Response Cards

Before I want to attack the wedding details, I want to share some of the AWESOME response cards we received. On our RSVP’s, we had a quiz and a space for our invited guests to draw pictures.

At the rehearsal dinner, Doug and I gave a presentation to share some of the answers from the quiz and some of the amazing art we received. As I will one day share the presentation, I will  not show you all the answers to the quiz, but I will share some of the drawings:


Thank you to everyone who took time to draw/color/glitter! We LOVED them.

Love and Hugs, Lizzie

A wedding toast! (from Courts)

This toast was given at Doug and I’s rehearsal dinner from Courtney:

When I very first met Elizabeth Peyroux,
I wasn't quite sure just what to do.
She was dressed as a kissing booth with big ugly chomps,
Outside of the J-School at a Halloween tailgate romp. 

But then we climbed up a tree and friends we would be,
On ski trips and farm trips and that infamous time in Tennessee.
Pinkness, I double, yeah-yeah, and that whole NIPPLES!?! business,
Lizzie and I share many fun memories that don't make much sense.

Nights at the Bulldog, football games at LSU,
She even deemed herself little sis to my only one true.
Weddings, parades, NORC, and New Year's Eve parties,
She has most recently become "aunt" to my little boy Riley.

Then at Coconut Beach playing volleyball in the sand,
Lizzie met a boy named Doug, who finally asked for her hand.
The planning and preparations are now all over and done,
And they will walk down the aisle on Saturday for two to become one.

So sit back, relax, and know that your big day is almost here,
When we will laugh, cry, dance, and of course cheer.
I wish you all of the best in your new life together,
Finding joy in each other, now and forever.

This toast was one of many for the evening! It is so funny and true. I AM SO LUCKY.

Thank you Courts! LOVE YOU!

Love and Hugs, Lizzie

Getting back into the Blog…and a favor from you!

I have been asked by many people when and if I would start the blog back up. The answer is YES I would blog again, but I was not sure of when!Mainly, because I have no idea where to start with the awesomeness of the wedding. Also because we were moving things all around and were kinda busy. We are finally almost settled in The Shack. Yay!

So, to update you…it will start back up now. :)

To answer some of your other questions.
Yes, I knew Doug had “April Fools” on the bottom of his shoes :)

No, I do not have the professional wedding photos back yet, but they should be here in the next month.

No, I do not have the video back yet, but you can watch this one over and over: http://vimeo.com/41727113 (This was played at the end of the reception at 10:30 pm! ) LOVE THIS!

Yes, we will have a big viewing party to entertain you one last time with liquor, candy and a video. (All items left from the wedding.)

No, I am not sure where the viewing party will be…I have had 3 people offer to have it at their houses!!! Man, people love us.

Now to ask a favor of you! I have not asked any of the blog readers for a a favor before so you know it must be important. :) I want to put together a story book for Doug and I to keep forever. If you were able to come to the wedding, can you please write me a story about our wedding day? Can you please tell me what you saw, felt, expected, experienced, noticed, any funny stories and anything else you want to share? I would LOVE to have them all for June 1 so I can start compiling the story book. I MIGHT share some of them on the blog, but I won’t if you ask me not to.

So here is your assignment if you are willing to accept it:
E-mail me your story from our wedding by June 1.

And I will continue to update you with my fun, silly, awesome life with my wonderful husband, Doug!

Love and Hugs,
