The Wedding!!!

Due to our seasonal limitations for wedding planning, we chose to wait until 2010 rather than hurry and get married this Spring.  We decided on March 20, 2010 since it is right after the time change (it will be lighter later!) and then we have plenty of time to honeymoon before fire season.  We are planning the ultimate vintage/Rock'n'roll wedding!  We made a website together to inform guests about the wedding and 'our story' . . .

We are getting married at Rockwood Women's Center in Santa Barbara, only a few blocks from where we live!

Here are some pics of the venue:

We will be having our ceremony outside under the oak tree followed by a cocktail hour, and then the reception right inside.  The interior is a ballroom built in the 1920's!!!  I LOVE it!  I will probably hang some pomanders or mason jars with candles or something from the tree . . .

Something like this maybe?

Our colors are black and white with red (and probably some pinks in the flowers and such.  

As for the centerpieces we are mixing vintage with modern.  I don't want every centerpiece to be identical so we have vases and votives of various sizes and shapes.  Some are mercury glass and vintagy looking and others are square black glass.  We also got a bunch of these to use for some of the centerpieces:

We are going for black and white striped table runners and a funky/rock and roll style!
