Our Soon-to-be Photographer


We're really looking forward to working with photographer, Geoff Johnson. In his words, "Cool. I'm often booked by creative types... love it". Have a look at his site. He's pretty creative and versatile.

Rehearsal Dinner at Local?


We're thinking about having the rehearsal dinner at Local11ten, a great little restaurant on Bull Street a block up from Forsythe Park. Heck, after that we could all head over next door to the Legion and get $1 drinks for the ladies (assuming the rehearsal dinner could have been on a Thursday).

I'm Thinking Tan for the Men


For the Groomsmen: Although tan's a more summery choice, I think it will be a lot gentler in Ashby's Garden and will blend well with the Tiffany Blue and Poppy Red of the gals.

For the Wedding Cake: Bluebirds


I have always loved bluebirds especially during the ridiculously cold winters of my college days in Gambier, Ohio. Imagine a piercing blue sky, bleached corn husks covered in blinding snow, and then the diving of bluish-violet feathers. It's a sight I will never forget. My fellow and I are big fans of Mr. Audubon and quite aptly, the bluebird happens to be New York's State bird. On Etsy: Pair of Ceramic Birds - Peking Turquoise Blue Crackle Glaze

For Mom's Cherry Cheese Tarts


Many, many years our lovely little cherry tree in the backyard delighted us around my April birthday with its pinkish white papery blossoms only to yield the most tart, sour cherries late in June. My sister, Melanie and I labored to pit these lustrous beauties.... but the rewards! : homemade cherry pies, preserves, and best of all, cherry cheese tarts. These little cupcake wrappers will do the trick and you will all leave wanting the recipe, I promise.

More Invitation Inspiration


It's getting more difficult to narrow down my choices. I really like this etsy shop: By Invitation Only and love her color combinations and choices of mixed palette envelopes.

Playing Catch-Up


Happy Easter! I find it quite unbelievable that so much time has passed since my last entry (much to the consistent reminders of my sisters). It's *finally* Spring here on Geoje Island and with the fresh air comes streets lined with cherry blossoms and a bit more time to work on nuptials. As you can imagine, planning a wedding is one thing, planning it from the other side of the world is another creature altogether.
