Reception change!

Well i have had a busy week!  I feel awful for not much has happened i was just so overwhelmed!

We had fall break last week and charlie and his dad and friends went hiking in Tennessee!
This is Charlie on his last hike with my dad and his dad..for a month!
Hence the beard!

While he was gone my family went to a beautiful wedding at the location of our wedding!
It was raining when we arrived and we waited inside to see if the rain would hold off to have the outdoor wedding.  The skies cleared so we headed outside and while we were waiting it started sprinkling.  I felt so bad for the bride i was worried that she was upset but she didn't seem to be!  Afterwards she told my mom "what can you do?" which is so true.  I need to have that mentality more often.  When things happen that are out of control there is nothing you can do to change so just go with it and make the most of it!

Even though rain may fall on my wedding day i think it would be super cute to have a picture like this in rain boats and a wedding dress! 

God is so good that when they were saying there vows the most beautiful ray of sunshine that had been hiding literally all day fell right upon them.  It gave me goosebumps!  So amazing!  We then moved to a cocktail hour on the patio and had firefly sweet tea drinks!  My dad had a sip of one and had no idea what it was! Needless to say he didn't like it!
We then moved in to the main rooms for dinner and dancing.  It was really perfect for them but we are going to have twice as many people and you could not fit many more in the building.
We decided after that, that we were going to have to change the reception location.
It is sad but it definitely needs to be done...
The building is just way to small and spread out into several different rooms.
The ceremony will still be on the lawn and hopefully the rehearsal dinner will be there because i really love the building!  Its so beautiful!

On Sunday me, my mom, and charlie's mom went and looked at Marina Inn.
They were setting up for a March of Dimes Event but i loved it!
The building was soooo pretty!  There is a large ballroom and i smaller Hall entrance area that they called something like pre-function area...i think that is it!
Then the doors open and there is a patio with a fire pit!  Perfect!
Everything seemed to fall right into place....until...
I asked them about our date and he said oh, "I think we have a function that night but i will see if i can over ride it."  I had no idea what that meant!  But we told him how much we loved it and wanted to be there and he said he would call tuesday with the verdict!
After having a tour of the rooms, which were gorgeous, we went and sat in the lounge and talked about everything!

The Nautilis Ballroom

They had THE BEST lemonade and sugar cookies out!  I love me some lemonade and sugar cookies!  But nothing can compare to the Pink Lemonade at the Grand Floridian at Disney World. The absolute best!
We discussed how much we loved the place and what a blessing it was that we decided to change so early when we had enough time to do it right!

On Sunday we met with our wedding planner and talked about the wedding for about 5 hours!
I could have sat and talked longer!!

Remember that while all of this was going on Charlie was hiking and had no idea about anything because he didnt have a phone!

Oh, we also found a band at the Marina Inn.  They were setting up and practicing while we were sitting in the lounge.  They sounded soo good we went down and asked for a card.  They gave me a booklet, card, and a demo!  It was amazing.  The band is named Soul Function.  I think we might book them!

Charlie finely called on Monday night and i filled him in on everything!  Being the awesome guy he is he said, "That's fine, whatever you want!"  I'm not sure of that was being the "awesome guy" or the "i could care less where the wedding is" guy! haha

No im just kidding!  He really has done sooo much for the wedding planning.  He wants to know everything and is particular about it but wants me to love each thing, which in a way makes it easier on me because im not very decisive, and he definitely is!

I promise i will be back with a post soon!

Oh i forgot!
The man form Marina Inn called on tuesday and said we could still have the wedding June 12th!!!

Tomorrow is Race for the Cure!
I am soo excited  i have all of my gear ready!
The only dad took my camera to there will be no documentation of my awesome flag on my hat.....
maybe this is a good thing!

"It's been years since they told her about it
The darkness her body possessed
And the scars are still there in the mirror
Everyday that she gets herself dressed
Though the pain is miles and miles behind her
And the fear is now a docile beast
If you ask her why she is still running
She'll tell you it makes her complete

I run for hope
I run to feel
I run for the truth
For all that is real
I run for your mother, your sister, your wife
I run for you and me, my friend
I run for life

It's a blur since they told me about it
How the darkness had taken its toll
And they cut into my skin and they cut into my body
But they will never get a piece of my soul
And now I'm still learning the lesson
To awake when I hear the call
And if you ask me why I am still running
I'll tell you I run for us all

I run for hope
I run to feel
I run for the truth
For all that is real
I run for your mother your sister your wife
I run for you and me my friend
I run for life

And someday if they tell you about it
If the darkness knocks on your door
Remember her remember me
We will be running as we have before
Running for answers
Running for more

I run for hope
I run to feel
I run for the truth
For all that is real
I run for your mother, your sister, your wife
I run for you and me my friend
I run for hope
I run to feel
I run for the truth
For all that is real
I run for your mother your sister, your daughter, your wife
For you and me my friend
I run for life

I run for your mother your sister your wife
I run for you and me my friend
I run for life"
