Going to the chapel, and I'm going to get married....

Well maybe not the chapel but Yes today is the day that I will marry the Love of my life, my soul mate, my friend and companion.

We are so excited for 'The Event of the Summer' as so many have begun to call it. However, if it wasn't for all of our friends and mostly family none of this would be possible...

We spent the day Friday setting up the tent, tables, chairs and dance floor with the help of two fine men from our local A to Z rental, joined by my dearest friends, Angelique, Sara and her cute husband Yani, and my BFF Melissa we set the tables with white linen table clothes and oversized yellow napkins. It was so much fun spending time with my dad and friends outside preparing for 'our day' outside.

While inside, the cooking was on... the wonderful aroma filled my parents beautiful home, with grilled vegetables and garlic. My mom's cousin Shari, an amazing chef, (she was the chef at last years 'Mad Hatter Show'.) She and Lynn (assistant chef) along with my mother were busy preparing FABULOUS food that will be served at our evening wedding.

I am so overwhelmed with the love and generosity that my parents have shown over the last few months as Josh and I plan and prepare for the joining of our two families. I am so thankful for being blessed with such wonderful parents that have taught me how to love, and be loved.
Thank you mom and dad! I love you both so much..

Thank you to everyone for being there and supporting us as we have made the decision to love each other and to love.

I know it was all breath taking beautiful. Definitely the event of the summer and I for one cannot WAIT for photos! I'm willing to bet a dollar to a stole the show.
You are so blessed with a loving family and I know you're marriage will be a long and happy one. I raise my glass to you all!
