Wedding plans!

124 days until the big day! It's been a while since I've updated my blog and what better way to do it by talking about my marriage plans. I am marrying my best friend, Olivia Dudding. I am glad that I met and found her. We have been engaged for almost two months now and our wedding plans are well under way.

We are grateful for the assistance that her parents have offered us. They have definitely made this process a lot easier for the both of us. Of course it would be dishonest to say that we haven't had our fair share of discussions and honestly a few disagreements over several things. I am glad though that we can get over those things and move on to the next thing on our list. 

In order to make our wedding a memorable and inclusive experience for both of our families we have decided to have a civil marriage and get married in the temple within a year of our civil marriage. That decision was not an easy one but we feel that we have reached that point after prayer and fasting and most importantly with the approval of our Heavenly Father. 

We are getting married civilly in Texas in the good old Rio Grande Valley at Casa Los Ebanos in Los Fresnos, Texas which is a couple of minutes away from South Padre Island. We are getting married in late June so having the Island so close by will definitely be refreshing. 

Some of the things that we still have to plan include food and color schemes and so many little details. It definitely is a lot but at the end of the day it will all be worth it.

I look forward to being able to form a family with Olivia and to put into practice gospel principles in our family. We are currently attending a preparing for eternal marriage class at the Institute every Tuesday and Thursday so that we can prepare for our life together. 

By the way any comments on how to plan a wedding would be greatly appreciated. Please leave them in a comment below!
