june 24, 2012!

13 Sep

Yes, yes…we know. We haven’t posted in a while! But rest assured…we’ve been busy with wedding details, and it’s been so fun and exciting so far. It’s about time we updated you all. We have a date! On June 24, 2012, we will officially be a Mr. and a Mrs. I love June because it’s right after springtime and just before summer, when the weather is not too cold but not yet too hot…maybe a little bit of both, or maybe somewhere in between! Our anniversary falls in June. It’s also right before July (my birthday month). And all the other month’s names are too difficult to pronounce anyway…lol just kidding.

The venue! What about the venue, you ask? We’ve teased you with several wedding venues and we haven’t even told you all which one of them is THE ONE. Well, actually, we have two. We are absolutely in LOVE with these two places. In fact, they were the first two venues we visited in our long search. We’ll give you all a sneak peak, but mind you…we’ll only post a photo or two, just to leave a little element of surprise on the big day!

The Ceremony: Oak Canyon Nature Center

Love, love…LOVE! I always knew I wanted to get married in an outdoor setting surrounded by nature. This venue is located in the quiet Anaheim Hills, and is surrounded by streams and large oak trees. What I love about it is that it’s so green and peaceful…we’ll be entering our marriage surrounded by everything natural and peaceful…so perfect! 🙂

The Reception: Orange County Center for Contemporary Art

Yes, we’re having our reception in an art gallery! We like to think we are a pretty creative pair, and what better way to design our dream wedding than to have a blank canvas to work with. That’s exactly what we’re getting at OCCCA. One of my best memories so far about wedding planning, and I’m sure he won’t admit it, but from the moment we stepped into the art gallery, Ozzie literally fell in love and begged to have our reception here! lol But it was contagious, and I quickly fell in love too. I love the high, wood-beam ceilings and the old brick walls that peak through the walls.

So you see, we have a lot of work to do. Neither one of our venues provide anything but space. That’s the fun part…we have total control. From the size/shape of the table…to the food…to the design of the space…the sky’s the limit, literally. We can decorate however we want to, and believe me…give me the inch, and I’ll take the mile. 🙂 We’re so excited!

What we’ve been up to? The fun wedding planning has already begun, and as I said in the beginning, we’ve been so busy! We’re busy scouring flea markets and thrift stores for everything you can think of, and in fact, we already have a huge collection…everything from old furniture to quaint little vases and jars. Stay tuned! We have LOTS to blog about!
