Licensed to Wed!

It's official!  As of Monday June 27th, we can get married (yea it's post dated)!

Yesterday was a whirlwind day.  We got up at 6:30am to head out to PA to be at the Lehigh County Court House around 8am when they opened.  Well I was having a little difficulty getting started in the morning and forgot all of these things until the last minute (printing out the table layout for the florist, getting out my Social Security Card and Passport, filling up on gas).....anyhoo, we got to the courthouse a little after 8am and there was already a couple meeting with the marriage license person so we had to wait anyway.

Around 9am we were back on the road to head out to Wind Gap to meet with the DJ.  After heading down some kinda creepy roads, we found his place and he was definitely the right choice.  We're super excited to work with him and for a couple of surprises for our guests that you'll have to wait to see.

After a long and productive meeting with the DJ, we were back to Atown for a quick stop with the Limo company to give a deposit and sign our contract.  The limo company is in an office in the Masonic Temple of Allentown.  If you've never been in a Masonic Temple....they're a little scary and reminded me of Peggy Sue Got Married....HUGE building

Then it was a quick run to Egner Chapel to meet with the organist and go over church music.  I must say, he was excited on our recessional selection and you all better sing!  We will print all music in the program so that everyone can sing along but we're really counting on the whole place to sing as we leave the chapel.

By this point our bellies were super grumbly because it was already a little after 1 and we had about 50 minutes to spare before our meeting with the florist so we headed over to Brew Works to drop off another check and grab some grub....nothing like a pulled pork sandwich to get your through a hectic day.

Finally our day came to an end when after a stop at the florist to check out a mockup centerpiece and man am I glad we did that.  The florist thought we were using small round tables versus 72 inch rounds and so our centerpieces were a little smaller than we anticipated so it was good to give her the diagram and explain the issues with size.  Thankfully we had gone over expenses before heading out so we were able to maneuver some things with the florist and still fall in our budget.

Phew!  55 days and counting!
