Our Laguna Beach Wedding – Only 10 months left!

I got a text from a close friend last night and it said “I’m not trying to scare you guys but you’re getting married this year!…” Reality just dropped like an anvil. It is this year. Charlie and I decided we NEED to take it one step at a time.

Step 1: Finalize ceremony location. CHECK.
Charlie and I went to go look at a beautiful park before the end of 2010 at Dana Point where we have decided to hold our ceremony: Heritage Park. On a beautiful hill overlooking the ocean, I can’t help but feel free, with the Lord, and at peace in that beautiful place.

Step 2: Officially book our photographer. CHECK
We’ve known and worked with Ja Tecson in the past and we think he’s an amazing photographer. He has an keen eye, great composition, and he’s a natural. We finally signed our contract and deposit and will be working with him for our wedding and lifestyle shoot. Charlie and I are SO excited for this!

Step 3: Re-organize to do lists and move wedding binder onto iPad (more on this later).

So here is what is on the rest of our January to do list.

  • Research party favors
  • Purchase gifts for wedding attendants
  • Assemble Save the Date Cards
  • Update wedding website
  • Research wedding gowns
  • Food tasting with [seven-degrees]

2011 is here! Let’s start planning!

    [...] For the record, I have not done this much wedding planning since we’ve been engaged. Let’s just say as a Bride, I would make any wedding planner pull their hair out. I’m indecisive, I always look for others reinforcing approval, I love all different styles of design so I tend to “love” everything, and I lag…yes LAAAGGGGG! But HEY! At least I’m gaining some momentum now. :D I actually got things done on my January to do list. [...]
