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 :)

Bring on the cowboy boots baby! haha

My plan is to have one on every seat for the ceremony with a cute program attached to the fan. Something like this...

A song for my sweet love ♥

I can't begin to explain the love i have for my other half. It's sincere and burning with passion. I was just browsing the internet for more songs, and my eyes couldn't help but water to the sound of this specific song by Amel Larrieux called "Make Me Whole". Please listen to her beautiful voice sing these heartfelt lyrics...

Dedicated to the sweet love of my life ♥

"Make Me Whole"

Darling I want you to listen
I stayed up all night, so I could get this thing right
And I don't think there's anything missing
Cause a person like you, made it easy to do
I've waited for so long, to sing to you this song

Cause your eyes are the windows to heaven
Your smile could heal a million souls
Your love completes my existence
You're the other half that makes me whole
You're the only other half that makes me whole

I think the angels are your brothers
They told you about me, said you're just what she needs
And I find myself thanking your mother
For giving birth to a saint
My spirit flies when I say your name
If there's one thing that's true
It's that I was born to love you

Cause your eyes are the windows to heaven
Your smile could heal a million souls
Your love completes my existence
You're the other half that makes me whole
You're the only other half that makes me whole

You make my dreams
Come true over and, over again
And I honestly truly believe
You and me are written in the stars
I live my whole life through
To giving thanks to you

Cause your eyes are the windows to heaven
Your smile could heal a million souls
Your love completes my existence
You're the other half that makes me whole
You're the only other half that makes me whole

Some Music Choices

I've thought a lot about the choice of music. Everyone always has a DJ, but we will not. There's something called a digtal DJ these days lol with the iPhone being plugged to a stereo, so beleive it that anything goes. This lil' weddin' will survive! ♥

I know this song is the song I'm walking down the isle with my mom & dad...

this song i wanna dance with my daddy...

this one too... (tears in my eyes) ...

maybe Eric will dance with his mom to this one? i like the lyrics...

this one's for my mommy & me ...

this one too ... aww man, mom & me will be crying :')

And expect all slow/love songs throughout the night because I don't wanna let Eric go that night :') here's a nice playlist [considering the fact that'll probably be the only night i'll get him to dance lol!]

Pastor/Officiant/Rev./Minister Needed!

We wanted to get married at a christian church, Calvary Chapel, but they said we would need to be members of their church for at least a year, so that's not happening in time. Therefore, I'm now in search of our wedding officiant. This is hard because of the location of our wedding ( Being on a budget doesn't help the fact that traveling will be an issue to many, but I would prefer to look for someone that will be responsible for attending August 13th, 2011. I even did all my wording already, lol. Check back on this post. I don't know how long that will take, or how all of this works, but if anyone knows of anyone who may be able to help us, please let me know. I've been all over Google & some of these people don't look so trust worthy :/

1/7/11 Update:
I'm hoping to meet with some officiants before making a final decision, but here are the possible candidates...

1/9/11 Update:
I SKYPE met with Rev. Judith from Lovely Unique Weddings and she's the sweetest & most responsible officiant I've spoken with by far. She has been supportive within my search & I think she is it :)

1/15/11 Update
We welcome our Rev. Judith who will officiate our wedding ceremony on our wedding day :D

Our date is now truly official!

Okay so for a minute there we didn't think that Eric's job would let him have off but he got his 2011 schedule and he will be off that weekend (wiping sweat off forehead) so AUGUST 13, 2011 it is!


:) "A" squad - 1st line

If they don't let him take off work then it's fine. We just needed the wedding time off. We are not going on a honeymoon anyway. We will leave that for the future.

I'm excited because now I can order our invitations and book the designer, caterer, rental place, etc. That were awaiting the exact date.

Hehe great news to welcome 2011 with



haha...Eric agreed to have a Superman shirt under his suit after we saw this idea...
and i ♥ it! haha. He's MY superman ;D

Mother appreciation gifts during our ceremony

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Let's welcome 2011 today with lots of adoration. Today is my mother's birthday so I figured I would post this post today.

Our mothers are very special to us. We wish to honor them during our ceremony before we say "I do" with a VERY meaningful gift. We thought a lot about this and we are thinking about a gold locket for them to have as a keepsake of our day. Something similar to this...

with 4 pictures in this gold locket :) we are thinking a baby pic of him & me and then a recent pic of him & me.

awwww i saw this & thought it was super cute!...


I know they will shed happy tears during this moment of our ceremony. And it will be a special surprise :)

(((yes it is a secret surprise they don't know about so keep it a secret!)))

Only 7 months to go!!! :D
