John and I live in Orange County, CA and we're getting married October 4, 2009 at Ponte Winery in Temecula. We have been together a year and a half and he is the man of my dreams!
A Couple Engagement Pics by our photographer Lauren Hillary.
We fell in love with Ponte the moment we saw it. I love how the ceremony will take place right next to the vineyards. I can only imagine how pretty it will be in the fall! We both share the love of wine so we think this place is perfect for us.
My Colors are going to be Green Brown Cream and Gold. The bridesmaids are wearing an brown tea length Jcrew dresses . Here is a picture of some flowers I love. I plan on using chocolate brown linens and gold chargers at the place settings. We already bought our favors, wine stoppers.:)
These are our wine cork place cards:
Our invitations from Papeterie. They will be backed in chocolate brown card stock.
Ideas for the cake:
I get to go to a cake tasting in a couple weeks. I am so excited. I already bought a rhinestone initial cake topper from EBAY. It is gorgeous! I want to use green orchids instead of pink and brown ribbon.

I bought these Regina B earrings from another PW Bride. They are perfect and the pearl accent matches my bracelet :)
I love these ring bearer pillows from etsy 5eizen...more than I want to spend...I ended up making my own.
My first DIY...I am not a crafty person so this is my first DIY. The flip flops were a dollar each at Michaels. The baskets were 40% off. The ribbon says FROM THE MR AND MRS and fits perfectly with our brown, green, and white theme.

Table numbers from Papeterie that match our invites. Then I glued five real wine corks together to make the stands.
