I said yes! to Eric’s proposal, and we were launched into 10 months of crazy wedding planning. Not to mention that we would both be graduating from college, moving, and applying for and starting real jobs in the next six months.
We went back to school in January for our last semester, and I had a candle passing at my sorority to announce our engagement. I loved the fact that I now had a beautiful ring I got to wear on my finger so everybody knew I was taken.
I had always dreamed of a September wedding, and really wanted to get married over Labor Day weekend like my parents did. Those hopes were quickly squashed when my mom told me that people generally don’t want to attend weddings over holiday weekends, and the availability of our photographer and venue didn’t match up on any September date. So, we settled for the first weekend in October.
