GUEST BLOG: The Mattchelor Party

Hi! Hope all is well out there in the interwebs. I’m going to attempt to write up the recap from Matt’s bachelor party weekend aka MATTCHELOR PARTY!!! So please forgive me if I’m not goods at this words-on-paper-talking thing. Like the Game of Thrones, this is my POV so you have to ask others for their version of the story.

On April 17th, 2007 Amanda and I had our first date. More than eight years later we still aren't married. Thankfully, plans have been set in motion to remedy that.

Tastings Galore

Matt and I were really excited to visit New Orleans for so many reasons: family, Christmas, and taking care of wedding tasks that are hard to from Austin. Setting up tastings with bakeries and our caterer was the first thing on our list.

The Proposal

This is the story about how it happened. The amazing, not-as-romantic-as-I-pictured-it-in-my-head moment when I finally found the courage to ask her.

Wedding Party Invites

After the excitement of getting engaged settled in a little bit, we started to think logically about the wedding. One of the first things we talked about was our bridal party. We both had so many people in our lives that we loved and wanted to be next to us on our special day. Once we decided on a list, we wanted to ask them in a way that made them feel special and loved.

The Blessing

Last year (2013), Amanda and I spent Thanksgiving in New Orleans. At that time, I knew 2014 was the year I wanted to propose. Amanda and I were better than ever, and our professional and personal lives were in sync. It was time to ask her parents if it was OK for me to marry their daughter.
