Nick and I decided it was about time we register for a few things. If you’re looking to buy us gifts please check out Crate & Barrel and Bed Bath & Beyond for our registries.
Little late on the update but still of interest 🙂
Surprisingly (to me at least) I’ve had the hardest time trying to pick bridesmaid dresses. I was extremely indecisive about the color cut fabric style.. everything! Honestly, designers have done such a great job (granted not all of them…) that I had to many great options to choose from. Last weekend with the help of Heather and Alex, we were able to finalize a color and dress! So thankful to have the set and so excited to see them on everyone.
Bridesmaid dresses are from the same designer that made my wedding dress, the lovely Laura Smith of A Brides Design. Be sure to check out her boutique if you are planning a wedding because everything is so gorgeous you will be sure to fall in love with something.
Side note: I am having a sugar craving today so these are the AMAZING cupcake flavors that will be at the wedding from Main Street Cupcakes 🙂 *drool
– Wedding day White
– French Toast
– Chocolate Peanut Butter
– Pumpkin Spice
– Half Baked!!!

We are happy to report, that after much debate…. (not really)… we have gone with a CUPCAKE wedding cake. We picked out all our favorite flavors from Mainstreet Cupcakes to share with you.
I’ll keep the flavors a secret but if I’ve ever talked to you about Mainstreet Cupcakes you probably already know!
Can’t wait to share our latest obsession with you! Check ’em out at here.
Nick and I finally got around to taking our engagement photos at John Carroll University. Here are a few of the ones we took between my favorite arches.
Love this blue color with a cream of nude accent. These flowers are also really beautiful! Also looking into nude or tan colored dresses. Let us know what you think or send us more ideas!
Love the idea of a natural look of these table settings. The burlap color goes well with our color scheme! What do you think? Please share any other ideas you find.
We booked the Clifton Barn for our reception and ceremony site! This is a photo of the outside patio area where our ceremony will take place.
