  • Wedding: August 2009

1) When was/is your wedding day? 

August 22, 2009 (yeah, I’m still on here :-P)

2) What day of the week was/is it? 

Saturday

3) Did/Will you get married in a church? 

Yup. We planned to get married outdoors at a park but the weather was really iffy the day of the wedding (though it didn’t end up raining, it looked like it all day) so we went ahead with our home church.

[attachment=1689728,209448]

4) How many in your wedding party?

11 – four bridesmaids, four groomsmen, two flower girls, and one ringbearer

[attachment=1689728,209449]

5) Where was/is your reception? 

A church gym near our house

6) How many guests were/are invited to your wedding?

Um, I’m trying to remember….150ish?

7) How long did/will you wait to tie the knot after your proposal?

We were engaged March 7, 2009, and married August 22, that same year, so 5 1/2 months

8) Did/Will you have a DJ or a band?

No. We planned to have an ipod, but kind of forgot in all the last minute details πŸ˜›

9) Did/Will your father walk you down the aisle?

Yes, both him and my mom did.

[attachment=1689728,209450]

10) What were/are your wedding colors?

Brown and yellow (sunflowers specifically) with a bit of red

11) What was your total wedding budget? Did you stick to it?

$5000, and we made it at $2936 (which makes me wish we’d gone ahead and splurged on a couple things that we bypassed because of cost :-P)

12) Did/Are you write(ing) your own vows? 

Yes, and I’m so glad we did.

13) Did/Will you have a Bridal Shower?

Yeah. Two, actually, because the ladies from my small group at church threw me one, too. Plus a “personal shower” (where I got all sorts of fun, um, lacy things to wear)

14) What type of limo did/will you get

We didn’t. We borrowed a friend’s car.

 15) Where did/will you go for your Bachelorette Party?

Olive Garden, then back to a friend’s house for a movie night (I wasn’t into the traditional bachelorette party)

16) What type of wedding gown and tux did/will you two wear?

I wore a lace gown bought off the weddingbee classifieds.

My husband wore a tux he had from when he sang in choir at school (which meant free!)

17) How was the weather?

Eh, pretty ick :-P. It didn’t rain, but it was chilly (for August) and looked like rain all day. We still got outside pictures, though, which I was glad of.

18) Where did/are you go(ing) on your Honeymoon?

We went to Hocking Hills, Ohio (yup, we honeymooned in Ohio!). It was beautiful — hills, woods, trails, caves, waterfalls — and we had our own cabin on several secluded acres. It was perfect.

[attachment=1689728,209451]

19) If married, what was your favorite part of your wedding day? If engaged, what is your favorite element of your big day? 

I love taking pictures with my soon-to-be husband right before the wedding. We went to the park where we were going to get married and just spent time walking around, holding hands and being lovey while our photographer took pictures. It helped relieve any stress from the day and was a sweet time together.

[attachment=1689728,209453]

I also loved our ceremony. We wrote the entire ceremony together and it celebrated so many things that were important to us and things we hoped for in our marriage.

20) If married, what’s the funniest thing you remember from the day? If engaged, what’s your favorite part of the engagement experience?

I remember being at the park taking pictures before the ceremony and the mom of my flower girls calling because she’d arrived there instead of at the church. Our photographer got a picture of me, dressed in my bridal finery and talking on my cell phone with a worried look on my face.

[attachment=1689728,209452]

21) How long have you been married? If not yet married, how long will you have been together on your wedding day?

Two years, five months :-).

  • Wedding: October 2010

1) When was/is your wedding day? October 10th, 2010

 

2) What day of the week was/is it?  Sunday

 

3) Did/Will you get married in a church? Sort of. It was at my in-law’s church, but it was outside on a flat stone labyrinth. 

 

4) How many in your wedding party? 3 bridesmaids, 3 groomsmen and 1 flowergirl.

 

5) Where was/is your reception? Inside the sanctuary of the church. It’s a pretty casual unitarian church, and they set up folding chairs for their services, so it was very easy to bring in tables and move things around. Big windows and wood floors, though. Very open and airy. 

6) How many guests were/are invited to your wedding? Around 50.

7) How long did/will you wait to tie the knot after your proposal? Around 50.

8) Did/Will you have a DJ or a band? iPod and a close friend on a guitar.

9) Did/Will your father walk you down the aisle? Yes, although I wasn’t sure he was coming until about 2 weeks before, so my mother was prepared to do it if he didn’t come. 

10) What were/are your wedding colors? Brown, red and orange. Pretty typical fall, but I didn’t have a lot of time to plan. 

11) What was your total wedding budget? Did you stick to it? 5k; we came in just under, and had a lot of “friendors” who did things for free…cupcakes as a wedding gift, etc.

12) Did/Are you write(ing) your own vows? Yes. I didn’t want to but Darling Husband really did, so I caved. I’m so glad we did. We also had the more traditional vows in the ceremony. Our minister told the guests we “wanted to take a few moments to say personal vows to each other”.

13) Did/Will you have a Bridal Shower? No.

14) What type of limo did/will you get? None, I drove in with my Maid/Matron of Honor and my husband and I left in our own car.  

 15) Where did/will you go for your Bachelorette Party? We went to a Cuban restaurant that had a never-ending pitcher of sangria (or so it seemed to me), then went to a gay piano bar. I had a blast.

16) What type of wedding gown and tux did/will you two wear? I had a strapless lace dress (insisted going in I wanted straps, but there ya go) with pearls sewn in to match my engagement ring. He had a standard tux, with a long tie as opposed to a bow-tie.

17) How was the weather? It was perfect. It was 70 and sunny, with a very light breeze. Not  a cloud in the sky (which I am so thankful for, since we had a rain-back up but really wanted an outdoor ceremony). Weather.com described the day as “delightful”. 

18) Where did/are you go(ing) on your Honeymoon? We stayed at a lodge in the Adirondacks. 

19) If married, what was your favorite part of your wedding day? If engaged, what is your favorite element of your big day? Well my favorite part was when we kissed, and I realized somewhere that I wasn’t standing on my tiptoes like I usually do when we kiss (as he’s almost a foot taller than me), and it didn’t seem right, so I made a conscious move to stand on my tiptoes. My second favorite part was seeing my niece/flowergirl launch herself into DH’s arms after the ceremony (because I love how much they love each other).

20) If married, whats the funniest thing you remember from the day? If engaged, whats your favorite part of the engagement experience? When Darling Husband and I smashed cupcakes into the faces of the best man/MOH (as opposed to each others’).

21) How long will you have been together on your wedding day? 4 years, 3 days.

13) Did/Will you have a Bridal Shower? Nope!  We are currently living with my folks and have no storage space.  I felt because of that, having a bridal shower would be just basically wrong since I’d be returning everything for cash.

 

14) What type of limo did/will you get? None. We all drove our own cars.

 

 15) Where did/will you go for your Bachelorette Party? I didn’t have one.  Truth be told, I just wasn’t interested in having one.  πŸ˜›

 The views are wonderful...so clear .Can hear Wnery Maria Yaber's music /street - Temecula, California Vacation Home Near Fishing and Hiking

 

 

 

19) If married, what was your favorite part of your wedding day? If engaged, what is your favorite element of your big day?  For the civil ceremony it was the surprise of how pretty the courthouse was and that they made the ceremony so much more then we expected!  For the wedding, it was having all of our friends and family there.  To a much lesser extent, it was seeing all my hard work in the form of DIY’s come together.  But most of all for all of it, it was marrying my best friend!   πŸ™‚

 

 

 

20) If married, whats the funniest thing you remember from the day? If engaged, whats your favorite part of the engagement experience? Funniest thing?  hmmm… so many!  πŸ˜€  Anton and I tripping over each other during our first dance (not really tripping so much as feeling very awkward because neither of us dances.  lol)  and Anton pretending to hog the cake.
