The Dress is in...

My Wedding gown has offically arrived in Chicago!
I went downtown to MACYS with my mom, grandma, Aunt Kathy, Aunt Denise, Kim, Missy, Jill, Lauren, Olivia, and Mrs. Kawakami to look at the dress and try on veils!
While we were down there we ate lunch at the Walnut room on the 7th floor of MACYS!

I love MACYS on State Street because it has such a vintage feeling and its magical!

Ceremony Location!

We have decided that we want our Ceremony to be at Tiffany & Co. Celebration Garden in grant park. This is located right in front of Buckingham fountain. We are not able to reserve this Location until January of 2011....We are so excited!

Wedding Plans!!!!

Hello Hello.... It's been a while since I last posted something. Jeremy and I have been super busy with work and school. We have just started on our wedding plans... Everyone has been asking how things are going so I thought that I would update my blog!!

Grooms Party:Marcus Kawakami (BM), Jon Berkley(BM), Matt Schaab, Mike Schaab, Nick Venetico, Rich Houston, Kevin Phillips, Brian Krier, Tyler Phillips
Wedding Dress: CHECK!!!....I was not expecting to find my dress but, for my 27th birthday my mom and my dad took me to Macy's on State street Downtown Chicago. ( They watch Say YES to the dress, so they wanted to experience finding the dress with me!) It was always a dream of mine to look at wedding gowns there. The salon is absolutely beautiful and the staff there makes you feel so important. I tried on about 4 dresses and I thought they were all beautiful, but when I tried on my gown the feeling was overwhelming. as soon as I saw myself in the mirror I immediately began to cry. It hit me all of a sudden, I felt like Oh My God! I'm getting married!!! I turned to my mom and she was crying too... That's when I knew this was the dress!
We will let you know how AZ went and we will post some Pictures!!
