Ok so today me and FI went to La Valencia for a tour and meeting with Heidi. I took alot of pics! So maybe these could help someone else out who is looking :)

The Garden where the ceremony would take place:

Here are pics of other spots around the Hotel:

Thats what I have from my camera, I totally spaced on taking pics inside the reception room. Oops. Anyway, I am excited! The only thing is the colors are throwing me out of whack! There are so many and I never thought I would go for something with so much pink! So I am not sure what to do about colors.

I just found another dress online that I love!!!! So now there are 2 of them that are in the running, but I just wont know until i try them on. It's hard waiting because the eve of milady trunk show isn't until Feb 11th and the Atelier Aimee trunk show isnt until March 18th. Here are the dresses I am dying to try on:

Eve of Milady:

Atelier Aimee:

I went to Chez Bride Modern and tried on some dresses! Love them but I decided they arent the ones for me.

Hi gardenprincess! Congrats on making a ceremony/reception decision - I love La Valencia...absolutely one of the most gorgeous locations in sd. I wanted LV except I needed more space (so I'm down the street from you at Cuvier/MCASD)

I'm using that branch centerpiece as inspiration as well. I'm going semi-DIY on that one (all the details are in my journal, so I won't bore you with them here). And, you have such great inspirational photos. Your ring box is awesome too! Good luck on the dress hunt.

hope you don't mind itsmars, but i used your BM card idea. I think it's sooooo cute. I'm making these right now YAH!

My handwriting SUCKS but oh well. I guess it's more personalized that way.

.......a few hours later........I finished them!

Wow I feel like I am doing something everyday! Today I got some garden lanterns that I am going to use at my engagement party and my ceremony/reception. I just need to get some candles for them now :) I like em they have lil glass doors and they look all vintage rustic so they are perfect for my garden theme.
