I've had an annoying day, so rather than whine about all the things I want to whine about, I will write about my wedding. I have 2 reasons for doing this: 1) I'm excited about it, and 2) hopefully I will be inspired to do some more much needed planning of it.
All our save-the-date / announcements have gone out and now everyone knows we are getting married in Yosemite at the Ahwahnee Hotel. We sent out puzzle boxes (also known as secret boxes) with a ribbon inside. You had to figure out that you needed to wrap the ribbon around something to read the writing. The writing then directed you to our website and the final answer of where we are getting married. We did it this way because certain people were already complaining about traveling. (It may come as a surprise to you, as it did to me, that not all wedding news is happy news for everyone.) No matter where we had it - SOMEONE had to travel, so we are making everyone travel to Yosemite. The fact that it was a surprise and no one expected Yosemite - diffused it a little. Plus, once you see pictures of the hotel and the park - only grinches can really complain. Here are some particularly lovely photos by QT Luong. We are getting married outside - with a waterfall in the background. April and May are peak waterfall months, so it should be roaring!
