The planning...

Well it took all of about 10 minutes for the planner in me to take over. Immediately I started talking about dates, venues, guest list, decor, and so on. Shane totally went along with it. (he is a planner at heart) I think he will be a very involved groom.  I tried  not to be too crazy, but I could not stop planning in my head. As soon as we got home, I did our budget, called the one venue that I like (in hopes that it will work) and booked our photographer. It was so hard to pick a photographer because I have about 5 favorites. I love them all so much. Each one has a very photo journalistic approach to their photography but they are all also very different. It came down to, Steph Carson, Tine Hoffman, Cindy Wagner, Bob White, and Daniel Michael. All of these people are down right awesome so this was hard for me. Especially since it is one of the most important things to me.  After thinking long and hard I chose Steph Carson. I love Steph. I love everything about this woman! She is an AMAZING photographer, so truly gifted. Plus she is also a super cool woman! I really should try to spend some off the job time with her. She is that cool. I am so excited to have her on my team of vendors. Well I am excited that she is my team... I have not booked anyone else.
This Saturday we will be touring Boost for our venue. (see I waste no time) We decided that we can keep our guest list low in order to accommodate an awesome venue. Boost is not a huge venue but it has a rooftop deck overlooking Cincinnati, so we shall see. Also Jenny at Boost told me they may close or move due to the stupid casino they are building downtown. UGH! I will be so sad. I so want a lofty type venue for this wedding reception.


  1. I've been dying to tour Boost... you'll have to let me know what it's like. And you are right... you can't beat a rooftop deck!

  2. You definitely should go check it out. I have put it off because never have a wedding that it would hold. The max is 114 for a seated dinner. BUT it is AMAZING!!!!
