And now it is time for a color scheme!

Eric took on an ambitious project of updating the website today! And now we have a color scheme! Woo woo! Very little changed in content, but the site just works better now, or something. He is in charge of computers. So where are we in terms of planning.... well, let's see. We are trying to get the floral details together. Hopefully flowers will be closer to done this coming week (I pray, it is my major headache right now). We also have to design the cake. We have some ideas in mind, but need to talk to the patisserie a bit more. Tasting of cake was accomplished in our most recent trip to Chicago. I haven't eaten that much cake in one sitting in a long time, if ever! I had my first dress fitting. I can't wait to go back and try it again after the alterations! Raul is the fittings god - he was great! Beyond that it is down to the nitty gritty....

chicago wedding reception dinner

we have our menu!

and we are VERY excited about it. especially after tasting enough food to feed the buffalo sabres....

wines

fife redhead red

geyser peak sauvignon blanc

salad --

heirloom tomatoes, maytag bleu cheese, apple-wood smoked bacon on a nifty bed of greens.

choice of: honey-thyme or balsamic vinaigrettes served tableside.

entree --

boneless breast of chicken filled with spinach, mushrooms, gruyere cheese in a wild mushroom essence. garlic mashed potatoes. green beans.

dessert --

white chiffon cake with tiramisu filling. coffee and tea.

 


we knew we had a winner with the salad. heirloom tomatoes and bacon. ROCK!

the entree... we originally struggled over this. we certainly have been to a number of weddings and we want to make sure everyone knows... this is NOT "wedding chicken". we were AMAZED by this chicken dish and we are VERY happy to have it. both alison and eric would order this at any restaurant!

the cake was a no-brainer. we tasted a TON of cake. and, although, we are not big cake eaters, this particular flavouring was something we immediately settled on.

So I'm official!! Just wanted to say that I have been perusing the website and have gotten a few good chuckles already. .... especially how you met.

Can't wait to party with you in Chicago!! It's been quite a while since I've seen the Big Sweaty Men!!

It's going be be a blast!!

Love,

Cathy

nyc party


we will be hosting an nyc par-tay on saturday 14 october 2006 starting at 600pm

new york city is a very special place for us and we want to share our wedding joy with as many folks as possible. what better way to do that than to have... a new york par-tay!

the dress code is: "hockey casual"

what is "hockey casual"? to start with, any hockey jersey is fully appropriate. we will have the sabres/rangers game on the tv. shorts always work. cargo shorts are best. long sleeve shirts with short sleeve shirts over them are good. the point is.... although this party will be CLASSY (trust me, the professional cleaners have been here for hours today and we spent all night, last night, rearranging the living room) -- we do not want people to feel like they have to dress up. come as you are!

And now it is time for an update......

I've been buried in my books for days. I am so very tired of studying. Today, for better or for worse, I took a bit of a break. It was a much needed break. Mostly because everytime I sit down with a gazillion multiple choice questions all that runs through my mind is that we really need to decide on invitations. So, today, I made that my mission. We finally, after many a discussion and many changes of minds, decided on an invitation, did all the wording, and got them ordered! Yeah, yeah..... i know - I always said we would print them ourselves. We would be creative. Well, frankly, who has that kind of time? They should be shipped sometime next week. Then the evil plan is to put Eric to work on addressing and stuffing and stamping and sealing and all that fun stuff. Keep him busy while I pour over a million more stupid bar prep questions. He is in bed. He will learn of my evil plan when he reads this like the rest of you! Ha HA Ha (that was my evil laugh). [But of course, I will help ;) ] So keep a look out in the mail! [continue reading.....]

we have a photographer!

Eric and I just spent a nice weekend in Chicago. We did menu tastings and interviewed photographers. The menu tastings were very very yummy. So much so that we still haven't made a decision. But we did decide on a photographer! One more thing is accomplished! So many things still to do. But since I have a simulated bar exam this Thursday and Friday, I am headed back to the books.

Long time no post

Sorry I disappeared for awhile. Been busy round these parts. So here is an update....

I had a wonderful weekend with my parents for my graduation. It was great to spend graduation day with good friends and family. The graduation itself was very long and tedious. But I managed to make it across the stage without tripping! And I now have my diploma in hand! Woo woo!

Spent this past weekend in OBX (that is the outer banks of North Carolina, for those of you who don't know) for a lovely wedding. Our friends kate and jim tied the knot in our fav vacation spot. I can't believe they pulled off such a beautiful wedding in such a short period of time. It gave me inspiration!

I am SO going to roast the groom. Bring marshmallows!

After Four Long Years ...

I am happy to tell everyone that law school is over! I am D.O.N.E!!!!!!! It has been a long long road, where I've dropped of the face of the planet and missed most of all of my friends. Thank you everyone for your support and patience. Graduation ceremony is the beginning of June. The dreaded bar exam is the end of July. Now, other than studying for the bar, I can return my focus to wedding planning! Woo woo!
