I just booked my pretty little pink parish church for us! I''m so excited... It''s official, we''re getting married on August 2nd 2008 at 11AM! I''ve called the reception venue, photographer and singer and they''re holding our date until our appointments next week. By Friday next week, all our major vendors will be booked. Yay!

I thought I''d post pictures of our venues for your viewing pleasure...
Coming up!

Here''s the church... It''s a shame the inside pics are so dark. It''s so pretty, with pink and green and white.

Here''s the reception venue. It''s a sugar shack, it has a wonderful mix of chic and rustic... I love it! It''s in my hometown.









I grew up in those hills you can sort of guess in the background there...

NYCsparkle - Thanks!

MustangFan - We had been planning on a hotel at first for the reception, and I''m so happy we changed... It''s wonderful! 08-08-08 is a great date! I hope you become an August 08 bride like me.
BTW, I''ve been meaning to ask you: Is the sapphire in your avatar yours? It''s amazing!


so_happy - Thank you! I''m beside myself with happiness. I''ve been trying to study for a midterm tomorrow, but I just can''t concentrate... We''re getting married!

sumbride - I hope it will! I''m so happy to have that done, I wish the wedding was sooner now!


AmberWaves - I can''t wait... I''m thrilled.

FG - The gazebo on the water is what sold it to me. I LOVE water. I saw the pic and said: "We''re having our reception THERE."


kcoursolle - I''m very attached to my church. I will have had all my sacraments there!
With a little luck (he may be on holiday
), the priest who will have confirmed me will be our officiant.

bee - Thanks. Well, I took a deep breath and did what I had to do... I''ll probably do some more after dinner. Thanks for the support, though.


sk8rjen - Good thing I''m doing it so soon too! August 2nd was the only free Saturday left at the reception hall for August 2008!
It''s a very popular place, apparently a lot of people from Montreal and from Ontario come all the way here to get married there. Its classy but rustic feel is very sought after... The church, photographer and singer are also free on that date, so it''s a go.

Aw, that''s a shame, robbie...
I''m very lucky to live in such a beautiful area. And I don''t think Québec has been dubbed "la Belle Province" for nothing...


Good news! The lady from the church called, and my priest will be back from his vacation in time for our wedding!
We could have gotten another priest, but I really wanted him to do it. He confirmed me and blessed our engagement.

Anchor! OH MY GOD. I NEEEED that church! Seriously, what is your home town? I love it. Love the sugar shack idea. Knowing the tradition, and the style, it suits you perfectly. Too bad it will be summer and there won''t be any sugar

Aw, I''m so touched ladies!


RoseAngel - I do feel awesome. It''s so real all of a suddenly, and it really hit me that we''re getting married!!


zoebartlett - It makes me happy to share those things with you PS girls... The people around me overdose after 5 minutes, even my super involved FI, so it''s nice to see people who are excited for me.

sarie_j - It''s so nice to finally have something officially done. The wedding pics will have to wait, though, 17 months left...


indecisive - I''m literally bouncing all over the place... I''m usually a very calm and quiet person, so my roommates are like ''What''s up with her?'' lol


DandiAndi - I''m counting down the days... 519 left! lol

Ally - Thanks! It''s a small town called Prévost, about 45 minutes north from Montréal when you take the 15 North. It''s really a lovely church, the pics don''t do it justice! I had a concert there once with the city band I play in, and everyone said it was the cutest church they had ever seen. Too bad it doesn''t have an organ... Here are the links: church and cabane à sucre
