Let me explain myself...

So, I haven't been here for quite some time... and a few things have changed since then.

1. We're NOT getting married in Rehoboth any longer.  Approximately 3 months ago, my parents informed me that they didn't like the venue we had chosen in Rehoboth Beach, DE.  I had a choice as to whether or not I still wanted it there, but I suppose I didn't want to let my parents down.  I want their approval and I don't want them to be disappointed in anything.  Therefore, we moved the wedding back home, to Pittsburgh, PA.  In their defense, I understood where they were coming from and it wasn't the distance is was the specific venue.  Also, sometimes I thought that traveling to YOUR wedding would be more of a hassle than anything else.  It wasn't meant to be, but maybe later on down the road we can plan a little trip to renew our vows or something there.

Anyway, rethinking the entire wedding was a bit hard, considering I was practically starting from scratch 6 months before my wedding date.  We took many trips home to check out various venues, while keeping our parents in mind throughout all the tours.  Luckily, there were many venues that still had some May dates available.  We had to sort through the venues and decide which one made most sense.

We finally chose, Southpointe Golf Club, located about 20 minutes from our parents.  It is an amazing venue and was actually one of the least expensive, which is always nice.  We are keeping the same date, May 14, 2011 and we are very excited about it!

We are expecting around 150 guests (+/-) and it's going to be the time of our lives.

We have also chosen a photographer for the day!  It's the same couple that shot Anna and Brett's wedding in early August!  They did an amazing job and they have the exact style we were looking for.  It's a great thing that they were still available!

Now all I have to figure out is a DJ, figure out colors, flowers, invitations, accommodations, and hope that the officiant we want is still available. :)  SEE!  NOT TOOOOO BAD! :)
