  • Wedding: September 2012

  1. When is your wedding date?   September 8, 2012, in Freehold NJ
  2. How old are you and your partner? We’ll be 31 and 33 at the time of the wedding
  3. What do you and your partner do for a living?  I do postdoctoral research in chromatin biology, he does environmental analysis for a consulting agency
  4. What’s your engagement date and story?  November 20th, 2010 – not much of a story.  We’d commissioned a local jeweler to set my grandmother’s stone in a setting we desgined – November 20 was the day the ring was ready to pick up.  We went to the store, the jeweler insisted I try it on.  I put it on my finger, we all smiled, and then I said “Welp, not taking this off ever again.”  And that was that.  We knew we wanted to get married for months already.
  5. What is your wedding’s theme/colors/style? Our theme is “wedding”, and the colors are all shades of blue.  It’ll be secular, but incorporating a few Jewish traditions (glass  breaking, etc.).  The ceremony and reception are at a restaurant/event space.
  6. How many guests are you planning for? ~150.  Just sent out the STDs!
  7. Is there anything else you want to tell us?  Nope. πŸ™‚

@ImDaCat:  LOL @ “Our theme is ‘wedding.'”

@Ocean: Such a sweet story!

@MistyLuv79:  Oooh, cake tasting is exciting!  We’ll prob have to wait for spring for ours, as it comes with the venue and they don’t do winter weddings.  Any ideas what flavors you want?

    Good idea! πŸ™‚

    1.When is your wedding date?

    We’re getting married September 22, 2012.

    2. How old are you and your partner?

    I’m 23 and he’s 34 – we’ll be 24 and 35 for the wedding. I know, I know, older man yadda yadda. πŸ˜›

    3.What do you and your partner do for a living?

    I’m a journalist and he’s a graphic designer.

    4. What’s your engagement date and story?

    We got engaged August 22 partway through the most ridiculous ‘vacation’ ever. We travelled over 10,000 km in 11 driving days, both on one Honda Goldwing motorcycle that is older than me. We got rained off the highway in Valemount B.C. and he took the opportunity to propose to me during our first sit-down meal in days which was probably a good idea because we stopped fighting after that. πŸ˜›

    5. What is your wedding’s theme/colors/style?

    We’re having an outdoor wedding and tented backyard reception. It’s going to be very DIY! Our colours are a mish-mash but the main one is yellow, with metallics, neutrals, and whatever my mom comes up with for the flowers. ‘Organized folky’ is what it’s being called so far.

    6. How many guests are you planning for?

    Fifty (49 and possibly one more) plus us.

    Hey all! I love this idea!

    1. When is your wedding date? 9.8.12
    2. How old are you and your partner?  Right now we’re both 26, and we’ll both be 27 when we marry.
    3. What do you and your partner do for a living?  We’re both mental health therapists
    4. What’s your engagement date and story?  We got engaged Sept. 17, 2011 after dating for 6.5 years!  He did a “surprise” proposal (I knew it was coming some day, just not that day) while we were hiking at our local arboretum.  It was super beautiful and special, just us and our puppy!
    5. What is your wedding’s theme/colors/style?  The theme is “Mountains to Sea” after our favorite places/where my FI’s from and we live, and a local trail that goes from the Mts to the OBX.    The colors are yellow and green with hints of wood and tin.
    6. How many guests are you planning for?  Ugh, the guest list keeps ballooning.  At first count it was 226 invited, not including a lot of our friends.  My parents keep saying most they invite won’t come but you know you can’t always trust that!
    7. Is there anything else you want to tell us?  Not that I can think of right now!

    2. How old are you and your partner? 25 & 30, but 26 & 31 at the wedding

    3. What do you and your partner do for a living? Both students, but I will have my MA before we get married, so I’ll hopefully be working a nice job when we get married.

    4. What’s your engagement date and story? I knew the proposal was coming, but I got a bit shy about it. It took him quite some convincing to get me out of the house… he proposed on a late afternoon walk in the woods.

    5. What is your wedding’s theme/colors/style? No theme. The colors, as far as we can/want to coordinate them, are robin’s egg & grey. Classic wedding in a slightly rustic setting.
