Since the wedding is spanish victorian themed, I thought I would do my hair something that looked victorian like this:
And I thought I would do my eye makeup like this with shades of silver and copper/brown and long (false) eyelashes, and I think a light rosybrown lip and light rosybrown cheeks.
Our cake is being made by Simply Cakes in Riverside County. It is going to be a variation of this cake that I found searching the web and just fell in love with. It will have the square boxes and the different roses and will have the ribbon and all will be in shades of white and ivory. But it wont have the birds or butterflies, instead our cake topper is going to have love birds in ivory (it is the cake topper from my parent's wedding).
And it will sit atop an antique silver cake stand like the cake in this pic and the roses will be more like these roses and be more in this white shade with ivory:
I'm looking forward to our wedding cake!
Here are pics from my awesome, butterfly themed bridal shower. Pics were taken by Ryan Bethke Photography! I love how they came out!
Me with two of my bridesmaids and my maid of honor.
Beautiful, yummy cake by Lana from Yummy Treats!
Me with my mom (the mother of the bride) :-)
Bridal shower games; toilet paper wedding gowns!
Opening presents, yay!
Gorgeous, antique, victorian sapphire and diamond ring that my bridesmaids got me to wear as my something blue on my wedding day!!! :-)
Me and my puppy, honorary bridal party dog, Leeloo!
Here are some bridal shower portraits:
My antique, sapphire, something blue ring and my cute, rehearsal bouquet made out of ribbons from my bridal shower presents :-)
It was an awesome shower!
I can't post the actual dress because I want Ryan, and everyone (but especially Ryan), to be surprised...but the look of the dress and of the wedding is Old-World, Spanish Victorian...so here are some pics that were inspirational to me :-)
Here is our ceremony site...it looks like an old spanish mission too!!! Works so perfectly with our reception site and both work so well with our theme!!! More importantly, this is the church that I was baptised, got my first holy communion and was confirmed in...I grew up in this church and my faith grew too!!! It is very special to me!!! :-) I can't wait to get married to Ryan there!!!!!!!!
