The Engagement!

I've got to say, I thought my wedding day would NEVER get here. My husband and I were engaged for two and a half YEARS before tying the knot (We wanted to both finish up our degrees first). As annoying as it was, having that extra time to plan and design every little detail of our big day was very much appreciated when it started coming down to the wire, especially since we got married in Asheville, NC and we both lived in Raleigh. Something I've noticed with clients and friends who have gotten married or who are getting married is that people want to rush to the alter. Cherish the engagement! Believe me, I was so ready to get married by the time December 22nd, 2012 rolled around, but I have so many amazing memories with my husband during our engagement. Going antiquing in Asheville on the weekends for the items for our centerpieces, trying cakes together, dropping our save-the-dates and wedding invitations in the mail and eagerly waiting for the RSVPs. I loved it!! The day will get here, I promise! Instead of wishing the engagement away, cherish every single second of it. It's only the beginning of your forever! <3
