We're Back!

I am officially reporting to you as Mrs. Ben Bond!!!  

Isn't that exciting :)  Ben and I had such a fabulous wedding.  Everything was perfect and well worth all of the months of effort.  So many people were present to share such a wonderful time with us.  We are so blessed to have so many close friends and family.  A lot of them travelled a long way to be there for us.  

Our vendors really came through for us, too.  Ben Rasmussen, our photographer, was fabulous.  He's already published a few of our photos from the photobooth on his website and they are just hilarious.  I can't wait to see the rest of them!  

Jonathan Ross, the event planner at Fairfax Marriott of Fair Oaks, is highly recommended by my parents.  (They handled all details with the hotel.)  They said he was outstanding to work with and that he made everything much easier.  And I can tell you the hotel staff did an excellent job of actually putting on the reception.  (If you live in the Northern Virginia area, you should probably check these places out if you're putting on a big event.)

Diane over at Burke Florist created some AMAZING bouquets for me and the girls.  They were exactly what I wanted and just so beautiful.  It's too bad flowers don't last very long, but at least we have the pictures.
  

And Wanda of Wanda's Cakes created the most beautiful cake I've ever seen.  I couldn't have been more pleased with the way everything turned out.  

Just wanted to give everyone a quick note that we're back and had such a wonderful time both at the wedding and on the honeymoon!!  (St. Barths was AMAZING.  I will give more details and pictures in the next few days!!  As well as some more wedding pictures, as I get them!)  For now, my husband and I are hanging out in Blacksburg for 2 weeks until we finally move to VA Beach (well, he's working and I'm packing up).  I hope everyone has a great day!
