How I do a wedding...

Sooo my friend suggested I blog about the wedding plans. Soo here is a quick run down!

We are getting married on 8/8/2010
We chose that date because it's absolutely perfect! I had posted earlier about the meaning of the number 8, it is all about eternity, never ending, abundance. The endless loops signify an infinite flow of....and you fill in the blank! And since it's double it's even more powerful!

The wedding ceremony and reception will be on this:
When someone suggested a yacht I just laughed but when I looked into it, it had all of my requirements. Which were, I didn't want to do anything. I basically wanted to hire a wedding planner/coordinator without hiring them...and that's exactly what they did for me! EVERYTHING is included!! Well, almost everything...

We have invited a small group of our closest friends and family will be sailing around the San Diego Harbor from 12-4. Afternoon wedding, short, sweet, and absolutely perfect!
The sail will include hors d'oeuvres and champagne, followed by the ceremony on the bow. They will then seat us for lunch and then we will cut the cake and have an afternoon dance party!
Doesn't it sound charming?

The beautiful cake I've chosen:

I copied it from a friend's wedding. We won't be having the top tier, and ours will have pink roses and calla lilies on the top and side.
I'm still on the hunt for the perfect ribbon.
The bottom tier will be carrot cake with cream cheese filling
The top tear will be a soft, spongy white cake with raspberry filling.
Mmmm mmm!

Speaking of Roses. We will have the Armageddon rose:
they are kind of a coral color.
and combined with mini calla lilies.

I don't want to give away the my whole wedding dress ensemble so I won't be included a pic of me IN it...but here are the details.

I'll be wearing this:

After the ceremony I'll probably take the veil off and put a cute pink flower in my hair...we'll see.

Some of these:
and this:

And these:

Well I'll be wearing the front ones. but the back ones are equally amazing!

Ben will be wearing a dark brown 3 piece suit
(I still have to find the vest...uhh)
Oh and I have to find Ben shoes (size 14!!!)
a tie
cuff links

I kind of waited until the last minute (month) for him...
but who knew his stuff would be so difficult?
Ben requested a solid black stone ring.
I've found this black agate ring that is amazing. Just waiting for the supplier to tell me if they have the right size.

I am flying in our photographer from Utah. The amazing (recently engaged) Miss Brooke Kinsey with Blush Photography

I found these cute little place card holders that will act as party gifts and people can take them home for photo holders or something...something to remember our wedding by.

We will be heading to this beautiful land of Mazatlan Mexico for a wonderful week long honeymoon filled with authentic food, surfing, salsa classes, margaritas, laying by the pool and endless adventures and exploring the city! I can hardly wait!

Doesn't it sound amazingly romantic?? I know! And I get to do it all with my wonderful honey and partner! I can hardly wait!!

He's the most amazing man! He's perfect for me and I finally convinced him to marry me...haha I'm only kind of kidding...
He's SMART! ambitious, FUNNY, tall, and handsome! Who couldn't ask for more??
