Favorite Pictures Part I - Ceremony

I'm not sure if any one even still looks at this blog anymore - it's been so long since I posted and I needed a LONG break from everything wedding related. Anyway, our online gallery is going to expire soon, so we're trying to decide on our favorite pictures to get to hang in the house. Here are some from disc 1 (of 2 discs) that are in the running:

It is so difficult to choose which ones we like best.  We are trying to choose 2 of these, because we'll probably choose another 1-2 from the reception photos on disc 2.  If anyone still does read this- any thoughts on which ones we should pick?  Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Mrs. Cassity (Officially!)

I received my new social security card in the mail yesterday, so I am officially Mrs.Cassity.  I've been using the MissNowMrs website (that I won a gift card for) and it's pretty helpful in terms of knowing who to inform about the name change.  It's got lots of templates that are pretty useful too.  There is such a long list of places to change your name!  I've sent lots of letters out already, but I wasn't able to change my drivers license until I got my new SS card- so that's next!  Here's my running list:
  • Social Security Card
  • Driver's License
  • Employer Payroll
  • Bank Accounts
  • Health Insurance
  • Auto Insurance
  • Voter Registration
  • Passport
  • Lease
  • ASHA Membership
  • MD SLP Licensing Board
  • Doctor's Offices
  • Student Loans
I also have started the process of reviewing vendors. I'll post more about that later. And- if you have pictures from the wedding, PLEASE post them on our snapfish site, we're so anxious to see them!!! (It will be a while before we get our professional photos.)

Snapfish Update

If you would like to order any pictures from snapfish (or view/upload your own), the new and easiest way I've discovered to do this is by joining our wedding day album "group".  The group password is "august".  If you do it the old way you can view and add pictures, but if you want to favorite any or order any, joining the group will allow you to do that under your own name.  Seems simpler than logging in the old way!

Thank you and a question!

We just wanted to thank you for all of the love and support that you've shared with us.  We would also like to give a special thank you to all of you that have sent us many thoughtful gifts.  Unfortunately, a bride & groom picture frame did not have a gift tag on it and we are wondering who to thank.  If any one knows the giver of this gift, please let us know!!

Please continue to share your photos with us online at  If you need help using this service, feel free to email me and I'd be happy to help.  Just because the wedding is over, doesn't mean that I'm done blogging!  Upcoming posts will include pictures, tips (things I loved and things I would do differently on my wedding day), vendor reviews, and I'm sure I'll think of more.  The past year has involved so much planning, I think I will have to slowly transition into post-wedding mode.

A couple of quick wedding reflections:

1) Make sure you take the time to let all of the details go and truly take in the beautiful people and atmosphere around you.  These wonderful images will be embedded in your mind forever!  I'm really glad I did this!!!

2) As dull as it sounds, appoint a guest book person -or at least tell designated wedding party members/family members to encourage others to sign (we didn't do this, but since it was a regret, I figured I'd mention it to help other brides-to-be)- only 25% of our guests saw/signed our guest book and we put a lot of time/effort into designing it (it was created by our photographer with pictures from our engagement session).

Relax Time!

The wedding was absolutely amazing and more than we could've ever imagined. We feel so blessed that we could share our joy with so many family, friends, and loved ones. I want to thank everyone who was there because you truly contributed to making our day that much more special.

Please share your pictures with us by uploading them on snapfish. Here's how:
Go to  Login with the screen name "" and the password "august".  Can't wait to see your pictures!

Now it's time for the honeymoon and we can't wait!!  Will be sure to post pictures when we return!
