We found our venue today...it is beautiful. It is called the Dove Creek Lodge in Key Largo, Fl. They do one wedding a weekend there and I sat with the GM of the hotel today, Jamie, who is fabulous and talked about this, that and the other! We got a lot out of the way in regards to the style I want, the food we'll probably have, the ceremony site, etc. The place is little there are 14 rooms/suites in total and we are fingers crossed going to try to rent the whole place. Hopefully our people will reserve a room there. I am going to sit down tomorrow and try to see if I can figure out who will and who will not stay there. I also think Prince Phillip and I will leave after the wedding and go to the Marriott or should we stay there again? I don't know, any suggestions are welcomed. You know, I just feel a little weird staying there on my wedding night with all our family and friends who clearly know what we'll be doing...TMI for them I think.
Tomorrow my Dad is going to call and secure our date with a deposit. I'm excited. My mom and I drove down there right after my optometrist appointment, had lunch at the place that caters the wedding and then checked out the place before we got back in the car to drive home. We drove 2 hours each way. It has been quite a long day--I'm exhausted.
In the morning, I leave my parents' house to head back to Orlando. I'll spend the night in Orlando and then Monday morning when Prince Phillip wakes up to head to work, I'll pack up the pups and head home. I can't wait to see my kitties, I miss them so much!
Our engagement pictures are in two weeks and I am super excited about them. I still have no decided on any outfits to wear, any suggestions are always welcomed. I am a bit worried about using this photographer just because she is so dreamy in her images, but I did send her an email to let her know what I like and what I don't so I am sure she'll be able to work it. If not, I figure we will re-shoot a session and then if we like them secure them for the wedding date.
Here are a couple of pictures for you:
This one is of a potential for the ceremony set up, I am not sure since that is set up for 100 how it would look for 50...too naked? What do you think.
This pic is of the high topped tables set up on the pool deck for the cocktail hour:
