FI is very proud of the ring he picked out. I love it! I can't get a good pic but it is similar to this one from phannie. I love that it is unique with the setting offset. There is so much detail on the band.

My bouquet inspiration (from Kristeen)

Bouquets photo 1Bouquets photo 2


I was disappointed in my bouquet. It was not as lush as I was expecting, didn't have any orchids in it and the petals were turning brown when I got it. My groom's boutinerre was brown as well.




Bride's Bouquet - ivory/white roses, white ranunculis, white tulips, white stephanotis, phaleonopsis orchids, accented with soft white feathers, hand tied with white ribbon and a stem ornament.

I have always wanted to get married in a church. I think church weddings can be so beauiful. Although, I do admit seeing you ladies outdoor venues makes me a little jealous. FI's family is Orthodox, so it made our search a little easier. The first church on the list, a Greek Orthodox Church, one that FI's parents were married in over 30 years ago. Surprise! They still do weddings and all we had to do was become members and put a deposit on the Bride's Room. It's just as beautiful on the inside as it is out.
