I am so excited!! We just put the deposite down yesterday! It is actually feeling real now and on May 25,2008 I am getting married! As long as it doesn''t rain we will be getting married in a walled rose garden with a lily pond in the center and our reception will be in a covered verandah. Plus the location is less than 10 munites from my house, so that should cut down on the stress factor. I guess I am really excited because I really feel like a bride now. It is tough for us long engagement girls but now it is all comming together. Here are some pics!

It does feel more real now. It was so hard whenever we told anyone we were engaged but didn''t even have a date or location to tell when they asked, which they always do. Now I finally have some answers!

Thanks Dani! That''s part of the reason I chose it. The location is very southern and, although I don''t consider myself a southern girl (I am a Cali girl at heart!), when in Rome... I really like the laid back feel though. The rose garden is my favorite part too. I am just so excited! Thanks for the comments everyone!

Thanks so much you guys! I really do love the southern charm and I think I am going to really embrace it and have a southern garden type wedding. I think it will turn out great, especially since we will have guests coming from all over the country.

Gypsy- It is called Alwyngton Manor in Warrenton, VA which is where I live. It is probably too far outside of D.C. from what you wanted before. About 45min SW of the city. I know things have been changing with you lately. Are you still thinking about having the wedding out here? I really hope the planning goes smoothly for you. You deserve it!

Indecisive, congratulations!!! That is wonderful and the site looks so pretty! I''m happy for you. I think finding the site is the biggest/most stressful part of the planning (or at least it''s been that way for me). I haven''t booked yet but felt so much relief when I found my place.
