- Wedding: February 2013
Okay, so I’ve been engaged 10 days and I just want to relax and enjoy being engaged, but I can’t really, not quite yet. See, I need to find a place and set a date asap because next February is the end of summer in New Zealand and prime marrying time in Nelson particularly. I also have family and friends who need to be able to book plane tickets over here soon, so I really need a solid date. So today we went out looking at churches and talked about reception venues. First church was locked and we hadn’t been able to reach the pastor to get let in. Second church is my favorite one in the area. Third church was Catholic, so we can’t use it. Fourth was lovely but had two aisles instead of one, weird. Last place on the list was the winner. It’s a local heritage park that I love with lots of buildings and vintage shops. Centrally located, cheap-as-chips cost to use (it’s managed by the city council) and the church on site is PERFECT. I love it so much and the reception space is what we need and had loads of potential. When I went to the office to book it, the calendar said my date was available. So we are penciled in for February 26th. Contract and details to be worked out this week sometime. Woohoo! Now I can relax.
