It’s almost Christmas and I’m about to put wedding planning on the shelf for about two weeks. I’m feeling pretty comfortable with where I’m at right now and happy with how things are looking.
After much searching, I found a photographer I just love, Clara Images. They do fantastically artistic and unique work for a really reasonable price, comparatively, I am actually able to purchase their unlimited package, which is more photographic coverage than I ever dreamed of when I started planning, and sure to be the number one thing that will make me feel like a princess all day, and help me to be happy with my wedding for the rest of my life. Pictures are the one part of the day that lasts. Oh yeah, and the commitment we’ll make to each other.
I also had someone from Butler Rents out to look at our yard and estimate what we’ll need. We’re getting an assortment of tables, some with umbrellas for the sunny parts of our yard, and we’ll be getting tables for food and cake and bar and just to place around the dance floor (our patio) for people to set drinks and whatnot on if they’re standing. We’re also getting keg coolers, how cool is that?
Jeremy is excited to build a small deck to place the head table on. We’re using the deck to cover my son’s sandbox, and we’ll place the head table on top of that. Meanwhile, I am excited to start cheese making, which I will probably do tonight when I start my gouda. Gouda has to age 6-9 months, and I will be making several batches over the next few weeks, because I’ve never made hard cheese before, and I think making a few batches increases my success chances. If we have too much, well, then we’ll be eating cheese for a while after the wedding.
Tomorrow we are going to try on wedding dresses. This is my second trying on of dresses. I’m being sort of secretive about the dress thing. I’m not sure why. Rest assured, I will never, ever share pictures here. Okay, maybe I will after the wedding.
