the hunt continues

Well, I wish I could write that everything has been worked out with the church these past few days, and first-come, first-serve prevailed, but unfortunately that is just not the case.  It’s been such a mess. We have argued every point we could think of, but nothing has worked.  We’re just beating a dead horse at this point.  The church gave us some options, but they aren’t really that great. So yesterday Greg, my mom and my (almost) step-dad (wow, that’s so weird to say, but weird in a really-great-I’m-so-happy-for-my-mom sort of way!) went scouting out churches in the Leeds/Moody/Odenville area with same similar architectural style as our original church….which I will show you again, because I really LOVE it…

And I haven’t shown you the inside before because I wanted to save some things for surprises. But, now I will show you because I want everyone to see how beautiful it is, and why I’ve been so upset to lose it….

Sigh.  Moving on.  One church they found yesterday is almost as pretty on the outside, but the inside is a bit of a different story.  Let’s just say I’m pretty sure it was last remodeled in the 1970’s when orange and brown were in style.  And ironically, if there’s one color I have wanted to avoid for our October wedding, it’s orange.  But here’s the outside…

There’s another church in Odenville that is in the running for it’s pretty exterior, but unfortunately there was no one present yesterday for Greg and my mom to talk to, nor could they get inside the church to check things out. Here is that church…

So, we don’t have any answers yet, and I keep wishing it’s all just been a bad dream. Working all night and sleeping all day for 3 straight days kinda makes me feel like I’m temporarily separated from the world.  But, reality will kick on today, and I’ll have to really sit down and contemplate our options.  Greg has been so wonderful through all this. He and my mom have been my heros these past few days. They totally took control and have done everything in their power to try to make things right.  And if that wasn’t enough, I got the sweetest text message from Greg while I was at work tonight.  He told me how he couldn’t wait to see me walk down the aisle, and that I would be beautiful no matter where it was.  🙂  Orange carpet or not, I’ll be walking to meet my perfect husband who loves and supports me no matter what!  I’m a lucky girl.  And I’ll have another very special wedding today to brighten my spirits!  My dear sweet mother will marry her sweetheart today, and we couldn’t be more excited for the two of them. She deserves every bit of happiness!  So stay tuned!
