1 Year and 2 Days!

We've actually done a lot of planning so far but I just decided to start this blog. I'll post updates of what we've done for planning.

Here's what we've got so far:

The date of course...October 2, 2010.

The church...
St. Patrick's in Newry, PA. I went to elementary school at the school across the street. The church has been rebuilt since I went to school there but it still has the same statues, stained glass windows and a lot of the older church. It was built right next to the site of the old church and very similar so it is still a special place for me.

The reception site...
Scotch Valley Country Club. For a fall wedding, my mother wasn't really sure how the weather would hold up. So the compromise was a ballroom with lots of windows and in the country so you can see all the trees and leaves changing and still get a bit of an outdoor effect. The ballroom is surrounded by windows, overlooking the gorgeous Central Pennsylvania mountains and about 4 miles from civilization so close enough that it's easy to get to but still not in the middle of Altoona.

I also have the dress...you don't get to see that though!

We booked all the vendors...florist, dj, photographer, but have zero details worked out! We need to figure out times, centerpieces, bridesmaid dresses, tuxes, invitations, transportation, extra decorations, food, ceremony music...the list probably will never end.

We've been engaged for almost 5 months now, I feel like I think about the wedding 24/7 but still not much is done. It's time to really start actualy buying things, putting together ideas and hopefully ending up with the perfect wedding day!

So this post isn't all about just the wedding planning...Tom has been away in California for almost 2 weeks and is finally coming home so I've very excited! We have all kinds of fall plans for October scheduled like pumpkin carving, the Boggy Bayou Mullet Festival, making apple spice donuts, but since we're in Florida, it's still great weather for the beach too! My mom is coming tomorrow and we're hoping to get lots of wedding things done. I'll keep you posted on all the details as they start to come together :)
