With the new year comes the obvious change in date, resolutions and of course...another wedding season!! It's a time of year I always look forward to. This year promises to be another busy but exciting spring and summer full of weddings!
I wanted to share our current line-up of 2011 weddings we'll be attending, their cute pictures and a few of the details...
Melissa & Parker
Melissa and Parker are having a small ceremony on the beach with immediate family and a few friends. They choose a destination wedding for a few reason, the biggest (no pun intended) being that they're expecting a baby in May (see the bump here)! They wanted to tie the knot now and plan to have a large reception back in Colorado in late summer or fall, after the baby is born.
I will be traveling to Costa Rica sans B, but with some of my favorite high school ladies (plus Dave!). Not only am I looking forward to watching one of my besties tie the knot, I'm thankful for the motivation it's currently given me to workout! I am currently helping with a few wedding details (and surprises!) that I will share after the big day.
Debbie & Jeremy
April 30 ~ Turlock, California
Debbie and Jeremy are having a large ceremony (350+) and reception in Turlock, California (Debbie's hometown). While in Boston (Jeremy's hometown) last spring they had engagement photos taken at Fenway Park, home of the other love in Jeremy's life, the Boston Red Sox!
The photo below was turned into their save-the-date, which you can see here on Debbie's blog. You can also follow along with her wedding projects as she counts down 30 before April 30.
Over the last year or so B and I have both become good friends with Debbie and Jeremy so we are both really looking forward to witnessing their big day! I'm especially looking forward to seeing all Debbie's projects come to life, I know they won't disappoint.
See their entire engagement photo session here!
Sara & Andy
May 28 ~ Denver, Colorado
Sara and Andy are getting married over Memorial Day weekend in Denver. Their ceremony will take place on the grounds of Denver University, followed by a reception at an art gallery on Santa Fe.
Perfectly aligned with their city wedding, are their adorable city engagement photos. The top photo was used in their save-the-date cards.
When Sara began her planning I was honored that she asked me to be her coordinator. After one talk we decided it would be more fun to help plan along the way and attend the wedding as a guest. Sara ended up hiring another friend as her wedding coordinator, Jackie with Jaclyn Michelle Weddings (great name, eh?)! And Kaci will be baking the cakes!
Sarah & Derek
July 29 ~ San Rafael, California
Sarah and Derek are getting married this summer in San Rafael where they currently live and work. Their ceremony will take place in a local park and fitting for these teachers, their reception is at the St Vincent School for Boys!
Their engagement photos were also taken in their neck of the woods and I just love everything about them (the photos and the couple)!
Sarah and Derek have been together for over five years, so I've known them both a long time. I know I'm not alone in saying that I can't wait for their wedding! I have a feeling it will be just like them - unique and a total blast.
Layna & Dave
August 5 ~ Denver, Colorado
Layna and Dave are getting married towards the end of summer, just outside of Denver at the Boettcher Mansion (same venue as Stephanie & Mark's wedding). These love birds will tie the knot in their element - surrounded by the trees and their families and friends.
Over the holidays Layna's twin sister, JNelly, took their engagement photos in Beaver Creek. Not only are they an adorable couple, but these photos truly capture their love of the outdoors. The photos will be used for their save-the-dates, which are currently in the works!
I've known Layna since Kindergarten and have been friends for a better part of that time. I could not have better hand selected a man for her to marry. I am very much looking forward to being a part of their special day!
I promise to share details along the way and highlights after each.
