So, as a bride-to-be, I have found that the best character trait one can have is the ability to roll with the punches. Luckily for those around me, I adapt well to change. It is with this in mind that I announce a little change in plans. To be short:

Buena Vista is out, and the Alabama Wildlife Federation is in.

The details are unnecessary. All anyone should need to know is that I am happy with the change and fervently planning the Sherrill-Gilmore extravaganza in Millbrook. I am excited that the wedding ceremony and reception will now all be in one place, with lots of room.

AND it will be a little more outdoorsy and pretty and wilderness-like, but still covered with enough room so there is 0 chance for a rain-out. Here is a picture that does not really do the size/aesthetics justice:

Right now I am focused on learning how to make pomander balls, which I am going to use to decorate the isle, figuring out how much it would cost to make an arch/cabana/chuppah, and making about a million boxes for favors. 

I hope all of you are incredibly jealous of how crafty and industrious I am, rather than secretly laughing at me for trying to do so much by myself. See yah in less than 3 months!


  1. I really hope we see some bears.

  2. I just now realized you had a blog and read the entire thing in one sitting. Everything looks so awesome so far! I hope you are having fun with the planning - it can be a bit stressful at times, but it's all worth it in the end. Weddings are the bees knees. I can't wait to see you this weekend and help Nathan with the photoshoot. Loves. :)
