We will be getting married at the beautiful Royal Playa del Carmen in the gazebo and then our reception on the beach. OMG I canâ€™t wait!!
My FI proposed on a beautiful summer day in July 2009. He had an entire day planned for me including a vineyard tour, breakfast in bed, flowers. After all his hard work, he didnâ€™t get it done the way he wanted, but we made it home and he proposed in the same park we go to almost everyday to walk our dogs. It was so special because it was it was our place and with our puppies. He couldnâ€™t have planned it better!!
My E-ring and wedding band, custom made by him. . .he's awesome!!
His ring, by the same jeweler
We sent out save the date cards with all our travel information on it and some of our engagement pics. Sorry no pic!!
Here are my invites, almost completely DIY. The cardstock from Archivers. We printed it ourselves and made the RSVP cards as well out of cardstock

We got his cotton suit from Jos A Banks. It is a light gray and he will wear a plain white shirt, unbuttoned, underneath. He will wear black sandals also from zappos. Sorry the goofy face!!
His gift for our legal day is a book I made from mypublisher.com of our trip to Europe. This is such a neat website, I loved making it!!
I will give him this card on our wedding day, these are our two dogs. Also printed from mypublisher.com
His real gift is a book of BD photos done by a lady here in Omaha. These turned out really well and I am so happy I did this. A real confidence booster. Here are some shots from the book, sorry so crappy but she didnâ€™t give me any teasers. . . boo!
The gifts to the groomsmen were their outfits including shirt, linen pants and flipflops. Linen pants from Dillards, shirts from Kohls and shoes from zappos.
