Countdown to “I do.” – 238 days!

Richard and I spent a good portion of yesterday at PeakFest, an annual downtown Apex celebration including food, local vendors, and live music. The weather was absolutely beautiful. We’ve gotten lucky this weekend, because today is gorgeous, too!

We ventured into Antiques on Salem Street to poke around and look for any gems that may be hiding amongst the massive amount of stuff / junk / dusty memorabilia. I found the most beautiful pair of champagne coupe glasses and HAD to have them. When we got to the counter, the owner showed us a matching pitcher and 4 matching salad plates — all equally gorgeous.

We bought them all.

Each piece needed a soapy wash, so here are some “before” and “after” pictures that I took today.

If you remember, I shared a small collage of photos in the post about A Color Palette — some of those photos showed gold-rimmed dinnerware and glassware, so this was an amazing find!

For our wedding, we plan on using the champagne glasses for the two of us and two of the salad plates for our wedding cake plates!

I couldn’t be more excited.
