Day 1 of my 1st ever blog

well this is really a pre-blog kick off post -- there are actually more than 365 days until the wedding, but i wanted to post early as i'm just now figuring out how thing blog-thing works.

it was actually kind of a manic insane weekend with wedding planning adventures. i was up early on sat reading various wedding blogs and found this great wedding that featured wood shutters. yes, wood shutters from an old house were involved with the decor. so a few hours later, i was on craigsist and this nice guy had just posted 100 year old shutters for sale. we decided that we could not miss out on 17 blue, green, and black shutters, so we hopped in the put-put car and headed out to get 'em. $200 later we acquired some amazing items that we hope to use to break up the space between the ceremony and reception. we'll see...good thing we have super creative people in our lives to help with the vision...

and then yesterday, we got up early and headed to the brimfield antique fair. this was crazy and maybe the most wonderful place on earth. we didn't go too crazy, but we did find some great picture frames, a pizza oven paddle thing, and perhaps a carpenters trunk which will act as a new coffee table. ok so not everything will be used for the wedding, but we now have many more ideas and inspiration for the concept we're going for. the plan is to use as much as the wedding decor/other stuff that we buy after the wedding in our house. fingers crossed we'll find a use for those shutters...

About this blog

in an effort to keep me sane, relaxed, organized, humored, and hopefully useful to others, i'm going to document the next 365 days of wedding planning. i'd also like this to be a way to keep family and friends that don't live in boston feeling like they're in the know and involved over the next year. in a nutshell - liana and i are having a very non-traditional, modern wedding with vintage and sustainable elements. these 'elements' are still in progress and over the next year, we'll be on ebay, craigslist, random blogs and websites, trekking out to various antique fairs in New England, and using the skills of our friends and family for DIY projects.
