It's a 'Happy Day' for two reasons: 1) We're excited to be launching our blog, and 2) Today marks my 11th Wedding Anniversary, which ties into how Celestine's Weddings came to be. It’s truly hard to believe that eleven years ago (9.28.02), it was my special day - my wedding day. And, little did I (or Edie) know that it would lead to the start of our Santa Rosa Beach wedding catering and florist business just one year later.
I have enjoyed sifting through the albums of wedding photos from our entire wedding weekend: Seeing how some have changed, some have not; seeing photos of loved ones who are no longer with us; the cousins who seemed so young and are now in college or married with little ones. Reliving the day; our wedding day is a day in my life that I vividly remember the details of the entire day.
I have chosen a few pictures (I have no digitial images) to share with you of our day; to say that the wedding world in our area has changed a lot in eleven years is definitely an understatement.
I wish you the very best with your wedding planning and most of all, I hope you have as much fun as I did (and still do!) planning with your mom, fiancée, or whomever stands beside you as your "partner in planning". Planning your wedding is a time of joy and fun, and the wedding day should be the same. As one of my favorite quotes pertaining to wedding planning says:
“A Wedding is a party, not a performance. If at the end of the day you are married to the one you love, then everything went perfectly”.
Happy planning & happy reading!
