Just a Few Ideas...

This morning the alarm didn't go off - I don't know if Geoff just didn't set it or if it was a clock malfunction. Either way, Ellen saved the day. Jon and Lauren were coming to our house to pick us up to make the 7 hour trip to Fairfax, Virginia for David and Lara's wedding. If it weren't for our little dog running circles on our bedroom floor this morning, we surely would have been late.

Tomorrow is the long awaited wedding day for David and Lara and we couldn't be more excited to shoot it. It seems like so long ago that they were getting engaged and we were shooting their engagement pictures!

Arriving at the hotel this afternoon made me appreciate the thought behind all of the details of wedding planning. We were welcomed upon check-in with a bag of fun stuff - a map, homemade cookies made by Lara's mom - Becky, bottled water, and a list of local restaurants. This is such a great idea to welcome out-of-towners and thank them for making the trip.

Also in the bag was an invitation to a dessert reception the night before the wedding in the atrium of the hotel. SUCH a great idea. For those of you who have yet to get married, trust me when I say that the day of the wedding is SO busy and will fly by in what seems like minutes. It is so hard to spend time with your guests as you are whisked around all day and night from one thing to the next. An arranged gathering the night before is brilliant, as it gives the bride and groom a chance to really spend time with their wedding guests.

Finally, I just had to share these stamps that Lara's mom had made for their invitations using one of David and Lara's engagement pictures. Cute idea, right?

Alright - it's off to bed I go - tomorrow will be here soon! :)
