- Wedding: July 2015
I’m new to Weddingbee – just joined after a good friend recommended the site as a great place for tips and advice and mentioned that everyone here is pretty nice.
My FH and I got engaged at the beginning of summer (Memorial Day weekend, at Lake Shasta in California) and have been enjoying starting to look at venues/pulling inspirational ideas. We aren’t planning on getting married until Summer 2015, as I’m currently working full time, working through my MBA program, and we’re trying to buy a house over the next year. Anyway, I felt that attempting to really get into the details of planning a wedding on top of it all just wouldn’t allow me to do such an occasion justice. A lot going on! Fortunately, I have lots of time and can take it, well, one step at a time.
I’m excited though, as I brainstorm and work through some of these ideas, to have a good community to share them with and bounce thoughts off of. We’re planning on getting married in the Lake Tahoe area in California/Nevada (we’re from the San Francisco Bay Area) and I’m planning on incorporating both of our hobbies (horseback riding and fishing) in subtle and classy ways (so if you have any ideas, let me know!).
For fun, I’ve attached some pictures
Our engagement 🙂 I’m a lucky gal!
And the lovely ring he picked out for me (my dream ring, 1.5 carat modeled after Tiffany’s 6 prong solitaire setting)
