as some of you already know, our wedding is nearly 100% hand made. everything is earth friendly, hand done, and completely unique. i am excited to have a wedding that represents the life we life, however it has been proving a bit more difficult to have the things we want, because it’s jamaica. im betting they dont have peonies. i love the environment, i just dont want tropical decor. im sure we will figure it out. also i learned that when you say “wedding” the price goes up about 50% for everything! i have to admit though, we have been
Jess and I have done a bunch in the past week. The invitations for the wedding are 90% complete, now we just need to figure who is going to print them. Next we need to work on the menu for the engagement party and decor for the wedding. I need to find a dress for the engagement party as well. A brides work is never done…. 🙂
Invitations have begun going out for the engagement party. This week I will be designing the actual wedding invitations. We decided to make them! This is going to be fun. 🙂 So, after a lot of people asking “where are your registered”, and us going “no place”, we caved in. As most of you know, Joey and I moved in together this July, and have been setting up house. This is what we came up with: anthropologie – unique and fancyCB2 – crate and barrel’s younger, more affordable storejonathanadler- collectible and keepsake
I know this doesn’t count for anything to Jamaica – but it is during the Engagement Party. Use the code below and get $15 off your flight to NY for our engagement party (Sep 14th). I have contacted American Air about a group discount. I will post any information after we sort something out. xo,Lana

I am so excited to say that Jonah Matranga of his solo project, Onelinedrawing, will be able to play our wedding. For those of you who don’t know about him, I highly suggest taking a peek at his work on itunes or checking out his website www.jonahmatranga.com. For over 12 years I have loved his music and his message and we are so excited to be able to share this with everyone.
Joey’s Uncle Doug suggested a few years ago that Joey and I go to Jamaica and stay at TenSing Pen, and we did, and wow…. We fell in love with this place before we even arrived. We found ourselves not wearing shoes, having the best sleep of our lives, and just relaxing. Relaxing is huge for us! Being in NYC, we are always GO GO GO! When you fall asleep, you hear the ocean right outside your window, the plant life is that of a fairy tale, and the cliffs and ocean are simply breath taking. We showered with crabs
So the engagement party invitations are complete, and the real wedding planning has kicked in. I have to say it is much more overwhelming than I anticipated. So many ideas! First off, it’s a destination wedding. Joey and I have only been there once, but as most of you already know, we will be wed May 25th 2009 in Negril, Jamaica at a wonderful resort village called TenSing Pen. So far I got the dress, and that’s about it. So welcome to our blog! I hope we can provide you with all the info you will need regarding our big
