We are so excited to be able to share our story with everyone! It has been quite the adventure thus far and I know there is much more to come.
Our wedding planning began as soon as we returned from our engagement trip. We both were very excited to begin looking for a venue, and for about two weeks looked at different places. Google is every bride’s friend! We found many web sites dedicated to venues in North Carolina, and started to make a list of our favorite ones. I had always dreamed of a beach wedding, but with costs and really wanting all of our friends and family to attend, we decided that was not our best option. We found some other options that would still give us a gorgeous outdoor setting but would fit us a little better. We decided to go check out a few each weekend and hopefully find one we really liked!
If you’re going to a lot of weddings (as we are this summer!) using our notelettes as wedding card ideas can save you money. Instead of spending $4 or $5 on a wedding card to top off your gift, why not order a set of notelettes in a pretty pattern and keep them on hand for any gifting occasion? Continue reading
I’ve been asked to be a bridesmaid for one of my best friends and my old college roommate, Brooke. (Super exciting!) Of course, one of the most important duties of the bridesmaids is to have an awesome bachelorette party, so the six of us got together to think of amazing bachelorette party ideas. We wanted to do something a little different, but very special for her — after all she is so loved by all of us ladies! Our genius idea? A scavenger hunt, reliving the important steps in her life that got her where she is now – about to marry the man she’s crazy in love with.
Our Dream Wedding Contest is in full swing and we have so many beautiful engagement stories that we had to share a few with you! There are some crafty, romantic men out there and these stories will put a smile on your face. Remember to vote for your favorite. First place winner receives $1,500 towards a dream wedding dress and custom wedding invitations by Pear Tree!
My fiancé has the incredible gift of always being able to surprise me, even though he is TERRIBLE at keeping secrets. When he declared his intentions and surprised me on Valentine’s Day with flowers, candy, tea, and a goofy poem, that’s when I knew he was something special and he continued the trend when he proposed. I had known about the ring since January so when a beautiful Saturday morning in April rolled around, you’d think I’d have a clue. We were going to see the musical Wicked with his parents and he was distracted as soon as we got into the car. The musical was fantastic and we were full of energy as headed out to dinner at Tomayo. We followed dinner with a walk around town and then drinks at the bar of the restaurant. The thought that keeps coming back to me is how stunningly perfect the day was. The musical incredible, weather perfect, food exquisite, the lights were lit up downtown, the conversation flowing and lovely. After we had paid for our drinks at the bar, my fiance said “We should go for a walk… right now”. I was baffled since we had just gotten back from a walk around town. As we exited the door, I suggested that he pull the car around since my shoes were getting a little uncomfortable. He replied, “Funny you should mention that,” and a horse-drawn carriage pulled up to where we were standing. Continue reading Kathryn’s story…
My fiance and I were unable to celebrate Valentine’s Day together because he was on travel for work, he decided to make it up to me with a surprise belated Valentine dinner (since I love surprises). It was a cold Saturday evening, as we headed to dinner. Before I knew it, we were next to the Renaissance Center building walking toward the Riverwalk in Detroit. As I complained about being cold, we walked closer and closer to the water. Finally, he insisted I get my camera out and take pictures of the beautiful sunset. To be honest, I didn’t want to because that required me to pull my hands out of my pockets to find my camera and I was freezing. I did it, I got my camera and snapped some pictures. As I turned around to say “let’s go”, I found him on one knee. It didn’t even occur to me what was going on, so I immediately told him to get up. Continue reading Roxanna’s story… Continue reading
