happy weekend!

^^ Dave drew this monogram for our invites. I'm in love!

This weekend Dave and I have some wedding-oriented tasks to work on. We're getting our engagement pictures done, shopping for wedding bands, finalizing the groomsmen suits and getting the invitations ready to mail out on Monday. Hopefully we'll be able to fit in some much-needed relaxing!

What are you doing this weekend?

My favorite season.
The temperature outside may be 85 degrees, but that doesn't stop me from enjoying the leaves crunching under my feet.
All of this...

Makes my heart happy.
I'm so go to a football game with brother at his dress up for put on tights and get to wear my scarves and hats and drive to the mountains and pick see the changing of the drive my convertible in the cool, crisp stuff myself at Thanksgiving...and to marry my best friend in the heart of the season <3

Wedding stuff... {Dave, do not read this post}

Wedding prep has been going really well! I'm such an organization freak, I have everything outlined and scheduled, with lists to tell me what to and when to do it - and we're still 64 days out! 

I just received my veil in the mail and went for my second dress fitting. Oh my word, friends, it's coming together so well! I'm a little nervous about sharing pictures on here, just in case David decides to look at our blog...but I'm like 99.9999% sure my dear fiancee won't look...sooo here's a sneak peek for my blog readers!! 

My dress is still in the alterations phase and needs a couple other details fixed. But I am SO in love with it. I bought the original dress for almost nothing at a consignment shop, knowing that it needed a lot of work. I've invested in an AMAZING seamstress to make all the adjustments for me. It was "the" moment for me...realizing that I had the dress of my dreams.
My veil:

It's a chapel length drop veil with a blusher, with a floral crown. I never thought I'd be a veil person...but the idea of the magic behind it and the fact that its as totally BRIDAL made it irresistible.

I don't want to give TOO much I better stop here. Though I'm dying to talk about all of my plans! I guess you'll have to wait for wedding pictures!
Oh and PS here's our wedding website: David and Elisa
Much love!
