Getting Married at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral!
Hello everyone!! It feels like a lifetime ago that I posted and a lot of you have been wondering where in the world I’ve wandered off to this time. Well as most of you know I’m getting married to my sweet Bren-whom I’ve been with for 5 years now. I’ve been elbows deep in color swatches, work, bridal magazines, and more. He was also busy looking into sites like https://stagmadness.com/prague, in order to plan a lads trip away. I guess I couldn’t say no. I should add that during this whole time I’ve had a smile plastered on my face. There’s so much to look into. From wedding invites, transport decisions such as arriving in something like a wedding limousine, a car, taxi or even a bus to the dress, bridesmaids and so much more. My next job is to send out wedding invitations to my wonderful family and friends! It’s been forever since I’ve spoken to some of my cousins so I’d imagine I’ll need to go online and find people and their new addresses to post the letter. I get a feeling this is going to be a long process…!
I have several updates for everyone.
- We set a date: June 10th, 2017
- We are officially getting married at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral– yes that one! On 5th avenue!!
- We booked a venue! 620 Loft & Garden
It’s been such a fun experience (and yes a little stressful) but I am beyond excited. Brendan and I were unsure if the cathedral would marry us because he is Jewish. I honestly don’t know another couple like us to have been married there. I was delighted that the Priest working with us at the cathedral was incredibly open to marrying us. In the next post I’ll talk more about how we came to book the cathedral and the details on the venue. 🙂 The venue itself is actually across the street from St. Patrick’s. For now, here are some photos!
Here is the venue:
The most important thing I’ve learned through my prior experience with working weddings is the details are very personal as well as important, but being able to marry someone you truly love will make it the most magical day of all- not what kind of lighting you have. People do tend to go overboard with the decorations, but they just want to make the venue look as gorgeous as possible. However, the only important thing is that you’re marrying the person that you want to spend the rest of your life with. Before we agreed to get married, we’d been together for 5 years. That is a pretty long time, so we’re certain that getting married is the right option for us. Hopefully, we’ll be together for the rest of our lives once we’re married, but anything can happen. We could end up needing to find a divorce attorney, but we’re hoping that we know each other well enough to stick this out! However, committing your life to someone else is a big deal, so it’s definitely something that both people need to be confident about. It would be horrible to fall out of love with the person you married, so make sure you both want to spend the rest of your lives together.
Do you have any wedding advice or remember seeing something at a wedding you’ve been to? I can’t wait to hear all about it, share it with me in the comments.
