A few people I forgot to mention……

Posted on Sep 19, 2008 under My Wedding Party | Comments are off

Unfortunately my dad and I forgot to get a few names and pictures on this site of people who are helping out at the wedding! So I would like to name them now.

My 2 uncles, LeRoy and Ken are going to be pulling the runner down the aisle.

My aunt Judy and my brother’s girlfriend Amanda are going to be passing out programs and bubbles to the guests.

My 2 grandpa’s Peter and Charles will be walking down the aisle to their seats, compliments of their escort Jennifer!

Sorry there are no pictures, but I’m sure we’ll have some of them from the wedding after it’s all over!!!

Pre-Wedding

So, on Wednesday @ 4 Randy and Amanda made it here from Colorado. My parent’s and I finished getting all of our wedding stuff together. Yesterday (Thursday) I went to Bensenville and my mom and I had our nail appointments! I got a french manicure w/ frosted polish and on my toes I got alternating red, green and yellow for our wedding colors! Then my parents and me drove to our hotel in Geneva so I could check in. Dad, Randy and me went in the hot tub while my mom watched. At 6 my parents, Jennifer, Darrell and me went to the Gaslite Manor to set up the reception hall, but boy did they mess everything up and we had to fix it all. At 7 we had the rehearsal at the Gaslite Chapel. It went so fast because I was being drug from one end of the hall to the other to get everything done! It was a lot of fun though! After that we had the rehearsal dinner @ the Countryhouse Restaurant which is right next door to our hotel. Of course to keep w/ the theme of the evening they also had screwed everything up! In the end though it turned into a fun evening, and everyone seemed to like the gifts we had gotten them, plus the food was good. Darrell even got me the cutest gift and I feel like a horrible person because I didn’t get him anything! I tried to go to bed, but thoughts kept racing through my mind, plus I kept be awakened by phone calls. Then it turned out that my mom left something here in the room that she needed this morning for her hair appointment @ 9, so my dad had to drive all the way back and woke me up again at 1230!!! I didn’t sleep very long, I woke up at 645 and decided to work out on the treadmill, then I went in the hot tub, and then I took my bath. At 830 I had breakfast in the hotel w/ my grandpa, 2 aunts and uncle from Iowa, plus my brother and his girlfriend Amanda. Now I’m sitting in my room writing to all of you (Yes obviously I brought my laptop and they have internet here!). My parents should be here at noon, and I have my hair and make-up appointment at 1pm in Batavia at Zano’s. The photographer, girls, and florist will be here at 3 for photos, and then the guys will be doing photos at the Gaslite at 5. The ceremony begins promptly at 6:30 w/ the reception to follow! I can’t wait but at the same time I can, because it will be over before I know it! Hope to see everyone there tonight!!!
