I’m back… Almost!

So I have officially become one of “those brides.” You know, the ones that promise they will blog or post pictures “the day after.” Then reality hits, you go on your honeymoon, and after that you find out you want to be generic and enjoy time with your new hubs.

This post is just to let you know I’m alive {not gonna lie, flattered by the new Love and Sapphire followers! Hi Guys!}

I will be back up to 3 posts a week come Monday and slowly work my way back up to five. Until then, here is a tease of things you have to look forward to {or at least I hope so!} ūüôā Wedding pictures won’t be ready for a few weeks, but we are moving at the end of July so I have a lot of decorating ideas (Either fails or accomplishments, we will soon see) to share here in the mean time. We are moving to an apartment while we save for a house, so my goal is to make the new place look chic and homey, yet realizing Ikea & the thrift store is more reasonable for an apartment.

Now on for a few teaser pictures until the real ones come in. These are from my BFF and her dad. I know I’m biased but they turned out pretty darn good. I literally remember starting to walk down the aisle and seeing so many more people than I thought would come to the ceremony. Therefore, I instantly wanted to say hi to everyone; I was so overwhelmed with emotion. Then I realized that it may not be appropriate so I gathered myself. But I just felt so darn loved, and it was one of the best moments of my life!

20120523-225433.jpg Happiest moment of my life, my dad walking me down the aisle. Words can’t express what this ment for me and to see all our friends and family!


If my dad waking me down the aisle was my happiest moment, I don’t even know what this is! So happy for him to be my hubs and for me to be his wife. The start to a great day and life together! My hubs is my best friend. I’m a lucky lady. ūüôā


And if you think I look happy in this pictures, just take a look at Jacob (the cat) and his brother Buddy. We came home from our honeymoon and Jacob could not be found… he was hiding like cats normally do when there owners come home after a long time away. We then picked up the Bud-man from my in-laws {still love saying that, I don’t know if it will get old} and Jacob came running out… They have been cuddling ever since. Pathetic… But in the cutest way!

See ya next week, lots of fun things to come!

Love and what?

I have had some friends and family ask where I came up the name with Love and Sapphire. Why sapphire? Seems kind of random, no? Well, me and Jonathan’s birthdays are both in September. His is the 15th and mine is the 30th. Although five years apart (I only say this because of remind him almost daily that he is older than me. Mainly for two reasons. ¬†First, declaring that my fiance is older than me makes me feel younger. ¬†Second, to remind him he should appreciate that a young hot lady like myself is marrying an old man like him.¬†kidding!). Anyways, sapphire being our month’s birthstone has become my favorite gemstone. I think it looks classy but it also sentimental. For this reason, when it came to wedding band shopping priority numero uno was to find a band with sapphires. Sapphires remind me of Jonathan and how lucky I am to have found such a genuinely loving and caring man to spend my life with. Ok, I’ll end the mushiness there.

I plan on incorporating different touches of Sapphire throughout my wedding day accessories. First and foremost is my wedding band.


Second is the bracelet I bought from Etsy that I mentioned here. I absolutely love it and think it will look great with my dress.


My last accessory is the matching earrings from the same Etsy store.  I contemplated buying them because I already had a pair that I bought 8 months ago from a sale on Gilt, but when I received the bracelet in the mail there was no question that the earrings would complete my look.


I ordered them Monday and can not wait for them to arrive! ¬†The only thing that makes me a little nervous is that they are so long and seem a little big. ¬†I usually wear the same stud earrings from Tiffany’s every day so these seem gigantic; but if you can’t bling it out on your wedding day then when can ya? My first dress fitting in this weekend so I am crossing my fingers they make it to me by then.

Does the name of your blog have a special meaning for you?  Do you really like a certain gemstone?
