a hometown weekend.

May 28, 2014

[J] & I had the best of intentions to go to my hometown for memorial day weekend and get as much wedding planning done as possible. we started off strong; a meeting with a caterer, a walk-through at our reception venue, and a visit with a potential vendor. then we had dinner to celebrate my mom’s birthday ..and the weekend took on a different theme. more celebrating, less planning.

[*editor’s note: we’re getting married in the dominican republic, but we’re having a reception in my hometown. that’s what we need to plan].

the snapshots I caught definitely prove I was more for celebrating and relaxing. I did convince my dad to build a bonfire two beautiful nights in a row, right in the backyard.

[we quite literally sat in the driveway, with a cooler. it was entirely too nice to sit inside. I don’t know what my excuse is for not walking around to the backyard].

how was your memorial day weekend? did you travel any where exciting? is it just me, or is it hard to stay on task when traveling? my brain goes into vacation-mode the second I leave city-limits.

happy wednesday.

      I cannot claim to be a hero, just crazy. although if it were up to me, I’d plan one wedding, and only one. thankfully the destination wedding is been “easy”. so many decisions to be made. I’m just crazy.
