On the Hunt!

Hi friends! Hope you enjoyed this beautiful October weekend 🙂 Stephen and I went Venue hunting for the FIRST TIME since we’ve been engaged. The weather was absolutely perfect! In preparation for our day, we began with Pumpkin Spice Coffee at Einsteins ~ nothing gets accomplished without our mornin’ cup of joe!

We were lucky in the sense that every single venue we visited, was in the midst of setting up for a wedding. This gave us a chance to see what each venue site would actually look like with all the details.

Ahem, I may or may not have used the photo booth that was set up prior to several weddings…hey at least I didn’t get the props involved 😉

My mom joined in on the photo brigade too…I guess we see where I get it from!

Since we dropped by many venues as they were setting up for weddings…we got a few freebies! Free cake sampling? An extra box of DE-licious macaroons? And not to mention appetizers & drinks before the next venue appointment? YES, YES, & YES PLEASE!

Not only was it a successful day with several potential venues in mind, but we walked into a random furniture store ~’These Four Walls’ – who just happened to be having a lil’ wine & cheese party. Can we say spur of the moment~dressed to dish? Just how I like it 🙂

We dined at Havana 59 for dinner with the entire Cushman crew…such a great night! Sadly the photo-holic within me was too consumed with my wine & food to remember to get a family picture!

Mediteranean Shrimp Salad ~ so yummy!

We ended the night ‘out on the town’ with some friends we had not seen in awhile! A very successful weekend!

Hope you have a great week, stay dressed to dish! 🙂
