Hi all!  I just joined this community! 
My name is Vickie, and I will be getting married in Palmer Lake, Colorado  in April of 2007!

Nov. 9th, 2006

I ordered my dress on Saturday! I'm so excited! The first time I tried it on all the pictures came out blurry and there weren't any good enough to post :( This time I had a photographer friend come along, so I got some really great pictures :)

I ordered the Maggie Sottero "Barcelona" in Diamond White with pewter accents (the lace detail is all accented with pewter). I originally tried on a size 14 that fit perfectly, but 15lbs later I'm a perfect size 12!

Here are pictures of stuff we're working on, and links to some of our vendors.

I'm getting married August 4th, 2007 in Thornton, CO.

Hi Everyone!

Unfortunately my husband and I didn't have our wedding out here in Colorado. However we enjoyed planning ours so much that we've decided to start gathering information to start up an all-inclusive wedding business...down the road. My husband has a lot of music experience and I have a love for photography, decorating and coordinating. This will include lots of research, which I'm gladly doing. :D Anyways, I'll post here what I find. Please feel free to let me know if you have had any experiences with the companies that I find (good or bad), because I feel the best advise / recommendations come from the couples that have actually worked with vendors. I know we learned quite a bit working with our vendors in Minnesota.

Last week I found a website for planning your wedding in Colorado and signed up for information. This weekend I got 2 postcard advertisements: Sensational Sound LLC ( http://www.sensationalsoundsdj.com ) and Elegant Beginnings ( http://www.myelegantbeginnings.com ). On the back of the DJ postcard is an ad for a planning resource for southern Colorado weddings ( http://www.southerncoloradoweddings.com ). The Elegant Beginnings looks like a venue in Colorado Springs. Anyways, if you know / have any experience with these, let me know.

One recommendation I DO have is Ken Miller in Boulder, CO ( http://www.kenmillerphotography.com ). He did our engagement pictures about a year ago and did a really excellent job. We took him up to Pinecliff and then we went to the CU-Boulder campus for more pictures. ...he even got pictures of our dog. He spent about 2 hours with us and only charged us $75 + $10 for a CD with all of our pictures to get printed wherever we wanted. I don't know what he's charging now, but he's been shooting weddings for quite awhile. He quoted us $1200 (+ travel expenses) to shoot our wedding in Minnesota.

We used this one for our "Save-the-dates". It's on a bridge on the CU-Boulder campus.
