Firstly, so happy to read an update! I know you have a ton going on so don't worry about it

Secondly, congrats on closing on your house and moving!! That's so exciting

And finally, your dress is so pretty and you look beautiful in it! On a side note, I think pre-ceremony pics are not only a great idea because of the heat, but have you ever taken early morning pics at Wilderness Lodge?! They come out amazing! Are y'all doing a first look?

Just read your whole PJ in one sitting. Never mind all the work I haven't gotten finished this evening!!

LOVE LOVE LOVE your story so far...I loved the proposal story and the rings are beautiful!

The grandbaby is GORGEOUS and I loved your four parks in one day adventure!

Your dress is really lovely on you and perfect with the jewelry you got. I've never been to VWL, we own at BLT and mainly have stayed there and at OKW...but VWL is definitely on my wish list for a trip soon!

Can't wait to hear more about your plans as you go forward.

Have a great day!
Brooke

So exciting!
Thanks, Muushka! We're laying even odds that the wedding will happen before the kitchen remodel at this point.

Well, since our last posts, we lost internet and phone Sunday night and just got them back late this afternoon. It was mostly due to the move, but I waited three days for a tech to show up meaning I lost precious time I could be doing other things. . .like moving! As I have no idea what a "first look" is, I'll leave that up to luv.

We are tickled you've enjoyed your read thus far, and we hope to have more cool stories and pics and revelations coming soon. We may be imperfect people, but we're perfectly suited for each other; hopefully, that comes through in our PJ. As you undoubtedly read the comments above, I won't repeat them. Did I mention I waited three days to be seen by a tech for merely moving service from one house to another just three blocks away? I did? Oops.

So, we're back from our trip to Alaska which is why we were absent on here for so long. . .well, that and because we were moving into the house we just bought. We had a lot going on for awhile! But, we're back and we'll provide wedding updates henceforth and forthwith. To keep on topic, however, let me just add that when we came back from Alaska and all the wonderful seafood we consumed, luv wanted to try on her dress to make sure it still fit--it did, beautifully. Only 10+ months to go. . .

I know I haven't updated in forever, but as P mentioned, we've been a bit busy! On the wedding front, we decided I needed a second band for a more finished look (plus, who doesn't like more bling right?) so we ordered that from Jared's yesterday.

We're having a planning trip in early November so we've been busy, well, planning for that. So look for a super detailed update then, particularly for anyone interested in a Sunrise Terrace ceremony.

Also, I've been struggling to find super cute white dresses. I found several Lilly Pulitzer ones, but either I'm not the size I thought I was or they run small. Really small. It's sooooo frustrating. I did order one from Alfred Angelo back in July but it won't be in until the end of this month. I guess I'll put that on the backburner til next spring.

Oh! And. I don't think I said, but we've decided that since we can't have a MK photoshoot during our wedding week we're going to have a shoot with Randy Chapman the day after the wedding instead. Deposit has been paid!!

You and the frog in your pocket? It was inevitable, I suppose. . .

I just read through the entire PJ and I love your story, the engagement, the rings and all of your plans so far. Your dress is beautiful, as well as the ceremony location. We initially looked into this one but being that our guest list exploded it wasnt an option anymore lol
We are getting married on the same day, just different locations (I'm doing mine at the Swan and Dolphin).
I can't wait to read more!
Happy planning!

Mid week I got a call from the bridal salon that my cute little white Alfred Angelo dress is in! That's about 4 weeks sooner than I expected! I immediately made an apt for a fitting, which would have been yesterday. But. HAD to cancel.

Why? Because the very next day P got a call from Jared's!! My second band was in!!! WAY earlier than expected. It was a no brainer. Reschedule dress fitting in favor of picking up that little beauty!!

Here's how they all look together (and yes, I know EXACTLY how well loved (read spoiled, lolol) I am!!!





Also, I don't think I'll be able to get back to the bridal salon until early October at this point, though, since I'll be headed down to DW at the end of this month for a F&W girl's weekend. Very excited!! Plus, we really need the next couple of weekends to (cross your fingers for us) finish up the house so we're not living in renovation purgatory any longer. Only one more coat of paint to go! The kitchen cabinets are in, the granite guy comes tomorrow to make a template and the appliances come Tuesday!

We no longer have to squint to see the light at the end of the tunnel, lolol!!!!

That is some SERIOUS bling! Are you wearing it now or do you have to wait for the wedding? Congratulations on your happiness.
