A quick question.

Thursday, June 26th, 2008

So, Scott and I had set a tentative date for June 20th, 2009, but I’m going to have to take a Spanish class that doesn’t end until June 24th. And I don’t want to get married while I’m still in school. And then we were thinking about June 27th, but do I really want to [...]

That would explain why I’ve never met a pleasant notary.

Meaghan and I have someone in mind to perform our wedding ceremony, but they’re not an ordained minister. (We want to have someone we know, and neither of us are interested in a religious service.) The laws about who can perform a marriage vary state by state — I’m performing a wedding for friends in [...]

Ben Moser made my week.
If she loves you enough to take your picture when you’re in that getup, that’s considerable. If she loves you enough to pose for a picture with you in that getup, that’s remarkable. If she loves you enough to pose for a picture with you in that getup and then posts [...]

If you don’t know me very well, you should know that I love barbecue. Like, for serious. I’d be willing to wager that I have the only offset barrel barbecue rig on the entire island of Manhattan, which I stubbornly brought with me from North Carolina. I believe in Lexington-style barbecue, shoulder only, cooked low [...]

So, I know we were planning on using our iPods for the wedding reception, but as I was driving back from the airport this morning, I remembered that I had a really cool lecturer a few semesters ago at UNCG whose band played a lot of weddings in the area. His name is Chuck Folds [...]

The frugal groom.

After a meeting this morning, a few of us were sitting around shooting the breeze and one of the guys told a story about how his wife being with him at a business conference and being totally delightful did wonders for him with a potential client. He’s been married for 32 years. My boss had [...]

Oh my goodness. Several of Scott’s friends have recommended Ken Luallen to be our wedding photographer, and I have been pouring over his website all morning. His photos are breathtaking. I will even admit to running to the bathroom in tears over how beautiful some of his pictures are (I’m at work, and I’d imagine [...]

Goodness gracious.

I bought this domain name last night, thinking that a wedding blog would be fun. And why wouldn’t it be? Everyone loves weddings, everyone loves blogs, so this just screams synergy. As an Internet professional, these are the kinds of opportunities I look out for and exploit. I’m good at what I do.
Anyways, I bought [...]
