Today marks the one year point before the big day. And boy it feels good to have the venue and date set. This message was actually Mr. GWU's idea. He drafted the historically cheeky message and I crafted the jpeg. Here is the message we communicated to some of our closest Family & Friends:
"Dearest family and friends,
July 17th is notable for a few reasons. In 1945, President Truman met with Josef Stalin and Winston Churchill at Potsdam for the final Allied summit of World War II. In 1955, Disneyland opened in Anaheim, California.
Since 1955, nothing significant has happened on July 17th....until now!
One year from now, on July 17th, 2010, Sarah Magallanes and James Bayot are getting married in Washington, DC!
Attached is an informal save-the-date card. The location for our church ceremony is still to be determined, but we are holding our wedding reception at the historic Hotel Monaco in Washington DC. Click here to look at the Hotel Monaco: http://www.monaco-dc.com/
We are so excited to share this news with you and we hope that you will be able to celebrate with us on this very special day.
Sarah & James"
