Newest on the Block

I'm the newest DC Nearlywed here amongst the bunch - Miss Gallery Place. Mr. GP and I live near Eastern Market, we both hail from New England and the only thing stopping me from gettin' hitched on the shores of Lake Champlain (my home turf) is the fact that we were pretty adamant about getting married in "our" church - St. Peters on Capitol Hill.

We had settled on Clyde's in Gallery Place for the reception but as of late, I have become...almost ambivalent about having the reception there. Now the Piedmont room is beautiful. Really it is. It's great if you're of the cigar smoking, whiskey drinking, horse betting crowd from the South. I kid. I kid. You see, recently I changed our colors because I had a "TA DA" moment (as I like to call them) while watching my gal pal try on dresses - I saw two dresses next to each other at David's Bridal that were dark navy blue and clover green. They screamed that they were "my" colors. It was the perfect "ta da" moment, and since I couldn't quite decide on the shades of pink and green that would be perfect for an early September wedding, it was brilliant. I had another one of those this weekend.

Mr. GP and I were celebrating our two year anniversary a couple weeks early in Old Town, I had won a free hotel stay at the Embassy Suites so we decided to cash it in as we were officially one year out from the big day. As we rounded the corner from the Torpedo Factory after lunch, I noticed the Chart House. It was...another TA DA moment. Unfortunately, this kind of throws everything off, we have a deposit down, and while I haven't spoken to them yet, I'm hopeful about the Chart House if only because it absolutely reminds me of home, and not just MY home, but also the Connecticut shore which Mr. GP considers a part of his home (he's a bit further north from the shore though). We'll see though, since we're on such a tight budget, it's going to depend on where we get the better price - honestly? I'd be happy with either.

I digress though, we're getting married in September of 2009 - either in Gallery Place or Old Town. About us? Aside from the above that is, I'm 25, I work for a nonproft in Arlington, I'm training for my second marathon that I'll be running in Hartford in October, and then marathon number 3 which will be Burlington in May 09. Mr. GP is a political consultant, 26, and is...kind of a political junkie. We both enjoy watching too much MSNBC, and spoiling our 1 1/2 year old beagle mix.

How'd we meet you ask? We met shortly after I moved down to the area in 2006. It's a long contrived story so I'll spare you all the gory, dramatic details. Essentially we were introduced by someone I'll just call a mutual friend. A mutual friend I met at a party, had been hanging out with since I had no friends, that had just happened to once upon a time date Mr. GP. He pursued me, I fell for him and the rest is history. Needless to say, mutual friend is no long really...a friend. Whoops? It all kind of worked out and to use a line that a kid once used on me in college when he found out I wasn't romantically interested in him "I have too many friends" (Is that really possible though...I suppose when you're working on the Guest Lists it is...).

Anyhow, I'm looking forward to planning my weddin' and even more so now that I can share it with you all!

one good benefit of Old Town is there there are a number of hotels there that are reasonable in cost since it sounds like you will have a lot of out of towners. And Old Town definitely has the "old" New England Americana feel to it.
but...maybe I am biased since I am an Alexandrian!
