Paul and I met through a mutual friend. I hesitated to go out with him, but he sent me flowers at work on Valentine's Day, and I felt I could at least go on one date with him. It turned out GREAT! We've been together and in love ever since. We are getting married on May 28, 2011 and are SO excited about it!
He proposed on the beach at sunset!
Hello everyone in PW land! I'm so excited to marry the love of my life! It's coming up so fast. I love looking at all of your ideas and weddings and hope anything I put up here inspires some of you! I'm a DIY bride who is making every cent count. I love planning my wedding and love making all this stuff my own.
Here are some of our engagement pics. One of my BM's took them. She's amazing and is going to take my B-pics too.

My possible rehearsal dinner dress. We're having a cookout! I promise I'll have a tan by then. And little white sandals, not socks. :)
Random pic of groomsmen gift, flower girl bag, and teeny cake topper. We are doing all cupcakes, so this will be on the top one. It's so cute. I put a soda can next to it so you can see how little it is. I love it!
The front of my invites! I love my invites. They are about 5 pages all put together with that ribbon. They took forever to make, but I'm in LOVE with them!
