I've been all over these boards for months and have gone back and forth about starting a PJ. I'm not really a writer and have always preferred to take a test than write a paper. I've seen so many brides get great advice and think a PJ is an awesome way to chronicle your planning and wedding so I'm breaking down and starting one. Now a little about us.... Bride: I'm 25 years old and work as a pediatric emergency department nurse. Groom: He's 25 too, actually he's 8 days older than me, and he works as an Athletic Trainer for a high school. In case you're wondering Athletic Trainers are the people you see running on to the field during a game when someone gets hurt. He'll probably be going back to PT school after the wedding. Wow his intro is so much better than mine...I must live a boring life. Anyway, we met at Penn State our sophomore year and we were both Athletic Training majors. We didn't start dating until our Junior year since he was a taken man our whole Sophmore year. Both our families are HUGE Penn State fans and we all bleed blue and white. Right after college I went to nursing school in Philly for a year and he started grad school at Delaware. Well now we're finally done with school for now and found some time to get married. Me and Matt at a wedding recently Engagement Story: The DF and I visited Disney World together this past February. I've been obsessed with Disney all my life and wanted to take him down there since he hadn't been since he was really young. While we were in Disney I kept seeing bridal parties around the parks and told my DF that I REALLY wanted to get married in Disney. He responded by saying yea we can look into it, it sounds really cool. I immediatetly told him to not respond with any form of yes if he had no intention of really exploring the possibility because I would run with it. Now we weren't engaged at this point, but apparently the ring was ordered and was trying to figure out how to propose. I took a lot of video of Wishes and he decided right then that he was going to use that video to propose after we got home. Now for the actual proposal. Wilimington, DE has a St. Patrick's Day celebration every year on a Saturday in March. It's an awesome day with a parade in the morning and then nuns tap kegs at St. Patricks church. It's all you can drink until the kegs are kicked. Then the day continues with a bar tour through Wilmington. My sister, MOH, lives in Wilmington and her and her husband were in on the engagement. It was a rainy day so we were wearing crap clothes with ridiculous fake eye lashes and boppers They knew it was happening that night once my DF got down after work sometime that evening. All day I heard from both of them, you need to eat because you have to last ALL day. I thought nothing of this since we do this every year and it's always so much fun. The DF arrived around dinner and my sister made up some excuse to run and errand with her husband. I was already well on my way at this point so I was oblivious. The DF called me upstairs and showed me a video he made of the Wishes fireworks with a bunch of pictures of us in Disney, with the end asking me to marry him. Of course I said yes and immediatley called my sister to yell at her for letting me put the ridiculous eye lashes on earlier that day. First Engagement pic, eyelashes and all Wedding Planning Of course I immediately started looking into having a Disney wedding and to be fair I did look into having a wedding at home. Both my extended family and my DF's extended family are pretty big and it's an invite one you invite them all. So it was either going to be a 150+ at home wedding or less then 100 person Disney wedding. Then I found out you could have a brunch reception in Disney, along with mickey waffles, for a lot cheaper per person than anywhere in Philly and I was sold. It took a little more convincing for the DF and my family, but they're now all really excited about Disney. We've booked our ceremony at the Germany Pavilion because the DF's family is all German and then a brunch reception immediately following at LSS on June 19th, 2011. We were assigned Ken Weaver as our wedding planner and planning things since. At the Germany Pavilion, I think it's so cute Enjoying delicious German beer and pretzel! Loved the Living Seas! Especially the gulls outside saying "mine"
