A Big Thank You!

Planning a wedding is tough. I think we’re beginning to understand why wedding planners get paid the big bucks.

There are so many little details they don’t tell you about before you get married. When will you get your marriage license? How many people do you want to sit at each table? Where would you like the cake placed during the reception? Have you timed out the big day… down to the minute? Are all your vendors communicating with each other? The list goes on, and on, and on…

When you don’t hire a wedding planner what you save in money you make up for in your time. However, if we could go back and do it all over again, we’d still plan the wedding ourselves and there are 2 reasons why:

  1. When you plan your wedding, and you get your own sweat and blood in the mix, the big wedding day feels so much more real. And we’re hoping that on 6.10.12 you’ll be able to see our hands in all the intricate details. We’ve worked so hard and put so much thought into this day, we hope that comes through to our friends and family.
  2. As we look back on this whole process though, we realize there is only one true reason why we’re able to plan this special day. Jason and I spend hours talking through the day, agonizing over pain-staking details and moving and shaping the elements until they are exactly the way we want them to be. We’re only able to do that because of the amazing support system we have in our families. Between our parents, we have been given a structure that allows us to be flexible and really strive for a wedding day we’ve always imagined. We are both aware that, without our families and their support, we wouldn’t be able to make this day happen… and for that, we are so thankful.

We’re 52 days away from the biggest day in our lives and we are so excited that you will be there to share this day with us. Thank you to our friends, we’re going to make 6.10.12 the biggest party of the year! And thank you to our families, we love you more than you know and we are so thankful for the love and support you’ve shown us through all of this!
