    Here's a preview of the At-Home Reception on the Chesapeake Bay in Pasadena, Maryland (on Sat., August 14th) planning I have been doing so far (a full planning thread will be coming for that closer to the date):

    Here is the dress I will be having shorted to just below the first group of ribbons at the knee to wear at the AHR:

    Our venue is the Bay Ballroom at Kurtz's Beach -- I wanted something near a large body of water, so the guests can feel like they're having a mini-getaway (please excuse the rainy day the pics were taken):

    View of behind the head table:

    The high-ceiling, octagonal shaped ballroom:

    The buffet service area:

    The view of the Chesapeake Bay from the patio -- a horizon filled with water!

    Click the image to open in full size.

    Here is the cake I will be having, made by Fiona's Cakes and Pastries in Maryland:

    Click the image to open in full size.

    * (2) tiers will be Tiramisu cake with mascarpone filling
    * (1) tier will be classic red velvet cake with cream cheese filling
    * (1) tier will be white cake with chocolate ganache and fresh strawberry filling
    * The entire cake will be covered in Italian Meringue buttercream -- yum!

    Again, a full Planning Thread for my AHR will be up closer to August!

    HUGE HUGS AND THANKS to EVERYONE here on the most amazing wedding forum out there -- I honestly couldn't have done it without you all!

    Now, here we come, JAMAICA!!!
