Can you guess where these two lovebirds got engaged? On a hot air balloon! It only made sense that Floriza and Reycie incorporated an “up, up and away” theme into their engagement session. ”We wanted to reenact a fun, picnic scene in a secluded park,” she said. White netting hung from an oak tree to create a canopy; inside, were decorative pillows, blankets, and books, and outside, were fresh strawberries, cheese and crackers, chocolate cupcakes, and a bottle of raspberry champagne. Let’s not forget the bicycle too! View more photos here.

- Announce Your Engagement - Share one of our Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Google+ – friendly badges with family and friends. Our favorites? “We’re Gettin’ hitched,” “I have a sparkly new accessory!,” and “Bridezilla to-be.”
- Set a Date - You’ve probably heard this question over and over since two minutes after you got engaged. “When’s the big day?” “Have you set a date?” Break out your calendar and figure out the season and date for your wedding celebration. Once you have that taken care of, receive a FREE personalized checklist to help you stay organized throughout the process.
- Create a Budget - Before you start searching for vendors, you’ll need to figure out how much you can spend on your wedding. Use our budget tool to manage your expenses, track spending, and set up payment schedules.
- Start Your Guest List - Are you going to have a big wedding with all of your nearest and dearest or a small and intimate one? While you don’t have to have your final guest list right away, you’ll still need an estimate in order to figure out your venue needs.
