Making Progress

Another weekend in town meant getting more things done for the wedding. We had directions printed off for the invitations, now we have everything we need to start addressing and sending them off. I did some minimal crafting, making pom poms with the rest of the yarn I had. We also finished getting registered. I am in the market for some shower and rehearsal dresses and I found one this weekend. My shower at Steve's parents house is Hawaiian themed and I found a great dress at Target for it. See below. But mine has a totally different print(they didn't have the right one online to show you). Mine is pink, orangish and yellow and has hibiscus flowers on it. I think it will fit the occasion very well and I can take it on the honeymoon. :)

Engagement Photos

We received the proofs for our engagement photos in the mail this weekend. We had them taken in Forest Park a few weekends ago. It was a really sunny day and I ended up pretty squinty in most of them. Below is one of my favorites. If you would like to view all of them, you can check them out here. This is all of them our photographer sent us. I do not like all of them, but there are a few good ones. A big thank you to Jessica, Steve's youngest sister, for going with us to get them taken. She was a trooper and took care of Chewie for us. Lets hope I'm not so squinty the day of the wedding and that I like more of those photos!

Just One More to Go!

Last weekend Steve and I went to another wedding. Holly and George got married in Belleville. Allison and I were both in the wedding. It was so nice to get to see her and hang out with her.

Aunt Nancy was kind enough to do our hair for the day(even though she doesn't do "up do's" hehe) Thank you again!

Allison and I in downtown Belleville, looking really green. hehe
Steve and I do not have any more weddings to go to until August. Just one more to attend then it is our turn! :)

So Cute!

Dad emailed out this picture of Chewie, but it is just so cute that I had to post it on here. It is the background on my laptop at work and I catch looks at it during the day and it always makes me laugh and smile.

He is just too cute! Love him!

While trying to check the many, many things off of my wedding to do list, I emailed the caterer this week and confirmed our menu and a few other details. I am so excited for the food. It was delicious when we went for our tasting. I saw this salad at a wedding on the Bride's Cafe and it looks similar to the one we are having. Is your mouth watering yet? Mine is!

Yeah Right

I often look at The Knot's "What We Love" blog of wedding ideas and today I saw this.

Exit Ceremony Idea - Tandem Bike Getaway
Haha. Really? Can't you just see Steve and I now trying to ride a tandem bike away from the ceremony. I am barely able to ride a regular bike, let alone a tandem bike and in a wedding dress. Haha. Dream on The Knot.

This weekend Lauren and Nick got married!!! It was a wonderful wedding. Lauren (and her mom :) ) did a fantastic job putting everything together.
I got to get a sneak peak of the bride before her walk down the aisle and she looked beautiful.
The happy couple having their first dance.
Some of the girls at the reception.
SL and I dressed up as mermaids at Sandbar, pre wedding.

Wedding Day Pictures II

Here is another group of pictures that I love and want something similar taken on our wedding day. Pictures of the bride's shoes! While mine are not designer, like many of the ones I see on the wedding blogs, I still would like them to get their own photo op. :)

Wedding Day Pictures

Last weekend Steve and I got our engagement pictures taken(yes engagement pics 1 year and 2 months later. hehe) and it got me thinking about some pictures we might like to have taken on the big day. Don't worry I will post some of the engagement pictures once we have them, so be on the look out for those in a few weeks. :) Anyways here are some examples of one I would love to have take. My dress hanging up before I get to put it on. I think it would be really great to get a picture of it hanging in the Piper Palm House. It will have to get done quickly though, since we can only be at the PPH at 1 and the guys will be showing up at 1:30!
