What a difference a day makes

A year ago today, this happened.

IMG_0385 IMG_0433 Much to my surprise, I have been very laid-back in my approach to our wedding. Having worked on and gone to so many weddings, both Dave and I were pretty certain about what we wanted for our own celebration. We had the date picked and the big four – celebrant, venue, photographer and videographer – booked within a month of announcing our engagement. We then sat back and waited for the 11 months to pass until the big day. It seemed like it would never arrive.

Now, 10 of those months have passed. The wedding is less than four weeks away and we are moving through all the final details on our to-do list. On Friday night, we took our parents to our reception venue to help us choose the wedding menu. It started out like a regular family dinner, but over the course of the evening we all realised that the day is coming.

We realised that in a matter of weeks, my Dad will walk me down the aisle towards the man he already considers a son.

That in a matter of weeks, Dave and I will stand in front of all the people we respect most to declare our love and commitment to one another.

That all the people we love will be in one room. (That there will also be champagne and cake in the room is a bonus).

That our two families will be joined and together, we will start a new family.

That in a matter of weeks, I will marry my best friend.

I am SO EXCITED.
