Hello!  For all of those joining us because you received your Save-the-Date in the mail, Welcome!  I will continue to post these little blogs to the site in the coming weeks.  Brett and I are also working on finishing the website. The accommodations information is coming soon along with info about our bridal party, registry, and wedding ceremony.  So keep coming back in the coming weeks for more details about our big day!


Wedding dress is finished!

Hello to all!

More and more wedding things underway.  The save the dates are almost done being designed by the one and only, Brett Jones.  🙂  And my wedding dress is finished!  I’m currently trying to keep my fingers on each of the many details still to work out (basically trying to atleast remember all of them!  ha!) and picking out fun accessories for both the reception and me, the bride.  🙂

The wedding dress that I will be wearing is my mother’s.  It has been restyled by a wonderful woman, Tina Colombo.  Her expertise and creativity made the process so exciting and enjoyable. She transformed a 1970’s wedding dress into one that has all of its original charm, along with some new modern flares.  🙂  Together I very much feel like we’ve created the perfect blend of my and my mother’s bridal tastes.  🙂  Tina does both custom dress design as well as heirloom gown restyling.

Her website is:

(hopefully a wonderful little advertisement for a very deserving woman)  🙂

Thats all for today I think.  My unofficial/official wedding planner says that I should start thinking about flowers…so I think I’ll start with that next.  🙂

More to come soon!


We’re blogging!

Hello to all!

Wedding planning is in full swing here in Champaign-Urbana.  For those of you fully interested in all of the gruesome details, I will post them here!  🙂  We’ve been guest list organizing and save the date preparing and website editing while still being full time students, puppy parents, and runners (…and bikers, and playing with photography, and Mal’s writing a book, and Brett is fixing his dad’s bike, and then there’s always the yard to take care of, and the living room to finish fixing…).  But wedding planning takes no back seat!  🙂  Stay tuned for more fun filled wedding activities.  We’ll soon have information up on the bridal party, as well as the accommodations and ceremony info, and details on the registry!

See you all soon!
