More wedding photographers

Posted in Uncategorized at 12:45 pm by Elizabeth Holena

Katie Stoops from Open Air Photography emailed me the  Open Air Investment Guide 2010. I’m interested in Package 2, but I’m not sure if 6 hours of coverage is enough. She does state that couples may substitute the engagement or bridal session with two additional hours of coverage. This could be a feasible option.

I am also interested in Brett Winter Lemon Photography and Emily Hayes Photography. Any thoughts on these photographers?


Happy Birthday Aunt Kathy!

I sign my apartment lease today

Posted in Uncategorized at 11:42 am by Elizabeth Holena

Today, after my last class of graduate school, I have to drive up to Arlington to sign my new apartment lease. Neal and I are moving into a brand new apartment building in the Courthouse area of Arlington. We even have a view of the Washington Monument. I can’t wait to move in and start decorating.

The amenities are fantastic; they include a gym, pool, and movie room. The best part is that Neal can walk to work and I can metro to work. We can walk to stores, restaurants, and two metro stops.  🙂

Possible wedding photographer

Posted in Uncategorized at 7:47 pm by Elizabeth Holena

I really wanted to hire Casey Templeton (JMU ’06) as our wedding photographer but he is no longer traveling outside of Richmond. So, instead I’ve been searching and searching for someone who is affordable and artistic. I came across Open Air Photography by Katie Stoops. I like her style–it’s artsy and interesting. I’m going to contact her for availability and a price quote.

I love the leaves on this wedding invitation from Wedding Paper Divas. The purple leaves are appropriate for a fall wedding.

Save the Date!

Neal and I are getting married on Saturday, October 9, 2010, at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Washington, DC. The ceremony begins at 3:00 pm and will be a traditional Catholic mass. Neal and I plan to send printed save-the-dates in the mail in the beginning of 2010.

Hey…let’s plan a wedding!

Posted in Uncategorized at 6:15 pm by Elizabeth Holena

The ringI decided to create Getting to Happily Ever After as a way for Neal, my fiance, and I to plan our wedding with family and friends. My goal for this blog is that it will be a project management tool and personal diary of our engagement and wedding.

I plan to use Getting to Happily Ever After as my individual project for TSC 690 Digital Rhetoric. This blog will incorporate topics relating to digital rhetoric such as social interaction design, social media, and collaboration.
