Coming out

on January 8, 2012

Officially announced our engagement on Facebook today, and the response is largely positive! One of the best parts of this is getting back in touch with old friends, and finding out what people are up to as we all enter adulthood. I’ll post this blog to my Facebook page so that people can keep up with us on here instead of inundating everyone’s newsfeed with wedding whatnot.

In other news, we’re pretty sure that we’ve chosen a location! King Family Vineyard is in Crozet, so everyone will have a short drive to get there, but it’s surrounded by horses in fields and the mountains. It’s a pretty adult setting for a ceremony and reception that will probably be fairly childlike. I think it’ll work out quite well, though.

In case you didn’t already know, our theme is Pixar’s movie UP, and our colors are blue and silver.

Current inspiration:

Offbeat Bride

    Congratulations, I’m so happy for you guys! Also, my guilty pleasure is reading wedding blogs. Since I’m big into working towards marriage equality, I end up on a lot of sites about engagements and weddings. So, thank you very much sharing these neat sites. I’ve been reading articles on Offbeat Bride for the last hour. Good luck with your wedding planning!

    Balloon are super cheap if you wanted to use them for any and everything. Like instead of carrying flowers you carried tiny balloons or used them as centerpieces or something. I think their cake is stupid and though the adventure book is cute, a sign in book is worthless (though if you scroll down and read that comment from the lady who suggested that the guests put a thumb print on a sheet of paper to make it look like the balloons over the house that could be cute I feel like you guys could get away with finger painting at your wedding).
