Wedding Inspiration Pinboard

Great news!  We just booked our wedding venue!  On June 6th, 2015 we will be getting married in Los Angeles, California at Studio 1342!

The deposit has been made and we have the wedding date I’ve wished for since before we were even engaged- 6/6! We’re having a Route 66 themed wedding and I’m totally pumped.  Now the fun part- colors, dresses, centerpieces and engagement photos!

I’ve been looking for save the date cards and attire for our engagement session to no avail. The only thing that has come together for this wedding is the venue and the funding for our wedding budget.  But you know, this is why we’re having a long engagement- I’m way too picky and these things take an inordinate amount of time.  I know myself well enough to know that I needed 1.5 years to plan this right and I’m thrilled I was able to book a venue we love for a price point that was right.

Okay. Now for pretty pictures.  

(None of these photos from Pinterest were linked to their original source…ugh..if you know who made these, let me know!)
