We finalised the menu for the reception last week after attending a tasting at the hotel. We ate our way through a good proportion of the selections — such a chore! 😉 — and made what we think are awesome food and wine choices.
The invitations also just arrived from the printer, so we’re making a start on mailing them out shortly. In preparation, we’ve added additional information to the Venue page, as well as a whole new Travel Information section.
RSVP and Gift Registry pages are also now online.
Peter and I made a lot of decisions on vendors today, and we accomplished a ton of wedding planning. We have interviewed and visited with several vendors and these are our top choices:
Kellie Saunders Photography
Mike Staff Productions – Videography
Perfect Day Celebrations – Officiant
Blumz by JRDesigns – Florist
Karagosian – Jeweler
Rondo String Quartet – Ceremony music
Once we get the contracts approved and deposits made, we’ll be well on the way to having this day planned. We were able to find Peter a wedding band and confirm the design for mine. Next up, Peter needs to shop for his wedding outfit. We also need to get formal invitations printed and mailed.
Stay tuned for more updates!
We are pleased to announce that we have selected our wedding venue! We will be married on Sunday, September 18th 2016 at The Dearborn Inn. Please see our Venue page for further details.
Here’s our engagement announcement from the (London) Daily Telegraph, published on January 8th.
We appeared just below the Royal Family, of course ;o)
We also appeared in the Detroit News and Free Press on January 2nd:
We’re launching our wedding website today!
Plans are moving forward very fast. Carrie has already found her dress (and I’m the only one not allowed to see it, grr!) and we may well have found our wedding venue and date, later this year. We’ll be announcing that shortly once we have the contract signed.
Please check in with us again soon!
