We’re Engaged! Month #1


Today marks one full month of me and Tony being engaged! On June 16, I got up from our picnic blanket at the Rock Quarry to get something out of my bag, and when I turned around, I found Tony on one knee, holding my ring with the biggest smile on his face. I love the memory of that look on his face! I hope I never forget that look…it was pretty amazing.


In one month of being engaged, we have….

~celebrated with champagne and strawberries at the sweet Pettigru Place Bed & Breakfast and had an amazing four-course dinner at American Grocery Restaurant


~enjoyed a quiet get-away to the mountains, where we walked around the lake and just spent time together

~picked our wedding date! Woohooo May 27, 2012!!

~reserved our ceremony site



~had dinner with my parents at Bin 112 to celebrate

~introduced part of our families to each other (with MUCH laughter and conversation!) at Giorgio’s

~introduced Tony to my sweet Great-Aunts…and received a hot-from-the-oven pound cake


~been treated to a family Engagement Party Cookout hosted by Tony’s parents….again, MUCH laughter and conversation between our two families, and some neat surprise connections between them!


~begun the process of combining two homes. WOW we both have a lot of stuff. Yard sale next week, folks!! (Seriously! Please, come buy.)

~asked about half of our bridesmaids and groomsmen to share in our special day

~asked our dads to perform our wedding ceremony

~gotten the cutest Flower Girl in the world who sings a special song about “Miss Amy and Mr Tony are getting marrrrrrrrried…”

~almost narrowed down our Guest List (thank goodness that’s nearly over; stressing me out!)

~pretty much decided on our reception site (crossing fingers!!)


~hired our photographers–love our sweet friends from Sposa Bella!

Not too shabby for just a month, right?? 🙂 Tony and I are so excited to be planning not only our wedding, but more importantly our marriage. It has been wonderful and overwhelming to see how many people are sharing in our happiness and are supporting us in this new, exciting journey. The facebook messages, phone calls, cakes, cards, hugs, and happy tears of our friends and family have blown us away. It is a pretty special thing to be this loved! I am such a lucky girl.

    Hey Amy. Can’t express in words how excited I am for you and Tony!! You will make a beautiful bride and I hope to get to know Tony in the near future! On a side note. I was just looking at some photos and there is one of my girls that you took. Chris and I both agree that it is our favorite photo ever taken of them. You captured them as they are…only you could do that. I look forward to seeing you as a happy engaged woman and then married woman. Only the best for you and Tony!

    I love the end…planning the wedding, but more importantly the marriage. How wise you are to see that at the end of the day…that is the the planning part, that is the part that makes all of the wedding day stuff secondary. My heart jumps with joy everytime I see a post regarding your wedding, your happiness, your journey! Love ya bunches.

  6. Carrie says:

    oh…and one more thing. In the first weeks you were dating him, didn’t I say that if I had a bunch of people in a line and had to couple each one up…I would put you two together? HAHA
