In one week, we’re leaving for Vegas, and our wedding. I am so excited and nervous. I didn’t sleep very well last night because I kept just thinking about all sorts of details, not in a bad way at all, just really excited. Today, I decided to look up YouTube videos of weddings at our venue, and they’re amazing. It’s perfect. Everything is just so nice. We really made the right decision by switching our ceremony to there.
We finally chose our music. We’ll begin with 2001 A Space Odyssey, then walk together down the aisle to the Wedding March, played by Queen (I think it’s actually from a movie soundtrack, but I can’t remember which). Then we’ll walk out to Groovy Situation. It’s perfect! I can’t wait!
We chose Andrew’s tie, which was the last detail of clothing. It’s a galaxy print, in colors that compliment my dress.
We also decided to have the minister do a reading of an excerpt from Carl Sagan. Andrew said it combines science and spirituality, which is important when a spiritual person such as himself marries an Atheist engineer, especially when both share a love of astronomy and space.
I am so excited. I have no idea how I’m supposed to design bridges for four more days before taking off on vacation! I love my job, but right now, the struggle is real. I can’t believe how well everything is coming together.
I also have to say, I was nowhere near this excited before my first wedding. I was just kind of stressed and on edge. This is a night and day difference, and I’m taking that as a good sign.
