Hey Mr. DJ

Mike and I meet with our dj, David, last night and now I’m even more excited. We threw out a bunch of great music suggestions to get the party started and keep it going throughout the night.

Remember to make any music requests on our wedding website, here.

23 days!

Party On!

Mike and I want to extend our wedding day as long as possible.  In that spirit we’ve planned an after-party just one block away from the National Hotel.

Today I finalized plans with Louie from Studio @ The Shelborne Hotel. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Studio it’s a SUPER fun karaoke bar with over 55,000 songs on file and all sorts of instruments on the walls.

Get those vocal cords ready for some singing!!! (Of course if you don’t sing you can be a back up dancer, play one of the musical instruments, or just sing and laugh from the crowd).

Here are Mike and Jeff jamming at Studio the night we celebrated our engagement.

From Thanksgiving Weekend / Engagement

No driving or changing necessary. We’re all literally going as we are – either walking or a short taxi ride as soon as the reception is over. Email me if you have questions or want more details.

Sneak Peak – Vanessa & Mike

We finally got a sneak peak of our engagement photo session from our photographers…and the verdict is that WE LOVE THEM! Of course, there are some we’re not crazy about but we do like the majority. I can’t wait to see the whole lot of photos they took and figure out how to incorporate them into our wedding.

What do you think?

I'm on a boat!

Invites sealed and ready to mail

So our calligraphied envelopes arrived today along with something we had reprinted for the invitations. Of course, as soon as I opened the box I couldn’t help myself and began stuffing envelopes.  So, two hours later all of our guests had thier invites packed and ready to go.

Mike and I are checking addresses tomorrow just to make sure they all arrive at thier destinations and so we should be sending them out by end of week.

Putting invites in the mail definitely makes everything seem more real…
