J&A Chronicles: K and Starsky's Wedding

I officially met K back in October 2007.  Her and her long time boyfriend J (yes, I know a LOT of men with the first initial J so we'll call him Starsky - as my husband does) were getting married June 2008.  Starsky asked J (my J, stay with me) to be one of his groomsmen. 
Over the next approximately 8 months, we did what we could to help K and Starsky with whatever we could; moving in to their first townhouse together, picking up furniture, and any miscellaneous wedding planning.  
Finally, it was their wedding day! I was allowed to hang out with the groomsmen before the wedding and ride with them over to the church.  This is the first wedding I had ever cried during; it was beautiful and filled with emotion.

Now, 2+ years later, their marriage is still going strong and at our wedding in March 2010, Starsky was one of our groomsmen.

You can visit K and Starsky at their respective blogs: Katie's Cucina and Sew Woodsy.  She cooks ALL. THE. TIME! and seems to post a new recipe every day. =)

Up to this point in our relationship, J and I had not talked about wedding plans.  The day of the rehearsal/dinner, J started asking me questions: what do you think we'd register for? do you want to get married outside? how many people would we want in the wedding party? 
Don't get me wrong, I was all too excited at the prospect of getting married but on the other hand, I didn't want to jump the gun.  So we casually discussed it here and there after that but nothing too serious and we weren't planning the wedding.
At some point after K and Starsky's wedding, I was told by SEVERAL people that it was likely that I would be waiting several years before J would even consider marriage.  Boy, were they so wrong! (thank goodness lol)

It's so great to be able to share your wedding day with great friends and have them be a part of your special day in return. Looks like you are really blessed to have them in your life!

Awe love the post ;) I remember how "starsky" and I would talk about wedding stuff for years... from the ring to location, etc! I'm glad we could be apart of each other's wedding days!
