We made a deposit at our venue. We’re getting married July 16, 2011!
It’s a good feeling.
Also, I love the event manager there. He’s the most laid back person on the planet. We asked if having a vegetarian option counts as one of our menu choices, and he said, “No way, we’re not going to charge you for having a few weird friends.” We asked about spaces where we could have a yichud, and our wedding planner started to explain that it is a time for the bride and groom to have a moment of peace, and Collin interjected, “I thought it was for banging,” and the event manager said, “Yeah that’s where my brain went too. I wasn’t going to say anything, though.”
Another highlight: as we were walking out, Collin and I kept hugging and kissing, and the hostess said, “Are you getting married?” I pretty much shouted “YES!” back at her.
