Tip Tuesday!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
While you definitely aren’t required to start booking a caterer or DJ before you’re ready, it never hurts to start thinking about your wedding theme. The aesthetic and style of your wedding day includes a general ambience—think romantic, classic or bohemian—as well as your color scheme. Do you and your partner have favorite colors? Do you know what season you want to get married in? Sometimes the time of year can help decorate your theme. For example, pastels are perfect in spring, bright colors in summer, and muted tones in fall.

It was 1968.
Will Smith and Celine Dion were born that year, the ATM was introduced as were airbags in cars. The first Big Mac went on sale, Intel was formed, the average income was $7,850 and gas was 24 cents a gallon. The Beatles "Hey Jude" was the number one song👍
I was soon to be 3 years old and little did I know that on Friday October 11th ,1968 the most important event of that year and my future life occurred...possibly while I was potty training.😁
My amazing wife entered the world that day (notice that it was a Friday, it explains a lot!) and I unknowingly waited for the stars to align and bring us together.
In the not too distant future (13 more years) I asked her out on a lunch date to Roy Rogers (don't judge). And now, here we are 40 years later celebrating 30 years of marriage.
I've been lucky in life in so many ways but my proudest accomplishment will ALWAYS be us and the life we've created together.
I love you, our growing family and that you didn't throw shade at me for our first date being at the Deptford Mall Roy Rogers 😘
Happy Anniversary!!
P.S.- That dress you wore today is 🔥🔥
