Place settings like this (ivory chair pads, table cloths, napkins with gold chargers)
We both love calla lillies- All of the wedding flowers will be callas.
We plan to use bowl vases with lighting underneath for the low centerpieces.
Our tall centerpieces will consist of about 10 callas (does anyone know how many I would need?) in some sort of tall cylinder vase with branches (curly willow?)- possibly colored black and gold. We will most likely use some of these to decorate the alter during the ceremony as well.
We'll have a candle-lined aisle, and a chandelier. Still debating whether to have cylinder vases, uplighting, or nothing behind us.
We have a chandelier, tall curly willow, uplighting, and around 50 cylinder vases w/ floating candles... can't wait to see how it'll come together!
Our colors are black, ivory, and champagne
Both the ceremony and reception will be held at the ballroom on the lake- it's the same lake that we were flying over when he proposed. The ceremony and reception will both take place in the same room, so during the social hour, the tables will get moved into place for the reception. I know it's not the ideal situation, but it'll have to do...
I took some better pictures when I was home last weekend, but until then...
UPDATE 11/25: Photos of the ballroom- Our ceremony starts at 5pm, so it will be dark.
Mike proposed with a round solitaire in a temporary setting & let me pick out my own ring setting. I choose a solitaire setting with trellis sides (similar to the one shown below).
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the wedding band I have picked out. It's a prong-set band eternity band, but we'll probably get the look, not the price by going with one that has diamonds halfway around.
While searching for rings online today, I found these pictures. Now I'm debating a 5 stones or more? Any opinions?
We went back to Kelly's parents' house for the weekend to attend the wedding of her friend. It had been a pretty slow week at work, so Mike suggested that we take Friday off, head up to Lowry Thursday evening, and go flying on Friday (not unusual- we're both pilots).
Friday, June 12... While I was busy taking pictures of the ground, Mike had taken the ring box out of his flight bag & set it on the floor. We were around 1 nautical mile high & flying over the biggest lake in my hometown when Mike suggested that we do a 'negative g' maneuver (we usually do this every time we fly so it didn't seem odd). I agreed & he said, 'here we go...' When Mike pushed the nose down (part of the maneuver), things in the plane started to float... including the ring box- right into my lap! I couldn't believe that he was actually proposing & kept asking, "Are you serious, is this real?!" I eventually said yes & now we're planning our wedding at the ballroom on the same lake (we were flying above when he proposed).
