BEAUTIFUL pictures.  Makes me want to run off to Canada for a few weeks.  You guys look great and I’m sure it’s one of those stories the grandchildren will hear for generations.  Congrats.

Love the Financial Report… I am sure this kind of stuff is helpful to many Bees

I too am tracking on Excel… haven’t got a clue though how to do a Pie Chart… need to figure this out for when I do my own Recaps

Mr TTR and I have come to the realization that an Elopement Wedding isn’t much cheaper than a”traditional” Family Wedding at home…  just that one’s priorities / spending areas tend to differ.

Mr TTR and I have discovered that the BULK of our Expenses will be our Rings… E-Ring & W-Bands (pretty normal for many couples) and the BIG @SS Honeymoon that we have planned that ties in with our Elopement

No complaints from me though…

Because really at the end of the day, when all is said & done it is the Photos & Memories one is left with.  Food gets ate, Flowers wilt & die, and Decorations disappear.

IMO one’s Honeymoon is the beginning of life together, and for us that is super-important.

Ok. So I am a total finances freak and I absolutely love the game plan and then the actual figures. I have to see everything out on paper and am a huge planner. I love the pics of you and your hubby. Looks and sounds like you guys had a fabulous time.
