Keep up with my adventures over at Jesstagirl and Her Officer

But in the mean time,

Here's the journey of a twenty-something writer who planned a wedding with her long-distance airman (The Air Force currently has him living 1,500 miles away).

Colors 'n Such: Chocolate and Pink

I don't know why this board is so small, but I can't - for the life of me - figure out how to make it bigger! These are some of my favorite inspiration pictures all rolled into one.

Chocolate/espresso and Pink will be the inspiration for our wedding.

I finally decided on this scheme because I'm in love with this concept for our centerpieces:

I love the rich, dark espresso/coffee beans paried with light pink, fluffy flowers. My brother's friend works at Starbucks and he's generously putting aside his free bag of coffee each week for us to use!

Getting to know the bride and groom...

Jessica (the bride)

Jessica Lynn Torres (the bride)

Growing up, I was always the token “hopeless romantic” among my friends. Whenever the latest romantic comedy was released I was there—tissue in hand—to watch the love story unfold. While my friends were meeting significant others, I was there observing the do’s and don’ts of dating, and even though my days of dating never resembled those in the movies, I now has close friendships instead of multiple broken hearts.

In elementary school I made a list of traits I wanted her boyfriend to have—and all the characteristics were so demanding I ended up putting it away several months after I realized—at such a young age—finding the “perfect” guy was practically unattainable. After getting to know Kenny, however, it turned out I was finally able to cross off every quality on that list.

From the (second) time I met Kenny I've been constantly attached to my cell phone (her text message counts go through the roof!), I've brushed up on my letter-writing skills, and I've flown across the country countless times to spend as much time as possible with her love. Living the life of a military girlfriend has not been easy, but it’s certainly been worth it.

Kenneth Elliot Sutherland (the groom)

When Kenny was younger he had a favorite red suit and a matching red bow tie that he’d wear as often as possible; his fiancé thinks he used to wear it around to charm the ladies even when he was just a little tyke. A geek to the core, Kenny went to college to pursue a degree that would allow him to play on computers all day, but while he was there aeronautics piqued his interested and soon he found himself signing up for the United States Air Force.

Before long, Kenny got commissioned and moved to Panama City, Florida, to complete training for his new job as an Air Battle Manager. Juggling his free time between work and a life outside was demanding, but he managed to see Jessica as often as possible. He’s now in Warner Robins, Georgia, where he recently bought a house. His plan of luring Jessica to move in with him was working, especially when he started filling his home with furniture the two handpicked out. His grand scheme worked when he asked the girl of his dreams to marry him. She said yes and will move in promptly after they tie the knot.
