But what about the guy in the back?

Thursday, October 27th, 2005

I think the real question of the day is what the guy in the back is doing?
Browsing the personal ads?
Trying to ignore his crazy roommates?

I Want It That Way.

Who wouldn’t love 2 Chinese students lip syncing to Back Street Boys? Turn your speakers on, should really experience this with sound.

Pictures of Truman the Dog (from his level)

Thomas: a few new pictures for you, as promised.

Anyone who isn’t Thomas: Thomas is the groom in the wedding I am coordinating next weekend and he wants to steal my dog. I don’t want him to him do that so I placate him with pictures and the promise he can dogsit at some point.

How can you resist this face?

Welcome Elena!

Wednesday, October 26th, 2005

Elena Marie was born on October 25 at 1:04 am. She weighed 5 lbs and 14 ounces and was 19 inches long. Valerie had a good labor (somewhat short too, only 9-1/2 hours from when her water broke to the delivery) and both mom and baby are doing great!

Randy and Kevin were friends in college, they had the same major. Valerie and I have became good friends through them. They are a great couple and I know they will be wonderful parents to Elena and all her siblings yet to come!

Welcome to world little Elena Marie!

Oh! And Happy Anniversary to Kevin and Val as well (Elena was born just 6 days shy of their 2 year wedding anniversary – what a wonderful gift!)

And we're back…but here we go again.

Hubby and I were out of town all weekend in Lexington, Kentucky

*ahem* house hunting *ahem*

and Mom called on Tuesday and let me know the blog was down. I got another couple of emails from friends and clients (hi everyone!) telling me the same thing. After a small panic attack that everything was gone, my web host figured it out and we’re back!

Did you catch that?

Subtle, I know.

Randy and I are moving to Lexington, Kentucky. Home of the Wildcats of University of Kentucky and the future home of Emilie Duncan Event Planning. Randy is going to be on a project at UK starting late this year. I am staying in Cleveland for a little while into 2006 to complete some weddings but should be down in Kentucky full time in late spring.

I am looking very forward to opening a new branch of EDEP in Lexington but I will miss Cleveland a lot. I have been here 2 years and have grown to love the town, the community, the wedding vendors and my clients. I will truly miss Cleveland and Ohio but I think Kentucky will be a wonderful place to live and grow EDEP.

Now all I need is to do is work on my accent.

Wonderful Graffiti

Thursday, October 20th, 2005

I LOVE the original Wonderful Graffiti! I think it is such a cool idea – cannot wait to design one for the walls of my new office!

If you don’t know what it is, this is from their website:
Wonderful Graffiti is very thin pieces of matte vinyl that look “printed” when applied to most smooth surfaces. Your entire Wonderful Graffiti design arrives on one sheet of transfer paper. Just tape the transfer paper into place, burnish it down and peel it away. Only the individual letters and graphic elements remain. Wonderful Graffiti removes quickly, and won’t harm underlying surfaces.

Now, the fabulous folks at WG have a new brand: Wonderful Graffiti Wedding

How lovely is this ceremony scene with the vows behind it?

Brilliant. Lovely. Simple. Unique. All things I love.

Apprentice: Martha Stewart

Wednesday, October 5th, 2005

I am finding this show very interesting since many of the tasks are wedding-ish. Nice to see that many of things are not as easy as some people assume they would be. 🙂

One note about this week’s episode – Jim and the fact that his wife had a baby. I’m sorry but if you actually believe that she wasn’t just a little ticked off that she had to give birth while he was off in NYC with Martha, you need to think again. Lord knows I would be FURIOUS. I just had to say that.

Meghan + Matt: 10.01.05

Tuesday, October 4th, 2005

Meghan and Matt’s wedding was one of those that I feel truly blessed to have been involved in. It was clear to me from the beginning that they are a strong, loving couple with excellent role models of love in both sets of parents.

Some of my favorite things:

Meghan and Matt met at a Halloween party at Ohio University. As it turns out her parents also met on Halloween and have been together over 25 years – excellent footsteps for the new couple to follow in!

The day was perfect – low 70’s sunshine, light breeze and low humidity. A-Mazing. This was courtesy of the Best Man, Chris. He is, of course, a meteorology major.

Watching Meghan’s Dad right before he and Meghan’s Mom walked her down the aisle was so much fun. He was SO excited, bouncing on his toes, peeking around the corner of the church to watch the processional, giving us progress reports. The excitement was so obvious in all of them.

The centerpieces for the 21 tables had almost 500 apples in them which were donated to the Cleveland Food Bank the following day – a place that both Meghan and Matt have volunteered in the past.

I don�t think �Hang On Sloopy� will ever sound the same to me after living in Ohio. I don�t think they do that in Kentucky!

My feet still hurt and my legs ache but having Meghan tell me that it was better than she could have hoped for makes that worth every single Advil.

Pictures to come from the wonderful Chris Holley-Starling. And just wait, I know they are going to blow you away!
