Hi, this is Katie's mom posting this time. Ever since Tony King (see prior posting) gave us the photo of the wedding flowers, I've had new inspiration. I've been trying to recreate that look on the magazine and I think I've FINALLY found what Katie is looking for, but I'm not sure I should show it to her...lol! The "garden roses" I found are beautiful, but I've never worked with them before. And they are more expensive (of course). Katie initially wanted peonies, and well, if you know peonies, they bloom in the spring and getting them in August well....over the top. So I guess that's why Katie has been so indecisive about her bouquet. So, I guess, I'm telling her huh? Well I guess she will see them the next time she looks at the blog...wonder how long that will take? Katie what do you think?

TONY KING Bridal Alterations came with excellent references--but getting to Tony's loft studio in downtown Cincinnati was a bit tricky-- so Isaac came to our rescue and took me, Danielle, and my mom. Tony was absolutely great-- I loved him and his studio. He not only took care of my dress, but gave me a great idea for my bouquet---nope---still haven't decided definately on what I want--it's driving my mom crazy since she will be making it. BUT, the picture that Tony gave me is exactly what I want..I think! Isn't it beautiful?

Thanks to all of the wonderful women at my church (Mulberry Wesleyan Church) I had my first shower on May 17th. It was a lot of fun and beautiful. Barb and Michelle did an excellent job putting together my shower. Barb did a great spread and prepared a couple of fun games and prizes for everyone, while Michelle took care of the decorating. Morgan, my new little sister, (sister in law) is the cutie sitting next to me. She was my special helper at the shower. I really enjoyed that afternoon having fellowship with everyone. I want to say "Thank you" to everyone for coming and for all the wonderful gifts, Isaac and I really appreciated them. I know Isaac and I both hope to see you all at the wedding!

Now you can find links to our registries on the blog! Just click to go straight to lists of what we need (and want) to start our new life. It was really hard to decide what to pick. Actually, I had a couple panicky feelings when I thought that this stuff would most likely be with me for a very long time. Luckily, Isaac was there to encourage me to lighten up. Registering is supposed to fun, right?

Our guestbook is not your average signature log. We decided to use an actual book by Mick Hales, Gardens Around the World: 365 Days. I hope everyone will enjoy browsing the many lovely pictures of gardens when they sign in. Unlike other guestbooks, this one won't be out of place if it sits on a coffee table after the wedding.
