drop it like it’s hot

It’s official!  We’re getting married!

Yeah it’s been official for awhile but it’s really, really offic now because we dropped 100 wedding invitations in the mail.  They are on their way to mailboxes all over the country.

And even one to Japan!  (As if I have to prove it.)

This is happening!

It’s go-time now with just a few months left of planning.  The engagement period sure has flown by.  Although we’ve been engaged since April, we didn’t start planning until September so I guess that’s why.

But you know what has been our hands down favorite part of wedding planning?

Cake tasting.  Duh.

carrot cake

Over the holidays, we visited a local bakery and sampled flavor after flavor of divine cake.  We ultimately settled on the rich and buttery pound cake but it was a tough choice!

We took home lots of samples.  Trust me when I say none of this went to waste.  What wedding dress?

Ryan and I had a fun time touring the bakery’s kitchen.

whisks

Of course I saw these industrial sized whisks and imagined them repurposed into pendant lights.  But that’s just me.

Has this post made you hungry now too?

  1. I hope you are enjoying planning the wedding! I loved planning my March 2012 nuptuals. I hope you have many years of happiness!!!!!

    On a side note, the glass pieces I bought from the Brick and Mortar look smashing on my mantle. I filled the compote with lid with some ground coffee (soil) and a bird’s nest with faux eggs.
