Update Time

I realize I've been neglecting my blog since I've been engaged so here's a little update on what we've gotten accomplished in the last 3 weeks.

  • bought a dress
  • decided on a date (Oct. 17)
  • took announcement pictures
  • ordered invitations
  • registered at Target and Bed Bath & Beyond
  • bought potential bridesmaids dresses
  • chose a reception location
  • hired a decorator
  • hired a caterer
  • bought a guest book
  • my parents met Ben's parents
  • found groomsmen vests
  • meeting with cake lady tonight
In only 3 weeks we've gotten so much done but I feel like the list is never ending. Our top 3 things to get done next is to find a photographer, someone to do flowers, and find a place to live in Mesa. If you or anyone you know can help with these it would be much appreciated.

Troy Brinkerhoff is a fantastic photographer...so amazing.
I am using a lady named Michelle from "Michelle's Designs". Her flower shop is on Power and Main St. She is super good and really inexpensive.
Ted and I just got an apartment on Stapley and the US-60. They are luxury apartments that usually go for $800 a month, but they are having a special right now where you get 2 months free and rent for $599 a month! We love our apartment! It is super cute.

Where is your reception going to be at?

Thank you Brittany, for pointing that out. How about a new blog title? Ben and Cathy?? Cathy and Ben? October's First Wedding?

Wow, I'm impressed with how much you've gotten acomplished already. I know of a traveling photographer who is very talented and inexpensive. Here is the link to his website: http://izlas.com/
It sure would be fun to live in the same apartment complex as Ted and Lauren...
I don't think I'll be able to come to your wedding :( since I'll be flying to one in OKC two weeks before that. Sad.

Things are moving right along. Our photographer's name was Twila-don't know her last name so I am no much help. Good luck!
