You Cant Spell Wedding Without Alex

Seriously, this is the LAST wedding post for a while.

The bride in a bird-cage.

Seriously. The veil is called a bird-cage. But no birds were harmed in the making of this veil. I hate birds so that was a little disappointing.

Me hanging out in the bathroom taking multiple pictures of ME.

At least I waited until I was done peeing.

My son the ring bearer. And terror as he attempt to make a run for the church nursery. Luckily saying IT’S OUR TURN somehow flipped the cooperative switch and he made it down the aisle without running or trying to throw the ring plate like the frisbee it was.

He loved the boutonniere. He hated the jacket. He loved the professional photographer. He hated the mama-photographer.


I would\’ve thought my first email subscriber would be a lot weirder, too.

The second person I’ve ever met solely because of Twitter. (I actually told her it was the first because I’ve been friend with fyeahmotherhood for sooooo long (dude, did we go to elementary school together?) that I forgot we met over Twitter as well. BUT I did hook Vera and ave42designs, also known as THE BIRD CAGE BRIDE, up, which got her THE GIG!)

I did NOT get a commission so I forced her to take a picture while she was working and sweaty. Fair is fair.

And of course, we can’t be in an art gallery without some art appreciation. Or WTH.

Seriously. What is going on here.

Me and the anteater. (Seriously. She ate ants as a kid.)

We should\’ve been anteaters. But alas, only a picture of an elephant was available. Stupid art.

And a AWWWWW!!! for the family.

E isn\’t looking at the camera in this picture. But I look better in it. Bloggers Without Makeup did nothing for me.

Are you exhausted from my eight week whirlwind, too?

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. That’s a really fun dress – good pick (credit goes to the bride, I’m assuming?). And speaking of, I think the bird cage is really cool. Very different from the usual veils out there. Again, good for the bride for thinking out of the err…cage.

    Alex, awwww indeed! Your family rocks formal wear. Love that you shared it with us.

  2. Warning: gratuitous fawning post ahead!

    You guys are THE MOST GORGEOUS FAMILY EVER. I know this because my caps lock spontaneously pressed itself in enthusiasm over your glory.

    Loving the birdcage, too. I think I should have postponed getting married until my friends and I were all older and more glamorous.

  3. 1. You look very Katherine Hepburn-esque in your Bride’s Maid dress and hair. Super classy chic. LOVE IT!
    2. You are so freakin’ popular. You have been in more weddings in one month than I have been in my whole life I think.
    3. What are you feeding E? He looks like a man. “E, STOP MATURING!”

  4. Took a break from packing to peek at your photos (was intrigued by the thumbnail on Facebook) – you have a beautiful family and your son is gorgeous (he looks just like you!). How cool that you met some “fans” as well 🙂

  5. It was such a lovely wedding and I was so happy to be a part of it! And how funny that I would be part of the wedding having known you both on Twitter first! 🙂 You ladies all looked gorgeous. 🙂

  6. It’s sad but true … I would have been tempted to toss the ring-plate-Frisbee down the aisle, too. And without the promise of a whole tier of cake to myself, I don’t know that I would have been able to “turn on the corporate” like your son. =>

  7. You and your family are totally adorable.

    Side note: I’m obviously catching up on past entries. My real life is starting to take too much time from my virtual life. The horror! 😉
