So, the wedding planning continues. This is quite an undertaking as I knew it would be. But I just really want the chance to stand up with Gary in front of God and those dearest to us and make our vows to each other. I like the idea of having witnesses to that. Plus, it includes your loved ones in the whole process. I think we are going to make sure and have a part of the ceremony that asks our guests to make a vow with us. After all, you look to the people in your life to support and encourage you in everything you do, right?
We finally found a photographer and I'm pretty happy about it. If we can just get a florist and, most importantly, an officiant by the end of the year, then I will feel like we are in a good place. The officiant is kind of tough. We both really want an ordained minister but we need a ceremony that will reflect both of our beliefs. I think we can do it. It's just a matter of finding the time to interview all of these people. We found one woman we liked but she wanted $650 and that was just out of the question. There seems to be a real business in this whole officiant thing. Maybe that can be my new job. I'll get ordained online and start performing wedding ceremonies for $500 a pop. Sounds like fun.
