steve and i spent our morning at saint john the apostle roman catholic church signing our marriage agreement with father tran. this means our wedding ceremony date and time are on the books! since we are members of saint joseph’s in herndon who received an exception to bring our priest, father jim angert, to saint john’s chapel in beautiful downtown leesburg, there are still a few more hoops to jump through, but we’re well on our way.
we chose saint john’s in leesburg for our 2:00 pm ceremony because of my family’s ties to the area with two sets of aunts, uncles, and cousins. the historic church is also the prettiest in the area and perfectly sized for our guests. our intimate group of 150 will max out the pews making for a very cozy and special wedding mass. planning a catholic wedding is no simple task, even when you are both catholic, as we are learning. all of the excitement of pre cana begins in january and i know steve is especially looking forward to the couples retreat (just kidding).
