So, as complicated as it could be, wedding planning is fun! I have
been having a blast making some dreams become reality for our
wedding! I have been super busy working full time, planning the
wedding and renewing old friendships that I have had time for very
little else, actually.
Today we spent the day in Sebring, cementing some of the decisions
that needed to be made for the wedding. It was a big deal to have all
these people to meet in a short amount of time, but man, we had a
We met with the representative from Taylor Rentals in Sebring and
went to the park to check it out. He was great! He mapped out the
area where we'll be putting the tent, gave us opinions about table
spacing and room for cars in the parking area and was totally willing
to make anything happen for us! We are so pleased with them.
Our meeting with the caterer did not give us the exact same feeling
but she was good to work with and I was so glad to have this meeting
to talk face to face about our vision for the wedding.
I am excited about our florist! She was so friendly and
knowledgeable! I showed her the flowers that I liked and she got some
ideas together to do her magic. I really think she understood the
theme and feel of the wedding that I was going for and is going to
run with it.
The day, in all of its wonderfulness, was not without its wrong turns
and missed directions. :) Nate and I tried to decipher internet maps
and make sense of crazy roads as we toured the area looking for our
vendors. We got to go into the park again as we were planning and the
beauty of it just hit me again. I was reminded with each step why we
chose this park and how much I love it here. What an honor to begin
our married lives in such a great testimony of God's goodness to us!
Mission accomplished! We are back home, tired and a little more
excited than when we left. We are so excited that you may be able to
join us for our wedding! It should be a very special time!

I turned 25 yesterday and it was very fun! Two of the most important people in my life made me feel very very special. Also, the midnight crew helped to make it a birthday to remember. Today Nate and I went to see my parents in Okeechobee and pick up some of my furniture and things that were stored at their house. I was able to see some old friends and spend some quality time with my folks. They are so great.

Nate Proposes in Central Park
ahead of me I wanted to share that a week ago Nathan Flood asked me
to be his wife!
It all started when we headed to Central Park after attending church
on Sunday. I thought we were just going to walk around so I really
was not prepared for much excitement. Then, when we found
Shakespeare's Garden that my friend was looking for. Not two minutes
later Nate surprised me by walking up to me in a suit. Here's my
expression as I finally recognized him.
Imagine... ME.... speechless...
Nate and I had lost all time. We were alone together in that moment.
We had forgotten our friends and everyone else. We didn't even notice
that a crowd had gathered to watch. When we turned towards our
friends they yelled congratulations and a whole crowd of people
started clapping for us! It was so neat!
Don't we look great together!?!
gotten henna done. But, I am glad I was so surprised and the henna
will be nice memory. The ring fit beautifully and felt like it
always had always belonged to me. The ring is beautiful! Nate did an
amazing job designing it, but my favorite part about it is that HE
gave it to me. A week later I am still looking at it wondering why
God has chosen to bless me with such an amazing man. I hope that
wonder never ends...
