Sooooo I couldn't find any petal cones that I loved & I knew that I really wanted to have a Petal Toss as the fiance & I walk back up the aisle as Hubby & Wifey...it makes for such an amazing photo op =)
Sooooooooo I decided to make my own =)
They will be filled with hot pink rose petals =)
What do ya think?!
Love these pix!!! =)
On our wedding night we're going to be staying at the gorgeous Villa!!! I'm sooooooooo excited!!! It's freaking huge and sooooooooooooooo beautiful!!! Check it out:
"Built in 1996, the Italian Villa was the inspiration for this one-of-a-kind, two-story suite. 1,500 square feet of palatial elegance featuring private full-service wet bar, dining and living room areas, natural wood flooring, spiral stairway, two fireplaces, three televisions, piano and vaulted ceilings.
From the private garden patio and terrace, experience
uninterrupted views of the Westlake Village Golf Course, scenic mountains and lush courtyard areas.
The bathroom is elegantly appointed with marble and
granite accents and includes a Jacuzzi tub for two, a free standing shower, bidet and commode."
My girls and I are going to be staying there the night before the wedding so we can get ready there. I can't wait to see how all the pix will come out. I can't wait to get pix on those gorgeous stairs!!! =)
What do ya think?!
We created these Damask Save the Dates modeled after our Damask Invitations. What do you think?! I really liked the way they turned out =)
I knew from the moment I laid eyes on this place that this was it!!! We'll be having the Ceremony at the Tuscan Gardens at the Westlake Village Inn.
We'll walk thru this amazing Arbor towards this beautiful Tuscan Gazebo where we will become one =)
For the Reception we are renting out the entire Mediterraneo Restaurant. We are the first couple to rent the entire restaurant out. Normally they just rent the back room which we'll be using as the Dance Area =) I'm soooooooo excited!!!
The place is gorgeous with a completely amazing ambiance...all candlelit, black crystal chandeliers, amazing black leather chairs with silver grommets, 2 Fireplaces, French Doors galore and just GORGEOUS!!! The Restaurant is divided into 3 main rooms so the wedding will be progressive.
We'll begin the Cocktail Hour in this Room:
We'll then move to the Dining Room. The big table in front of the Fireplace will be removed & in place we'll have a quaint Sweetheart Table instead.
There is an opening to the Dance Room which will be revealed after dinner and the remainder of the evening will be spent cutting a rug on the gorgeous Dance Floor. I love the HUGE Black Crystal Chandelier and gorgeous fireplaces. They're fantastic!!! There are also gorgeous French Doors surrounding the entire Dance Floor which will be beautiful to let the moonlight shine through =)
You can say that our Wedding will truly be a Labor of Love for many reasons...especially because it will be on Labor Day weekend. It's going to be fabulous. I just can't wait!!!
This weekend I surprised my hubby-to-be with a trip to Disneyland!!!! We had the most amazing time =) I decided to go this past weekend so we could celebrate our upcoming 4 year anniversary a lil early. I sneakily packed a bag with his clothes, etc while he was in the shower and blindfolded him so he wouldn't know where we were going =) We set off onto our adventure =)
When we arrived to check-in to my surprise they upgraded our standard room to an awesome Suite! We had a full view of Disneyland & Downtown Disney. They also gave us 2 FREE Park Hopper tix to Disneyland, Happy Anniversary Pins, balloons, a card, pictures etc. It was awesome! The room was just spectacular!
The entire weekend we got hooked up with free things and upgrades. It was the best =) And better yet....this was the first time either of us had ever stayed at the Disneyland Hotel...which made it all the more special =) I even surprised my fiance with dinner reservations at the Blue Bayou. He's never been there and has always wanted to go =)
We even upgraded our tix to 2 Day Park Hoppers so we're totally gonna go back this coming weekend =) I can't wait!!!
I LOVE Disneyland!!! =)
I can't believe it....exactly 1 year from today I'll be walking down the aisle & marrying the man of my dreams!!! Time has flown so much already. I can't believe we've been engaged for 10 months already!!! I remember thinking wow we have TONS of time till we're getting hitched...but now the countdown has gone from months to days =) CRAZY!!!!
Thankfully I've taken advantage of all this time and have gotten a lot done. Still a few major things that need to be done:
~ Need a DJ
~ Need to decide on Cake
~ Need a Videographer
~ Need to start my 1,000,000 DIY projects =P
And most importantly....need to get off my lazy butt and lose another 15-20 lbs =)
But no worries...I'm gonna stretch it out so it's not overwhelming & Git 'er done =P
9.5.10 is just around the corner!!! =)
