January, February, and March Weddings & Anniversaries


A few weeks ago, Columns Editor Alyssa put out a call for Team Practical Weddings and anniversaries, so we could all get to know each other a little better, and cheer on those about to be wed. I wasn’t sure about Alyssa’s project, because I just couldn’t visualize it, but she’s Alyssa, and she knows APW like the back of her hand, so I let her at it. And today, I got it. And I think you will too. It’s amazing to see the faces of the ladies who hang out here, living their lives.

Since we got a bit of a late start, we have January, February AND March weddings all in one giant post, just bursting with love!  (And remember, this is an ongoing project, so if you’d like to be included, see the bottom of the post for details.)

 Our upcoming weddings this month:

Molly and Cameron, March 12th, 2011

Brodie and Emily, March 26th, 2011

Wish them strength through the final weeks, and huge-ness on the day itself. Squeeee you guys!

And our anniversaries:

Happy anniversaries to all of you, and thanks for reminding us what all of this is about.

And um, is it just me, or will we be needing some wedding grad posts from some of these ladies, cough, cough, cough?

    You know what’s so awesome about this? A lot of us are all kinds of out there when it comes to wedding planning (and let’s face it, if we didn’t put it out there, there might be a danger of imploding), and we’ve found these awesome people and we follow each other and support each other and commiserate with each other’s setbacks and milestones . . . but then some of us kind of fall off the radar. It’s awesome to be able to say, “Oh! That’s so and so! YAY!”

    So . . .

    That’s so and so! YAY! Great new feature.

    Marbella, I just have to ask – is that the red caboose in Vienna??

    Congratulations to everyone!! To those of you for whom the wait is almost over, I am so excited for you, and can’t wait to be there myself :)

      Hi Jenn, It’s in Old Town Herndon – an old W&OD rail car off the trail.

      I agree! :)

    You know that wall in the house, maybe it’s along a stairway or a hall, but it’s just covered in all the family photos and vacations and birthdays and graduations and stuff and you walk down it and it’s a walk through your family? That’s what this post is.

      • Marchelle

    Can I just say that every single picture looks like a couple that I would love to be friends with in real life?

  • http://as-food-to-life.blogspot.com meredythbyrd

    I’m soooo happy to see a super pregnant Drea after her very affecting post about struggling with infertility! It stuck with me and makes me a little teary-eyed to be able to catch up with them now and see how things are going. Thanks for allowing me to get so excited for a stranger! I like this feature.

    Best wishes to Molly and Cameron, and Brodie and Emil! Hope your wedding days are full of love and laughter.

    And congrats to all the anniversary-ers! Have beautiful, happy days!

  • Denzi

    Okay, yes, best thing ever. Team Practical is so much bigger and awesomer than I had ever imagined. (I don’t know why seeing all the smiling faces makes it so, but it does.)

    Congratulations to everyone! And advance congratulations to our lovely March ladies! :D
