Share your pics?

15 Nov

Did you take pictures at the wedding? Would you mind sharing them with us? We’ve created a special Flickr account just for this purpose. We’re looking for any and all photos, whether they’re from your phone or your fancy camera, or from Instagram. That’ll tide us over until we get the professional photos back in a few weeks!

If you are so inclined, please email maggie.wilhite@gmail.com, and I’ll reply with instructions. We’d love to add yours to our collection!

Wow.

What a dream that was! Thank you, dear friends and family, for making it all come true. We are still living on that rainbow, and we’re gonna ride it all the way to Mexico!

It’s tomorrow!

It’s finally here! There’s been some confusion as to the start time, so I’ll tell you right here and now: the ceremony starts at 4:30pm. The venue is a little under an hour from Austin so make sure you factor that in! We are so, so excited to see you all!

The final countdown

Where we’re registered

The picture here is from our engagement day almost a year and a half ago (aka the best day EVER), and that there is the Mayor of Austin, Mr. Lee Leffingwell, right after he presented me with a proclamation that June 24th, 2011 is Maggie Wilhite Day in Austin, TX. Swoon – we were so young! So in love! Hey, we still are. Time has flown by, and we’ve created a truly special event to mark this momentous occasion. Can’t wait to see all of your lovely, shining faces on Saturday.

Southpaw shares the love with music

28 Oct

That Southpaw Jones, y’all. He’s a gem! To celebrate our wedding, he’s sharing his entire catalog of songs on his website. Like, all of ’em! *SWOON* If you’re not familiar with his genius, now’s your chance – check it out, download it, and hey, listen to it on the way to the wedding! He’ll be returning to the stage in 2013, so be sure to sign up for the mailing list while you’re there.

Instagram our wedding! #magpaw2012

23 Oct

Instagram is a great tool for sharing photos with your friends and family! If  you’re a smartphone user and not familiar with how it works, Maggie explains the basics:

1. Download the Instagram app from the app store on your smartphone (it’s free).

2. Launch the app and sign up for the service. You can choose to import your contacts (0ther friends using Instagram) from Facebook, Twitter, or your email account. Click “follow” to include them in your Instagram feed.

3. You can connect your Instagram to your Facebook account if you want, but you don’t have to. Instagram functions as a separate network. Each time you post a picture to Instagram, you can choose whether or not to also post it to Facebook.

4. From within the Feed tab on the bottom left of your screen (it looks like a house), you can scroll through all the photos of the people you are following.

5. To take a photo, push the middle button that looks like a camera. This will bring up your device’s camera, OR you can choose an existing photo from your camera roll by pushing the icon at the bottom left that looks like two squares on top of each other.

6. Move and scale your photo and then choose a filter from the list at the bottom (my favorite part), and hit the green check mark.

7. Add a caption and don’t forget the #magpaw2012 hashtag for our wedding photos!

8. Choose the networks with which you’d like to share in the bottom half of the screen (or not!), and hit the green Share button in the top right corner.

9. Aaaaaaand you’re done! Let the likes and comments roll in!

Don’t forget: #magpaw2012 is the hashtag for our wedding! Can’t wait to see your shots!

What’s on the menu?

20 Oct

Jeez, do we ever think about anything except food? Yeah, not really…

Without giving too much away, we got the best caterer in town to create a perfectly unique Mexican feast for our special day. It’s only appropriate, since our Friday Night Mexican Dinner is a long-standing tradition in our relationship. We’ll be having fancy enchiladas, nachos, and of course a hearty vegetarian option. We’ll have a varied sampling of local brews and perfectly paired wines (I may or may not be sampling that wine as I type this). We’ll also have some fun non-alcoholic choices. Par-tay!
