Wow. I can’t believe it’s been nearly two months since our big day. I guess we need to get those thank you cards finished! We finally got our professional wedding pictures and some pics from family and friends, and I’d like to do some recaps (inspired by WeddingBee) to help David and me remember the great time we had.
Thankfully, I was able to be in Florida for the week before the wedding. I did work remotely but I’m sure that we would not have be prepared if I didn’t work for a great company that allowed me to do so.
The weekend before our wedding, my company put on a conference. So Friday and Saturday I was busy doing my regular workload as well as doing work for the conference — including working overtime at the Friday night event and nearly all day Saturday. On top of all of this, I was trying to move as much of my stuff out of the townhouse I was currently living in to the apartment that David and I now live in. Thankfully, the place I was moving out of had a flexible move-out date, but moving was still a headache. Needless to say, I was exhausted.
Sunday morning, I had a 7 AM flight from Reagan in D.C. to Fort Walton Beach, meaning I had to be up at 4:30 AM. But, I was able to capture this amazing picture on my flight from D.C. to Charlotte:
When I finally got to Florida, I ate lunch with David and his family and then took about a four hour nap (like I said, I was exhausted). Later, we tried the new Five Guys in Fort Walton Beach and then I headed to my grandmother’s house for the night.
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday went by very quickly. I had work to do but I also had what felt like a ton of wedding stuff to get done. Over the course of these three days, we had a bunch of little details to take care of: we found a unity candle, bought cake boxes for guests to take cake home, created our ceremony programs, finalized our song request list, made our escort cards, prepared our bridesmaid/groomsmen gifts, created menus for the rehearsal dinner and found decorations for the church (our florist only created pew markers as I didn’t want the church to be heavily decorated). Don’t be fooled — these details take a lot of time!
More to come…
