Behind the Scenes of the Seven Week Wedding

Here are those sneak preview photos I promised to all of you who shared creative shower and wedding ideas with me this week!

Here are the invitations – simple and elegant. We are already recieving lots of responses – one of the most fun parts of parts of preparing for a wedding is all the extra mail one gets! 🙂


My most favorite part of making a wedding is the flowers! I started picking out blossoms and planning bouquets…


Here’s Mom, Elise and I making invitations to Joanna’s Bridal Shower.


We found the stamp on sale – it’s so elegant and vintage looking – just Joanna’s style we thought.

This week Mom, Elise, and Jen made lasagnas – transforming 30 Lbs of mozzerella, 30 Lbs of ricotta, 90 egs, 6 large cans of tomoto sauce, 10 Lbs. of ramano, a case of noodles, and 30 Lbs. of meat into 18 tasty lasagnas which they froze in preparation for the reception dinner.

We also worked on Elise’s maid-of-honor gown and got it altered and hemmed to fit.

In our spare time (*wink*) we worked on preparations for the shower next weekend, and planned Joanna’s first week back in the states – gown fittings, veil and shoe shopping, etc.

We are looking forward to our Bride arriving home tomorrow night – she has made it back into the states and will be heading our way from Washington DC tomorrow!!!
