Jul 9, 2008

It's probably time that I got around to posting on this. Since I don't
really know where else to start, I'll start with pictures. Everyone likes
pictures after all.

First off, me and Stephen.

"The ring that started it all..."

My beautiful bridesmaids... I could easily describe them all as my best
friends, so I'll try to refrain from using that as part of their descriptions.
Mishaun, Maid of Honour

Mishaun is pretty much amazing. She is one of my sorority sisters. I'm so
excited that she is going to be my maid of honour! I'm actually a
bridesmaid in her wedding as well, which is 17 October 2009. We even got
engaged less than 48 hours apart!

Danielle, Matron of Honour

Danielle is one of the sweetest, nicest people you could ever meet. She is
also one of my sorority sisters. Though she "hates" the matron term and
I'm trying to figure something else to use in its place, I'm so honoured to be
standing up in her wedding on 2 August 2008 and glad that she agreed to
be in my own wedding.

Ulyana, Bridesmaid

Ulyana is an awesome person. We met when we worked together two
years ago. She's my favourite Russian. :) I'm so excited that she
will be a bridesmaid in my wedding!

Groomsmen haven't all been asked yet, so I'm not including their pictures

My beautiful niece, Olivia, who will be the flower girl.

My nephew Jacob will be the ringbearer. Unfortunately, the only pictures I
have of him on my computer at the moment are of him being a total
goofball. That's what you get when you have a 7 year old version of
my brother running around.

Dress that I'm currently lusting over (Casablanca 1902)

Dress that I would probably get if it wasn't so damned expensive
(Pronovias Nacar)


Hair/makeup inspiration

Another makeup inspiration


We start our location tours on Monday. We're going to a place called
Big Canoe
. It's really pretty and should be gorgeous in October. I think
we may try to look at BlackStock Vineyards and Winery on Tuesday as
well. Again, it's up in the North Georgia Mountains, so it'd be stunning in
the fall. We also have an appointment to tour the Georgia Tech Hotel
and Conference Center
on 22 July. It's in downtown Atlanta, so we
wouldn't have the mountains, but it'd be really special to Stephen since he's
a Tech alum. While I'm a diehard Auburn fan, I definitely can't slight Tech
(except when we play each other... ;) ).

I think that's about all I have for right now, aside from inspiration pictures.
I'll save that post for another time. It's late and I need my beauty sleep...
