MrEB3 and I met at what was one of the hottest night clubs in Atlanta, GA on Thanksgiving Night 2005.  At the time neither of us was looking for love and neither of us wanted to even think about being in a relationship, but you always seem to find love when you're not looking.  MrEB3 called me the next day and we went out on our first date to the Clubhouse in the Buckhead area of Atlanta.  We hit it off immediately and have been inseperable ever since.  Although MrEB3 was born and raised in Atlanta he was living in Indiana at the time, so we were in a long distance relationship for a few months until I moved to Indiana to be with my man (smile!)  We currently reside in South Carolina where MrEB3 is an Engineer and I am a Corporate Recruiter.  After 3 years, 3 cities, lots of laughs and a lot of love we are getting married and we are so excited to be spending the rest of our lives together!

We went to Atlanta to celebrate my 26th birthday with some of our friends the weekend after my birthday and we had a ball!  The next morning MrEB3 woke me up for a "road trip."  We got in the car and started heading north on I-85 (in my head I was thinking we were heading back to South Carolina and was quite pissed off but kept my cool.)  Before we could hit the South Carolina border MrEB3 pulled off on Exit 126 and started heading to Chateau Elan, a gorgeous vineyard in Braselton, GA, (which I made sure to point out to him the million times we drove between Greenville and Atlanta.)  I was so excited I was speechless all I could think in my head was "this is the best birthday EVER!!!"  Little did I know that my sweetie had a lot more up his sleeve than just a birthday celebration.  While at Chateau Elan MrEB3 sent me to be pampered at the spa.  When I was finished we headed back to our room and when I opened the door there were candles lit throughout the entire room.  There was a cadlelit path that led up to a table of candles that spelled out "Will You Marry Me?"  MrEB3 got on one knee and asked me to be his wife (I can't remember everything he said, I was in complete shock of what was happening and totally amazed that he was actually able to surprise me)  I couldn't stop smiling and of course said yes!  That was one of the best days of my life... It was PERFECT!

An Emerald Cut Solitaire.  I never thought I would be a solitaire kind of girl but once MrEB3 slipped this baby on my finger I was SOLD!  I absolutely love it!  MrEB3 picked it out all by himself and did a FABULOUS job!  Sorry the picture is blurry, we took it with my cell phone the night we got engaged.

We will be getting married on a hot summer Thursday night in Braselton, GA (just outside of Atlanta)  Our families live in Atlanta, we both graduated from college there, and we met there so it made perfect sense to have our wedding in Georgia as well.  We originally planned to have quite a large wedding, but as the planning progressed we decided to go with something more intimate.  We dropped our guest list from 150 to 25!  We feel like having a more intimate wedding will allow us to focus on what the day is truly about and to be able to enjoy the company of our closest friends and family.    Since we're getting married at a winery, We're naturally going with a  vineyard feel with a romantic twist... very  timeless.  We know it's going to be an amazing day!

When we first started planning we knew we wanted to have a very romantic, chic and timeless wedding.  Our wedding colors are aubergine, green and cream.   I love this color palatte and think it will look great for a summer wedding... it took us a long while to make a final decision on colors but we made it!     I found this Inspiration Board on SnippetandInk and couldn't have done it better myself.

Back to Chateau Elan we go!  We were originally going to have our wedding at another venue in Atlanta but with dropping our guest list we decided to have it at Chateau Elan (the same place we got engaged)  It will be extra special for us!

MrEB3 haven't decided if he will wear a grey suit or a black suit yet.  

The Planning Bio of FutureMrsEB3 photo 18
If he decided to go with the black suit he will wear one similar to this one,   Neither MrEB3 or I were feeling colored vests for the wedding so we decided to go with black on black for a modern twist on the normal black and white tuxedos.

MrEB3 also has a three-piece gray suit that he looks extremely handsome in.... so this is a strong contender.  (and my choice)

I really struggled with what dress I was going to wear... so much so that I became a "4 dress bride"!  AHHH!!!!  But... I have made a FINAL decision and I couldn't be happier.  I found a GREAT deal on my Gown.  I purchased it from a bride on Preownedweddingdresses.com I will be wearing DomoAdami #94156.  J'ADORE!  It's PERFECT!  I love how unique it is and especially love the back!  YAY!

My Mom is my matron-of-honor and will be wearing a cute black dress in her choice.  We'll be going shopping for her dress soon.


HAIR

I will be wearing my hair similar to this...

I have purcased some clay garden roses to go in my hair as well and am debating if I will wear them for the wedding, or in our engagement pictures.

MrEB3's Aunt who is a professional cake designer, insisted that she make our cake as her wedding gift to us.  We FINALLY decided on a cake.  YAY!  We love it!

We're having a red velvet cake and it will be very simple on the outside.....

VistaPrint was having their promotion for 100 free postcards so I decided to make our save-the-sates.  I designed these in less than an hour, I think they came out pretty good and it saved on postage.  Oh yeah, and they were free (almost, I just had to pay for shipping) But you can't beat that!
These were ordered when we were going with a larger wedding.
