ransom and i got married several months ago in an intimate ceremony, but recently had a larger reception for more family and friends, and it was a blast! as we’re both writers, it seemed fitting to have the event at one of our favorite bookstores: the last bookstore in downtown LA. we’ve had a lot of requests for photos, so i thought i’d drop a few here. hope you enjoy them as much as we do! 

:::for the especially curious:::

my bouquet: was made from the pages of ransom’s novel (miss peregrine’s home for peculiar children).

our photographers: brandon + katrina of brandon wong photography.

venue: the last bookstore in downtown los angeles.

catering: the extremely fabulous heirloomla.

flowers: from floral art!

rentals: furniture from found rentals, dishes from dishwish!

the band: one of our favorite local indie bands, the gallery.

hugs and books!

For a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a gaseous nebula must collapse.

So collapse.
Crumble.
This is not your destruction.

This is your birth.

  • me: no but i've seen gifs

zainaaaab:

I can’t associate with people that think their culture is more important than Islam. Islam comes first, always.

Some people care too much. I think it’s called love.

—A. A. Milne

Perhaps, the problem is not the intensity of your love, but the quality of the people you are loving.

— -Warsan Shire

I opened a song my friend sent me, then went back to other tabs. After about a minute I was like ooh I really like this (it was an instrumental) so I went back to youtube and turns out the song hadn’t even started and it was the ad that was playing… “Because of Him” from mormon.org LOLL

It’s sweet when someone knows every single detail about you. Not because you constantly remind them, but because they pay attention.
