Chocolate Brown with Fuschia and Orange! :)
We will be doing escort cards to guide our guests to their assigned tables. I purchased tent-style place cards and put a flourish stamp and crystal on each. Then I attached each card to a floral pick. The guests' names and assigned tables will be calligraphied onto each card. The place cards will then be inserted into a bed of moss. They will look similar to the ones below, only in fuschia and brown...
Cocktail hour will also be at Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club between the ceremony and the reception. This picture is of the patio where it will be held. We will have an acoustic guitarist, signature cocktails, and appetizer stations, as well as tray passed appetizers. Hope FI and I get to try at least some of them! :)
At first I thought I wanted a veil. Then I decided that I didn't. Now, I want one again! I know...typical bride. I think I'm finally set on wearing one now, though. I'll only wear it for the ceremony, along with the feather flower above, and then take it off for the reception. I guess it's the only time in my life that I can wear a veil and get away with it! :) I'll likely do a fingertip length veil with a plain, cut edge and no crystals, pearls, or beading. Simple and elegant. It is being made by my dress seamstress and will look much like this one without the beaded edging...
FI and I will be staying at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott in Dana Point for our wedding night. We booked an ocean view room with a late check out. Our first night as husband and wife! :)
FI and I shot our engagement photos out at the Salton Sea with our photographer, Kristi Klemens. What an awesome experience! Kristi is SUCH an amazing photographer and the photos she did for us prove that! To top it off, her fiance Paul of Blue Sky Videos tagged along and videotaped our session. He sent us the video he shot of that day. Such a great keepsake to have! :) Follow the links below to check it out... www.blueskyvideos.com > Enter site > Movie Gallery > Engagement.
