So I just realized that I have not made the deposit on the church! I talked to the pastor and received the packet of information, but I had neglected to get the deposit in. I have no idea why I didn’t do this! I have stopped a couple of times to drop it off, but nobody was around. I know I can mail it in, but I feel better talking to someone. I do love the church! It’s not the little white church I grew up in and had pictured myself getting married in a thousand times, but the old brick and the beautiful landscaping more than makes up for it.
The inside is just beautiful with a lot of glass and the huge altar. The only thing that concerns me is they are in the middle of a remodel. I don’t know what their timeline is on that, or if it would affect us. It may be for the best! We have 440 people on our guest list. I know they won’t all show, but I would feel better if there were more seats! Right now it can comfortably hold 245. Now that reminds me I might have to tweak the invitations to ask who will be attending the ceremony. And while all this was running through my head, I realized we are at the 15 month mark. This is when most people start to plan, so I do have a leg up there, but it kinda shocked me that time has flown by. And summer always goes a lot faster, so I think it’s time I get started on all the DIY projects I have envisioned. And that means I better clean up the guest room for all those projects…and see where this is going?
The entire church and its people and so wonderful. Their choir is amazing and I have wondered about having them at our ceremony, They even have a bell choir! The pastor is one of the few in my lifetime whose sermons I actually look forward to and still remember months later. I can’t wait for our ceremony, which I want to be unique and include so much of our personalities. I love going to other weddings where it feels like the officiant seems to have known the couple since birth. It really makes for a wonderful ceremony full of laughs and memories. So I had better get my butt in there and put down that deposit!!!
