OK, maybe not but….
It is a wonderful time for us. Our daughter Annie is marrying a great guy and we couldn’t be more excited about it! Zach has become one of us! Not only has he joined up with a mostly female family but has done it with grace.
We are headed down to Austin Texas to create some great memories as a family. The wedding will be a simple ceremony by a Justice of the Peace but festivities will be going on all week with lots of family time to explore and spend time together. Zach’s family lives in Austin and we are excited to share this time with them.
As a mom, I have always fantasized what this time would be like when one of my three daughters married. I have been in the wedding business for a long time and consider myself an expert at pulling off the perfect day. When it came to planning Annie’s wedding, I was put to task to plan a whole different experience. At first, I was taken back by the details. They were not what I had envisioned and to be honest I was absolutely thrilled. So many weddings these days are so cookie cutter and boring. We are going to have an unconventional wedding with a lot of fun built in! Yes, we are going to be doing a lot of the cooking and prepping but that part comes natural for this family.
This will be a memorable week for all of us and we have Annie and Zach to thank for directing us in a direction that best suits them and their lifestyle. Upon our return to St. Louis, we will prepare for weekend guests – back to work as Innkeepers!
Cheers to Annie and Zach!
