Its been a long time coming but I finally know where I will be getting married. Its kind of a big deal to go beyond saying youre getting married to actually having a place for the ceremony. It has worried me for the last few months that we didnt have a venue for the ceremony, and the time is quickly winding down. We knew we both wanted a church ceremony. However, relocating to a new city and not yet having a church home, meant there was to be some work and researching to be done in order to find a site.After talking with people and visiting numerous locations we have found a church that would be good for the ceremony, but also a place where we enjoy the service and community that it offers. Let us just hope I dont start second guessing the decision (I have a tendency to do that about almost everything). It does feel good though to have this part settled. Now time to move on to the details.I am thinking there will be minimal ceremony decorations. The church sanctuary is already beautiful and I dont want to take away from that by adding a lot of distractions. I have been thinking of ideas for the pews, and a few other possible accents. Should be interesting what I come up with. I am still in shock that this year is nearly over, and May is only months away! I remember when I first got engaged, and we set a wedding date for over a year away. It then seemed like we had all the time in the world. Today I feel the total opposite, and cant believe how close it is. Good thing I have one more thing crossed off the to-do list.
