Ceremony Locations

6 Jun

Since the river and the big oak tree are not actually on the property, we have to decide a new place for the actual ceremony. Here are some places that previous couples used at Old Wide Awake.

The house you see in the far right on the large photo is someone's in the family that owns the plantation.

This is about the same location as the top photo as well.

Here is the ceremony on the stairs. Right now, the two trees ot the left and right of the stairs are ALOT thicker and fuller, so Matt is concerned that they would ender the view for some people. So this probably won't work.

Here are some more pictures of the other weddings that happened at the Plantation. Maybe we can get some good ideas from them.

Dancing With My Dad

3 Jun

Music is going to be a really important part for Matt and I at the ceremony and reception. One of the hardest decisions for me will be the first dance with dad. SO far I have thought of two songs.

1: Go by Plumb – I love the lyrics in this song, but I feel like there would be no way I wouldn’t cry if we danced to this one. I don’t particularly want to cry in front of 150-200 people. So it’s still up for debate.

 

2. Tupelo Honey by Van Morrison – This song is a little more my dad’s style. I like the beat and the mood it sets. The lyrics are a little self serving though 🙂
