February 24th, 2008:

and a wedding too!

Not ones to do anything halfway, Adam and I decided to add a wedding to our already full plate of baby-growing and usual crazy lives. Though we only announced the wedding when we announced the pregnancy (within the last two weeks), we’ve actually been planning it since January, and have most of the major details already finalized.

The big event (well, the first big event of this year for us, anyway) is April 5, at the Roosevelt Ballroom in Yonkers. We have been to two B’nai Mitzvah in this space and loved the beautiful historic building, the caterer (who leases the space permanently), and, importantly, that downtown Yonkers would represent in our wedding. It’s about eight blocks from the house and feels like it’s in the neighborhood (even though there’s a major crack park and very scary housing project in between our house and the ballroom and we’d never walk those eight blocks in a million years).

We expect to have about 100 people at the wedding, with nearly all of my close family flying in from Chicago, Florida and California (and a few other locations) and Adam’s coming from Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Florida (and a few other locations). We are also lucky to be gathering nearly all of our dearest friends with us that day.

It’s going to be quite a party! which is exactly what we wanted – a celebration of our relationship with our family and friends. I can’t wait! But there’s still enough to be done that I’m getting a bit nervous; March will be a very busy month.
