Indiana Reception a big success!

Tuesday, July 5th, 2005

Lisa and Justin

We just completed a wonderful weekend with family, friends, food, fun, an F-117 Flyover and fabulous fireworks! Lisa, Justin, Mom Liesch, Lisa’s grandmother, and I all flew back to Indiana last Thursday night to join in our second wedding reception, this time hosted by Mom and Dad B. The reception was Saturday night and included perfect weather, a prime rib buffett, shrimp cocktail and, much to Jojo’s delight, crab legs! We got to see so many people who were unable to make it out to Arizona for the wedding, and even a few who did! Thank you so much to all of you who came to the reception to celebrate with us…it realy meant so much to us. And thank you even more to Mom B, who threw one of the greatest parties we could ever imagine! Come back soon as we’ll be putting up more pictures.

Mom B just reserved a hotel for our out of town guests attending reception in Indiana. The reception will still be held at the Oakwood Inn, but in order to provide a cheaper hotel we booked one a few minutes away from the retreat center. The hotel is the Essenhaus Country Inn, a popular country styled hotel in Northern Indiana. Here’s the info you’ll need:
Essenhaus Country Inn

There are 8 rooms at $89 per night and 2 balcony rooms at $109 for July 1 and 2. We also have 2 full suites left reserved at the Oakwood Inn for $219 a night if you’d like to make a vacation out of it!

Those who guide us

I have some very exciting news…at least it’s exciting for me! Many of the wedding plans seem to be falling into place and it’s all been relatively smooth. We’ve had the issue of the mutating guest list that went from 175 to 300, we’ve had the issue of outgrowing our original location, and we’ve had the issue of not sending invitations out until less than 4 weeks before the wedding. However, one of our biggest issues was left unresolved until just last week…


Invitations are out…almost

Monday, April 4th, 2005

Well, we’ve FINALLY completed the first batch of invitations…we’ve sent out enough to at least get them to the out-of-town bunch. We are mailing just over half of the invitations today, with the expectation that we’ll finish the rest tonight to send them out. It’s a little late, but just wanted to at least make the announcement that they’re on their way! Feel free to email us if you have any questions. Hope to see you there on May 14th!

Engagement Pictures

Lisa and Drew

Lisa and I picked up our engagement pictures last night and are very excited about them! Above is our “official” engagement picture. Click “Continue Reading” for more pictures. However, please do not copy these pictures as they are proofs from the photographer. He was kind enough to give me digital versions of a few for friends and family to see. I added the watermark just to protect his work.
Let us know what you think in the comments section. Hope you enjoy!
