{The Inspiration Behind} Our Ceremomy and Programs

Ill be honest. I am having a freakin' blast planning this wedding. There is something to be said for having a long engagement, no lie. Hats off to those who plan in short timeframes.

No matter how fun it is to plan the reception, we have not lost track of why we are doing this in the first place. When planning how our ceremony was going to go, Jason and I knew we wanted three things....short, intimate and fun. This was the beginning of our marriage and lives together! So I started brainstorming on how to make the short ceremony reflect the best of us, individually and as a couple. I did research on how to break down ceremonies and the best way to lay them out. Thankfully my sister Shelly had given me a few books from when she was planning her wedding and they helped out a ton. As much as this may not give enough credit to themeaning of the ceremony but it is a performance in a way. You have to make sure it flows and keeps the "audiences" attention and most of all tells the story. We wanted our story to relate express us. Give our family and friends an inside view into our relationship and whyit is we love eachother. Honestly you can never truly know what goes on behind closed doors of any relationship but hopefully our ceremony will give a peak on how we communicate and love eachother. I dont want to give out too much of the actual ceremony and be a spoiler so I will give some fun hints for the atmosphere we are picturing.......

  • Pinwheel Boutineeres
  • Bali wedding flags
  • Ribbons, Ribbons, Ribbons!!
  • Mousse in wedding attire. Nuff' said.
  • The entire bridal party in a sea of blue..might be my favorite detail so far
  • James River in the background.
  • BOATS and more BOATS!
  • Toes in the sand.
  • Love in the air!
  • Tying the "knot"...wink! wink!
How FUN is this!? Doesnt it make you think of a DMB or Jimmy Buffet concert? <3 it.

Um HELLO 2011?!??!?

Bajeezus. I cannot believe that 2010 is over. So much amazing stuff happened this year that it is almost overwhelming to think back on. However, bring it on 2011. This is our year. We are moving into our house in the next few months, GET MARRIED and spending a week in Jamaica just the two of us. It is just so wonderful to think about. Who knows what else is in store for us?!!

Have a FANTASGREAT new year!!
