Countdown to my daughter Tara’s wedding. Part 1

Tara and Kelly (TnK) have been talking about getting married and having babies about as long as they have been together which is 5 ½. Last January they moved in to the home they bought and are loving it.

Around the beginning of October 2007 they finally picked a wedding date. Or actually their friend did by asking them what their favorite numbers between 1 and 30 were. They agreed to a wedding date of Friday June 13th. With the wedding planned to be in Las Vegas at the Flamingo Hotel. TnK thought Friday the 13th would be good day for a Vegas wedding. Tara was under quite a bit of stress at work as she was responsible for her entire departments cutover to a new computer system. She delayed making any plans until the first part of December once the cutover had been completed. Tara called the Flamingo, made reservations and made a deposit for the ceremony.

On December 28th Tara had a cardiac arrest and spent 5 days in the university hospital’s cardiac ICU (an excellent hospital). A couple of months later Tara was so stressed by returning to work and planning a wedding that she canceled the Vegas plans. She lost her deposit but got back her piece of mind. Now the plan was changed to have the wedding in my sister’s and mother’s backyard in St. Helens, OR. Around that same time TnK decided to move the wedding to August 2nd to give her more time to plan. Also the chances of the weather for an outdoor wedding would be better in August than June.
