  • Wedding: November 2012

Town/State of Wedding Location: New Orleans, LA

Wedding Date: 11/3/12

Colors/Theme: Uh…New Orleans!! I’m trying to put the city and the beauty of my venues at the forefront rather than any color scheme, etc. Not really planning on adding decor at all because my venues are beautiful as they are.

Venue: Ceremony at an old French Quarter mansion (in the gardens); reception at an old French Quarter restaurant

Describe the wedding in one sentence or less: Colorful and fun (I hope)

Favorite part of planning: Picking out silly props for the photo booth! (I’m still a kid at heart)

Most-anticipated part of the day: Hmm…everything! (Once things get underway and I’ve had a drink of something to take the edge off my nerves)

Why November: Weather! (Have you ever been to New Orleans in the summer??) And fall is my favorite season.

One thing you aren’t looking forward to: Hair and makeup. I’m a no-makeup, wash-and-wear kind of gal. I want to look polished enough so that I look good in photos but I know I’ll feel weird and self-conscious with all that…stuff on my face, and I’m worried about finding the right hair and makeup people who will “get” me, especially since I’m planning from out of state.

Why November: although we originally wanted October because it is the same month as when we began dating, November is special to us too.  We had met online, and fell in love before physically meeting face to face.  He was on a deployment in Iraq when we me. After three months of talking, he was on his way home to meet me! I picked him up from the airport on nov 5th 2008 for his 2 week leave.   On nov 5th 2011! He asked me to marry him! And 12 month and 6 days later I will be his wife!!! (both of ourbirthdays are on dec 6th, and it was completely coincidental)

Wedding Date: 11/10/12
Colors/Theme: rich jewel tones, warm colors
Venue: The Commander’s Mansion
Describe the wedding in one sentence or less: Whimsical, slightly Steampunk cocktail party
Favorite part of planning: Getting to plan the most amazing party with my fiance πŸ™‚
Most-anticipated part of the day: finally marrying my love (we’ll have been together 8 years at that point), seeing everyone’s reaction to our vision

Why november: We are both independent designers, and most of the year we are selling at different artist markets. We really only have either November or March free and in New England, it’s not uncommon for us to get a blizzard in March. Even if it doesn’t snow, everything is usually pretty dirty and gray from winter, so we went with November!

One thing you aren’t looking forward to: Dress shopping (I’m so nervous and self concious!) and dealing with my Mom, she gets really pushy and defensive about her ideas and sometimes just doesn’t know when to give the nagging/guilt trips a rest.
