#1 The Place




This is week 6. I checked out this location today and it's absolutely AMAZING. I wanted to find that place that made we want to run around I was so excited. Yay! The moment I drove into the property I was in love. Beautiful green grass, white house, RED barn (eee!) Tomorrow I'll take the boy and make sure he likes it too.

The price is also very reasonable. It includes all the tables and chairs for the reception (in the barn) and includes set up fees. Pretty sure I couldn't stop texting my love all the way home.

About Me:
Once I got engaged, I realized that I've been to about as many weddings as I can count on one hand. This worried me a little (okay a lot) so I dove into the most popular resource available - the Internet. Needless to say, I found a plethora of fabulous wedding blogs and sites that I became addicted. This is week 6 of my engagement and I have multiple folders on my computer dedicated to my upcoming wedding filled with photos, menu ideas, vow ideas, and so much more.

So here I am tonight. This blog developed like this.

Me: Babe, I'm addicted to these wedding blogs.
Him: Why don't you start one of your own?
Me: Okay.

Here I am. And I'm sooo excited. I've checked these things off my list:
The dress (but I can't share too much in case the boy finds this blog)
The photographer (This really did take 6 weeks...hardest decision we'll make I bet)
and....possibly location. Which is so exciting!!! Here are the details:

We've reserved 2 places. One beautiful park in the middle of tons of land. It's got a blue spring, lush green grass, and awesome old farm cabins scattered around it. One problem - a caterer would never want to come there. Basically it's fend for your selves...in the land of simple. Electric's all we got friends.

Place number 2 is a cute bed a breakfast with a lake. It's alright, but still not everything I imagined. However, I've never really thought about my wedding day until about 6 weeks ago so I wasn't sure what I wanted. Until I found today's location.

Anyway, I'm feeling very accomplished. My goals were to get these numbers done before school starts in August:

1. Dress
2. Photographer
3. Place
4. Flowers
5. Caterer

After all that big stuff everything else will come together pretty easily.

Don't be too quick to dismiss the location you love. Where there's a will, there's a way to get that caterer out there! Good job!
