Wedding Updates...

Zack and I still have about a year and four months till we say "I do."  Our wedding will be held on April 13, 2013.  However, I have managed to accomplish a few pre-wedding tasks.

(If you aren't into all things wedding -- STOP reading here).  

First and foremost, I found a dress.  For all the newly engaged ladies out there, Charlotte has some amazing bridal boutiques.  My dress was purchased at J Major's, but there are many options in all price ranges in boutiques around the city!

I then hired a photographer.  I hired the amazing Kristin Vining of KVP.  She is the absolute best and one of my "must-haves."  Along with her, I hired the fabulous stylist/make-up guru/ hair aficionado Lindsey Regan Thorne.  Girls, if you need two new blogs to follow, Kristin and Lindsey's are great!  This spring we should have engagement photos shot and styled by these two ladies...can't wait!

Last, but certainly not least, I found a venue to hold this shindig.  It will be in Downtown, Charlotte at the newly opened Foundation for the Carolinas.  Here are a few photos.  The Foundation houses a beautiful modern art museum.  If you are looking for a day out in Charlotte, it is a great place to visit and it is FREE to all visitors.  We still have to dot the i's and cross the t's on the contract, but that should be done by the 1st of January.  We thought this place would allow for all our guests to have "too much fun" and walk home to their hotels.       

I have yet to pick my "colors."  There are too many options on the color wheel. 

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!  We split our time between Charlotte and God's Country (as Zack calls it) in Duplin County.  More about our adventures later...(and maybe a video of Zack singing too).

Off to take down the Christmas decor...
