Parts of the wedding were very much us. We selected the music. I let my dad wear jeans and a leather vest to give me away because he was a biker. Our friends were in the wedding party and a friend sang at the wedding. The vows, the borrowed dress, the borrowed bouquet, the communion -- while lovely and very fitting for some folks, just weren't us. Of course, we weren't the interesting people we are now.
Andrew and I have known each other slightly longer than we've been working together creatively (by maybe a few minutes), and we were married six months after we met. Over the past two decades we've become more interesting people, and it's awesome that we've done it together. We decided two years ago that we wanted to have a new ceremony on our twentieth anniversary, but this time it was going to be planned and executed by the two of us. Because we're entertainers the rewedding is going to be a show event.
Since New Year's we've been working diligently on the rewedding: picking colors, hunting for awesome favors, selecting our wedding party, working out the structure of the show, looking for new wedding bands, thinking about music playlists, figuring out wardrobe. I understand why people schedule some time between the proposal and their first ceremony for all the odds & ends of throwing a wedding. The players in this event won't all be the same as the original wedding, but this is a Snapper event in Los Angeles so the wedding participants are all performing.
|Special thanks to Jessie & Charlene for making this happen!|
I'll share bits and pieces of the planning of the rewedding since I have so many friends and family who won't be able to attend. Our event is August 12th, two days before our actual anniversary. Watch this space for the official announcement.
