Wedding Paper Divas is bursting with staff brides who are currently planning their weddings. We’re happy to share their stories with you as a part of this fun feature! Here’s Kari’s post for this week:
No big story today ladies and gentleman. Just a sneak peek at the “vision” for our big day…it’s really happening!!
Five more weeks!
According to Marvin, he met Kari at a college football game. Kari says the actual story is that they met at a mutual friends house. Wherever the love connection may have taken place, the two ended up becoming best friends and the rest is history. Four years after their meeting (or “meetings”), the two plan to marry on September 25, 2010 in San Ramon, California.
A post-wedding brunch is the perfect chance for the bride and groom to mingle with their close friends and family and extend the wedding weekend festivities a little longer! A bright and cheery theme will keep the atmosphere casual but chic.
