Wedding Progress

Before I went on vacation I wanted to get some wedding things finalized so I could feel like I have accomplished something!

We went with my dad to pay the 2nd deposit on our ceremony/reception. While we were there we wandered around the hotel, it's nice to do just to keep excited! We also set up our food tasting at the hotel so that will be the first week in February. We are so excited!!

Adam FINALLY decided who his groomsmen and usher's will be. Huge sigh of relief since we are less then 5 months away and none of his guys knew anything! For those who care Adam's groomsmen will be...Brothers Joe & Curt will share the responsibility of Best Men. Adam has asked Joe to present the rings at the ceremony and sign the marriage license, and Curt will give the speech at the reception. Adam's "best" friend Evan will also be in the wedding party, as well as my brother James. (I haven't decided which of my bridesmaids will be walking with each groomsmen yet so I'll reveal that later).

Our Usher's will be my oldest brother Stephen and our friend Charlie, and our "Usherette?" will be my future sister in law Morganne. Initially we were going to have 4 ushers and 1 usherette but relationships have changed and I am looking long term here!

Lastly, but certainly not least, we booked our honeymoon!! My Grandpa blessed us with a one-week time share in the destination of our choice so after weeks of research and debate we finally decided on...

Santa Barbara Resort & Yacht Club in Pompano Beach Florida!!

The exterior

Each room has a private balcony, and did I mention there is a private beach??!!

The room with a full kitchen (that way we don't have to eat out for a week)

The sitting area in our room

The hotel pool and meeting area

We don't leave until the Friday after our wedding but then it's fun in the sun for one week. We are very excited to have this opportunity but leaving Addyson for an entire week will be tourture.

Until next time...


  1. Yay! That looks like so much fun! You guys are going to have a great time on your honeymoon. And I'm dying to hear about the ushers and relationships changing.
    Maybe we can get together for shopping tomorrow?
