Im a clothing designer so of course I tend to sway toward handmade things. I wanted to add some small touches to the day that would make for great kepsakes to incorporate into our home once we were married. I love the pearl details that will be throughout the day because I think pearls are so classic and elegant. Etsy is one of my favorite sites and one of the places most of our special touches will come from. Here are a few.

So our colors are pink, purple, black, and white. I took this color scheme and set up and altered it a little to fit us but I think it will be cool. Especially once we add our special touches. I want their to be a thousand candles everywhere to also make it feel very intimate and close.

Both myself and my fiancé lost two great people in our lives that we are disappointed they can't be with us to share our happiness on our wedding day. We are not sad as we know they are in the best place in the world but we just wish we could have them here for this one very special day. We'd like to honor them by wearing charms in their memory. My fiancé loss his grandmother in 2006 and it was hard for him t go on without having her in his life as she meant so much to him. She was his mom, grandmom, best friend and cheerleader all balled into one. I lost my father in 2009 and I miss him so much. I am the baby of the family so of course I was spoiled the most by my parents and my siblings. I was his "babydoll" as he used to call me. So we'd both like to feel their presence along with God's on our wedding day and give thanks and honor to them. My charm will be placed on my bouquet wrapped into the ribbon and his will be worn on the pocket of his suit jacket with his boutonniere. After the wedding we will add them to pieces of jewelry. his will be worn as a necklace and mine as a charm on a bracelet.
Thanks Bum-Bum and Daddy for all that you taught us, giving us all your love and teaching us to be the two strong individuals we have become. You will forever live in our hearts and we will make sure our kids know all about the two people they didn’t have a chance to meet. Thanks to our parents that are still with us and will be there to support us on our important day.
We're so excited and I'm beaming from ear to ear. We booked our wedding venue today at the beautiful Chestnut Club in Center City Philadelphia, PA. This site is gorgeous and the perfect blend between worlds. One side shows a strong old architectural theatre style, as it was the first theatre in Philadelphia. The other gives the vibe of a NY Style Loft that’s great for the cocktail hour. We fell in love with this place as soon as we saw it because it defined us as a couple, our style and infused the intimate feel we want for our . The staff is excellent and I've heard nothing but good reviews from prior brides. It's also in the heart of the city where we met and share many fun nights out at different places. I can't wait for the venue to come alive on our wedding night. I've copied a few pics from their website

Welcome to the life of David and Yvette Travers. We met June 29, 2008 as we took our first stroll down South Street together the night our two friends introduced us, who are now married. We were friends for a few months before falling into a great relationship and after a few short months we knew we wanted to get married. One of our first dates was to a friends wedding and that was the night that did it. Everyone there thought we were engaged and we werent even officially dating.
It feels like we have already been together 10 years and its only been a few. Our relationship is really strong and we spend alot of time just getting closer. We are very blessed and spend alot of time enjoying life as a family with my stepdaughter.
We are getting married at The Chestnut Club in Philadelphia. We cant wait to have good time and spend our special day with our family and friends. It's really going to be a fun event filled with class, life, excitment and a million smiles.
