Happy Tuesday Friends!
So before I even get involved in my post for today, I just wanted to put out there that things are getting a little bit crazy up in here.
I think there is something like 25 days until I become Mrs. Alabama. YAY!
But with that, I must give a little disclaimer that Beyond Destination 26.2 might be lacking a bit in posts over the next few weeks.
It’s just that between training for a marathon, planning my own wedding, and getting things all set at work so I can take off for 2 weeks has put every part of ME into high gear.
And my emotions are ALL OVER the place. And so is my wedding brain.
So don’t worry if my posting is irregular for the next few weeks, it’s just me in wedding mode!
So even though it’s only Tuesday not officially “Wedding Wednesday”, I’m going to talk wedding stuff. It’s apparent that it’s WAY more on mind than running these days. But you should feel lucky, because I will not deprive you of your Wedding Wednesday Post tomorrow.
This past weekend I spent up in the beautiful and scenic McCall, Idaho.
We were there to celebrate the wedding of my two dear friends, whom I have known since High school.
Their wedding was perfect and was so “them”.
I couldn’t have been happier to celebrate in their special day with them.
I will admit though, that due it being a “certain time of the month” (TMI – sorry) my emotions have and continue to be all over the freaking place.
I was bawling my head off before the Mother of the bride even started walking down the aisle.
I do think though, that a lot of the emotion built up into their wedding is a reflection of the intense stress I’m currently under to pull off an equally awesome and perfectly “US” wedding.
And just a side note, my day job involves event planning & coordination. So I spent a lot of the evening paying attention to the flow and transition of the night, and the other half making sure I had full glass of wine in front of me. (I wanted to be sure I was ready for the toasts! Sheesh, I’m not that much of a lush!)
There was a super cute surprise when it came time for the Father-Daughter/ Mother-Son dance.
They all four busted out into a unison choreographed dance. It was awesome!
Such a cute and fun idea!
And the cake, oh the sweet delicious cake.
It was made by my bestie Maria! And decorated by my bridesmaid Christa. Love it!
Watching the love and excitement of these two friends of mine and all their loved ones around them, left me full of happiness for the happy couple.
But also gave me a lot of anxiety for my own big day ahead.
I’m the event planner, you know the person behind the scenes…not so much the person who is smack dab center of attention.
That part is going to be hard for me I think. But I know once I see my handsome J. Alabama waiting for me at the end of the aisle, I won’t be able to focus on any other thoughts but him.
I’m excited for what lies ahead. And I know that everything will turn out just as great as the wedding of my dear friends this past weekend. Because when two people love each other as much as J. Alabama and I, nothing else really matters.
So bring on Wedding Month!
See you all tomorrow for the official Wedding Wednesday!
