So here's to having the wedding we want, without comparing it to grander events or bigger budgets; to not focusing on the things we aren't getting and the places we can't go. To not walking through every step of the process feeling like we're settling.

In October of 2009, she created the hit website Regretsy.com, which led to the publication of "Regretsy: Where DIY meets WTF" in April of 2010.
