Some Engagement photos!

I am a photographer in my free time so I wanted to see if it would be possible to take my own engagement photos. I've proven it's possible! However, not ideal so we may end up hiring someone to do some more for us!

Progress!

I realize Iíve gone a long time without an update and holy bees I have a lot to say!!

First of all, as of yesterday it IS OFFICAL, we are booked, locked in and thereís no turning back for us now!!! We got our first choice date, time, and both locations! We could NOT be happier!!!

Second, I have also booked our first choice photographer!!! Just as happy about this as I was really worried someone would out-book us! We are going with Jason Angelini www.jasonangeliniphotography.com whoís work I am just absolutely in love with! I mentioned earlier that I am into photography and it has become a nice little side business for me as Iíve done a couple weddings, and lots of families and kids and event photography! I absolutely love being creative with a camera and seeing what Iím capable of! So, that being said, photography has been a HUGE priority for me all along this planning process so far. There are a lot of photographers out there and some of which I just really donít love purely based on the work Iíve seen them produce. It was important to me to find someone who has the same vision as I have which is focusing on details, finding perfect lighting conditions, not over-editing with blurry cheap effects, keeping nice clean and crisp imagines that will stand the test of time. Jason has all of these qualities! And after speaking with him on the phone, I knew he was our photographer! He has great energy, is extremely confident in his abilities, and best of all has some great ideas which Iím REALLY excited to see come to life in our wedding! P.S. he uses Nikon cameras which makes Mark and I very happy as we are also a Nikon household. I realize that sounded totally geeky but Iím ok with that! Hahaha

Now on to the stress of the moment. My dress has been quite an issue recently. As in, I donít have one!! Iím a pretty easy girl to fit, not saying Iím skinny, but Iím pretty much average as far as sample sizes go and I really didnít expect to have a hard time in this department. The problem, Iím realizing, is that Iím EXTREMELY picky! Iíve tried on at least 60 gowns at this point and I could literally find something wrong with each of them! I was so stressed out about this after a whirlwind excursion with my future step-mother-in-law and future sister-in-law (who is also 31 weeks pregnant but was a trouper) on a busy Saturday at a local bridal shop and then (gasp!) Davidís Bridal this last weekend. I gasp because no one should EVER go to Davidís Bridal on a Saturday afternoon especially during prom season!!! Ohhh my goodness that was HORRIBLE. Anyway, I finally forced myself to sleep late Saturday after mindlessly searching online for HOURS trying to find other options, dress styles I might like etc. and woke up Sunday still worried about it! I was borderline depressed on Super bowl Sunday, no less. My poor Fiancť, who Iíve mentioned lives and breathes for sports and was SO excited and I was just a stick in the mud most of the day. Anyway, to make this story a little happier, I ended up contacting the Store Manager at the local shop (Madelineís Daughter in Portsmouth, NH-LOVE this shop!) who offered to help me in any way she could! She asked me to send her a list of styles I love and she would see if they have them and if not, she would find something similar. She pulled through and has also set me up with a different Stylist as she feels maybe that was part of why I didnít find my dress the first time. I have another appointment next week! Yay wish me luck!! I will report back after my appointment!

We have a Planner!!! And a website!

I wanted to share our excitement that we've been assigned a Planner and she seems fabulous so far! We have Amy Riendeau with her assistant, Jessica Rawlings. I just "met" them on Thursday, so 2 days ago, but Amy especially so far has been very quick to respond and even after my first email I got an out of office reply since she's attending the Bridal Showcase but she's still been emailing me FROM the showcase. THAT to me is some great service!! Love that!

On a related note, she wanted us to think about whether or not we could attend a planning session and of course we said, ummmm...yeah!!! We have a tentative date set for our planning session on Friday, June 14th! Amy is checking with the kitchen to make sure they're available for a food tasting but if that works out, we'll be there for a long weekend in June! YAY!!!

Oh, and good news! Yesterday was exactly 9 months from our wedding day!!!! I bet this time will go by sooo fast! We are going to try to relish in the excitement though.

Annnnddd...drum roll please!! (ok, that was ridiculous) WE HAVE A WEBSITE!!! Mark kinda does this stuff for a living so we're really lucky that he was able to do this for us! So, purely designed and created especially for us, our website is a work in progress, but feel free to check it out!

www.markandsaraheverafter.com

I am very proud of my future hubby for his abilities and am super happy with our lovely and, in my opinion, unique and creative site! It fits us, our wedding, and our overall vision for our theming and "brand" for our special day. Our save the dates and invites will follow along these similar lines. Exciting stuff!!

Thank you! I think he's doing a great job on it!

See next post regarding the dress! Keep in mind most places take 6 months to order it so gives you plenty of time to lose weight while you're waiting if you want to. I ordered a size that will fit me now and am doing really well with my workout routine and pretty well with my eating so hopefully I'll need to have it taken in a little once it gets here!

I have a dress!!!

Well, I've ORDERED a dress...I won't have it probably until August but I found one! I have SUCH a feeling of relief. Unfortunately my DF is very savvy and would easily see pictures if I posted them here so I won't. But I can tell you that it is amazing and literally everything I wanted and hoped for! AND it was within budget! Actually about half of what I had originally budgetted for it! Total win!!!

Now that that's done, we will need to pick an officiant. If any of you have preferences on the officiants Disney gives you, it would be much appreciated as I really don't know where to start. Please tell me the good, bad, and the ugly! I would rather know beforehand than be surprised on our wedding day!

Another exciting tidbit! We got our date for our Planning Session!!! So June 14th is the day. It will sort of be a whirlwind trip. We'll go down for a few days, basically a long weekend, and the 14th will mostly be consumed by the PS as we were able to get a food tasting too! REALLY excited for this mini-trip and getting to plan all the details!!!!
