Wow, to say I am in shock, is an understatement!!!!  I found PW in 2010 while searching for inspiration pics for a fall wedding and fell in love with this beautiful community full of the most amazing ladies! 

Fast forward almost 2-1/2 years later, and I still love PW.  It is amazing to see our brides-to-be become engaged, begin planning their weddings and coming back after being married and sharing their amazingly breathtaking photos and sharing with all of us details about what happened during their wedding day.  Through this community, I have made many amazing friendships and even got the opportunity to meet two (so far) members!!! 

I have loved weddings ever since I can remember, and have had the amazing opportunity to plan several of my friends' weddings.  I have found some talented ladies and I have learned so many things here.

WOW!  I cannot believe I actually made it to 15K posts.  When I first came to PW and was lurking for a few months before actually creating my full profile and jumping in on the boards, although sheepishly at first, I never would have thought that I would have 1000 posts, let alone 15K. 

I fell completely in love with this site and still love being around to this day.  There is so much love here and a such sense of community!!  I received so much help during the stressful days of planning along with the craziness that came along with and it was so amazing that I had so much support, cheering me along, and just plain fun in the days leading up to and on our wedding day! I have met some of the most AMAZING ladies here and become friends with quite a few of you, and through those friendships, I have and are continuing to learn how to be a better wife, friend, sister, and so on.

You ladies were with me through some difficult and stressful times over the last 2 years and I could not be more grateful.  DH and I have gone from getting married in October 2010 to becoming homeowners last June, and all of the craziness with those major life events.  Whenever I have needed to vent, laugh, cry, ask questions, or just simply be myself, you ladies have and continue to be here ALWAYS!!! 

PW is the most amazing site/community that I have come across and I will do my best to make it as welcoming as I felt upon joining. 

DH's post will be added once he finishes it, but I could not stop posting because I had to wait on him.  LOL

I truly 100% love all of you ladies and I'm looking forward to seeing all of the beautiful weddings and being a part of your planning process!!!


EDIT:  He's finally gotten to writing it and all I can say is, he's so silly!!!


Ok so I'm sure the rest of the husbands of wives on here are thinking the same things
-This is what my wife has been doing all the time while I'm at work?
-This is the reason nothings getting done around the house?
-This is the reason she's happy until i get home?
-This is the reason she's always talking about what seems like Cartoon Character named people?
But most importantly
-This is the reason she's been so happy for a while now...and all i had to do.... was leave her alone.
Apparently three's a large number of really nice people on this site, like i said in a previous posting write-up
for my wifey.
She's really the best thing that has happened to me, and lately i have been looking forward to the rest of our lives.
Im sure things will go really smoothly as long as she has women like you all, and a website like this...
... to keep things quiet around here.
Love you honey...... ok.. ill leave ya alone now.

Our niece was such a ham that day and our poor nephew wanted to be anywhere except walking down the aisle with so many strangers.  LOL


I love how my MOH was looking at our niece.
