. . . and we're gonna get maaaaarried . . . . That's me, singing. I’m sure you’ve heard the news by now. Sage and I are getting married!!!! I am over the moon. My new name will be Sophie Colgan DuBois. I’m so excited, I can hardly wait. I can’t believe this is really happening. I’m gonna be Sadie, Sadie, Married Lady!
Of course, Sage and I have been living together for a while, that’s no surprise to anyone, and I guess everyone expects that we’ll be getting married soon. And they’re right! We are. Next spring in May, 2015. It seems like a long way off because we’re in the middle of autumn but I know the big day will come soon and I want to have everything organized, down to the last little detail.
My best friend, Lucky Jamieson, is sewing my wedding gown. It’s a good thing too because if she left it up to me, I’d probably wear some old dress I already own. I’m a ski instructor at the Snowflake Resort and all my clothes are ski gear, jeans and T-shirts. I don’t own much else, but Lucky insisted that she wants me to look beautiful and elegant on the BIG DAY.
She knows me pretty well. She knows I couldn’t stand to wear anything too frou-frou. It has to be simple. So Lucky’s told me she creating a simple, elegant flowing ivory sheath with a headdress of pearls and a veil.
Sage and I plan to hold the ceremony in Lucky’s grandfather’s lovely garden with a justice of the peace and a very small group of only the people who are closest to us. I just hope Pastor Wilson isn’t upset that we’re not going to have him officiate at the Congregational Church. I want to keep everything small and I want my wedding day to be peaceful and full of romance. Sage agrees. He plans to do all the work for a buffet and Lucky says she’s hiring a harpist to create just the right atmosphere.
I’m really determined that our wedding day doesn’t get any more complicated or demanding. And I really hope everybody in Snowflake doesn’t expect to be invited.
Our future wedding is featured on the cover!
I can’t wait! But I worry a lot because lots of people have told me about their wedding disasters. Have you ever experienced anything like that???
Please keep your fingers crossed for me because I don’t want anything to go wrong next May!
