My Community Profile

I am HiLLjO, Event Planner, crochet lady, sock monkey creator, etsyer, blogger and LoVE. My fiance Shawn and I got engaged at the Omaha Zoo's Butterfly House in August of 2010. He surprised the pants off me despite me expecting to be proposed to that month. We're planning our wedding for June of 2011. It shall be a Bunny Love Fest, as we call each other Bunny.
All we knew after we got engaged was that we wanted to be outside. I knew that I wanted the ceremony and reception to be in the same place. We looked at parks, we looked at hotels and everything was either too unweildy or too expensive. The venue we ended up with is a beautiful, open airy space coated in white paint and has lots of windows. It overlooks the Missouri River. We're decorating with repeating motifs of Blue Bows, Bunnies, Sunflowers, Butterflies and Branches. It's a DIY-lovefest as well. The total budget is under $7,000.
