the (super)ultimate wedding...

...yep, we've decided to join in on the fun and submit an entry in Crate and Barrel/Daily Candy's Ultimate Wedding Challenge.

LEMME VOTE!! Okay...go here and click on pretty pink 'vote for this entry' button on right of picture: http://www.ultimateweddingcontest.com/entries/38320

'What the heck is this challenge, and what does it mean to me?!' Well, it's really cool because not only do you get to vote for two really cool people to win a really cool contest, but we all get the chance to sit back and marvel at the power of social media! In just three days, we've collectively tallied 258 votes. My goal is 100 votes a day. So, today we still have yet to grab 42 votes. As a wise man once said, 'Yes, we can.' ;)

So, go ahead and vote...if you have multiple email addresses, vote with every one of 'em. And, spread the word. Invite friends to the event we created on facebook. Post it to your profiles. Change your statuses. Tweet it. MySpace it. Email it. Pop it in an envelope and old-school-snail-mail it. Whatever. (okay, maybe not the snail-mail one, as we only have until 31 March). So, act now! Hurry!

In the mean time, enjoy reading my version of our entry...which was the resounding loser when we chose which one to submit, mine or his. Zach (my bro) chose Tom's in the taste-test. But...you tell me...which one is really better?! Leave a comment below to let me know. hee.

Title: She had him at H.O.R.S.E.
Our love story.

This fairytale began with a chance meeting on a dance floor (through a mutual friend) and turned into a beautiful written love affair, Megan and Tom sharing their biggest dreams and their love for brightly-coloured socks, haribo gummi food and global exploration (and his love for the pancreas) through their unique gift for prose. Finally, after three weeks of writing, he challenged her to a game of H.O.R.S.E.. She beat him. It was love at first H.O.R.S.E. 11 months later, she received the opportunity to work in Prague and they buckled down for long-distance-love. Thousands of miles apart and hundreds of love letters later, he proposed to her in the fairytale town of Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic.

Three important details about our Ultimate Wedding.
An outdoor wedding, on a flower farm near home. Oozing with personal style…shabby/chic with a euro-ecclectic, romantic and unique flair. Family and friends from around the world. Polish flavour. Global love. Superhero-themed. Juicy Lucys served on a silver platter. Red bull/vodka fountain. TOMS shoes...and lots of 'em. As much dancing as possible…and then more. Bonfire with s’mores. A hired ice-cream truck. Wishing on Chinese lanterns and releasing them into the air.
Our everyday dream day.
Relentless exploration as a couple…of the world, new recipes and the gummi candy aisle. Thinking beyond ourselves, and helping others. Mutual laughter. Broadening our worldview through words on pages or steps on cobblestone in European cities. Early morning trips to the gym on weekends and long naps in the afternoon. Bringing back the family dinner. Meaningful conversation. Back rubs after a long day at work. Enjoyment of the gifts God has given us. Like, for instance, Sebastian Joe’s oreo ice cream. And, of course, many, many games of H.O.R.S.E.
Happy voting! Happy Sharing (as I always say...sharing is caring!:))!

  1. I liked this story very much. You do have a gift of prose. What is this about an ice cream truck? Love your mother.

  2. As long as you promise not to tell Tom, I prefer your one. It might be just because I know you better and this sounds like you. Anyway, good luck! Barbara
