my life pretty much runs like this now days.
monday, tuesday, wednesday, thursday, friday:
work, school, and homework every night.
curled up in my room with very little human interaction.
learn, study, learn, study, take quizzes, write papers.
and try to relax for a second.
and then everything starts all over again.
it's getting quite mundane.
but this saturday we had an ULTRA wedding day.
and it was fun.
first we met with our photographer
photography is, naturally, the most important thing to me when it comes to the wedding.
i contacted her before we were even engaged back in November to make sure she could shoot my wedding.
we had a great time talking about ideas for the wedding.
and you could say i've very very very excited.
and nervous at the same time.
how is it photographers don't really like their picture taken?
then we met with the florist.
that was exciting and stressful.
for some reason i'm having the hardest time deciding what flowers i want.
or maybe it's hard for me to portray the feel i want to someone else.
but we figured some things out.
and i'm mostly really excited about my idea for the vases!
if you haven't noticed, i'm a details person.
then the most exciting part of the day!
we drove to orem to pick up my dress.
Barbara Gant made my dress.
she's my dad's relative, but also has made custom wedding dresses for years.
*side note: natalie hill from mormon in manhattan, also had her dress made by barbara.*
barbara was so great to work with.
she made my dress in like 4 fittings!
i took her pictures of different parts of dresses that i wanted
and she just made it.
kind of like my fairly godmother, out of thin air.
haha, just kidding.
when we got there she told me to put my dress on and left the room.
i pulled off the bag and gasped.
then clapped my hands together and jumped up and down like a ridiculous person.
it's so beautiful.
i love it.
i put it on and finally had that feeling when you know it's THE dress.
it was so fun.
i wish i could show everyone but i'm not showing lincoln until we have our bridal/groomal shoot.
we are going to do the "first look" thing.
so hold your breath.
and there are 95 days left until we get married.
