    Hello Everyone!

    It's nearly two months until our wedding and so I thought I should put my PJ up! I know this board really helped me, so I hope that I can help someone else in doing this.

    :cloud9: :cloud9: :cloud9:

    The Cast


    Bride ~ Sara-Jayne, Primary School Teacher
    Groom ~ Gavin, Software Engineer

    We're both from the UK and attended our planning session in February of this year. We have 30 guests for the wedding.


    :lovestruc :lovestruc :lovestruc


    Our Sales Manager is Bill Barchik. Bill is fantastic. I can't say enough good things about him! He works tirelessly on anything I need help with.

    Our Wedding Planner is Diane Bowen. We love Diane. She has been such a comfort and a huge help to me. Whatever I ask, she has a solution and gets things sorted without any hassle for me. I couldn't ask for more.

    Our Floral contact is Laura Kidd. She's fabulous. She has such exciting ideas and most importantly, she's listened to what we want. Really listened. I can't wait to see what my flowers look like on the day!

    ....and so I'll start at the very beginning.....!

    Gavin and I will leave the UK on July 31st after putting our furkids (Siberian Huskies) into their Luxury Dog Resort and after checking our Princess (Chameleon) and the Mice into their holiday homes.

    We're staying one night at a Yotel :-)banana:) because we've always wondered about them. The Yotel is near Heathrow Airport in London which is where we fly from very early in the morning.

    I should have packed much more luggage than this....but here is some of my Mickey luggage anyway!

    We land at Orlando International Airport after a brief stop and change of aircraft at Washington Dulles, nd we should be collected by Mickey's Magical Express when we reach Florida!

    On rehearsal day, both Gavin and I will wake up together in the Yacht Club. Our family will check in today. Gavin and I bought them the rooms for the night as gifts, so that we're all in the same place on the morning of the wedding!:goodvibes

    Woo hoo! So Glad to see you around!!


    Ohhhh, a Tiffany band! We just picked up our bands from Tiffany last weekend!!! I got the one with pave diamonds all the way around the band and it is so sparkly. It is called the Novo and you would probably LOVE it (Knowing your obsession for sparkly things!)
