Sooooooooo we found a photographer who we love. I met with her yesterday and her personality and work are both wonderful. FI and I discussed it last night and decided that we want to go with her for sure.
So I emailed her this morning once I got to work to tell her. As soon as I sent the email I had a mini panic attack. We have holds on the venue and caterer, etc while we’re deciding for sure but this is the first thing that we’ve committed too (other than our date) and it was a little scary!!!
Did anyone else feel this way, even when you thought you were completely sure??
I’m relieved to have it taken care of but…yikes!!

I freaked out a lot once we had chosen our venue. It was totally the right decision, and I love it (I actually have liked it since my sister toured it when she was getting married a couple years ago), but I panicked. I think it’s just because it’s such a huge decision.

I think it is too, after I took a second to remind myself how sure we were I felt better. It was just the initial shock lol

The first thing we booked was the venue. Signing the contract and handing over the deposit was deff a nerve-wracking moment! It made me stop and think “wow… this is really happening!” Haha kind of a good and bad feeling all wrapped into one. You are not alone!

After our engagement, which was on vacation, we came home and I hopped on the computer to get started, and I wasn’t on there for 20 minutes before I started panicking, like omg do I want to do this? This is going to be so much money and so much work, what have I gotten myself into? For maybe 5 minutes I was ready to run for the hills! I’m pretty sure that came from sheer laziness though hahah

The only things I really freaked out about were the catering quotes. Seriously, just take my first born child! But I was rock solid and comfortable with our venue and photog choices. Got married in a museum I grew up going to with my uncle (who worked there 20+ years) and my cousin is on the event staff. Plus, I do a lot of photography and really related to our photog. Totally comfortable with that!

We’re putting our deposit for our photographer in the mail today. And the deposit is half the package price so it is a pretty penny!
We have family helping out with the wedding but the photographer is 100% on us to pay for. I LOVE her work and she was definitely a splurge. But I’m glad we’re going with her. It is going to be great!
But yes, mini panick attack about forking over the money lol.
