I'm really getting married!

We booked a church! Our church. The church.

Fiance and I will exchange vows at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Georgetown. I'm excited about this for many reasons, most of which are personal and religious in nature. However, there's also a part of Holy Trinity I love because it's a beautiful place of worship.

Since our guest list is under 75 people, we have the option of using the chapel, which is an extremely traditional, beautiful building that sits atop a tall hill on N Street and 36th. (Look at me talking like a true DC resident!)

Inside, the main worship area is as modern as they come. It's a simple area and can be set up with the altar literally in the middle of the room and all the chairs facing toward it, versus the front of the room. I don't know yet if this is how we'll do it, but it's a fresh idea, nonetheless.

The main church is also beautiful and it's the place I really see myself marrying Mr. Shirlington.

I can't believe it. At this point, everything else is just a detail because when it comes down to it, this is the only part of my planning that really matters. As long as we can walk down that aisle, I can breathe a happy sigh of relief.

oh it's beautiful! even though it's very modern I actually really like the chapel...seems like it would be easy to decorate and i love the idea of having all your guests surrounding you. that's so unique and memorable.

I remember walking by this church all the time when I lived in Georgetown and always wondering what it looked like inside. I never would have guessed that it looked like that - far from the traditional look that I expected it to have but still very pretty. :) Congrats on this next step in your planning. I was very excited when we booked our church too since (to me) the ceremony is the most important of the whole wedding.
