More Wedding Stuff

It's getting so close!!  September 5th is the big day...  38 days to go!  
It is starting to get more and more real!  
Yesterday we met up with our photographers to look over our Engagement Pictures and order a few of them.  Our photographer is Rebecca Ford from Ford Family Photography... and she is absolutely fabulous!  Make sure you look at her blog for all of her amazing pics.  (she even blogged about our pics, so exciting!)

My parents and TL's mom have been absolutely amazing, supportive, loving and giving through this entire process.  We feel so fortunate to be able to have everything we could have ever dreamed of!  Everything is going so smoothly!

Another amazing part of our wedding is our wedding planner, Kendra!  She is so fabulous.  A lot of people have asked me why we decided to get a planner... and let me tell you... COMPLETELY worth it.  Here's why:  
*She has practically paid for herself in all of the discounts she gets us on everything.  10% here, 20% here, free this, free that... it all adds up!  
*No one at our venue Arden Hills Resort wants to upset us... because that would mean upsetting her... therefore her not referring her brides there anymore!  (It's magical)
*She is so knowledgeable about the best in the area.  She has referred us to some amazing vendors, (including our ADORABLE cupcake baker Carissa... look at her BLOG). We are really happy.
**and most importantly... I am NOT stressed.  After more than 15 years of wedding planning, she knows it all! :)

She has so many cool things on her blog... especially the weddings she does and different ideas she has.  She is the best in the area.  Thanks, Kendra!  We adore you!
38 Days to go... I am so excited to marry TL!

WOW! 38 days to go, time is flying sooo fast but as Kahlil Gibran says,
" Marriage is the golden ring in a chain whose beginning is a glance and whose ending is eternity."
On that note it's just the beginning of a Wonderful Life time of togetherness !!!

I think your pictures are gorgeous. How exciting only 38 days! You will make such a beautiful bride:)

amourissima said...

Even though "Wedding" isn't even part of my vocabulary right now I think having a planner is the way to go! The whole "not stressed" is a huge thing so really all you have to worry about (basically) is showing up in your dress with a smile on your face ready for kisses and cake.
Yippee!!!
