Two Months a Mrs.

It's hard to believe that it's been one year and one week that I was engaged and already IN the wedding planning process! And it's been two months of wedded life. And yes, it's been great! Might I say that it, more or less, still feels like we're dating ~ only that Andrew's storage boxes (and my own) filled my (now "our") apartment for a month! So much so that we couldn't walk from Point A to Point B without stubbing our toes, ankles, shins into something - no matter the distance! ...and I couldn't get my luggage through when we returned from our holiday vacation on the east coast.

The time that led up to the wedding was hectic with preparing welcome bags for our out of town guests...a project that took up more time than I imagined; creating a newsletter ~ another project that took longer than expected, but once I was on a roll, I couldn't stop!!!; and creating a music playlist. We selected ALL of our music ~ a daunting task, that I recommend couples who are going to do this, to start a month or two before their wedding (*at the latest*). Being musical people, we assumed we'd be able to pick out music for our pre-ceremony, ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and dance without a problem! Easy peasy! Not so much. It was just the opposite. BECAUSE we were musical people, we both had TONS of music, and TONS of music preferences, which we ended up having to compromise on. We were up many late nights and didn't finalize it all till the day before our wedding.

Many projects filled my time in those last weeks, which I will break down into separate posts in the next few weeks. As organized and "on top of things" as I was, without knowing the final guest count, there were so many details I couldn't take care of until the last few weeks.

With that said, the day was absolutely beautiful! The Disney Fairy Tale Wedding team and Brian Bosch's team did an AMAZING job, all of our guests had a fantastic time, and everything turned out more beautiful than I could've imagined!
