Eyes On the Bride: Tal

"Eyes on the Bride" is a new feature here at TWB - so many of our friends are recently engaged and planning weddings of their own.  We are so excited for them and want to share their happy news with the world. 

Tal is a dear friend from our college days at Penn State.  She is planning a late fall wedding in Baltimore with her fiance, Scott.  They are an adorable couple, and clearly very much in love.  They have a great story because although they both graduated from PSU, they never met until years later when they were set up on a blind date.  Below is a look into their upcoming wedding, in Tal's words.

Wedding colors/theme -- Chocolate brown and champagne

Best part of planning -- Registering for all the great things we'd never buy ourselves but always wanted!

Worst part of planning -- Sticking to our budget :(

Most surprising part of planning -- We didn't realize how much things cost so the shock factor was big at first but we're getting used to it

Favorite vendor so far -- We absolutely LOVE our photographer - Maria Vicencio of Maria Vicencio Photography

Places you registered -- Crate & Barrel and Bed, Bath, & Beyond

Any Do-It-Yourself (DIY) plans? -- We haven't really done anything ourselves but we're going with a lot of start-up vendors that have all been amazing!

Honeymoon Location -- To be determined but probably a resort in Mexico.

Thanks, Tal and Scott!  We can't wait to follow up with a recap of your November wedding.  Congratulations and enjoy planning!
