Talking wedding plans and pics

Hello friends...

not been on as much as i use to be, i need to fix that!

some of you know, some of you don't, that i am getting married this coming april!

someone told me some of my friends here wanted to see pics, so i'll detail some plans and finish with some pics

HOW WE MET: i took care of his mother in the hospital in jan., and the night i met him i walked out and told another nurse i was going to marry that pt's son. the nurse told me i was nuts, i told her "you wait and see." we started talking over facebook, and saw each other at the hospital on and off. he asked me out for coffee *we went march 1,* then for dinner *march 4,* and it just went from there. i had dresses picked out in april *wink* and he started talking about getting married in may. i was telling everyone three weeks in that i didn't think he knew it yet, but i was definitely going to marry him. he and i laugh over that now

i had NO interest in dating anyone seriously, and he is unlike any man i have ever met. he's wonderful. and he must be, because i had yet to meet a man i'd say that about

DATE: April 19, 2010

LOCATION: a beautiful historic white house on the river in Knoxville, Tn with 9 terraces of gardens, landscaping, and fountains, with 30,000 tulips that will be in bloom in april

and the pics:

DRESS:


MY RING: we had it custom made from a ring my Nana gave me. my band will be a diamond band from diamonds out of the ring Nana made me


i apologize for the poor quality of my skin and the pic it truly is beautiful~the jeweler did an amazing job

WEDDING LOCATION: Crescent Bend, Knoxville, TN

the chair set up site will be our set up;there are other terraces with fountains and landscaping that are beautiful. there are also two fully tented, chandaliered terraces where the reception will take place

AND, THE CUTE COUPLE:


so...what do you all think?

and i'll keep you posted

Congratulations Cutie Cat, nice to hear some wonderful good news for a change!
Your ring is spectacular, very special, and the dress is beautiful! You are going to look wonderful in those pretty gardens as well.
I don't know about April in Tennessee, but if you got married here in April, you'd risk being caught in a snowstorm!
Once again, congratulations, and best of luck!

You will be an absolutely beautiful bride in that dress in an absolutely beautiful setting. The ring is fantastic, it will hold so many great memories. And a great looking couple.

ABSOLUTELY!!! we booked the Celebrity Equinox out of Rome leaving May 14, 2010. and we're going to spend 3 extra nights in Rome when we return.

rollerdonna, we may have snow. we may have rain. we may have 80 degrees in the day and 30 at night~east tennessee weather is so unpredictable in the spring/fall!

thanks everyone for the well wishes

*p.s. CQ~there will be no, i repeat NO, babies for at least 5-8 years. we want to travel, and enjoy each other before kids!*
