aaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnd here's what we're doing for favors! a PHOTOBOOTH! 4 hrs, a consultant, thumbdrive, and scrapbook, and pics for guests to take home!! I couldn't beat this deal I got on TIPPR.com.
I can't wait for everyone to see this!! My FI family has never gone to a big wedding like this before, he says, "this will be more like an EVENT for them!" LOL
It's perfect to help our families get to know eachother, after a few cocktails of course!
My FI owns a CrossFit gym, and I am an avid CrossFitter as well, what better way to represent! We plan on taking pics like these in July sometime.
Actual Engagement Pics
We found it! Here is where we are getting married. Together for 5 years, engaged on our 5 yr anniversary, and we will be married 7 years from the day we met! Ballyowen Golf Club! Ceremony is outside, Cocktail hour is indoor/outdoor in the bigger building with floor to ceiling windows, and the reception is indoor/outdoor in the lower building! It's super rustic but chic at the same time... it's totally us! This first pic makes the smaller building look tiny... but it's pretty big, it can hold up to 140 people I think. We're planning on 115- 120 people.
Reception building below.....
Inside reception building
Maybe the Limes in vases with orchids on the guest family tree signing table.
I found this off of someone's page, forgive me, if it's yours let me know! I asked my brother to make this for our sweetheart table!
Our cocktail hour has a fireplace, but for May, I don't want it lit, I'm thinking I'm going to put big ivory candles and vary the heights like this... Nevermind, my Venue doesn't allow open flame, and there will be logs in it. :(
Centerpiece Lanterns with apples and corks and moss:
I purchased the lanterns on the left from PW's own, MurphNoMore!!!!! So excited to use these as my centerpieces. I think I will add little clear votives around. Trying to stay away from flowers. Some will have lanterns, some will have wine bottles with orchids or callalilies I think.
Wine bottle vases-
Moss Balls- I just purchased these from PW's Jesandshan, I can't wait to use them in my centerpieces.
Burlap Table runners-Still looking to purchase these, or something like it. I think I want more square/rectangle in the center of the table as opposed to the whole runner. Bought these from Etsy.
Green Apples, place cards and then used to decorate the tables. If they are tables of 10, we will have 5 apples on each table.
Uplighting- I have it in my DJ contract for 10 uplights throughout the room! gonna kind of look like this:

I love this idea... it's get's some pictures over with, without seeing eachother, and you can still make it to Cocktail hour! I don't know if I can go without seeing him though, knowing he's right THERE!!!!
