The Wedding is Booked

September 25, 2010! We have booked our venues for the wedding and our date will be 9-25-10! I am very excited that I was able to negotiate a great deal and get my top pick! The ceremony will be at St. Paul's United Methodist Church and the reception will be in the Phantom ballroom at Hotel ZaZa! The church and hotel are right next to each other so it will be very convenient, not to mention both venues are BEAUTIFUL! I am relieved to have this part of the planning taken care of because now I can start to think about other, cake, bridemaid dresses, decor etc. The colors will be smoke (think dark, shimmery, charcoal gray) and mulberry (think dark pink) with accent colors of white, black and silver. These colors evolved from the beading on my dress. I have posted some additional photos that I like for decor "ideas."

Halloween Weekend 2009

We had a wonderful Halloween weekend...Friday night, Ed and I went to dinner at Glass Wall in the Heights with our friends Miranda and Jeff. Saturday, Lindsey and I went all over town scoping out possible reception venues (I found a lot of "no's" not much luck on finding a possible "yes".) For Halloween night we had a few friends over for dinner and dressed the dogs up in costumes. Buddy is the pumpkin and Maggie is the lobster. Ed bought tons of candy and sadly we only had 3 trick-or-treaters all night! So now there is a big bowl of candy left over... I will have to find a way to get rid of this candy! Sunday Lindsey and I went to Heaven... I mean the outlet mall in San Marcos! :) I finally used my pottery barn gift card and bought some great holiday decor! Is it too soon to start decorating for Christmas!?!?!
