We’re headed off to Key West from July 29 to August 3 and will be getting married with our toes in the sand on July 31~at sunset nontheless!
I absolutely adore Nika Stroble, of Soiree Key West, who has gone way out of her way to make sure our intimate (just FI, myself and my son although FI’s parents are possibly flying in for it) wedding is “my style” and she’s my feet on the ground in KW! Great planner btw. After we’re married, we’ll go to a private dinner and then enjoy our “familymoon”! Our cake will be made there by Cakes by Karol btw.
After lounging around and having fun, we’ll fly back to ATL to greet family and friends who are flying and driving in town, as well as local friends for our reception,which will be Friday Aug. 6, at Wolf Mountain Vineyard in Dahlonega. It’s one of the two favorite places T and I love to have brunch or visit for special occasions and their food is as equally amazing as the views. Even a vintnor (sp?) will be there on hand to answer questions about their wine selections!
So that’s the plan, and we’re stickin’ to it!

Tonight I sent off the final draft on our invites, created by Sarah of Belletristics (lovin’ that there’s a belle in her companyname) and we’ll be getting the suite finished soon!
The bright green, hot pink and navy colorscheme is still a go!
Am also solidifying by friday the entertainers. Looks like my friends’ band might do the touch! Having to also get w/the cake vendors from the winery (their recommended list) tomorrow too.
Who says you can’t plan a wedding in a month and a half?

Awww. So glad I share the date with your parents CorgiTales! Thanks everybody!
Yes, we’re using same colorscheme and today I got the first proof from the invitation suite. Next week becomes invitation processing plant here.
I had to get everything done so quickly that it is still making my head swim. But it’s still coming along.
Off to Paper source this afternoon to get paper. For invites! Anyhow, have a great 4th ya’ll!
Still wrestling with the reception photographer. yuck. Everything else going well. That and the cake baker for entertainment.

Tons of pics here! I’ve also got a few diy projects to finish creating now…finishing my mossy letters and also an ampersand with two ribbons attached to it to tie to our chairs at the reception, also some oot bags and the favors!
Of course, there is the biiig project now, which is the invites going out! I know I might have eluded tradition and the correct timeframe with which to send them out, but this was a serious situation and our guests understand. 🙂 I’ll show them off in a bit..they’re amazing! Got the first draft of proofs today and went to paper source and got the papers for the printing and will send them to a local printer to have them professionally cut after we print them! Even the bellybands will be amazing and also the wraparound labels too! I’m going to use a xyron to affix the wraparound labels…
I got a killer rate at two local hotels for the guests as well. Really excited about it coming together, but also very very busy right now too.
