Real Wedding: Chris and Layla

It’s a little known fact that I went to graduate school to study English. I had originally thought I wanted to get my doctorate and teach literature. Then I realized how terrible the job market is for Ph.D.’s in English. And the plan started to unravel. Nevertheless, I have an obsession with words, which means my favorite game is Scrabble (though oddly, not many people like to play it with me. Hmmm?).

So you can imagine my absolute delight when Jeff Wallace sent over this wedding which incorporated a little shout out to Scrabble, which Chris and Layla played on their first date. How cute is that? Such personality!

    Thanks for all the comments and to Jeff the amazing photographer- I am the bride, and Jeff made our day amazing!

    I got my dress on sale at Davids bridal and then reshaped the bust… as for the hair piece I found it on etsy! Etsy is almost as cool as Jeff.

    and no the guy with the long hair is not in that band 🙂
