December Weddings and Anniversaries

You guys! It’s the last Weddings & Anniversaries of the year! Well, I mean, sort of… we’ll update you on January weddings before we leave for the holidays, but this is the last batch of APW-ers getting hitched in 2011. Fun Fact: both David’s and my parents got married in December (mine on the same day as Mary & Mark at the end of the post) so around here we think that December weddings are the best things in the world. So I’m thrilled to bring you Alyssa’s roundup of wedding and anniversaries. (And please make sure and see the bottom of the post for a message about 2012 Weddings and Anniversaries.)

Wish all our soon to be wed couples joy, and grin over the anniversaries in the snow!

    • Congrats, 12/11/10 twin! Can you believe its almost been a year?

      The best thing about a December wedding is that, after that year, managing the stress of the holidays seem like the biggest, most giant piece of cake. “Oh, you mean I don’t have to think about gifts and holiday cards while SIMULTANEOUSLY creating a seating chart for X number of people?? Psh. I got this.”

    • I forgot to submit mine too! how did I miss this? We are just squeaking in with 12/30/11 :-)

    • Emily
