Our Best Man (who really is a great man!) is planning a vegas trip for the FI as a suprise for the bachelor party! Which i am so excited for him about. They leave in about a week for 5 days. BM has so many things planned, a golf trip, VIP access to clubs, appointment at a shooting range, and a VIP car rental and drive about in the desert! AMAZING. Honestly who knew men were this organized!...all in the name of Vegas I guess! WOOT.
They are baaack! and in 5 days the slept 13 hours..TOTAL.
Hey when in Vegas right?
A few pics of my love..and his boys...LOL BestMan and an M&M LOL..and yum!
We visited the sleepy little village of Jordan Ontario on May 30th for our e session with Stec Photographers.
Planning for this shoot was SOOO much fun! We love the 40's and wanted to incoroprate it into our wedding somehow, what better way than the e session!
I had a vintage dress made (Blue dress) by ACT Vintage in Bowmanville On (Thanks Ashley!) and she did an INCREDIBLE job.
We had 3 looks one modern and 2 vintage outfits.
FI and I LOOOVE them!
Ladies....What do you think?!
Music is such a big part of our life. We love music all kinds...in every form.
No surprise but out DJ is one of the best in our area and as such one of the the most $. To US its worth it 200%!
"Our" song has been for a long time Carrie Underwood’s Inside your Heaven. SO that was our 1st though for our wedding song. We want to make it a special song and our moment so we have created quite the list from TV, Radio and those music stations on our Rogers.
Here are our other options for 1st Dance songs UPDATE!!! None of these were quite right for us we are going to go with Carrie Underwood - look at me ( I LOVE this song and its just under 4 min which makes fi veeeery happy lol)
You Make it Real by James Morrison
Follow Through by Gavin DeGraw
You're my Inspiration by Chicago (such a powerful song)
The Book of Love by Peter Gabriel
Completely by Jennifer Day
For me there has only been one option for myself to walk down the aisle. - Pachebels Canon in D Major
For the ladies. and ring bearer we are thinking - Air on the G String – Bach
No real ideas for the time when we are signing the register OR when we exit? Any good ones you want to share?
I want to make this day as special as can be, and of course I have 2 of the specialist ladies in my whole world as my MOH and BM. So I want everything to have little special touches for them. Im going to make little charms for their boquets and then have a neclace with a clasp that it can be added to later on that they can wear after the day is over.
So far I've just got their initals, they are Gold with little clear crystals, I'm thinking ill get some cute little charms, like a little high heel for the MOH and a Peace sign for my BM...Im also putting one together for FG.
More to come on this one!
THEY ARE DONE! here they are
This one is for my MOH and Bestest Friend ever! She is in love with Paris and shoes..well lets just say her and i speak the same language.
For my FSIL and very good friend, shes more sporty and i dont know why but she loves peace signs..lol
for my darling neice a little purse and a butterfly(see far left)
The day after the wedding we are going to change them from boquet charms to key chains!! using these!
BM is all about peace and nature etc so i have this charm..
MOH is a shoe slut...not unlike myself so this one was so perfect!
and for my little diva....
FI and I have decided that we are going to add a little special surprise for our guests in-between the ceremony and reception. Kinda a bomboniere for them.
We are going to have a little custom 'voucher' on each seat at the ceremony and it will let them know that the Bride and Groom are sending them on a Wine Experience at Peller Estates winery immediatley following the ceremony.
We did our trial run a few weekends ago its gonna be sooo good.
They will be taken over to the winery in a vintage trolly, and will go into the barrel cellar and have a tasting of Red, White and an Ice Wine, and then be transported back to the Pillar and Post for the cocktail, hors Dourves hour.
Le Trolly...so excited, they decorate it with ribbons and bows in our colors, and will have a congratulations!! sign on it for us.
Starting with a Seasonal Red Blend (Delish!). moving into a White (Vidal, Reisling ect) and finishing with a Late harvest icewine.
