Just wanted to introduce myself! I'm Maria and my FI is Brandon and we were engaged on 6-8-09 in Hawaii. We finally have decided on an August 2011 wedding (obviously!).
Why so long of an engagement? Well, I finish grad school in May of this year and we are planning a wedding 3000 miles away from where we live now (California). We are both from and our families still reside in Virginia, so naturally, we'd like to have our wedding there. We just found our perfect venue this weekend at a vineyard and are finally ready to start working on the details.
Looking forward to getting to know all of you! Happy Planning!
