No. 1 — On Sunday we said goodbye to one of our priests at St. Joesph’s, Fr. Dennis. Father was a hoot, always so personable and just a great evangelizer. He truly will be missed, by the hourlong wait we had to say goodbye! Yes, there was a line, and it was still long when we left. Father was going to marry us next year, and we worried that because he was running a hermitage, he would no longer fill that role. WE WERE WRONG! We can request to have him be our celebrant. This makes me a happy Catholic, because I want someone we have a connection to and that will be loving and inviting during our wedding, as many of our guests are of other religions or none at all. (Not that the other priests at St. Joseph’s aren’t great; they are amazing, too! We just have a relationship with Fr. Dennis.
No. 2 — Meeting 2 with another photographer, NOVA Studios. They were awesome, too, and do a lot of work for a great deal. Now on to one more photography studio and then the final decision!
No. 3 — Trying to find “our song” has been a pain. How can you find a song that you both like, has the right lyrics AND wasn’t a song between you and your ex? Plus, it needs to be a slow tempo, right? Well, not for us. Somehow Jamieson and I stumbled upon Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros a long time ago and fell in love with the group’s song “Home.” It is a little bluegrass, a little hippy, a little love. I love this song. He loves this song. It is our song.
