I'm dreaming of a....

... neutral winter wedding!

I'm so excited to say that I've nailed down my wedding colors! People keep asking me and I give them a list of 10 colors with names they do not know (sorry guys!) so here is a visual for those who do not know what "cognac" is ;)

Follow this link to my wedding color board so you can see all my visual inspiration:

Here's the image that I drew the majority of my color inspiration from.

We're having our reception in the Old Courthouse of our home town, which was built in 1875 and retains the majority of it's old character. I'm just in love with the building and I want my wedding to reflect that antique feel. The rooms are painted black with beautiful white moldings so I want my color palette to reflect the neutral feel of the place as well. Just talking about it makes me get so giddy!!!
I'll be going home for Christmas break soon so hopefully I can pop in and take a few pictures of the space to post on here. But until then, you can see a tiny picture of the exterior in my wedding color board on theknot.com.

375 Days! (Ha!)



Yep, you heard right.

KEVIN AND I ARE ENGAGED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Wednesday before Thanksgiving, Kevin took me down to the church where we grew up, told me he knew when he was thirteen (and at this very church) that he was going to marry me one day, and got down on one knee!!! 
It was so perfect! 
I, of course, said yes over and over again :)

And life has been so amazing and busy these past few months, that I had to take a break from blogging. But I never stay away too long. I'm back with a WHOLE NEW MISSION!

To help friends and family know what's going on with the wedding planning, I'm temporarily going to turn this into my WEDDING BLOG!

Honestly, I've wanted to do this for a very long time because I'm a little obsessed with all things wedding planning. I just love all the personal design people can incorporate into the day they declare their love for one another.  As you can tell from my blog roll, I gain lots inspiration from other wedding blogs, so of course, I would like to have my own. :)

But don't worry, I'll still be posting other non-wedding related things dealing with art and design.

So yes, get ready for it people!!!
