Wedding inspiration board- Art Deco & Peacock Feathers

The very first place I considered having my wedding at was Casa Del Mar located right on the beach in Santa Monica. (Read the post about my wedding location search here!) Built in the 1920's the hotel has been fully restored to its full Art Deco glory! It is truly a gorgeous venue and lends itself perfectly to a Art Deco/Peacock/Art Nouveau type wedding.

I thought it was THE place for sure. That is until I found out that the food and beverage minimum, regardless of the size of your party, is $30,000 for a Friday or Saturday night. Um... no thank you. But of course the day after I saw it and before I had a chance to price it out I had already in my mind and on my laptop started dreaming up an inspiration board for it.

Here's the board I started before my dream was abruptly interrupted... $30K yikes!

Gettin' there...

So of course I've planned to document my belly growth from month to month but until just recently, 5 months to be exact, I really didn't have much to show. We took a photo at 16 weeks but I didn't think it was enough to post! BUT now that I have a burgeoning lil bump to show off I can post my 16 week pic for comparison.

It's kind of weird... not at all what I thought my belly would look like at 5 months. I guess I just pictured more of a low, round bulge not the high, flat-ish bump that it is but I'm sure in another month it'll transform into a big round belly. :)
