Our wedding – the dinner

August 8, 2006 * 10 Comments

I would be completely remiss if I didn’t mention our amazing caterer from the wedding! Amanda and her crew from Amanda Smith, Inc did just an amazing job with our wedding. Everything from her staff, to the table settings, the planning, the food . . right down to the cake – they were simply amazing

Our Wedding – the romance collection

July 25, 2006 * 11 Comments

This is what we refer to as our ‘romance collection’ – – from our wedding.

Sick of wedding and honeymoon pictures yet? Too bad ha! I have more coming up — featuring the goofy collection, the friends collection (featuring the lovely Leanne), and a few others.

Bonaire – Above The Sea

July 25, 2006 * 5 Comments

Here are other pictures from our Honeymoon in Bonaire – these pictures were taken above the sea, rather than below it! We arrived on 7/25 at the Flamingo Airport in Bonaire. It’s pink! Lots more pictures below the link – – there’s lots of them, so be patient, it may take a moment to load them all! Is this a view or is this a view? Well.. it’s a view, of course! From our room – – the sea is no more than 4 feet away from our balconey. Gorgeous! After a long day of diving the Bari Reef in […]

7 Hours In Aruba

July 16, 2006 * 11 Comments

We honeymooned from 6/25 – 7/7 in Bonaire, South America.. it’s a small island that is part of the Dutch Antilles. (Part of the “ABC” islands: Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao). It was really a beautiful trip. We started out in Newark and flew direct to Aruba, where we had a 7 hour layover. In those 7 hours, we rented a car and drove around the little island of Aruba (it took us all of 20 minutes to make a round trip, I swear) and found a very nice (read: air conditioned) place to stop and lunch. (note: we didn’t find […]

Wedding Photos

July 16, 2006 * 9 Comments

I was thrilled to receive the official wedding pictures from our photographer today in the mail! FINALLY, a month after the wedding, we were able to sit back and enjoy the DVD that he sent of almost 700 pictures from our wedding. Don’t worry! I won’t share all 700 of them here with you and bore you with wedding pictures from now until the end of the year (whew, right?) – but I do have a few that are my favs that I want to post here, eventually. I am going to be putting together a wedding album online for […]

I Barely Even Noticed The Rain

July 13, 2006 * 21 Comments

The day couldn’t have been more perfect. After the ceremony, someone mentioned the rain. I barely noticed. . . The most perfect day in my life. Hands down. (These photos came from one of the several disposable cameras that our guests were using to take photos. I haven’t received the official photography from our photographer, yet – – but will share a photo album when I do.) Normal posting may resume here one of these days. We’re still trying to reorganize life over here after being gone for almost an entire month of celebrations and travel.

Taking The Plunge

June 16, 2006 * 20 Comments

This is it. My last post as a single woman. We’re leaving early, early tomorrow for New York and a week from Saturday – – I’ll officially be a Mrs. Freaky – but cool. The last 6 years I’ve known Chris have been the happiest years in my entire adult life. With him, I am happy, secure and settled. I cannot (and do not want to) imagine my life without him right by my side. He is my best friend, as well as my lover – that is a combination you just can’t beat. He is SO sexy, handsome and […]

Losing My Mind

June 14, 2006 * 3 Comments

Why didn’t anyone advise me to elope? Let me just say – I could NEVER be a wedding planner (ala’ J-Lo). All the nit picky little details have my brain spinning! We’re leaving for NY in two days. Pulling together a wedding in New York from Wisconsin is no small feat, let me just say. I wouldn’t recommend it for anyone! However, considering that all the plans are set and done – – all those nit picky little details have been attended to and everyone and everything is in place for this to happen – I’m really excited and looking […]

Home Stretch

June 9, 2006 * 6 Comments

I have a week to go before we leave for NY – then a week after that.. the wedding! I’m sure my blogging will get back to normal (whatever normal is) after I return from the honeymoon – – I’m thinking, breathing, eating, sleeping wedding plans these days.. I’m sure I sound like a broken record! Just got off the phone with my future mother-in-law. My dress is done. Done! Done! Done! I can’t wait to see it. She says it’s beautiful – which I’m absolutely sure that it is. It’s waiting for my final fitting which will be done […]
