It’s been a while since I’ve written something on here! I always forget how much I really enjoy coming on this platform to connect with you guys at a much deeper level. Anyone else feel that way about blogs?
As you may know, Matt and I just started planning our wedding. I personally feel like we’re behind on this whole process but I’m glad we’ve taken the time to really sit and think about what we wanted.
For starters, Matt and I found our dream venue last Friday! It’s not your traditional venue but we are so happy with it because it has everything we need. It’s a beautiful home located in Thousand Oaks in a very secluded area which is ideal for a wedding. The backyard is spacious and has plenty of room for tables, chairs, a dance floor, DJ, and not to mention space for a bartender and a catering company.
Why did you pick a house instead of a banquet hall?
When we were shopping around for a venue we didn’t want to feel restricted. We wanted the freedom to book our own catering company, supply our own drinks and party until 2 a.m. Not many locations will allow parties to do any of the above without having to pay more money. Matt and I plan to stay within a specific budget so when we come across this place it was meant to be! It’s true what they say, ” When you know, you know!” My advice to any future bride is: do your research, look at different options and figure out your budget. This will make it much easier when booking a place.
Now, we’re still in the beginning stages of planning but we at least have the venue which is the MOST important thing in my books. We also have a date for the wedding (2020), ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS (which I’ll be sharing down below) my dream cake, first dance picked out and a honeymoon destination – AHHH! I’ll definitely be sharing more once things start falling into place.
So, without further ado, here’s our engagement photos!! You won’t believe this but this was our first photo session together – I thought we did pretty good 😉 Matt and I took pictures at the Pasadena Courthouse which ended up being the perfect location for a mini photoshoot. I’m really happy with my photos and couldn’t have picked a better photographer to bring my vision to life. Hope you guys enjoy them, too.

Let the wedding planning BEGIN!!!!
