Our Wedding II

In my last post, I did forget one thing: our wedding trailer!

We met Evan Scott through a friend when he spent a semester in Nashville. Since Chico and I are Craigslisting fiends… well, mostly just me… we had already hired a newby videographer from Craigslist to film our wedding. After hanging out with Evan, he ended up giving us his card while saying, “I’m warning you- don’t look at my website because you will want to fire your videographer and hire me.”

And that’s exactly what we did.

The video he filmed and edited for our wedding speaks for itself.


Our Wedding

Even though we’ve been married for a few months now, I want to start this blog off with our wedding photos! We spent almost an entire year planning our wedding and couldn’t have been happier with our special day!

We got married in my hometown of Chicago and added some vintage touches to our decor. Looking back on our wedding, the word that really describes our day best is “blessed”. Our family and friends came out from all over the U.S. to celebrate with us and support us. We could not have asked for more!

Welcome Friends!

Hello everyone!

Welcome to our new blog Guitar Picks and Bobby Pins! Chico and I have noticed that there aren’t many resources out there for couples who deal with having a spouse on the road. We hope this blog can serve as a tool to help others cope just as we learn how to live this crazy life as a newly married couple!

Whether we are together or apart- Here’s to a good life and a great marriage! We hope you enjoy!
