October 28, 2014 in wedding.
I feel like a b-word.
let me tell you why ..
see [J] + I had our dream wedding, on october 11th in the dominican republic. it was our dream for more reasons than one. we were on a tropical island. surrounded by 28 of our close family + friends.
finally marrying each other. but besides that, we had a wedding planner at the resort. and she was amazing! we picked all decor through photographs before we arrived. and on the day of our wedding, our only concern was if it was going to rain. [and if us girls could get ready before the photographer arrived]. everything else was taken care of. it was amazing. [I truly cannot say enough great things about the HRPC wedding team].
for our family + friends we did not get to celebrate with in the dominican [and for those who want to party with us again], we are having a wedding reception in my hometown at the end of november. I am very, very excited. not only for another chance to celebrate our marriage [and to wear my dress again], but to be with + surrounded by the people we love.
and I feel like a massive b-word, because planning a wedding is no easy task. let alone planning two. and I may have been spoiled by our destination wedding, but we still put in a lot of man hours. so instead of picking decor from photographs, we’re building our hometown wedding reception from scratch. [except for the tables]. it’s so daunting. and as my mom said, [J] + I are perfectionists. which isn’t necessarily true, but if we’re going to do this ..we’re going to really do it.
it’s just stressful.
we had a site visit last saturday, and it went great. we got a ton accomplished. then we went to lunch & created a list of items we need. the list was practically never-ending. we got to sample cupcake flavors. on sunday, we met my grandparents for coffee. [J] + my grandpa created a mock up of the centerpieces we’re constructing.
at the end of the day, I know this is going to be amazing. and we’ll make it our dream
