Having the week off has given me a lot of time for research. Today I have spent most of my time dedicated to finding a photographer for our engagement photos. Many wedding packages come with an engagement session included but because we will be doing a destination wedding we needed to find someone closer to home just for the engagement session. After looking at photographer after photographer I think I have found the winner. Amy Carroll, check out her blog she just started with fellow photographer Jen from JK Photography.
Amy's style is very fresh and casual. I like that there is an element of fun to all of her photos. Here are a few examples of her engagement photos:
I thought this engagment photo was so cute
I am getting really excited about our engagement photos because we are planning to use one of the images for our save the dates. It also doesnt help that I am finding a ton of cute clothes at J.Crew this season that are perfect for engagement photos! Here are a few of my favorite pieces from J.Crew's newest collection:
The Kate Dress (how appropriate)

Here is one of the places we are looking at for our reception site. We are trying to find a place that is easily accessible for everyone and also encompasses D & I's love of big cities, water, and nature. We also knew we wanted to do a destination wedding, Destination in the sense that we wanted a smaller, casual family affair where everyone could relax and enjoy themselves and each other while they are there. It has been so hard to find something that has everything we want (I truthfully don't think it exist...) but from pictures I think it is pretty close. It has the exposed brick which is my signature element in almost all of my designs and it also seems like it is a blank slate that I can put my stamp on and make it truly D & I. We won’t know for sure until we go visit in a couple of week. What do you think??
Leave some feedback for me :)

I am in love with Jonathan Adler and have been even more since visiting his studio in San Fran. Here are some images of his pottery that I love. D and I have been talking about how to incorporate a few of them into the wedding so let me know if you have any ideas!
I also love this idea for using our initials!

It has the waterfront preppy & casual feel that I want, now all it needs is a little pink in it :)
