Despite being busy with work, travel, and life in general, I have managed to get a few things accomplished related to our wedding. I've checked with the church and reception site to verify available dates in March and April 2011. We are good to go on that end, with a good bit of flexibility. As I mentioned, we were shooting for March 12 as our date, but since then, I met with a wedding planner. I really liked her and am in the process of deciding if I will actually use her and how we can work that added expense into the budget. That being said, if we do use her- March 12 is not an available date for her. So that explains why I checked on alternate dates with the church and reception site. I never thought of myself as someone who would consider hiring a planner since I LOVE weddings so much, but with the travel demands of my schedule and trying to arrange a hometown wedding- I'm beginning to think I need one.
In addition, I also have begun collecting information from photographers and bands, and that will affect the final date as well. Some of the vendors out of Birmingham are already booked for certain dates in March and April. One good thing about having a small town wedding- the demand for the church and reception site isn't exactly high, so we can be flexible with the date if there is a vendor we really love. Overall, we want to pull off a casual, yet elegant event and we want our guests to have a LOT of fun. So that's a little brief update- will keep you posted!
This is Trinity Episcopal- the location for our ceremony.

This is the only picture I could find, but this is Lyon Hall, where our reception will be held.

This is going to bring back so many memories, being at Lyon Hall. I get tears in my eyes just thinking of it. Seems like so long ago...
Enjoy it and take everything in. Soon, you'll be a Mommy of a 1 year old!!!
