He Proposed...

So now I'll be Mrs. Jones ;)

Bridget Jones, to be exact. (Yes, like the movie...)

My wonderful boyfriend fiancé, Matt, presented me with this beauty about 2 weeks ago, of course I said yes!

And now I'm planning an outdoor DIY wedding at sunset on Friday, June 1, 2012. Less than a year away. I think I may be a little crazy...

I want to keep this blog to record every step of the wedding, so I can't forget anything!And to stay organized through the planning process.

Ok, details! So far we have decided on:
  • Ceremony Date/Time: Friday, June 1, 2012 at 5:30PM
  • Approx. 50-70 guests
  • Venue for ceremony and reception: Matt's Family's farm where he lives and we will be living shortly
  • Wedding Party: MOH- my sister, Erin. Best Man- Matt's brother, Brian. Flower Girl- Matt's niece, Gracie. Ring Bearer- my son, Riley.
  • Photographer: Natalie Franke Photography
  • Caterer: Punk's Backyard Grill (our most favorite restaurant!)
  • Officiant: We are pretty positive we will be going with Rev. Tracey Moe
My plan is to get the big stuff out of the way first (photographer, caterer, officiant, etc.) before the school/birthday/holiday season starts for both mine and Matt's families. Then we can work out the fine details.

Upcoming stuff:
I need to send the contract and deposit to the photographer.
Sunday 7/10/11 J Crew Georgetown to try on both bride and bridesmaid dresses with my mom and Erin.
Saturday 8/13/11 Meeting with Sheila, one of the owners of Punk's, to discuss catering menu

Dress shopping in DC this weekend- so excited! :D
