V & S - 11/12/2010 - SBP/Attic/UK Lower - WE ARE BACK!

Let the planning journal begin (way too late)!

Just wanted to get this post in so that I have it started.

We are from Northwestern Ontario and are getting married in November.

We have done quite a bit already, but I'll try to get it all organized and post it here soon!

Woot for November weddings!

Our story!

Vanessa was the second person Sean met at university. Vanessa has no recollection of it.

They lived in residence together. Then, they were neighbours. Sean remembers Vanessa dancing to Billie Jean. Vanessa knows that Sean wore a bandana while tearin’ up the basketball court once….and he drove a truck that Vanessa never rode in.

They moved out of residence and one day they kissed. Whoa. Since Vanessa didn’t understand boys and Sean didn’t understand girls…they went on with their lives as usual. They waved a cool wave…or made less than a split second of eye contact when they saw each other. Was it love?

They graduated, left university and didn’t speak for a decade. Sean went to college and moved home. Vanessa moved to Ottawa, Val d’Or, St.Catharines, Welland, Fort Albany, Toronto, and Oshawa, got married, had a baby, got divorced…whew!

Enter Elliott, the world’s most lovable three year old. Thank you MSN. Vanessa and Sean reconnected.

They went camping. Vanessa moved north...closer to Sean (for a job). There were fireworks…no really…actual fireworks outside the window. Sean visited Vanessa. Vanessa visited Sean. Elliott got Sean to wear princess outfits and dance to Anne Murray.

Vanessa and Sean went on a ROOOOAAAADTRIP! They drove. They saw fireflies, buffalo, Deadwood and the Badlands. Also...he sang every word to "Beth" by Kiss. She loved him anyway!

Vanessa and Sean and Elliott bought a house in Dryden. On Dec. 11, he sort of got down on one knee..she said, "YES". Now, even though Sean is a Penguins fan, they are tying the knot!

Why Disney?
We live pretty far from my (Vanessa's) family...and we have 6 children under six in our immediate families. We were trying to find a location that was affordable to get to and where people would be able to enjoy some family time. It's actually cheaper to get to Orlando than it is to get to Dryden! Many people in our families have never been to WDW, and don't you think it's something everyone should try once?

...and so we are getting married on Nov. 12 at WDW. SPB/The Attic/UK Lower.

Dresses

First, I do not know how to post pictures and I am not sure what the dress designer and number are for my dress. Weird on both fronts.

Bridesmaid Dresses (will be in indigo blue...not the colour shown)

http://www.bestbridalprices.com/imag...arge//1641.jpg

Impressions Bridal 1641 in indigo blue

When I figure out the pictures thing, I'll post a pic of my dress.

Next post...floral....sigh.

Cake

I decided to go with a cake post first! Floral is making me delirious.

I'm trying a new pic thing...so please let me know if you can't see the pics.

I'm posting pics of two cakes. The first one (blue/green with an S on the top) is the style we are going for.

The second, bright, multi-colored one are the colors we are using. The one in the pic is a bday cake...but ours will be for a wedding!

Should be fun.

Cake topper

For the cake topper we decided to ask disney to incorporate our home cities.

I am from St. Thomas, ON and we have a huge statue of Jumbo the elephant.

Where, Sean is from, there is a huge statue of Max the Moose.

We sent a couple pics we found on etsy, so we'll see what disney comes up with.

inspiration pics:

Personal Floral

Thanks for the nice comments Tinkerbell!

Okay. I'm not really sold on floral yet. I'll post a few links to things that we are leaning towards:

deep red bouquet with burgundy or plum calla lilies for bride.

One of the following two for bridesmaids (who are wearing indigo blue, long dresses...pic posted earlier in thread)

http://www.flickr.com/photos/5194637...n/photostream/

I think I would like to have some sort of ribbon wrap that makes the flowers pop a bit more...but it might be hard to do this without making the ceremony look tacky. Again...disney floral will hopefully come up with something beautiful.

Nothing on boutonnieres for me yet!

Oooo I'm so excited to follow along with you! We're getting married Feb 15 - SBP, The Attic, and I'm not giving up on a DP.

I can't see some of your pics though - do I need a login to access them because of privacy settings?

Photography

We were going to go with Fat Catz, be we switched to Randy Chapman. Randy offered us a cd only package that was longer coverage and cheaper than the FatCatz coverage. I sort of wanted to take a chance on Fat Catz, but I couldn't find a lot of info and review out there for them. So, we are playing it safe, since we know exactly what we will get from Randy.

The great thing about Fat Catz is that you get two photographers! Anyway, if RC wasn't available or didn't have the cd only package, we would have gone with them for sure.
