  • Wedding: June 2012

Wedding Date: June 30, 2012

Engagement Length: 9 months

Colors: Red and yellow

Theme: “East meets Barn.”  We’ll be at a farmhouse and hold the reception in a barn, but are using Asian-style decor elements like paper lanterns and parasols.

Wedding Party(#s): 1 Maid/Matron of Honor, 1 Bridesmaid or Best Man, 1 Best Man, 1 Groomsmen, 1 officient, 2 readers, 1 gospel performer (like a reader, but its memorized and he’s very captivating when he does it; he’s also a priest and is our officient’s husband)

Ceremony (where, time): Farmhouse in Maine, 4pm (hopefully outside)

Reception (where, time):  same place, right after (cocktail hour outside, reception in the barn)

Honeymoon Location: 2 week trip- fly into Barcelona, fly out of Nice.  Nothing else planned as that’s not till Sept.  We’ll do a mellow mini-moon in Maine the week after the wedding.

Flowers: Red and yellow rose (and some other orangey shades so its not a stark contrast between the red and yellow)

First Dance Song: Let Me Die in Your Arms- Anthony Da Costa.  It’s a song by a local singer/songwriter.  It happened to be playing on my ipod when we first said I love you, and Fiance had him serenade us with the song when he proposed.

Centerpieces: Moroccan style lanterns with yellow/amber glass, small vase of flowers.

Food/Menu: Oregano/lemon chicken, salmon, and gnocchi, served family style with various seasonal sides.

Cake Flavour: Probably chocolate with chocolate genache and raspberry filling(though I come up with other ideas for other layers, but then the problem is that I’ll want to try one of each of each flavor!).  We’ll also have a dessert buffet.

Favours: Homemade (by us) lighthouse salt dough Christmas ornaments (lighthouses are common in both of our home states), plus the out of towners will have a welcome bag with some treats from both of our home states.

DJ/Band/Ipod: Two violinists and singer (who is a good friend) at the ceremony/cocktail, DJ for the reception (and the singer will also do a song at the reception).

Bachelorrete (when/what): June 16.  My Bridesmaid or Best Man and I will start the day at the spa, and then we’ll go to a Brooklyn wine bar for wine tasting and dinner with the girls.
