Wedding Wednesday: Venue, Caterer & Photographer

It's only fitting that there's no longer a Wedding Wednesday linkup
now that yours truly is engaged. Seriously. 6 months ago I was secretly
still participating sans the ring on my left hand. Now that it's acceptable
OF COURRSEEEE I'm the only one who feels the need to continue with 
these super fun yet sometimes obnoxious posts! 

So for those of you who haven't been paying attention, in the past
month we have picked up, moved to a new town, started new jobs and
Oh! Right! We're still planning a wedding. So blogging hasn't been number uno. 
Or dos, tres, quatro, cinco.. you get the picture.

So let me bring you up to speed on wedding items!

1- We have a venue:
On March 1st 2014 we will be getting married at BG Equestrian Resort.
"Fabulous" honestly doesn't do this place justice. 
The property is just jaw-dropping. We both wanted an outdoorsy
wedding but not necessarily "barn wedding." This farm was perfect.
They call it an equestrian resort so translation? High class farm. 
There's around 90 acres of green pastures and a BEAUTIFUL 
10,000 square foot house which we will also be renting out for 
the wedding party that weekend. 

2- We have a caterer:
We booked our caterer and finally decided on a menu!
At first I was so against a buffet-style dinner because when I think
wedding I think SITTING and being SERVED. Well, with a guest count
of around 300, a plated meal was not an option. So out with that idea.
Buffet-style will be more than fine. We went with a spinach-stuffed chicken
breast and a prime rib carving station. So glad that is finally checked off 
the list because if you remember THIS POST you will recall that I
hate the food part. So moooooving right along. 

And YES I did just drop you a little teaser just now. 
We decided to book a photographer out of Orlando that we
have worked a couple events with in the past so we knew their 
work was amazing. We took our engagement pictures (post to come!) out at a few
different parks and..
Next item!

4- We sent Save the Dates!
Ok let me rephrase, we're in the PROCESS of sending save the dates.
I've been sending them out for about a week or so now and my 
parents keep sending me more lists of family we forgot, people they
went to high school with, blaaaahblahblah. 
So needless to say I've been killin' me some bottles of wine lately
just a stampin' away! BUT we're almost there. 

So how's that for a wedding update?!
4 and a half months to go! 


  1. HOLY SMOKES! You are one busy, busy bride-to-be. I want you to know that I am beyond impressed with you and your organization and decision making skills. I know you have freak out moments here and there and you feel that all of your waking moments not spent working, are spent wedding planning. BUT THE HARD WORK IS PAYING OFF! You are going to have the most amazingly beautiful wedding! LOVE YOU!!

  2. Hi, Corin! First off, let me offer a huge congratulations on your wedding! Wedding is one of the biggest events in a woman's life, so everything has to be perfect. The venue, the guest list, the gown, the theme of the wedding, and of course, the catering. One great way to celebrate a wonderful day is by having delicious and sumptuous food. I hope things went as you dreamed. Cheers!
