I just mailed in our photography deposit! We'll be using 4 Corners Photography! She made a custom package for us to work within our budget - very helpful! Very excited and happy to have another thing checked off the list :)
You can visit their website on shutterfly to see her photographs.

This is one of my favorite from her photobooks and it's BHGC!:

Ding Ding!

Trolley time! I think we are going to use Mackinaw Trolley company for our transportation from the Inn at Bay Harbor to the Bay Harbor Golf Course. It winds through the awesome houses that are between the Inn and the golf course. They are right along Lake Michigan - beautiful! I think this is a unique spin to transportation. :)

Essence Couture - Essence of Australia

Today I went to Fantastic Finds to try on the wedding dress for my dad - to get the ok before we purchase next weekend. I'm glad I went because what I was thinking my dress looked like was not what my dress looked like! I like my dress even more than the picture I thought it was! I guess it's not on the designer site because they don't have all their dresses up there. So I came across these two dresses that have parts that look like mine. So in the end - the dress will be a surprise to everyone! :)

(above & below) The bottom & train is similar to the one on my dress
(above & below) - The hint of sweetheart neckline and the bodice are similar to mine and then the back w/corset style is the same. The dress is in a taffeta ivory.

I think we might have our guests blow bubbles at us as we walk down the aisle as Mr. & Mrs., I like the fun touch it adds!

I believe...

This is the wedding dress I am going to get!!!!! Try not to get distracted by the feathers in the hair (ha!). I think this dress says it has crystals in it - but mine doesn't, and it's taffeta - I think this also comes in a silk gown. But I'm pretty sure this is it. I'm going back soon so my dad can see and then again to a designer show to buy it!!! I'll be sure to pose like this in one of my wedding photos. :)

H-A-I-R.... too hard to decide!

Hair! It's so difficult to choose! Up, down?? My dress is strapless so I hear I should wear it down or half up! I'm not sure! I saw these... any opinions???

We just need flowers, bakery for our cupcakes, wedding planner... and we think we have chosen a photographer. :) yay! It's coming along....

We've found a DJ!

We have chosen our DJ, he is actually my hairstylist's son! He owns his own DJ company - called A Different Spin! We are very excited - we basically told him he can't "suck" because we love to dance. He's been DJing for 12 years now and has a do not play list - which is good and lots of songs we love - so I think it'll be a great time! The DJ is my favorite part!!! :)

I think there is going to be a.....

PHOTO BOOTH... at the wedding!!! :) It's not going to look like this one (haha!), but it's going to be fun. We are sending the deposit this week and are looking forward to having it! :) Our friends Dave & Jen had one at their wedding in December and it was so much fun! What's even more funny is that my mom really wants to have it. haha!

I'm looking into finding a planner in northern michigan - if anyone has any references that'd be great!
