Wedding Flowers

Thursday, June 10th, 2010

Flowers were another one of my favorite things to pick out for our wedding. Zachary and I decided to work with my multi-talented neighbor, Rick, across the street for the bouquets and boutineers. We met with Rick on a Wednesday afternoon at what turned out to basically be a giant fridge. Rick, Zachary and I […]

Kohl’s Registry

Wednesday, May 5th, 2010

After our low-tech encounter at the Corelle store, we tried our luck at Kohl’s. We had browsed around the store the evening before to get a feel for what they had. We decided that it would be worthwhile. For example, Clarissa was just short of giddy that she had found green bath towels that I […]

Corelle Registry

Wednesday, May 5th, 2010

Last Saturday, Clarissa and I took a trip out to the Albertville Outlet Mall to visit the Corningware/Corelle/Revere store. We were most interested in checking out the Corelle dishes, which both of our families have used at home for many years. We wandered around the store checking out the different patterns available for the Corelle […]

Selecting a Hotel

Monday, May 3rd, 2010

Last week, I called to discuss group rates for the hotels in Maple Grove. It was quite convenient because one woman named Megan was able to get me the information for all of the hotels in the area. After getting the availability and pricing for the hotels, Clarissa and I decided that the Courtyard Marriott […]

Wedding Cakes

Sunday, May 2nd, 2010

I think one of my favorite wedding “chores” was to go wedding cake tasting. I liked tasting cakes, designing cakes, and talking about cakes! Zachary and I were surprised at how similar our tastes in cakes were. (No pun intended.) Zachary and I visited three wedding cake places before making our decision. We knew about […]

Target Registry

Wednesday, April 28th, 2010

Last Saturday, Clarissa and I went to the Plymouth Target to add items to our Club Wedd registry. We had created the registry online the previous week and added a few items to it, but finding items on the Target website was not entirely easy. Going into the store worked out much better. When we […]

Something We Will Not Be Doing

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009

Shortly after Clarissa and I got engaged, everyone felt obligated to suggest that we do the wedding entrance dance. After being sent the same link several times, it just wasn’t funny anymore. In order to prevent the same thing from happening, Clarissa and I would like everyone to know that we will not be updating […]

Wedding Dress

Saturday, October 17th, 2009

I am now positive that I will be clothed when I walk down the isle. I had heard of a sample wedding dress sale from a friend of the family at church and decided to check it out with my mother Kathy, sister Natalie, friend Katie, and soon-to-be-mother-in-law Donna. The place we went to was […]

Our Wedding Party

Monday, October 5th, 2009

Clarissa and I have had our wedding party selected for some time. We considered asking some of our friends. (We have a number of great friends from whom to choose.) However, when it came down to it, our siblings could not have been more appropriate. Clarissa and I, along with all five of our siblings, […]

Reception Hall

Monday, September 7th, 2009

FINALLY, after many visits to a bunch of fantastic venues, we have selected a reception hall! At first, Zachary and I weren’t sure what we were looking for in a reception hall, but as we saw more locations and what they offered, we began to get a better idea. We realized that not all halls […]
