1/2 way there

I can hardly believe that it has been 6 months since we got engaged and even crazier, 6 months until we get married, it's quite exciting! I realized yesterday that while I am regularly sharing wedding ideas I love, I've yet to share anything about my own wedding.

We will be renting out The Roundwood House in Mountrath, Ireland for a few days for the wedding. The house was built in the 1700's and seems like the perfect setting for our vintage wedding. All of our guests will be staying together in the house which I think will be nice way of uniting the two families as one big one.

I plan on doing a whole post about her gorgeous work, but we've hired Paula McManus to do our photography. Here's one of my favorites as a sneak peek.

I won't spoil the menu, but our dinner sounds incredible. Paddy, the owner of the Roundwood House, has amazing reviews for his cooking. In addition to the several dessert's he will be making, we are also going to have a tiny little wedding cake by Emily's Pantry. I've never seen anyone do such realistic sugar flowers!

We are so lucky to have Andrea from Chirp Paperie designing our invites. I've blogged about her before, and I can't wait to reveal our invitations!

Over the past 6 months my Mom and I have been slowly collecting vintage 1910-1920's decor to use. Everything from cloth napkins in my color scheme to a table runner and a ceremony back drop. I am so excited to see everything come together!

Wedding Wednesday: 6 months down

Tomorrow, December 5th, will be exactly 6 months until our wedding! I have a feeling once January hits, the wedding is going to sneak up on us! I am feeling pretty prepared, but there's still lots to do.
I am, as always, turning to Pinterest for inspiration and I came across this SMP that I love! Included in their invites was a helpful "packing list", what a fun idea!
