    We got engaged on my b-day weekend of Aug 31. We are planning a wedding for Dec 27 for 60-80 people. This is what we have accomplished in one week:
    secured church/reception site
    selected flowers
    selected photographer
    purchased bride's dress
    purchased maid of honour and matron of honour dresses
    selected groom's, best man's, and ring bearer's outfit
    selected flower girl's dress
    selected a caterer...but will look at others and compare
    found the cakemaker...we now need to choose the design
    picked out the music that we will march up on...
    lots of smaller details left but we got most of the "big 10" done in no time. granted we are having a small wedding...i don't understand why people need at least one year to plan one day.
    here is the link to the pics...enjoy!

    Congrats Drew...that's really cool that you have a bunch of pictures of the actual moment.

    I've probably seen you skating around Calhoun, I go almost every day. I live just a few blocks from the concession stand/restroom building on Lake Street (shown in the third and fifth picture).

    Drew and Colleen, Congratulations!

    That idea to take pictures of the engagement is one I'll have to use when I'm at that stage in my life! What a great idea!

    All the best!

    Thanks for the kind words guys.

    Mark, I'm glad you're taking advantage of that great location. I lived on Calhoun Pkwy in an apartment overlooking the lake for a year and a half. I wished I had done more activities around the lake. I find myself at Calhoun more since I'm now in Eagan!

    Definately a cool distraction idea, and you have pix of the moment. I just totally fooled my fiance for her birthday a few months ago, and it went over so well that I also wish I had some pix of that moment.
    I made a fake birthday cake that asked her in the icing, so she was similar to your fiancee, all comfortable and normal and then suddenly shocked. [​IMG]
    When a great plan comes together like that it's the best. But you have the pictures to prove it. [​IMG]

    Congratulations to Drew and Colleen! Those are some nice pictures.

    I proposed in June and we are now planning our wedding for next summer. I can't believe how much you have already accomplished! We have a ceremony site, officiant, reception site (food/beverages included), rehearsal dinner site, and invitations. I am starting to look into photographers and DJs. Heather is looking at flowers and dresses and working on the color scheme.
