Well, here is a weekend recap… a day late. Get ready for this action packed weekend! Sorry for the delay, moving and wedding planning tend to take up a lot of time 🙂

Friday got off to an early start (for Melanie having the day off). She had to meet the carpet cleaners bright and early at 8:30am. When she arrived at the house, she noticed all the neighbors had their trash out, so she rushed to drag/toss the heavy bags out to the curb in time for the truck to drive by the house. Apparently, FRIDAY is trash day! The rest of the day was spent doing last minute packing, taking boxes to the house, and of course, watching the Opening Ceremonies of the OLYMPICS!


Saturday was another early morning for us. Adam and the guys had the task of moving all of our furniture, while Melanie had her third and final BRidal Shower.


After the Bridal Shower, Melanie returned back to the house with her mom and sister, and the unpacking began. With the unpacking came a masterpiece in the garage, formally known as the Leaning Tower of Boxes.


After all that hard work, it was Margarita Time!!


Sunday was another eventful day! First of all, we had to return our furry friend to her owners 😦 . We got some furniture delivered from Adam’s parents, AND we got our washer and dryer hooked up. That’s right, we now have our very own WASHER AND DRYER! 🙂

Sunday afternoon we headed to Linwood to celebrate Grandma Mary’s 75th Birthday with the rest of the Richter clan. We finished the weekend off watching the Olympics, but most importantly, Women’s Gymnastics!

See… we told you it was eventful! Could we have possibly stuffed anything else into this weekend… we think not!

Can’t believe it’s already Tuesday! This week is going to fly by!

Much Love,
Adam & Melanie

Wedding {ONE MONTH!!}

Another month has come and gone, and we have a feeling this month will fly by in the blink of an eye! We are working hard on all the final wedding plans and really trying to enjoy what’s left of the planning. This month is going to be extremely busy, but probably one of the best months of our lives!

In one short month we will be husband and wife, and we couldn’t be happier about it!

Much Love,
Adam & Melanie

Just Us {House Guest}

We have a house guest for the next ten days, and we are so excited to finally have a visitor! Meet Zoey, our furry, four-legged friend. Although she won’t be much help with the packing, she will keep us enertained and exercised. She is settling in well, as Adam is treating her like a queen (Melanie has been replaced).


Much Love,
Adam & Melanie

Wedding {Invitations}

We mentioned a while ago that we received our invitations, and shortly after that, we mentioned they were sent out. Well, we didn’t want to spoil the surprise for anyone, so we never posted pictures of what they looked like. Everyone should have received their invitation by now, no matter how far away they live, so its time to show them off!!

Our photographer designed them for us, and she did a fabulous job! (Thanks Jordanne!)

First of all, when Melanie opened the box, she was instantly giddy with excitement. Not only did they look beautiful, but they were wrapped up so cute a perfect (yes, she is a dork).

Here is what the invitations looked like once they were all put together, ENjoy!

when opening the envelope, this is what the envelopment looked like before seeing the actual invitation

the opened envelopment:

Main Invite:

RSVP card (front and back):

Reception card (front & back):

We love, love, LOVE how they turned out! We were so excited to send them out, and we hope all of you enjoyed seeing them sitting in your mailbox!

Reminder: If you haven’t responded yet, we need these by August 3rd! All hotel reservations need to be made by July 24th (that’s only 9 days away!) in order to be guaranteed a room. If you have any questions, let us know! 🙂

Happy Hump Day!!

Much Love,
Adam & Melanie
