Tasting

We had our tasting this weekend, and what a great time!  We tried every appetizer, entree, and dessert option possible…it was delicious.  What was even better is we were able to come to decisions about what we wanted pretty quickly.  Our venue (which is also our caterer) has thought of everything and done an amazing job, I would recommend them to anyone (www.ctweddinggroup.com).  Here is a little menu preview with pics:

Our wedding website is up and running and I wanted to post it here for those of you who had the info on your magnets but probably went to jandjforever.com which, is hilariously not us…  Please visit:

YAY!  June 8th!

Engagement photos (part ii)

Julie just posted the second half of our engagement photos, and I’m in love with them!  These were taken on the Brooklyn Bridge, and though we look happy and lovely in them it was quite an adventure.  It was over 90 degrees, the balloons were the bane of Julie’s existence, and no one had eaten.  Silly problems I know, but not ideal for when you are supposed to look insanely happy to be together (ha!).  Here are some of the photos, the rest you can see at Julie’s full site here.

There are more on her site and more to come from other locations.  I feel so lucky to have Julie not only as my future family, but to know such a talented photographer!  Thank you again Jules for doing these, we never would have without you!

Then after a late late night, we did our engagement pictures with Julie all day!  I can’t wait to see them all!!  Check out her amazing photography here. She did send me one and without ruining her getting to share her work here is one…

After the long, hot, hot, hot, day of picture taking, we were off to dinner at 1 or 8 and out with friends for another late night.

Sunday, I got up and met Mom for some shopping in between Brooklyn and Flemington…little did I know we would end up finding my wedding dress!!!!!! I wish I could share pictures of it…it’s beyond perfect and I’m obsessed.  Mom (Dad too) thank you so much…so much.  I wish I could wear it everyday!

Here are some other pics from last week…
