Big wedding update

Big news, everybody. Wedding plans are coming along just about perfectly. I don’t know what every goes on about with the stress of wedding planning. Sarah and I have been at it for a couple of weeks, and we’re absolutely loving it. It’s amazing how we can be so in tune with each other on everything. Just about every decision we’re in sync about without saying a word, and the places we disagree, we find a compromise just about immediately.

I’ve already written before about the color choices (we’re going with this beautiful sunny yellow and a sky blue, which I think are going to just be wonderful in the Chicago summer. We’ve got place settings and all those things. Now, we’re starting to get to the big things.

I’m glad we worked through those small issues first so we would have our minds in the right place to make the big choices. So, all that preamble aside, the first big choice is: we’re getting a yacht.

No, we’re not getting a yacht like buying a yacht. Who thought we had that kind of cash? But we’re doing the wedding on a yacht. Isn’t that fun? We’re renting the yacht for the day and sailing around the lake. It’s going to be perfect.

You all know that Sarah and I are very driven in our careers. We want to be the sort of people who don’t have to rent a yacht. We want to be the sort who already have one at the dock, ready to go.

We’re not there yet. We’ve still got to pay our dues, and we’re okay with that. We’re okay with the long hours and pushing each other. But is there a better way of stating who we are and where we want to go than by getting married and sealing our love forever on a yacht in our favorite place in the world, on Lake Michigan?

For those of you who forgot, Sarah and I actually met at the Indiana Dunes at a party, so in a way, the lake is what brought us together in the first place.

I’m just so excited about this decision, guys, you have no idea. The cost is astronomical, but it’s definitely worth it, and Dad and (so to be) Mom-in-Law are stepping up big on this because they know how important it is for us.

So, everyone coming to the wedding next year, bring your swimming gear along and your best yacht outfits. It’s going to be quite a party.

Next post: updates on where we are with the musical ideas. What do you all think? DJ or live band? And what kind of music do you all want to get down to after the ceremony’s done? Remember, we’ll be cruising across the lake all night!
