Wedding-y Goodness

Where have I been, you ask? Planning a wedding! Whew, its lots of work...and so much fun! I wanted to share a little sneak peek of all the wonderfulness to come, so, for those of you who are coming to the wedding, act surprised! Our colors will be Robins Egg, Grass, Pumpkin, & Chocolate. We have chosen The Barr Mansion & Artisan Ballroom for the ceremony and reception. Its gorgeous, and happens to be a green facility.

  8. Local, local, local - from vegetables to curtain rods
  9. 100% post-consumer paper from Austin's waste stream for office
