Security Clearance: Check!

Sara, Mom, and I bundled up and headed over to the base to meet with the catering coordinator. It was great to see the ballroom again, especially since it was set up for a 300 person luncheon. Even better, I got to see my future father-in-law who was there for a meeting, and Dale Carey, the wonderful gentleman who is sponsoring our reception.

It looks like we're going to be able to have everything we want including an extra large dance floor, plated dinner, open bar, and chair covers (my personal favorite, something Chris just doesn't understand. We'll just chalk it up to testosterone.) Let no one say you can't have a beautiful wedding on a budget. And if someone asks how, I have two words: wedding coordinator. Sara is absolutely wonderful and the only way Chris agreed to let me plan the wedding. She takes away the stress and knows exactly what and how to ask questions so we get all of the information we need.

I'm amazed at how much we got done in just a day and a half. I'm also sending the official contract to our photographer tomorrow and have reached out for information on limos and string quartets. Now I just need to focus on one day at a time, because I only get to do this once.

We're down to just needing one more idea for centerpieces. If anyone sees eggplant or deep purple candle holders like the ones below, please let me know. Below are the pictures of the ones we have. It looks stunning at night with the candles lit, but you'll have to wait for the wedding to see it.

  1. Yay! I'm so glad you posted pictures - I was going to ask you to take some! Will you e-mail me the pictures that you took??

    Thanks for letting me be a part of the big day - it was so great spending time with you and your mom (and Chris too - for a few minutes!)

    Can't wait for the big day...but let's not wish it away! :)
