together.
Thanks so much for having me!
