bird.i.y.: save the dates!

as promised, here are our save the dates. i blocked out our last names...don't take offense, it's nothing personal! i knew when we got engaged (who am i kidding, i knew long before we got engaged) that i wanted to do a fun movie-themed save the date. picking out the movies was a lot harder than coming up with the idea, though. i thought grease, and then realized that i didn't want to wear spandex. chris' favorite movie is moulin rouge, but that one isn't a very happy ending, so it was out. the dirty dancing lift would have been too hard. nora even suggested lady and the tramp, but did we really want to dress up as dogs? in the end, this is what we came up with. while not everyone on our invite list will know what movies they are, we still love how they turned out. can you guess what movies? i will have a side by side to let you know!


and here is the side by side:

~ 16 candles
~ pretty woman
~ the notebook

chris and i spent a good amount of time taking the 16 candles picture ourselves. it was a friday night and we went through a pack of candles and about two hours and 75 photos. i think the one we used was literally the last one we took. we had to throw the cake away it was so full of wax. we then realized there was no way we could do the next ones ourselves, so we called nora. she came over the next morning, and like a true sister and friend, she took about 50 shots of chris and i kissing (or almost kissing) in the shower. yep, we are actually in our shower, water pouring over our heads in that last photo. all in all, i'm really happy with how they turned out.
