First week of Us

The first week of marriage was bliss. No we did not leave for our honeymoon the day after our wedding not even the week after. We decided to stay here for two weeks and get things into order and just enjoy life together. We are so so glad we did! This week consisted of brunch, drive in movies, dinner with friends, cooking for our mamas, 4th of July with friends and even a Bob Dylan concert. It was the best week of my life so far. Marriage is the best. I highly recommend it!

Mrs Holcomb

So it happened.. We are MARRIED!

The day could not have been anymore perfect. The Lord blessed us far beyond measure. The weather was out of control amazing. Praise the Lord for a somewhat cool/ not blazing hot day AND no rain! Every single concept I had in mind came to life better than I ever could have imagined. Thank you to all of my amazing friends for crafting and setting up with me. I cant wait to see and show you the incredible pictures that Laura Zumwalt from Lovely Union took. How amazing is it that while looking for a wedding photographer Z and I found two amazing best friends in Laura and Casey. If you have an event/ wedding coming up or just want pictures taken check them out. You wont find anyone better or more fun to work with. Over the next few months Ill be sharing with you different concepts from the big day and how they came to life.

Thank you everyone who came to our wedding. We love each and every one of you more than we can say. We hope you had so much fun and got to enjoy all of the yummy treats!

A few places you should drop by for more pictures and details: My dear sweet Whitney blogged about the day over at That's Influence. And my BFF/bridesmaid Katie blogged about the day over here at Kate and Kuby. Love you ladies!!

Sunday Zachary and I are FINALLY headed to the beach for our honeymoon!! Wahooo. 5 days and counting!

My Bachelorette Partay

Thanks to some of my nearest and dearest ladies I had an amazing bachelorette party! First stop Mollie Fontaine's. Couldn't have chosen a more perfect place to go. If you haven't been GO! If you are looking for a fun girls night out.. go! It is super cute and the food/drinks are divine. Next the group grew smaller as we headed downtown for a little hanging out and later dancing. Perfect night with my gal pals! Thank you ladies for my most favorite girls night ever.

Aren't they beautiful?! Thank you ladies again for such a fun night! Love you all dearly!

everybody dance now

So today marks fifteen.. did you get that?... 15 days until I am Zachary's bride!!!! Eeeekkkkkk. :) Today I went by hutch and filled out my emergency contact form with my new information and I had to do it twice because I kept putting Allyse Anderson. (I'm going to have to work on the whole new name thing.) Luckily I am taking Anderson as my middle name so I didn't mess that up too badly. I also was able to put my status as MARRIED and husband next to Z's name! Eeek ekkkkkk eeeeeekkkkk!

So, in honor of all of the excitement of 15 days until marriage I would like to take a moment to dance.

happy friday everyone!

My Wedding Dress

My wedding dress.
I cant explain how much I adore it, how beautiful it is, and how perfect it is for me.
I cant wait to see the look on my mama and daddy's faces when they see me in it for the first time.
I cant wait to see my Zachary look at me in my dress for the first time.
Typing this now I already have tears in my eyes because I am so full of joy and excitement.
Thank you Lord for blessing me in so many ways. Thank you Jesus for Zachary.

The time I saw a Beatle

May 25 was a great day for many reasons.. 1 our dear friends Katelyn and Chase got married!! Two the Grizz played their first home game against the Spurs in the western conference finals.. sadly we lost. BUT still a very big moment for Memphis basketball. AND Three.. my sweet friend Andrea invited Zachary and I to go see Sir Paul McCartney in concert at the FedEx Forum. 
May 26 was a great day. Zachary, Andrea, Amy and I go to see Sir Paul McCartney live in concert. Our seats were in a lower level suite. This was Zack's first time to sit in a box and I would say it was QUITE an experience.

PAUL WAS AMAZING. He played 40 songs for 3 straight hours without stopping. The man is in his 70's and can still rock and roll like a champ and is still the definition of cool. Such an incredible experience that we will never forget.

Thank you Andrea for inviting us to this awesome night. I had a blast dancing the night away with you two.

Revision Church Shower

Zachary and I attend Revision Church in Olive Branch.. go check it out. Our Revision church family has truly become our dearest friends and our family. We meet in Olive Branch high school at 10:00 every Sunday. Please join us. Well these fabulous people who we love so dearly threw us a shower one Sunday night after community groups. Z and I were over joyed by all of the love and support these people have shown us. At the shower many sweet ladies prepared yummy yummy desserts and coffee punch (amen). If you haven't tried coffee punch then you haven't lived. Two thing we learned at this shower.. gift cards are the bomb and never underestimate how excited you can get over towels.


Thank you everyone! We love and appreciate each and every one of you!
