It's Official... we're getting married's official... the church is reserved, the reception hall is booked, and we have the photographer we want for our special day!! Oh, and we bought the wedding rings yesterday!

Here's the link to the photographer we chose:

In completely seriousness, I looked at probably close to 200 or 300 websites for Indiana and Kentucky photographers. Cameron and I knew exactly what we were looking for and had a price range, so when I was referred to Wade and Stephanie Carignan (pronounced Carry-en) after looking through so many websites, we fell in love. They use a photojournalist and artistic style to take the most beautiful wedding photos. They are a husband and wife team based out of Noblesville and I think we will be VERY happy with our decision!

Our church for the wedding is the church where my family has attended for years... I remember being a little girl and imagining myself getting married there, so there was no other option of where to exchange our wedding vows.

Our caterer is a friend/co-worker of my mom and I'm very excited about the deal she's decided to give us! :) We haven't yet decided what to serve, but we're thinking about a couple types of pasta with salad and bread sticks...

Our reception hall was the biggest headache of them all.... We wanted the a local community building, but after numerous un-answered and un-returned phone calls, I learned that the building was booked, so we called another family friend who is in charge of another local \bBuilding and reserved it. At first, I was really nervous about the size difference, but after thinking about it, I think I'm happier with the decision and I think we will have plenty of room. The building, overall, is prettier. The drive will be shorter from the church to the hall (if the back roads are used with proper signs). And---it will be cheaper in the long run. If we used the first building, Cam insisted on renting the big, white parachutes, but they won't be necessary at the second building, so even though the second's rent is higher, we're still saving money!

Yesterday, we were in the mall and decided to go ahead and order our wedding bands....We both decided that because we went with such an elaborate engagement ring, that my wedding band would be simple---just a silver band. Cam went with a darker, titanium band. This sounds silly, but we picked out his 2 months ago, wrote down the code and then went back yesterday to order it. It was out of stock so we didn't get to see it again, and now we can't remember what it looks like, but we think its one of these two. He tried on so many that day that it's hard to remember... I know, that sounds so dumb and silly... but we really can't remember! haha...

so.... we've marked off a few things on the "to-do" list... now, we just need to decide on a DJ and contact the cake lady for the cake.... and we'll pretty well set as far as the vendors. Cam's mom really enjoys making floral arrangements and bouquets, and does a great job, so we're going to work together to pick out the flowers to get all of those made :)

It just seems so crazy that this is all starting to fall into place! :) Be looking for another blog soon that will introduce the bridal party!!!
