It's a question that will determine a large portion of your timeline for your wedding day: will you and your partner see each other before the ceremony?
In life I’m a planner and a list maker. I don’t do any job, take any trip or throw a dinner party without sitting down and working through the details in list after list (flight and hotel information, menus, timeline for cooking, who has what allergies, etc. etc.). I’ve found that even when (especially when!!) I want something to feel laid back and fun I need to consider these plans beforehand because when you go into anything well prepared and well thought out it’s so much easier to relax and enjoy the experience. Your wedding day is exactly the same. If you set up a schedule that accurately allows time needed for each task and builds in some cushion here and there you are way more likely to have a day that is stress free and fun, even if things run behind a bit or something unexpected comes up.
As soon as I met Amy and Ted I felt a connection. They met, as my husband and I did, through their theatre department in college. They moved first to San Francisco and then to New York City together, building their adult lives hand-in-hand. When they decided to get married they didn’t want to have to follow all of the traditional tropes and traditions that society seems to dictate. Amy and Ted wanted a chill and relaxing event with their families and friends, which is exactly what they had.
