Hi blogger friends, are you still there?

Hello blogger friends,

I know it's been a month or so since I last blogged, please forgive me! We are now down to 39 days until we get married....again. Yes. That's right. Again.

In order to have a symbolic ceremony in the Dominican Republic we have to present our marriage certificate and in the state of NY it can take up to 30 days to receive that. We realized this last week when we went for our marriage license and decided that we couldn't wait much longer since were almost at the month mark. One phone call later and we were confirmed to meet with the judge this past Monday.
It honestly didn't hit me that this was for real until the judge started speaking and we had to hold hands. My knees got a little weak and the butterflies fluttered. I was extremely happy and at the same time trying to convince myself this wasn't the real marriage since I didn't want it to take away from our ceremony next month. It was about a minute and half and we didn't exchange rings which was great.

I now pronounce you Mr. and Mrs!

Ok I know I know....we decided not to call each other husband or wife until after September 18th but it is hard at times. You may be wondering, "well what date will you celebrate your anniversary on?" since we get that a lot from people and the answer is: the day we exchange our vows will be the day we celebrate, September 18th.

Seriously life gets so busy the last month and half with wedding planning ESPECIALLY when your close friend is getting married a month before you. I'm sorry I've been M.I.A. but I promise to blog more leading up to the big day!

Anybody finding it crazy busy the last month before the wedding??


  1. Congrats! I think it's great - it kinda relieves the stress and anxiety a little doesn't it? We thought about doing it too since we wanted something small that snowballed outta control - just the 2 of us.

    And YES this last month is driving me INSANE! I just want to sit on the beach already!! LOL

    Glad you're back. ;)

  2. Girl you know what kind of month I have had and I have 25 days......AHHHH!!!! Congrats though and I can't wait to hear all about it. :)

  3. CONGRATS!! You both look so happy! Cant wait to see your Sept 18th so close!! I def understand about being crazy busy and running around trying to finish everything and i bet its even more crazy for a destination wedding. :)

  4. Yes! Its sooo busy! Congrats to you two! I would do exactly what you are doing and celebrate the wedding day anniversary :)

  5. Thank you ladies!!! Having the legal part over with makes me a tad more relaxed. :)
