Wedding Invitations

Invitations are printed, being addressed and will be sent out within the week. I am very lucky to have had Rachel Dunagan create my absolutely beautiful invitations. She is such a talented graphic artist who is getting into the wedding invitations market.

You can check out some more of her work at

Thanks Rachel for such an awesome job. I could not be happier.

Rehearsal Dinner

We have a location for the rehearsal dinner. I am so excited about the Ezell House. The courtyard is exactly what I had in mind. I can not download any pictures, so click on the link to see pictures and read about the Ezell House. The Ezell House is typical Mobile architecture and I can not wait to celebrate with my friends and family there!!

Victor Russell

Last, but not least. I present Victor. He and Ben were college roomates, golf buddies and drinking buddies. Victor has got to be Ben's most handy friend. He is always working on something, be it his house, car, lawn mower, etc. Victor is currently employed on a oil rig out in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico. He is the only friend of Ben that would be able to handle a job out in the middle of the Gulf. He is a loving husband to Hilary who will travel all around the world with her! Thanks Victor for being a part of our wedding.

McClain Towery
The first time I met McClain was the same night that I met Ben. He happened to be in town visiting for a few days and hanging out with the guys downtown. I really did not get to know McClain until he moved to Nashville and met the love of his life Jacqueline. Over the past 3 years Ben and I have always enjoyed going to Nashville to visit with McClain and Jacqueline. At times we have had so much fun that we have contemplated moving to Nashville. McClain is a wonderful husband, a smart engineer, an early bird, a lover of red wine, an Auburn Tiger Fan and Mr Directions man. We are looking forward to celebrating our big day with McClain and Jacqueline.


I was just informed that I left off two groomsmen from my "Get to know the Wedding Party". My apologies to McClain and Victor. It was me being absent minded and nothing else. So, without further ado, I present the boys.

Ben and I finally registered this past weekend. It was a lot more overwhelming than I thought it would be. We had a good time and registered for some great items. Of course Ben had complete control of the gun.
We still have a little more to do and hopefully can finish that this week so I can check it off my list of To Do.

Pink Peonies - Bouquet Idea

Still trying to get bouquet ideas. I love the color of this bouquet, but I think I want mine to be a little more loose than this particular bouquet. Getting close.

3 Months

Holy Cow. 3 months until the big day. Oh dear, let the stress begin. Here is a list of things to do:

Your Wedding Checklist: Two to three months before your wedding____
Give a list of "Must Take" photographs to your wedding photographer____
Discuss your wedding menu with your caterer____
Meet with your officiant to discuss the wedding ceremony____
Attend any bridal showers____
Mail your wedding invitations____
Think about your hair and makeup - If you're doing your own, try out hairstyles, purchase any extra makeup, think about having a "makeover party" with your girlfriends.____
Book your hairstylist and/or makeup artist, if you're using them. Meet with each of them to experiment with styles and colors____
Schedule your wedding rehearsal and rehearsal dinner____
If your state requires it for a marriage license, make blood test appointments____
If you're going to change your name, complete those documents____
Send wedding announcements to local newspapers

Just to name a few.....
