Real STDs

A few weeks ago, I talked about Save the Date magnets. Since some of our guests are aware of my blog, I didn’t reveal what ours specifically looked like. Now that they’ve been delivered, I can share with you without spoiling the surprise. This is a copy of the proof we received via email. Initially, we didn’t order a proof (yes, it was risky, but we proofread and proofread and proofread again before submitting our order). Because of the size of the artwork, they had to rearrange the line breaks, and sent us a proof -free of charge- before printing them. So, without further ado, our STD:

E Photos take 2

Since the weather didn’t exactly cooperate with us last time we met with our photographer for engagement photos, we met with her again on Wednesday. This time, we met in the morning and were able to get in a solid two hours of time with her. We met at St Catherine’s again to take a few more photos since we loved the way the stone church looked. Did I mention we arranged to meet at 8am? Yes sir, that’s mighty early. When you factor in our drive time (close to 2 hours), and it was a very long morning for us!

The second time around, both of us were more relaxed in front of the camera. I can’t tell you how happy I am that we decided to do a “take two” with Maureen. Not only was the weather beautiful, but we had so much fun! We jumped across creeks (okay, so it was more of a ditch) and climbed over barbed wire fences and up rocks. . . did I mention I was wearing a skirt? And yes, it was all in pursuit of a great photo which will be matted and used as a “guest book” at our reception.

Maureen told us at the end of the day that it would take a week or two for her to edit the photos and post them to an online gallery. . . I can’t wait!

E Photos

Yesterday, Jakob and I had our engagement photo shoot with Maureen Sullivan of Sullivan Photography. We met in Lyons, and at out first location, an autumn storm moved in, raining us out. We were able to get a few shots in before driving to our second location. Luckily, the weather in Colorado is ever changing – rainstorms blow in quickly, and just as quickly out. Our second location was St Catherine’s church near Estes Park. It’s this great old stone church with Mt. Meeker in the background. For photos of the church, click here. I’m glad we decided to keep going, since at our third and final location (for the day) we got some great shots with the most incredible rainbow in the background.

Maureen is incredible – she’s so full of life and so much fun to be around. She made our engagement shoot a lot of fun, and had some great locations chosen. She even offered to finish the shoot next week since the weather wasn’t cooperating for much of it. Naturally, I took her up on her offer, so we have another meeting with her this Wednesday at 8 am. Since we have appointments at 11am and 1pm in Estes, we’re meeting Maureen at St. Catherine’s and will make a day of it. As soon as we have the photos back, I’ll share them with you!

The Opposites Game

We’ve finally decided on a baker. In my last post, I told you a little about Colorado Rose Cake Company, our vendor of choice. I love that their cakes are four layers of cake with three layers of filling. That definitely makes their cakes stand out among the competition. The best part is we didn’t have to make all the decisions about what we wanted for our wedding cake that day. it’s a good thing, because I don’t think I could have! Going into our meeting, I planned on an ivory cake (to match my dress) with lavender ribbon (to match my bridesmaids’ dresses). I pictured something like this (without the weird heart topper):

I heart cake

This morning, through a fortuitous chain of events, Jakob & I were able to schedule a cake tasting. In case you’re counting – yes, this is number 4. This one was with Colorado Rose Cake Company in Berthoud, Colorado. If you’re planning a wedding in along the front range, this place is definitely worth a visit.

Their cakes consist of four layers of cake with three layers of filling. For information on cake. filling, and icing flavors offered, check out their Information page.

A couple of months ago, my MOH and I went dress shopping for bridesmaids dresses. Because of my great experience at Pearls Place when I went shopping for my wedding dress, we went there and let Lisa work her magic. She already knew what my dress looked like, so we just asked her to pick out some dresses that were complimentary. We narrowed our choices down to two.

STD Fever

We have STDs! (Save the Dates, that is.) The ever-so-wonderful FedEx man delivered them early yesterday morning while I was at my management meeting. Jakob was just opening them when I got home. Normally, I would be putting a photo of what they look like right here:

But since today I sent out a mass email letting friends & family know about the existence of this blog, I will not be posting pictures of them. I want everyone to see them for the first time when they open the envelope. Instead, I will tell you we ordered them from Favors You Keep and show you some other designs we considered before deciding on the one I’m so happy about.
