Spring is here!

I know I haven’t posted in some time, but a lot has been going on! Including:

We are getting married!

[Back story about the photo - there is a beautiful sculpture garden near us that I had been wanting to go to for a long time. We spent the day walking around the grounds, taking photos of ourselves posing with some of the statues. During one of the self-timed pictures, Dave got down on one knee. This was the result.]

Here we are post-proposal, “Oh my gosh we’re engaged!” written all over our faces:DSC_4617

After the initial shock/excitement, I called my mom (and everyone else) and we drove an hour to my grandmother’s house to tell her the news in person. Such a special day – I am truly blessed.

Wedding planning has proven to be fun so far, but it’s definitely its own special brand of stress. (On the one hand, I want to find the perfect place, know that we’re going to have perfect weather, wear the perfect thing, and on the other hand, I know that it’s going to be wonderful no matter what, and I can’t lose sight of what the wedding is actually about – marrying Dave!) (Also, why in the world are things so expensive? Recommendation – if you want to save money, do not get married in the NY/NJ area.)

Right now we are planning on having the wedding July 12th, 2014 at this very beautiful location:

I love the idea of having a more casual outdoor ceremony with a tented reception, and this venue seemed to fit that vision to a T! Now it’s just a matter of praying to the heat/rain gods…

Next step – wedding dress shopping! Stay tuned…

  2. Thank you so much! I think I just added more as you were posting this, so I don’t think the photo you are referring to is 3rd from the bottom anymore, but whichever it is, I really appreciate the comment! : )
