yeah, now i'm even drawing brides....

This post has nothing to do with our own wedding plans, but it does have to do with brides, so it's going up.

This is an illustration I finished up over the weekend for the Baltimore Citypaper. It's being paired with a bridal gown sample sale listing in their "calender events" section. Their art director, Joe, is really awesome and since he knows that I'm engaged he thought I'd have the most fun with the assignment. And he's right since I've already been spending too much time looking at tons of pictures of wedding gowns on the web, why not chalk it up to "research"?

In other news, Jesse and I are making our second attempt to go to Lititz this weekend to start looking at churches. Let's cross our fingers and hope some decisions get made!

Possible new wedding date

We're thinking of going with Saturday, May 24th, 2008 as the new wedding date. This falls on Memorial Day weekend, though, and we've read so much advice about not planning around holidays. Is Memorial Day a holiday large enough to cause us problems? If you have advice about this, please share.

It's one of the only good early summer dates for us that doesn't coincide with exams or graduations or birthdays. Plus, I'm trying my hardest not to move the date back any further (a five-year courtship + a year-and-a-half engagement is enough to test even the most patient of girls, and as anyone who's met me can testify, that is one virtue that I don't have).
