NYC Preview

29 Feb

We went to New York City this past weekend for a quick engagement photo shoot.  The weekend before I had gone through Craigslist to find photographers in the area with the hope of having something sooner rather than later.  Thanks to our luck in finding Sam & Gertie Photography and our reserve of Amtrak Guest Rewards points, we were able to make a quick trip.

Dina, the wonderful wonderful photographer, sent us a few preview photos.

I’ve linked photos I’ve found to the original blog posts.

I like letters

18 Feb

In general, I just like the idea of letters spelling something out.  As someone who was in a sorority, I appreciate the availability of wooden letters at a local Michael’s store.  Thank you Michael’s store…for making big/lil week that much more expensive/creative.


I could see this around in a place or two.  We might have to spray paint letters silver or white but I like them.  Depends on how everything else gets put together.

We ended up going with Wedding Paper Divas.  They had decent prices for some beautiful invitations AND excellent customer service.
