When i saw this I fell completely in love and have been obsessed!! My FH agrees & really likes it too. I feel like it's femanine, romantic and masculin all at the same time!

I love it

Also, We have ordered our BMs dresses. We decided on style 3( see blog below & thanks for all the votes!) it seemed to be top 2 favorite with WBC brides and i had my girls pick which one of the two they prefered! The dresses will be in early January! I am so excited to see them.

Wedding Invitation
WE FINALLY HAVE OUR MAGNETS! It feels so real! I cannot wait to get them in the mail on monday! And i am really looking forward to the response to them!!!

I ordered these from! They were kinda pricey but are totally worth the money in quality!! They are exactly what I wanted!!

The style is 'promises kept' the text "Save The Date" originally said "say I do" but we altered it a bit, and i am so pleased with the way they turned out!! They were 105$ for 50! But if you 'like' them on facebook sometimes they have discount codes for you to take advantage of! So if your in the market for photo save the dates, DO BE SURE to check out! And of course props to our photographer( for the picture:)

Hope everyone is having a good weekend & HAPPY PLANNING EVERYONE!!

Engagement Photos
So it has been awhile since i have been on WBC! And i'm excited this semestar is finally over! And i can throw all my extra energy (aside from my children) into wedding planning!

So at the beginning of november we FINALLY had our engagement pictures taken, by our AMAZING wedding photographer. Nathan Migal with Imagen Photography!

We have ordered our save the date magnets & i am in the process of creating a photo guest book, for the reception, using our engagement pictures. I will share the design for the magnet once they arrive(which should be any day now!)

Take a look at our photos!! And if you are in the NE ohio area and need a wedding photographer check out
Okay we all agree we LOVE this dress. but it can come in so many color combinations. I have narrowed it down to these 4 color choices!!!

We will do shoes that match the waist band!!


If you were a bridesmaid and were given the option......
Wedding Timeline
What is everyones timeline from Ceremony to reception!?

I found a church that i LOVE but the only time they have available is 12:30 and our reception doesn't start until 5:30 or later!!
I don't mind the time gap, to take pictures & let my kids nap. But at the same time i don't want to be chillin in my dress and what not for 4 hours!!!! plus i feel like with such a time gap that some people will only go to one or the other?!

What is everyone else doing? I need some insight, because i might just have to find another church?!

Wedding Cake
Fun Cake Ideas
Our colors are Ice blue, with touches of crimson red & white.

Our cake will have an ice blue fondant with white demask design & a few dark red flowers around it, probably gerbera daisies.

Our flavor will be RED VELVET!! So once we cut into the cake there will be crimson red inside!!! Which was a brilliant idea. My FH chose the flavor, with actually keeping our colors in mind...which blew me away. Sometimes i feel like i'm talking to myself when i'm talking about the i was SHOCKED when he came up with the idea to have the red velvet, to keep with the color scheme!!

What kind of shape, color, flavor are you doing?

is anyone else is doing a 'non-traditional' wedding cake banana, or coconut?

any other fun ideas?!

Wedding Reception
First Dance
So our first dance is going to be 'Lucky' by Jason Mraz & Colbie Caillat, the song on my profile.

I think it would be fun to have dance lessons for our first dance, make it more exciting and fun to watch for all our guests. Maybe a waltz? Probably won't happen, but would be something totally fun to do with the FH.

is anyone having a choreographed first dance?
what's your song going to be?

The Ring
The Ring
UsThe Ring
It's been awhile.....
December 25, 2007 was when Matt first purposed. It seems like forever ago! Maybe because it was. We had been together for nearly 3 years and had a two month old son, Dominic. It was your 'textbook' christmas day purposal. We had decided we would get married May 2010. Giving us plenty of time to plan and save money. Well we ended up being blessed with a second child April 14, 2009. A wedding of any kind was out of the question. During our extended & chaotic engagement my ring went MIA. It was a smaller 3 stone diamond ring with a yellow gold band. The plan was always to upgrade when we had some extra money.

February 14, 2010. I had a feeling that I was going to be getting a new engagement ring. Probably because we had gone to the mall a month earlier and picked out my replacement ring. I wasn't allowed to know which one he would pick or when he would give it to me. He took me out for Valentines day & asked me to marry him again with my new beautiful ring!

I was so excited & felt so lucky to have the same man purpose to me twice with two different rings. That night we decided that it was time to get married. May 7, 2011. was what we decided

After booking our reception venue & Dj. We ended up moving the date to May 21, 2011. We are so excited & now that we are close to the one year mark it is time to really start planning! I CANNOT WAIT!!!
