What are the steps for buying your first home and starting your life together with a new spouse?

My boyfriend and I will soon be getting married, and both of us have good jobs, enough for a downpayment, etc, and I am a little naive on what it takes to start looking or what the steps are for claiming a new home.....I know loans, real estate agents, etc, but if someone in this situation has time to give a detailed answer, that would be terrific. Such as step by step action, and who we would need to talk to for each step, etc. We dont want an apartment at this age because we feel it doesnt give us the opportunity to save up enough. Thank you inadvance for your assistance!!!!!!!!
