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.
Here is pics of the ring from our e-session.
One and only picture of our tablescape from the photographer I got :(
This is one of the BP tables
Flowers came from sams club and rununculus came from fiftyflowers.
Centerpieces have FINALLY been decided upon.... well, almost.
Cocktail tables, bar and bathrooms
For the head table
I purchased crystal candlestick holders from RubyRed713. I have four, 2-8", 2-10". I plan to add a pomander on top similar to these.
For the bridal party kings tables

I purchased 19 black urns, also from RubyRed713. I plan to use them for the guest tables. I still haven't decided what flowers I will use, but she used carnations.
Still love these....Curly Willow and Manz Trees
I love the ribbon and tags from McBirdies bio
I still love these centerpieces with fruit...
My bouquet inspiration (from Kristeen)
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.

We picked our cake!!
It will be three tier, round cake. It will be white almond, with black raspberry filling and sweet buttercream icing. We will also have a sheet cake made of chocolate almond, with bavarian filling and sweet buttercream icing.
