In less than a month now I’ll be getting married – it almost seems surreal. I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time, mostly since I proposed to Kirstin about a year ago, but it’s so close I can hardly believe it. I’ve lived in pensacola, Florida for the past 5+ years and Kirstin has lived Rome, Georgia for a little over 4 years now. We had a long distance relationship for the entirety of our 2 years of dating, but in the past few weeks I’ve actually taken the plunge and moved up to Georgia. We figured it was probably a good idea to at least live in the same state if we were going to be getting married.
It all actually worked out quite well. The company I work for, AppRiver, recently opened an office in Midtown Atlanta. The office is about 1.5 hours from where Kirstin works in Rome, so we decided to live somewhere in the middle and then we each commute to our workplaces. The drives are fairly long, but we think it’s worth it because we finally get to see each other on a regular basis and we both get to keep the jobs we love.
A Wedding Website!
Soon after we were engaged, the wedding planning began. One task on the list was to get a wedding website. I thought “I got this!” since I do something similar for a living, so I made one. I might have gone a bit overboard with the site, but it covers 100% of our needs, we love it, and we’ve gotten nothing but compliments about it. I’ve made it in a fairly modular way, so I hope that others might be able to make use of it as well. I’ve decided to put all the code on GitHub because… well why not.
