i got my laptop back last night! phewww! those few days without it were tough. i really love this little guy.
anyway, wedding details! the wedding! it's going to be on sunday, 9 january, 2011. 6 months away!
i'll start by sharing just a few details for our ceremony.
we found a little park yesterday in beverly hills for the ceremony. we're going to do it ninja style - sneak in, stake out, set up, get married, and get out. we're going for simplicity with the ceremony in order to save money. we want it feel really intimate, casual, & communal.
we are getting married under a huge, gorgeous, weepy tree. it's perfect. it's going to be like a picnic, basically. instead of chairs, i'm going to collect quilts in different colors & patterns and spread them out on each side of the aisle (the "aisle" will be defined by flower petals - no runner).
i'll have pillows scattered on the blankets, and each blanket will have a picnic basket with some snacks in it. i'm thinking bread, cheese, fruit, sparkling water - just a little something to tide everyone over 'til the reception. i don't want anyone to go hungry at my wedding!
i will also be collecting crates to scatter throughout the seating for older guests who don't want to sit on the ground.
we aren't going to be able to have any amps or speakers, so i'm seeing about getting a friend to play an instrument for the processional & recessional. (i've got my fingers crossed for a friend who is an insanely talented trumpet player. i hope he says yes!)
we took a little video of the park when we found it, so i'll share that once i upload it.
that's it for now! we are already starting to experience so much generosity from some really talented people. i can't wait to share more on that later when i have more time. sometimes people really surprise you. i have a feeling this wedding is going to change my life in more ways than one.
