Guys. Holy moly. 2 weeks until wedding weekend. Crazy!!!!!!!!! I am going for my last dress fitting tomorrow. Hopefully nothing crazy happens between then and 4.29.... Everyone has been asking if I am getting nervous, but strangely, I'm not. I can't wait to marry Matt and my parents have been THE BIGGEST help ever in regards to the wedding, and because of that, I think that we are not feeling overly stressed (at least I am not...Mom may disagree). There are a few things to take care of between now and the big day, but pretty much we are on autopilot. You kind of just say a little prayer that all the professionals that you hire show up that day and do exactly what you discussed... I'm getting so excited. I love our menus for both the rehearsal dinner AND the reception. It's a black tie wedding, but we are having pierogies by Matt's family's business "Silly Lilly's Pierogies" and then we are having beer on tap by our friends from Tired Hands Brewing....and of course Karamoor Wines! I hope that everything turns out even better than it looks in my head. I can't wait to show you all pictures!
Next Friday we are having our last tour of April - we probably will not have another tour until mid-May (after I return from our honeymoon). It seems like next Friday is a pretty popular date because we are almost sold out. I bet that means that we are going to have a really fun group. I think there are 4 tickets left, so if you are interested, head to the store and buy some tickets!
On Thursday of next week, we are going to have a filming group out from WHYY. How neat is that? I guess I might want to apply some makeup on Thursday in case I end up on TV... Wouldn't that be awesome?! I could tell Matt that he is married to a TV star! #jk. They are coming out on Thursday because we have started bottling...finally. Kevin is actually bottling our 2016 Sauvignon Blanc today! He was supposed to start last week but some of our materials got hung up in New Jersey for some reason...I mean, New Jersey is not that far. Why did it take those shipping companies a week to get it here? My aunt commutes from New Jersey everyday...she probably could have gotten us our materials in like 1/8th of the time it took them. Anyway, the point is that next week Kevin will be bottling our reds. Probably our Meritage is the wine that will end up being filmed next Thursday...which is fitting because Meritage is our flagship wine!
Do you have fun plans this weekend? I think it might rain tomorrow, but Sunday is supposed to be great weather. Maybe I will be able to work on my tan! I know that I already told you that I have my last dress fitting in NYC tomorrow, but TONIGHT (that's right, I have plans on a Friday that do not involve Netflix and bed by 9:45PM) my very best pal from college is coming over with her husband and her 2 dogs for a date night! Can't wait. Then Sunday is Easter! It is both Easter AND Orthodox Easter. Typically for Greek Easter (Orthodox Easter) my grandparents have a big celebration...but this year since all the family is coming in two weeks later for the wedding, my grandparents are going to Florida! Those lucky rascals. Matt and I are going to have a quiet early dinner with my parents...this way Dad and I can practice our dance for the wedding. So, while it will just be dinner for Dad and me, it will be dinner AND a show for Mom and Matt. I hope that you have plenty of Karamoor wine to accompany your ham or lamb. Happy Easter and Happy Passover!!!!!!! Until next time...
