Wedding Planning Weekend

So I am just starting to realize HOW MUCH WORK wedding planning is! But I actually kind of love it. My organization-freak side comes out and it is really a lot of fun!

On Friday night we had my mom, brother, and sister over for a little cookout. Mitch and Brian were practicing hitting golf balls in the backyard while my mom and I discussed all things wedding and Taylor fell asleep on the couch.

Saturday morning Brian, my mom, and I headed to a wedding venue to check it out and we absolutely loved it! It was gorgeous, and will be even more so in the fall! They have the weekend next fall that we want to get married open, so that is awesome. So I have pretty much spent the rest of the weekend emailing caterers, photographers, wedding coordinators, DJs, shuttle services, etc.

Excuse my ghostly white legs 

 Where cocktail hour will be.. they will have tables set up and to the right there is this pretty koi pond with a cobblestone footbridge!

Those flowers will be gone and this is where the ceremony will be! Look at that view! I just keep picturing it with our PA fall leaves! The reception will be right behind here in a huge tent, so we will have the view at all times!

We are checking out one more venue this week hopefully, but I really really love the above place and they have our weekend on hold! Oh, also this weekend I planted some pretty flowers in these planters that Brian spray painted for me. We took the dogs with us in the car to get some gas for the lawnmower and they thought they were so cool. I also made this awesomely yummy sandwich (hummus, pesto, feta, lettuce, and tomato) and watched a lot of Sister Wives.

Have a great week guys!

  1. What a gorgeous venue! I love the idea of an outdoor wedding. It is a ton of work but so fun and worth it in the end!

  2. The venue is gorgeous and it must be so exciting to be planning. Also, lets talk about those doggie butts! Is there anything cuter than dachshund booty? I think not.
