Wow, it has been quite a while since I have written a blog outside of the podcast posts. Hopefully from here forward, that will change! I think between now and when I get married, I should be able to write a #WeddingWednesday post each Wednesday to keep you up to date on wedding planning and the associated festivities! I will go back to sharing my makeup work and reviews and other fun stuff on weekends! Alright, let’s kick this off, shall we! Welcome to #WeddingWednesday: Wedding celebration #1!
Tommy and I made the most out of a weekend in February. We came home for a Marquette Basketball 100th Anniversary Reunion (which included an awesome alumni game that Tommy played in), and also did our tasting for our reception, Tommy was interviewed on the radio (which was awesome because he mentioned me and gave me a “standing ovation” – haha), we met with the church to start planning our reception, I tried on wedding dresses with my amazing maid of honor, and best of all – we managed to fit in Wedding Celebration #1!
If you’re thinking “I know it’s #WeddingWednesday: Wedding celebration #1!, but what’s a wedding celebration?” I’ve got you covered! Basically, it was a wedding shower where we were asked not to be showered with gifts… We live in a TINY apartment and had to fly home, so gifts would be a challenge!
It was AMAZING to have all of our friends and family in one place at one time, and it was special, because the location, Koz’s Mini Bowl, was actually the same place where we had our going-away party two years ago… And unbeknownst to me, where Tommy first asked my dad for my hand in marriage!
I hope you love the photos! I am blessed that one of my best friends is an awesome photographer! He took them… And if you’re wondering why there’s a focus on nacho cheese… Well, as it turns out, another of my best friends can be bought… Tommy bet my maid of honor to drink the cheese, and she did!
Well, I hope you enjoyed this first edition of #WeddingWednesday: Wedding celebration #1! More to come! #Bricetomeetyou
