P&J's Escape Wedding PJ! Feb 15, 2011(SBP, UK Lower) A year gone by...
I'm late to the game in getting this PJ started. I've tried a few times and when inputting pictures it never worked, so I've given up twice already. But I've gained SO much from reading everyone's PJ's and TR's and wanted to take part! So bear with me with the pictures and my overuse of exclamation marks; you've been forewarned!
The basics: I'm Jennine, and he's Philip.
We met in high school and came to be pretty good friends in the halls and over the good ole' ICQ (remember the days?? He even made an ICQ reference in my yearbook...LOL).
He was a terrific friend, and I've always said that boys and girls can't be just friends! On our first date, we went skating, and it all progressed from there. He makes me feel like a princess - on our first anniversary he rented out an entire skating rink just for us - a homage to our first date!
We've been together for seven and a half years . I know, it sounds like he waited forever to propose, but we were only 18 when we started dating - there was school and jobs to get on the go! Mind you, I'm still working on the job part - I'm a French Substitute teacher and waiting for this year's job posting to come out in the hopes that I can get something this year.
Oddly enough, Disney wasn't my first choice. I was all set to head to Vegas and get 'er done! Philip really wanted his family there though, and that didn't fit my Vegas idea. We go to Disney every two years with his family, so when I stumbled upon DFTW, I KNEW it was us. I tell everyone that the fairy tale wedding is my "compromise." Heh!
We're getting married on February 15, 2011 at Sea Breeze Point, with a lunch reception at The Attic. I'm hoping for a Dessert Party, and Philip is waiting for money to grow on trees before he agrees to it. We have 22 on our guest list right now, and many family members telling us what they really think about us leaving them off of our list.
I've really enjoyed reading everyone's PJ's and TR's, like I said before, so a big thank you to everyone! It really helped when I couldn't do anything but wait...and wait...and wait. I'm SURE you'll see inspiration from all of you in my posts
(and if anyone can help with the pictures...I'd love to show my dress! And us! I've put my pics on photobucket and used the little mountain icon, and they always come up with a little box and a broken icon in them. Grrr. I'd ask DF, since he's a programmer and actually KNOWS stuff, but I don't want him coming back to this page!)
