I can't believe its been 6 months since we got engaged, and only 13 months until we get married! Thats crazy! Well I wanted to give you guys an update on how it is going. I may have gone a little crazy the first week when we got married and book a lot of things but I have to say I did take the summer off. My oldest sister got married Labor Day, so I wanted to make sure that all the focus was on her, but now that were are almost a year out I need to get some stuff done!
Now Im going to keep a few things a secret so that when I get married its a surprised but I'll share some things!
I booked our venue as soon as we got engaged because its in high demand but its a fun brewery here in town pretty well known in Cincinnati. I loved it for the rustic brick look it had, all while meaning something special to us.
Florist - Check out Katie Bloom's cause this girl is AMAZING! Im obsessed with her work and I can't wait for her to do our wedding.
Photographer - David is the bomb, Henry got him for our engagement and I love that he captured that special moment! He's so good at what he does and really helps to make us feel comfortable! We are getting our official engagement photos done soon and it will be do fun!
Videographer- At first I was totally against the idea but now Im sorta obsessed. To be able to relive that day or share it with people that couldnt be there will be awesome. But I also viewed it as our first family video. I can't wait to be able to relive that day that meant so much, and we spent so much time on. I also can't wait to show our kids it someday. Thats what really got me. Check out our guy Mat, Im obsessed with his work.
So what Im currently working on is, our caterers, hotel blocks, officiant and either a band/dj!
If you guys have any advice send it my way! One of the best advice I've gotten so far is to pick something seperately thats important to you and together something thats important and go over budget on that if you need to. To me it was the florist, for Henry it was the photographer and to us it was the venue. Even though they were pricey, they were important to us and I dont think I will regret giving them extra and trimming on some other stuff.
