I had a big day at work today. Going on temporary assignment for the rest of the year. Pretty exciting! But I'm sure that's not what you would like to read about. Dave and I made a pasta carbonara for dinner then drove out to Ravenna to meet with a DJ. We loved him and put a deposit down! I'm so excited to have another thing done. We have all of our vendors and have paid all the deposits. This is really happening!! We are going with Cipriano Productions. The owner is a nice guy who just loves music. Tomorrow I am going up to my moms to see my aunts and cousin. That should be fun and I'm sure wedding stuff will be talked about. :) Happy Halloween weekend everyone!

We got our engagement pics taken yesterday! It was soo much fun. I went and got my haircut before so it looked fresh. :) We were worried about the weather (it was supposed to rain) but it turned out to be perfect. Not too cold and not too windy. We got some great pics with the sun peaking out from the clouds overlooking the valley. We went to an old barn and the basement of the Winking Lizard! I love old things haha. We also hit up the train station in Penninsula. I cannot wait to see how they look! Our photographer is great, I have known him for a long time. http://www.easywindstudio.com/ is the address if you want to check them out! I will be sure to post pics whenever I can :) We are using one for the Save-the-Dates.

I finally talked to a DJ (for 1.5 hours) today. Not sure if we are going with them but saw them at a wedding recently and loved them. The party definitely went all night long. I also bought tickets for the bridal show in the Falls this weekend. I am excited for that! I have never been to a bridal show and (most of) my bridesmaids will be there! :) On another note, we have our engagement pics tomorrow so I spent some of the night getting ready for that!! I can't wait. Love, love, love our photographer (more on that tomorrow) Lots going on this week so I will be updating often! TTFN!

We are trying to decide where to go on our honeymoon. We went to Punta Cana in the DR in March and loved it. The all-inclusive sure would be nice after planning a wedding! I enjoy traveling to new places though and would love to go somewhere new. Anyone have any ideas or experiences to share??

So I thought I would add some back story here. We have a lot of pictures of our engagement and this is a great place to display them. For Dave's 30th birthday I got the FirstEnergy Loge at the Akron Aeros minor league baseball game. 14 family members and friends were invited. For months I had been asking what he wanted for his birthday since he is hard to buy for. He always says he doesn't want anything - which can get super annoying because I want to get him something!. Everytime I asked he would reply "you". During the Aeros game everyone was called together to sing "Happy Birthday" I was asked to hold a cupcake (we couldn't bring a cake to the ball game) with a candle in it while people took pictures. When the singing was over Dave pulled out a ring and said "I told you all I wanted for my birthday was you" I was really happy to be able to share this with the family and our close friends!
Hello! Everyone keeps asking me to keep them updated on wedding plans and I figured this would be the best place to do it. I will try to post as we do things. I will include pics of some of the DIY. We currently have all of our vendor's contracts signed except the DJ. I never imagined how many desicions there are to be made!! I am trying to do a lot DIY (with my mom and Aunt...and Dave??? :) ;) ) The theme is Vintage. Oh, and the date is 10/15/11!! One year from tomorrow!!!
