UPDATE 9.23: our e pic teasers!!
as everyone knows, THE most important! i searched UP and freakin DOWN for the perfect photogs...and I found them!! The Linczak's are a husband and wife team with unbelievable talent. And they couldn't be any nicer!!
i've very, very, very excited to get my make up pro-done on wedding day! i love these looks so much
hair up for the ceremony:
down for the reception:
On the Menu!
For beginners, we'll start with a Garden Salad with either Ranch or Heritage Hills' House Raspberry Vinaigrette, which is SO good. It tastes like you're biting into fresh strawberries! Also served with fresh rolls
Then our guests will have a choice of Queen Cut Prime Rib:
or my personal fave, Black Peppercorn Butter Salmon with Sweet Red Pepper Sauce...YUM!! SO good. Both served with sour cream mashed potatoes and lemon broccoli. There's also a vegetarian pasta, which also sounds good!
UPDATE! we found a baker that will do a cheesecake and key lime pie for us!
below is the cake we're going with, only we're having the orchids be green and the ribbon at the base of each layer choc brown. it will be sitting on top of a glass square filled with LED candles, then on top of brown linens :)
We have BOOKED our reception site! WOOO! I love it. It's in PA, Heritage Hills Golf Resort and Conference Center. Click here to see the 360° view of the Terrace on the Green, where ours will be held =-D

Just trying to get some of my thoughts together =) Feel free to leave any advice/suggestions!
got my uplights!! woot woot! thanks Kiah!!
just white light (obviously...) with amber inserts!
<-- for the head table: i'll still have varying heights of square votive holders. not sure which color of candles yet, but i'll have rose petals STACKED the whole length of the table (i'm not talkin a few scattered, i'm talking layers!) this is our mock up :)
exactly like this, but with black linens! Thanks to ShellS for the inspiration =)
but without the star fish
<--for the low tables: just like this! only the vases are square and some candles will be floating (pic on right from miss_em!). there will be LAYERS of white petals (not just a couple here and there) on alternating low tables. Our tables are round, and i we'll have around 15 candles per low table.
our mock ups of our low cps:
these table numbers at each table!
ESCORT/GUEST BOOK TABLE
Our guest book/escort table will have a miniature version of the high centerpieces. It will also have river rocks and thick layers of petals. Instead of traditional escort cards, we'll blow up a picture of one of our engagement pictures into a poster like the picture above, with everyone's name and table number listed!
and for a quick refreshment:
Hi girls! I know I personally love to put faces to names! So here's some pictures of us so we can get to know each other a lil better...besides we're all planning our weddings together!!
