I have a dream...

...or more like a vision! And a clear, consistent one for that matter! I met a potential florist today and you have no idea how excited I was when I showed her the ideas and pictures that I had been putting together for months, and she said that I have a very consistent vision for our wedding! No one is more shocked (and proud) than I am! Having experience in the special events industry has been both an advantage and a disadvantage during this whole planning process. On the bright side, I have been exposed to so many ideas, wonderful vendors, different styles, etc. BUT this has also created chaos in my own head because I have been exposed to so many fabulous ideas and I obviously cannot throw it all in one wedding! It would look like a nightmare tornado hit the wedding scene!

But going back to my story, I am so excited that someone else "gets" me. Someone thinks my madness makes sense. And from this I have drafted the following inspiration boards, composed from my super stalking blog skills and my favorite girls on the knot :)

Florist Update: Coming Soon...

Speaking of "If onlys"

Puggy in a tux

If only my dog did more than just look like this dog

My puggy who wouldn't be caught dead in a tux

If only I got paid to plan! $$$

Ya I strongly feel like there should be some sort of PAID wedding leave, similar to that of maternity leave! Wedding planning is a full time job! And Im not talking a 40hr, 9 to 5 kind of job. I am constantly wedding planning - at work, before bed, on the weekends, in my sleep...! If only I got paid to plan, then maybe I could afford these -

PuraLopez $300.00 shaa-right!

Truthfully, we all know my god given clutziness would never permit me to wear these day-of.

As Promised...

Pictures of the church

FUN FACT: This church is actually featured in several movies but most recently, "Liscense to Wed" with Robin Williams & Mandy Moore. I actually got Mark to watch it w/me!
