You guys! I think I’m ready to start my recaps. Our pro pics arrived, and I’ve got a lot of pre-written posts about the week before (and after) the wedding to get us started. So, I’m going out on a limb here and getting this recap party started.
However, before we get started I am going to come right out and confess… writing recaps has been really difficult. With a destination wedding, I wasn’t sure what was over-sharing. It has been hard to break up the posts into manageable content, and I’ve struggled with how much detail to provide. I have even asked several people how best to organize the posts (including some bees, thanks guys).
Ultimately, I decided that my favorite Weddingbee posts have been filled with tons of detail (and probably over-sharing). I love me some details, so that’s what I’m doing. I apologize in advance for a lot of “we did this” [insert photo]. I am definitely not a professional writer and I struggled with how to make “we did this” more interesting/entertaining. Unfortunately, I came up with nothing, so…. sorry! Please, be kind.
Why Total Re-Collie? Confession… I may, or may not, have picked my recap title my very first week of being a bee. (ok, I did.) Right after I was selected to blog I went to visit Mr. BC in Hawaii. He is extremely creative and pun-ny, so while I was there I asked him for good recap titles. Here was his list (yes, I kept the list for nine months):
- Every Dog Has It’s Day
- Love Unleashed (pretty sure this has been used already)
- Canine Connection
- Total Re-Collie
He had me at Total Re-Collie. Sure it’s a nod to a
kinda (OMG, I’m so old) outdated 1990 movie with Arnold Schwarzenegger (and a horrible 2012 remake that is best left forgotten). But, the pun of recall/recap/collie was just too good to pass up.

Let’s do this thing! Welcome to the Border Collie wedding.
