Events of the Weekend } 2.19

PICTURE OVERLOAD!!!!

So this weekend was awesome! Kevin and I went down to Ohio and on Saturday Sara met us down there, she's one of my only friends that has come down to my hometown of Dayton! Which was so fun to show her around and do some wedding planning stuff!




Saturday started out at the caterers stuffing our bellies with AMAZING food!!! We got most of our menu figured out which is exciting, we just now need to figure out the hor d'oeuvres. Yay! Sara took alot of pictures of us eating, and this one was my favorite.






Then after we made our way down to Waynesville, an awesome town full of antique shops for a cake tasting later in the day. We spent the down time going through shops and of course taking outfits shots!





Sara loved the town cause she thought it was like the town in Gilmore Girls, and the gazebo was the icing on the look. So I gave my best smile and my best "doh" face.



Then we were allowed to eat cake! Yum yum yum!



Gallivanting in the woods.





Of course we stopped by the Masonic Temple, where the reception is, and took pictures... But alas, it was closed and we couldn't go inside. But now you can see the scale of this place... it's HUGE!






Then we stopped by a few more options for ceremony locations... If all else fails, we know we can have the ceremony on the steps of the Masonic looking over the river and downtown Dayton. So not all is lost. But I really want a naturey ceremony then the refined reception, I think it's a good juxtaposition and very much me and Kev.





Kevin photobombed Sara's picture, hahaha




And then we went back to my mom's house. Isn't it so purdy? All in All awesome Saturday.

What a fun weekend! Waynestown looks like a great town to visit. Keeping my fingers crossed that you and Kev find an awesome ceremony location.

Stop posting food porn lol

What beautiful photos, particularly of the one with Sara on the dock and all of the trees reflected in the water.

You wear the midi length skirts so elegantly and I love the minty colour of this one. The top goes beautifully with it too. When I first looked at the pictures I thought of Gilmore Girls too! Small town, white houses, gazebo in the town square, cafes along the roads! Great pictures too!

what a very busy time for you!!
wow.
I love your outfit and that coat looks so cozy. Seems like you would have such a great time trying out your wedding menu! Glad you were able to pick foods you wanted there and such.

Your mom's house is gorgeous. I love how the bricks look. There is a house near where I live that reminds me of this with those type of bricks and just last week I was saying how "Revolutionary" it looked and how I loved it.
