    1. Engagement Date: September 19, 2008--My Birthday 2. Wedding Date: June 11, 2010. Such a long engagement! I am currently in Minneapolis for graduate school so we had to wait until I was done and moved back to SD (in December) and we both wanted a summer wedding. 3. Dark purple (eggplant-ish), chocolate brown, and ivory4. Ceremony Site: Holy Spirit Catholic Church--Sioux Falls5. Reception Site: Holiday Inn City Centre--downtown SF6. Photographer: We just booked Studio Blu...a definite splurge for us but I am so excited!!! 7. DJ: Don't know yet! I have looked into BPM productions and have heard great things about DJ Jer...I would love any suggestions! (Anyone know the price range for DJ Jer?)8. Flowers: Haven't even met with a florist but I would love dark purple calla lillies for my bouquet and ivory callas for the bridesmaids. I'm thinking these may be out of our buget however. 9. I have a whole bunch lined up...pretty much all DIY. We are planning to use relative's wedding pictures also...our grandparents and parents for on the guest book table.

    Hey, Well He proposed 11/13/2010 which is his birthday. Were planning a wedding for June 9,2012; we choosed that date because the numbers are all factors of 3 (3 &13 are our lucky numbers because he asked me out and proposed to me on a 13th day and the promising ring I recieved has 3 diamonds on it and my wedding ring also has 13 diamonds) June is also my grandmother birthday month. We have decided on yellows, oranges, and reddish/pinks. We decided on the Watertown Event Center for our Reception site, still working on a ceremony cite! Jocelyn Photography in Watertown. Energy Productions for our DJ/lighting. and FLowers...still deciding. Thinking about doing something in honor of our families since we both come from quite large families.
