oh dearie me, it has been QUITE a week! The proposal really threw my life for a tailspin and I've been floating ever since Thursday night. I can't believe it's already been a week! So since the big night of the engagement, we have:
.....decided on colors!
Ian and I decided on a deep plum and a light mango color. Maybe a few splashes of berry and silver accents. We were inspired by an article we saw in Brides magazine:
(That's really not a great scan of the flowers because of the pink background...)
But I just know its going to be magical and warm and a beautiful celebration.
We haven't decided on a date yet. We're waiting to do that a few months down the line, but we're shooting for June 2011. It sounds like a really long way away, but since its almost 2010 right now, we figured we could enjoy our engagement for a few months. :] Aside from that, we decided on a minister, a videographer, 2 choices for photographer, a pianist, the overall style of our wedding, and our wedding party!
I'm really going to try not to talk TOO much about the wedding, because I know that can get annoying after awhile, but trust me, I'm going to have lots to say about it. It's going to have a very handmade feel and be positively WONDERFUL. I found this recently too and fell in love:
So what are your thoughts? I need some wedding inspiration! If you have any awesome wedding/wedding photography/bride blogs or websites, I need to know about it! Please share! :]
In other news, I have a few things I've been working on too! I did a painting for a girl in my building. She loves the Sick Puppies and penguins and asked me to paint her something of my own.
I really love how it turned out. It's one of those paintings that you just hate to part with. :] BUT! I AM super excited because this week the major cutie Janel and I are doing a painting exchange! I've been needing something like this! :] YAY!
Also, here's a peek of a painting I started the night I got engaged! I started it a few hours BEFORE Ian proposed and have yet to finish it. Notice that the clouds do a little foreshadowing with the diamond look! haha and to think i had NO idea...
Plusss here's some images from the couple portrait session I shot this past weekend too. *gorgeous*
It was a lot of fun for sure. <3
Wellll I know this wasn't much, but its better than being MIA, yes? Remember--link me up to wedding magic!
<3 you all!
