Wedding & Reception Venue: 1316 Jones Street
About Me: The more I’ve gotten into the wedding planning, the more I’ve thought about how it would be fun to tell this story while I’m at it. I plan fundraising events for a living, but planning your own wedding is totally different. I didn’t ever think I wanted the big fairy tale wedding, but now that I’m planning a wedding, I realized that I do want it to be fun and special and my own version of a fairy tale. I’ve waited 32 years for the perfect guy and now I want to have the perfect wedding to go with it!
My Wedding Plan: We are not having a church ceremony, we would like to keep the service short and sweet so our guests can enjoy the party and celebrate with us.

Wedding venue: Mid America Center
Reception venue: Community of Christ Church
About me: My fiance and I are both small town kids at heart. We went to the same college at the same time and never met. We ended up meeting at a birthday party in Omaha and the rest is history. Neither one of us thought we would live in the “big city” but if we hadn’t … I would not be writing for Wedding Essentials Omaha! I hope I can blog about this adventure of pulling a little country style into a big city wedding. Also, by blogging ideas (rather than chatting about them) I may be able to keep my fiancé sane. :)
My wedding plan: We are planning on about 450 guests. Both growing up in Christian homes we want the ceremony to be full of faith and love. Mr Behavin’s cousin will be marrying us, making it personal and family oriented. We want the ceremony and reception to be filled with music. I am a bit of an old soul, so I love the idea of antique flares throughout the reception. The whole idea of the day is elegant / antique with a dab of rustic.

Engaged: April 7, 2011
Wedding date: October 13, 2012 — MARRIED!
Reception and wedding venue: The Durham Western Heritage Museum
About me: I have a wonderful fiancé that has joined me in all of the planning and continues to be a great help with fun ideas and opinions. So far, our 18-month engagement has be lots of fun and, what’s the rush when we have been together for 6 years? This way we truly get to make this event what we want and unique to our tastes.
My wedding plan: It will be an evening wedding all to take place at The Durham. No religious ceremony, just a buddy living in NYC will officiate. Immediately following the ceremony, cocktails and hot hors d’oeurves will be served and, of course, one hell of a party.

Wedding and Reception venue: Twin Lakes Ranch (an acreage of a family friend) in Malcom, NE
About me: Wedding blogs are something that I have enjoyed getting into ever since I got engaged. I love reading them and checking out all the cool and creative ideas… it is amazing to me how talented some people are! What better way to help embrace this whole experience than by writing/blogging about it? I’m happy I can share this amazing experience with other brides!
My wedding plan: My dream since I was about 5 years old is to get married at Twin Lakes Ranch. Our Wedding is a nature inspired, rustic/chic wedding. It will be a Christian-based ceremony, but also a very non-traditional one as well.

Reception and wedding venue: Scottlynn Yards Blair, NE
About me: I have found the wedding planning process to be really interesting. It has been an awesome platform for my fiance and I to practice problem solving and compromising as a couple. We are discovering our shared values as we seek to bring together two very different families. With my family and closest girl friends all located out of state, the planning process to date has been kind of lonely. Blogging about my plans enables me to connect with a community of wedding people here in the Omaha area.
My wedding plan: Mr. Adventure and I are both very outdoorsy, so having a beautiful location and rustic setting was essential. We will be married in a small clearing that leads into a wooded area. After the ceremony, guests will walk up to the barn where, during the cocktail hour, we will have lawn games available. We are toying with having non-traditional elements like a taco truck vs. a formal sit down dinner.

Wedding Date: Friday June 15th, 2012 — MARRIED!
Wedding and Reception venue: St. Cecilia’s Cathedral, Omaha; The Double Tree Downtown, Omaha, NE
About me: I’m a bride-to-be who is enjoying every aspect of wedding planning! I was born and raised in Lincoln, NE where I attended Pius X High School. I recently graduated from the University of Nebraska at Omaha with a business degree in entrepreneurship and management. I enjoy staying active in the community through various organizations and taking the time for the hobbies that interest me such as cooking for friends and family, trying new restaurants around Omaha, concerts and music, sand volleyball and indoor soccer, cheering on the Huskers in the fall, and local events around Omaha such as Taste of Omaha, Farmer’s Markets, and the College World Series. : )
My wedding plan: I envision my wedding to be something where when people see any detail of it, they know I put a lot of thought into it and reflect my personality to a “T.” I am a fairly classic and traditional with a slight modern or romantic edge … which is playing out fantastically as all the designs and selections for our big day are starting to come together. The wedding planning process has been such a great experience thus far and I am anxious to see what is next! It takes a lot of time and a lot of energy, but the personal touches and little details mean a lot to me when it comes to planning this day out … so every minute is worth it!
