Kristin & Skip's Wedding Planning Journal December 21, 2009 Hi everyone! I have been lurking and posting for a while now and am so excited to finally be starting my PJ!! I have quite a while to go before my wedding (Dec 09) but honestly I feel like I need that much time because I am sort of a perfectionist, especially about my wedding. About us: I'm Kristin and am from Indiana but moved to South Carolina when I was in high school. I met my DF when we were both sixteen. We went to separate high schools but met while working at a movie theater, so I guess you would still call us HS sweethearts! We began dating in August 2004 and have been together ever since. I currently work at a travel agency and am also a student at Clemson University, but will be done with my degree before the wedding. My DF, Skip, is also a student at Clemson. He is in broadcasting/journalism and currently interning at CNN! We believe that this is where he will be working when he graduates next semester, so we are thinking Atlanta, GA is where we will be residing after the wedding. But this also means that we will have to go about a year living in different states (while I finish school, he starts a job). AH! Talk about stress. Us then (prom pic): Us now: I first began "planning" our wedding in 2006, even though I knew it would be a while before we could set the date. We always knew we would be honeymooning in WDW, but we were planning a wedding at home in SC. However, for two years, none of the plans felt "right." I was spending a lot of time on these boards and it finally hit us that a Disney Wedding would be PERFECT for us. We both love WDW and the thought of having an intimate wedding with just our closest family and friends. Plus DF saw a picture of Sea Breeze Point and was in love. Luckily our parents are all for it. My parents are amazingly ALMOST more obsessed with WDW than I am and we have lost count of how many times we used to go. My whole life they had always hinted about giving me a Disney Wedding and since we moved to SC we have not been very much so I guess the thought kind of left my mind until I found this board by searching for info on WDW honeymoons! My family loves all things Disney and WDW is our favorite place on earth so this wedding is pretty exciting for everyone. So here we are and everything feels "perfect" now, so YAY! We are having a full blown escape wedding at SBP and will be filling our 18 guest limit. We have many ideas and things that we know we want to do, I just really need to start organizing them! I also want a lot of advice and feedback, and I know that this is the perfect place to get it! And by the way, here is my engagement ring and us being silly modeling it. Thanks so much for reading! More to come soon!
