David booked our Honeymoon this weekend!

But, before I tell you where we are going...I will tell you how we chose this location...

I feel like most people go somewhere tropical, beautiful, and relaxing on their honeymoon. Although this does sound tempting, we are not "beach" people. We started out in search of a location by looking at all the typical honeymoon spots...Hawaii, Jamaica, cruises, and of course Sandals. These were perfect, but not us. 
Reasons Why:
1.) I am the whitest person on the planet (thanks mom, lol!) and I would fry in the first 10 minutes and then be miserable the rest of the week. Not okay. 
2.) We would be so bored. We are not the type of people who could be content just lying around, we love to go out and do things!
3.) We are such tourists! We both grew up going to Branson every year (which is so weird because everyone hates Branson) and we love doing all the cheesy, touristy attractions. night, David calls me up and says, " Would you absolutely hate having a honeymoon at Disneyworld?"


We are meant to be. seriously.

So we decided to go to Disneyworld, which is still tropical and romantic....but also cheesy and touristy. Perfect. 

Also, we are having a TWO week honeymoon. It's okay, you can be jealous. 
David's mom just happens to have this timeshare condo thing in Florida that is free for a week so we will be staying there the first week and just relaxing and enjoying being married...then the second week will be an all-inclusive Disney Honeymoon package at the Caribbean resort. 

This means:
1.) A beautiful resort to stay in on the beach.
2.) 7 day park hopper passes to ALL the parks including the water ones. 
3.) 3 meals a day at any restaurant on Disney property at any price. 
4.) Magic.

It's also pretty cool because we got engaged at Disneyland and we are having our honeymoon at Disneyworld!

So, needless to say...David called and took care of it all this weekend (what a good fiance) and he still has some surprises in store that he won't tell me about!

Now I just have to wait 8 months....

We have a location!!!

So it has finally happened...we got the OK on our location and we couldn't be more relieved. 

Drumroll please.......

We will be tying the knot at OC in Judd Theatre and the reception will be held in the conservatory/art gallery. Perfect. 

I have wanted to get married in a Theatre ever since I started dreaming of my wedding. It fits us so well since we both are really involved in music and theatre and it's at OC so it's close to our hearts and our friends!

Now that we have gotten that figured out finally (Thanks again Bob Lashley, you are a girl's hero), it's on to the fun part....decorations and details!

I don't really have a "theme" for our wedding...I just know what I like. 

Here are some inspirational pictures I have found while waiting forever to get the green light on our venue.

I absolutely LOVE this! This is a must have! I love the idea of having a photo booth...but they are soooo I found this and thought it was an even better alternative! I want to have a photo wall with pictures of us and our family and then cutouts for guests to take cute pictures, huh?

Cute, simple, earthy, peacock feather centerpieces. love them. 

More elaborate, but still simple, chic, and natural centerpieces. I will never be able to decide. 
I like too many things....

We will have a candy buffet!! I love this idea and I think it's such a cute favor. I also want to label the jars with whose favorite candy it is...whether it be ours or our parents or siblings!

I honestly don't really like any of this that much...but it's the colors we are using so I put it on here.
