Hello friends and family. I hope to keep you up to date on wedding plans and such here at the blog. For those of you in planning mode . . . . here is some info you might like to have.
We have a block of rooms reserved at the Hampton Inn here in Ames, Iowa, for the wedding. If you are planning to attend, you can visit the wedding website to secure your room at the wedding party rate.
There are certainly other hotel options in Ames. We just chose this one to set aside a block of rooms. Of course it will be more fun if you are all staying at the same place!
Mark and I took engagement photos over the weekend. It was so much fun! I'll try to post a few when I get the link to the gallery. Mom and Jerry came to town on Monday. My friend Eve, mom, and I had a VERY SUCCESSFUL dress shopping day on Tuesday. I HAVE A WEDDING DRESS! Crazy. Truly crazy. It is beautiful. No photos however. Can't let Mark in on the secret.
We have the reception place picked out, are in the process of deciding on places to register, and continue talking through the ceremony plans. It really is fun to think about all this. It is even more fun when I stop to realize that at the end of all this I'll be married to one very incredible man. How cool is that?
