"I made the decision about five minutes before we went out for the walk," says Jason. "With our schedules, if I waited for the perfect night for a getaway, we'd have to wait for months."
The ring: "The only thing I knew was that she liked her mother's ring," says Jason, "and she didn't want me to spend a lot of money. She thought we could use the money in more important ways."
Jason says Faith's mother's ring was very classic, in yellow gold.
"I have a friend who owns a gold trading company, who called and told me, 'I just got this ring. It's beautiful, but it's from an estate and it's in yellow gold.' I said, 'That's interesting because that's what I was looking for.' It's a classic-looking ring with a princess cut diamond.'
The Wedding: "Our goal is to be about our guests, and not about us," says Faith.
With that in mind, the couple will have a welcome party for out-of-town guests at Frank & Nick's West End Grille, following a smaller rehearsal dinner for the wedding party.
The ceremony will be at Our Lady of Good Counsel on Fort Avenue, officiated by Father John Williamson. The reception for "about 200" will be held at Tabrizi's.
They're not really going for a strong theme, except to make things as "Baltimore" as possible. Like the wedding transportation Jason's lined up -- a purple Ravens fan bus.
When it came to her dress, Faith says she broke a cardinal rule at a bridal shop in Bel Air.
"I tried on a Jim Hjelm dress that was really expensive," she says. " They added a sash by Pronovias and I loved all of it. But, I could not [spend the money]. My sister said, ':et's just go over to David's Bridal for fun.' I showed the woman there the picture and they had another dress that was discontinued that was just like it.'"
She describes it as a strapless ivory satin gown with a sweetheart neckline, drop-down V-back, trumpet skirt and no decorations,
So, she got it and went back to the bridal shop for the sash.
Faith also wanted to save money on flowers.
"I don't like flowers,' she says. "They cost a lot of money and then they die".
So, she's playing with a bouquet made with birch, holly, and baby's breath -- "more of an organic, rustic look rather than a floral bouquet."
"The centerpieces will be some sort of wreath. So, whoever ends up with it at the end of the night has a wreath for the season," she says, "The only flowers there will pots of red poinsettias, which I'll donate to the church, so they can decorate with them for the Christmas season."
While the colors will be the couple's favorites -- green and gold -- they will only be used as accents for the bridal party. Her matron-of-honor and four bridesmaids have been told they can wear any cocktail or tea length black dress they want.
The groomsmen will be in black tuxes with green cummerbunds or ties.
Faith has a history with wedding photographer Terry Pozniak of tPozPhotography.
"She was my first client ever on LivingSocial," she says. "I've watched her grow and she is an amazing photographer. She's awesome."
