74 days

It was a long and busy Father's Day weekend! We finally had our engagement photo session at UCLA on Saturday and luckily it turned out to be a beautiful day with glowing sunshine and blue skies-- in fact, in was much better than the weather on the day we had originally scheduled for the photo shoot. After another full day with church and family on Sunday, I was absolutely exhausted.

On top of it all, I am having growing frustrations and trouble with our rental vendor. I really don't want to sound like a spoiled, high maintenance bride who just complains about every little superficial wedding frustration, but I just feel that with this particular vendor, I've had to stretch myself way beyond what is acceptable for a customer to accommodate them. 

I was actually in the middle of writing out an angry post about the latest childishly rude email I received from them when another new email popped into my inbox-- from a leader at church. Reading the email, though it was simple and short, I was reminded of how much my family of God cared for me and Will and our marriage. Though very special, our wedding day will only last one day while our marriage will be a lifetime. I shouldn't let the little frustrations or hiccups in the planning (which actually seem terribly large in the moment) distress me because at the end of it all, Will and I will be married, so it will be the most perfect day anyways. There will always be ill-mannered people, miscommunication, and unforseen challenges... but I know it is more worth-while to focus on my patient fiance and preparing my heart for a God-centered marriage.

Of course this doesn't mean I won't express my opinion and experiences with this vendor to other potential customers. There will definitely be a review on the way to wedding wire at the very least-- but after the wedding (because I'm a pansy). I'm nervous about having any more trouble with this company before the wedding and giving them the benefit of the doubt (yet again), these next few months will also give them time to redeem themselves.
