Wedding Wednesday...Small Things, Big Things

Wednesday, February 9, 2011

Before I say anything else, I have to have a little show and tell... our engagement pictures were featured on another wedding blog recently and I was beaming so I wanted to share--hehe!
Check out Pretty Little Weddings' highlight of our photoshoot here. {P.S. do you not love the way Jillian writes? So eloquent and sophisticated--I can only dream}

OK back to the issue at hand, right? Planning, planning, and more planning--122 days to go.
Yesterday afternoon, I met with the Catering Manager from Chef's Market and we finalized everything food and food decor/design/set-up for the reception... we were so on the same page it was a tad bit freaky, but Jessica totally understands what we're wanting--sophisticated southern cuisine and I know our guests are going to love!
Check out some of Chef's awe-dropping food scapes:

In other news, we all know that Valentine's Day is next Monday, right? Well, my day of love will come just one day early on Sunday because our engagement announcement will be printed in the local Nashville newspaper--The Tennessean! Mom has been working on this item for weeks and I can't wait to see the finished product...I promise to share the link and take a picture, too--eeek with excitement!

And to make my week purely happy happy joy joy, as of last night, I sent the final approval and thumbs up for our custom wedding invitation suite over to Joni at Chocolate Butterbean... cannot wait to see these lovelies printed with our actual names written on them--a bit surreal I do declare. They are so reminiscent of our save-the-date design which makes my heart smile, too.

So that's all for now... on this weekend's agenda is to shop for shower dresses, hopefully purchase some of the bridesmaids and other wedding party gifts, order our guest book, and confirm a meeting with our florist for March to finalize all out bouquets, centerpieces, and ceremony flowers--yay!!
