Wedding 101: My Final Thoughts


I find it funny when newlyweds say things like, “I LOVE being married!” It’s like marriage is some state of being rather than merely a legal recognition of a present fact, as if the relationship underwent some substantial change just because of the “I dos.” I can’t speak for Shaun, but I honestly feel no different than […]

Hello, World.


We got married. [Copyright 2012 Joyeuse Photography] We had great food: Danced a lot: Got crazy in a photo booth: And had good times with best friends: Now please excuse us as we recover from a six-day leftover-wedding-cake-for-dinner binge [sorry, jeans], finish moving into our new Philadelphia apartment, and take off for a five-week post-bar/honeymoon/last […]

Listen Well, Will You Marry Me?


Some of life’s little moments kind of suck. Like moments when you’re greeted by this: The epic Battle of Living Room between Sir Grady and The Honorable Pillow I Think I Accidentally Acquired From A Former Roommate At Some Point occurred between 8:30 and 9:30AM this morning [history will never know]. Although there’s only been […]

Wedding 101: The Dress [Or, this weekend’s “FINALLY” #2]


Well, here it is: That’s Maid of Honor/Awesome Photographer Kelly, by the way. She said she felt it was her MOH duty to carry the dress box back to the car. I have to say, I went to D.C. yesterday expecting to just pick something. I chose ten dresses to try during my appointment, and figured that […]

Return to C’Ville: Blind Pilot & Cotton Jones


Last week in my Valentine’s Day post, I said I’d let you know if I didn’t cry if Blind Pilot played “Three Rounds and a Sound” on Friday night [the 17th] at their show at the Jefferson. Believe me, I tried not to.* But then Israel Nebeker unplugged his guitar and he and the other five […]

GUEST POST: Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks at the Jefferson [9/30/11]


Courtney’s note: Although I was excited to go to the show last night [I mean, who doesn’t enjoy Pavement?] I felt ill-equipped to write this review because of my lack of familiarity with Malkmus’ new record. Thankfully, Shaun agreed to write a guest post today and let you know all about the concert! Enjoy… Stephen Malkmus & […]

Wavves at the Jefferson [9/26/2011]


Sandwiched in between Richmond’s oddly-named “Black Girls” and the loudest band I have ever seen live, “F*cked Up,” Wavves played a straightforward, hour-long surf rock set in a [to my surprise] nearly empty theater. What once was a  two-man group with California native Nathan Williams and formr drummer Ryan Ulsh has grown into a four-piece […]

Wedding 101: Choosing a Photographer


Since my last post was completely devoid of pictures [and substance], I’ll start off with a photo of the GIANT CREATURE that has taken up shop on our porch, and the obligatory oh-hey-its-a-cute-puppy-photo: Choosing A Photographer: Every time we choose a wedding vendor, I always have a moment of panic [buyer’s remorse?]. What if we […]

Wedding 101: Why the Florist is Your Best Friend


Before we met Amy, we had three colors, a caterer, a cake, a DJ, no clothes for our bridal party, and an empty theater. After we met Amy, things started coming together. We saw what colors went where. I was able to visualize the space with our things in it. We could finally begin to see […]
