Wedding Preparations: 106 Days!

Summer is moving quickly. My phone reminded me this morning that we have just over 100 days until our big day! When Raymond proposed, we picked a date over a year out thinking that was plenty of time to save and plan. Funny how time can play tricks on you...

In the last couple months we attended two very important graduation ceremonies (both siblings), took fabulous engagement photos thanks to Jade Street Photography, and I was promoted to the Marketing and Development Director at the Museum of World Treasures. This has been an exciting year of change and opportunity.

Raymond will tell you I spent weeks planning our engagement session. We've been very low-key and relaxed about all of the other wedding plans so far. I wanted this session to be creative, show our love of travel, and convey the joy and happiness of our wedding adventure. We were thrilled with our photographer and I'm excited she will be shooting the wedding as well! See the rest of the photos in our album here.

That's us, always dreaming up a new adventure.

I absolutely adore this red bike!

Raymond bought me this parasol at the Japanese Festival in St. Louis the day he proposed.

Where in the world will we go next?
We agreed early on in the planning process that we want a small, intimate, and affordable wedding. This means the guest list is almost exclusively family. We wish we could invite everyone who has touched our lives and our relationship (hundreds!), but we hope you understand our decision to be financially conservative about the day. It's very important to us to start our marriage in a healthy financial place instead of thousands of dollars of debt. Still, we would love to share the wedding fun with you through photos and updates. If you would like to know more, please visit our wedding website here.

Until next time --
