Win a Ticket to The NotWedding!
If you’re engaged, then I’m sure you’ve been paying attention to all of the buzz surrounding this year’s NotWedding. A fake wedding to inspire real brides – what could be more fun? There’s no better way to see if a vendor is the right fit for you and your big day than to see their work in person and experience their work as a guest.
That’s why Blue Eyed Yonder is giving one lucky bride a FREE ticket to the 2013 NotWedding in Atlanta!

Joining the Gingers
I know it’s just hair, so why is it so hard for me to build up the courage for a change?
I have been eyeing these gorgeous ginger locks for some time and finally decided to just go for it! To start, I’m going with a semi-permanent color that will fade over time. I was glad to hear that option was out there, that way you don’t have to marry it right from the beginning.
My all time favorite stylist, Marie, at Dada Salon gave me a darker red color with copper undertones. So it’s not a major change from my natural color, but still a fun sidestep from the norm. I really like it! I think I’m getting braver, maybe next time I’ll even take it up a notch!
How are you with your hair? Are you hesitant to make a change or do you jump right in?
Happy Friday + Instaweek
Have you guys been asking yourself, where has the week gone? This week was packed with so much fun and inspiration, it’s hard to put it into words. From the NotWedding rehearsal dinner, to an amazing lunch with Rustic White Photography, and my first “secret society” meeting – my head is spinning in happy thoughts and tons of great ideas for the future. I feel so blessed to be surrounded by so many sweet and talented people in this industry. It’s true – creativity breeds creativity. Thanks for making my cup overflow!

Funny how my hair looks red in this pic, it really will be red by next Tuesday – yikes!

Happy weekend guys!
Well, hello there
There’s something about seeing an old car cruising down the highway that just makes everyone smile – complete strangers pull up beside you to give you the thumbs up, people happily toot their car horn or wave.
Growing up, we were constantly surrounded by old cars. We spent many a weekend dressed in poodle skirts and bobby socks for local car shows. Heck, most childhood memories of my Dad involve him in the garage tinkering on one of his cars. I guess an appreciation for things of the past is just engrained in me. It’s true what they say, they just don’t make ’em like they used to.
That’s why I think it’s so cool when brides choose to use a vintage car as their get-away vehicle. They’re just so fun! Seeing a bride and groom hop into an old car and pull away from the guests with a stream of cans rattling behind it is just so charming.
For that reason, I’m so excited to introduce you to this pretty lady! You’ve seen her in last year’s Summer in the South shoot, and now that she’s been spiffied up a little bit, we couldn’t be happier to officially welcome her into the family! (The car, not the girl, silly!)
This gorgeous 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air is such a fun car. With it’s flashy turquoise and white colors, you can’t help but smile while you’re cruising down the road.
Whatcha think? Wanna go for a ride?
In an effort to preserve our vehicles and maintain their beauty, our cars are only rented for a limited number of events each year. Please contact me at hello (at) blueeyedyonder (dot) com to snag one for your special event!
