the wedding extravaganza ends {and it was perfect}

After a year of endless planning, obsessing over wedding blogs and magazines, dedicating my time to all sorts of DIY projects for the wedding, and being simultaneously extremely excited and freaked out, the wedding extravaganza has come to a close. We had an amazing week with friends and family, then a relaxing week at a beautiful resort in Mexico. I have realized that sometimes the things that you cannot control {such as rain during your outdoor ceremony} can make the most beautiful moments of your life. I also learned that you cannot style every detail of your own wedding and that real weddings are not perfect like magazine weddings. It is the people that surround you during the brief time of the ceremony and reception that make the wedding amazing.
Now that we have made it back home, I am ready for my new life of being Mrs. Kara Kopp and all the wonderful things that will come with that...
I thought that I would feel withdrawal from the wedding madness and projects that went along it all, but instead I feel very excited to be able to focus my time on my career, making new jewelry and art, redecorating our apartment, cooking, and relaxing with Zach.

Also, more photos to come from
as she was our amazing photographer that traveled from California to shoot our wedding.

Please expect regular postings to come as I get into the swing of married life.
