Fiancé's name: Erik
Fiancé's age: 36
Role in wedding: Bride to be
Location of wedding: NYC - not exactly sure where yet
Wedding date: 10/07 - haven't picked a definite date yet

Wedding details (theme, size, formality, etc.): We are having a medium/large size wedding- approx 250 people. the ceremony will be in the same church my parents and grandparents got married in... and then the reception will be somewhere beautiful afterwards. i'm hoping to find something with a garden-y aspect, as well as a ballroom for sit down dinner. indoor/outdoor options are a big thing for me. We aren't going to have a theme, per se, but we'll probably stick to autumn color - rich reds and oranges and browns and golds. i don't want anything too formal or black-tie, but i don't want a hoe-down either... we are trying to find a happy compfortable medium :)
How you met: he was friends with my ex-boyfriend and he was also the drummer in a band that i loved. we had a bit of a messy start, but in the end all that matters is that we came out of the ordeal together. and eight year later, we are still going strong <3
Was it "love" at first sight?: honestly, for me, yes.
What do you love MOST about your fiancé: that he tempers my neurotic-ness with his laid back nature. i think we are eachother's best compliments.
Do you have a wedding journal/website?: just a livejournal that i started- nicoleanderik
Anything else? we got engaged in 7/06 and planned a big engagement party in 10/06 (with my parent's help) and totally burned out! it's been 3 months now and i'm looking forward to getting this wedding planning started, finally.
