I'm sorry if I have used one of your photo's with out giving you credit, just let me know and I'll add your name, I just don't remember from where or whom I took the photo's from.
We where planning a wedding for 11/12/2011 in Mexico, but do to poor communication from the resort we have decided that it would be better to cancel while we had time to.
So now we are planning a Winter wedding in New England, We still don't have a thing for this new wedding, but hopefully everything comes together.
We are engaged as of Sunday the 20th (Father's days)2010. :)
We woke up at 6:00 AM so that we could be on the road by 7:00 to make the three hour trip to his parents private beach where we where meeting my parents, brother, and his parents. We arrived 30 min early so we decide to call my parents and see how far they where. Well to make a long story short, they ended up going the wrong way so they where 45 min away. At this time FI is livid, he wanted to be on the beach by 11:00am which was not going to happens. so we waited for his for his parents to arrive and then decide to go to breakfast while we waited for my parents, well I don't know how fast my father must of driven because they where only 20 min behind all of us.
So once my parents arrived, we headed to the beach. We arrived at the beach at 11:45am, we up packed and got situated. then I decide to change into my bathing suite. while I change I later found out that FI was showing my ring and the sign which he wanted our fathers to hold up when he asked.
Once I came back, we laid out in the sun for a couple of min, before FI asked me to go for a walk because he need to go pee(lol). I said OK, and we head toward a rock bed and bushes to the right of where we had placed all of our stuff.
We reached the rock and started to climb them to the top, once there we looked at the ocean for a couple of min, before he said "OK let me go pee so that we can get back to our parents". well he went Thur the bushes while I just looked at the waves( with out me noticing he was seeing if our parents where getting ready). when he came back we walked a little farther down the rock bed, and then he told me "lets go back to our parents", when I turned around I notice a BIG sign flapping in the wind being held by my father and his. I started reading it" Tanya Will you" that is when I had to start reading it over" Tanya Will you marry me? Please?????, once I turn back around he was on one knee, at this same moment I heard our song blaring in the back ground. I of course yelled yes, and then he put the MASSIVE rock on my finger, then we walked back to our families.
We spent the rest of the day at the beach and then went out to luch at local sea food restaurant. once we split form our families, we drove the 3 hours back home, and ordered in and then finished of the night with some celebratory drinks.
It was more then I EVER thought he might do. It was PERFECT and I can't waite to marry my solemate and bestfriend on 11/12/11 on the beach in Mexioc surronded by the people that love us. is it 11/12/11 yet??????
Please excused the bathing suite. wish I knew I was taking photos. But whatever!
LOVE IT!!!!!!!!! it is perfect, everything that I want plus more.
I final was able to take some creative photo with my point and shoot camera , still have to take photo's with my Marco, but here they are. the best part is that FI surprised me one Friday with flowers and what best time to take the photo's.
Fi's sister had her baby shower two weeks ago, and while we where there, the ladies in his family presented FI and I with our engagement basket, this basket is something they always do for recently engagement ladies if there family. it was great!!! the basket was huge and was so heavy that I couldn't carry it, it had so many goodies. Some of the goodies where: a wedding planner, four wedding magazines, toasting flutes, white flip flops for me and a pair of black ones for FI, the everything destination wedding book, a huge bottle of bubbly, maracas b/c we are getting married in Mexico, and the best part is that these maracas Fifather got while there where on a trip to the resort that we are getting married at, a photo album, a ring photo frame,all wraped with tulle in the color of our wedding and some more stuff but I can't remember now, here are the photo's that I took.

This is the ceremony site:
We will have white chair covers with Silver sashes on them.
Would like the draping of the back wall like this, Will be trying to DIY this aswell with the left over Tulle and our photography stands:
will also see if they have two more of their ceremony post to create a chuppha with and have draping similar to this:
replace the heart with a chandelier, and replace the balloons with flowers, not sure if they will be able to do that b/c that where the fabric will meet with the post.
Would also want some draping on the aisle like this:
will try to make this out of the left over tulle that I have.
Aisle runner and entrance set-up. but it would just be tall vase with floating candles.
We would like our welcome tables at the ceremony to have one our programs and guest book, and a centerpieces on it.

Still don't know what she will be wearing. thinking of this:
with this head band, not sure if I'll try to DIY it.:
We would like this over the dance floor with the light that the venue already provides, we would re-place the balloons with white lantterns in different sizes, we would like a "bling" chandelier to re-place the heart at the gathering of all four post, but we will be ok will more lantterns. this all depends on the bugdet.
I would like to add lighting so that it looks like this but just in blue.

We will be DIY panel pocket invites. the pocket will be 8.5 x 5.5 and it will have three inserts, with a ribbon belly band. they will be black and silver. This is m mock up digital( if that makes sense)

We are not sure yet if we are going to do programs, we won't have a lot of people that don't know each other so it might just be a waste of time. But if we do decide to do them then they would look similar to these:
they will be 3.5 by 8.5, I also want them to fit into a shirt pocket or even a pant pocket so the will be pretty small.
DIY Memory candles:
