Wedding Programs

We finally got around to making our wedding days before our wedding. I printed, folded & stamped. Eric sewed the yellow thread on to keep the papers together. It was a super sweet project :) It was funny too, because we ran out of ink & the brown looked like purple on some pages LOL! They still do the job though hehe. Made with lots of love too :)

Table runners

We spent so much time on our table runners today. We were listening to Phil Whickham as we snipped away, but we got it done together :) Even Coco loved the fabric we chose at Jomar.

So we're thinking about the day's plan & here's what it looks like so far:


8am - Get hair & makeup done
930am - get dressed
10am - bridal portraits
11am- couple's portraits
1pm - Ceremony
2pm - a few family portraits & then couple's portraits with the horses
4pm - reception (eat!)
6pm - bride & groom's first dance & then parent dances
630pm - change to comfortable outfit & relax
7pm - PHOTOBOOTH pictures w/ props & smores on the fire pit

*I will continue to update as things come up in mind ;)

We're been busy today...

We started on our favors & love them!

And we started printing our signs & placed them in the frames

that's enough for today. SO much more we still have to do, but making progress :)

One month and one week to go! YAY!
We're excited for next Wednesday...we go for the marriage license & i go get my dress fitted. ahhh :D

Hair & Make-up Services

I am so psyched! I'm going to feel like a princess on my wedding day :D
I was having a hard time finding a makeup AND hair stylist, but a few minutes ago i found the PERFECT place. The Omni Hotel in Bedford, PA has amazing services & it's only half hour away from the farm.

I'm so happy now. I've been having a bad day due to my car breaking down, but the Lord knows my heart & always provides :)

I will need someone other than Eric to take me to the Omni Spa Saturday morning...any volunteers? (HINT HINT: Carlos & Jose lol)

UPDATE: 7/5/11 : FINAL DECISION! - We (sisters & me) are now leaning more towards just putting curling rolls on our hair the day before & just letting them down the morning of. Easier, we always do that and it looks just like when the salon does it. And for the make-up, we're going to do it ourselves. We want very simple looks, so it's do-able ;)

Eric's Boutonniere is SUPER CUUTE!

Okay, so we want a keepsake, not just a flower that'll fade & wither. We chose a custom handmade "police officer" themed boutonniere for Eric & we both love it.

Neon eye glasses in the dark

Haha if you guys are coming to our wedding is most likely because you know us. And if you know us you know how funny and silly we can be.

With that being said I just found another quirky idea...NEON EYE GLASSES. Let's bring on the night at the farm with a colorful glow.


These will make some awesome funny pictures. Can't wait!!!




Happy Easter everyone! HE IS RISEN!

As I wait for Eric to come home from work so we can go have a feast with our family, I came up with a fun and quirky idea for after the announcement of our marriage...

Remember when cops used to use whistles back in the day???

Well I am going to place a whistle on everyone's chair at the ceremony so that instead of blowing bubbles or throwing rice everyone can blow their whistles!!!

:D how fun!

I can picture Eric and I laughing as we walk down the isle as Mr. and Mrs. Nuñez :)

And what great laughing pictures this will make ;) JOYFUL family welcoming a new couple ... us.

Not only can these welcome us but also keep us kissing all day. HAHA. Any time you want us to kiss, blow your whistle!

Yay! I gets lots of lovings. Lol.

We love the idea!

Here's what I've found so far (i will continue to update this post as i find any & post the final one i choose after):

UPDATE: 4/23/11 ~ I bought the ivory 120 inch one... satisfying ;)

I suggest you stay! [guest info]

Eric & I have thought about this since before we booked the farm for our wedding: the distance away from home. After lots of back & forth we booked the farm for our wedding. We absolutely loved it when we went for a visit. Therefore, we found a few great places for our guests to stay in. Yes, it is FAR from Philadelphia, PA, but see it as a mini relaxing getaway my dears ;)

We suggest you grab a hotel friday night & stay through Sunday morning. Here are 2 great hotels near the farm (30min - 15 miles from the farm):


Best Western

We hope you plan ahead and book in advance!

With love,
Nelz & Eric

Happy Valentine's Day ♥

"God is Love"1 John 4

Today morning I decided to surprise Eric with a breakfast date. We both had such a great morning. We spoke of God's amazing love, laughed at a few reminicsing moments of our dating days & how God kept us together through all this time. And how our love for God brought us even closer together, now that we are engaged to be married on 8/13/11. Here are a few highlights of our morning.






May you all have a great day, know that all gifts come from God and love ALWAYS ♥ Amen.

Everyone knows how I am with pictures, so OBVIOUSLY I'm hiring a pro for this part. I'm excited to announce that Ivy from will be our photographer for the day :D Her work is amazing & i completely trust her. Next week I pay her off & she's booked. YAY! I'm so excited!

I'm more concerned about my ceremony, bridals of me & couples portraits, so Ivy will be more of a guest than a photographer.

Just so you all know, there will be a camera table & DIY photobooth, so we'll have fun taking some group pictures too.

I know i want ONE GROUP picture, and i already planned it, so you all will have to just follow Ivy for further directions when the day comes.

Everyone keeps asking me am i bringing my own camera? LOL. uhmm DUH! lol. I will be taking detail shots at some point before the crowd heads over, just because I'll feel at ease before my big day :D

I'm so excited! I keep looking online through things that make me smile & I've made a slideshow for you to see what I want out of my day:

Well, I'm tired & it's late, so I'll be going to dream about these again hehe...
it's what nelz does, as her love for photography is great & her title will be reversed on her wedding day from the one behind her own camera to the one in front of someone elses camera.

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WE LOVE THEM!Can't wait to mail our save the dates!

Can I choose the look of our Marriage Certificate?

SNOW DAY! That means lots of boring time to spend online browsing lol. This may be a bit silly, but i'd love an old looking marriage certificate, not one that's modern.

I really like this one. I think it's colorful and still has that vintage look. Agnus Dei Printing has them for a good price :) I think i'll be ordering this one soon!

a few scattered ideas i found

I look online for ideas, not knowing what i'll find or if i'll use them, but these are too cute not to share.

We have a fire place in the living room of the farm, and we will not have the fire on (since it's summer), so instead i can put candles to decorate it.

If i can't put the cake INSIDE the suitcase, i'll put it ON TOP OF the suitcase. still looks amazing!

This is cute & will serve as a memory piece :)
