Latin Beats

Our choreographer for the first dance recently listened to our track and has suggesting we take lessons in various Latin rhythms. We are going to start with salsa and work our way through rumba, cha cha, and whatever else we can find. We'll start individual sessions next summer. I really hope we can get good enough to try some lifts.

In other news, I am still procrastinating on the save the date cards. I hope to have them finished this week, so we can get them in the mail.

Not much more to report. Most decisions have been made. Now it's mostly about fundraising.

Master of Ceremonies

Sarah and I have had several conversations about who is going to officiate the public ceremony. We want it to be a friend of ours, but we weren't sure whether we needed that person to be officially ordained (Maine allows internet ministers to perform weddings) or if we would just let that person officiate at the public spectacle, then make it official at the courthouse. I think we have decided on the latter. A friend of mine from work is a notary, which allows you to perform weddings in Maine. Normally they charge a nominal fee, but she said she would happily do it for free. That is exactly the right price.
