Today I have a fellow DC area blogger for you, who is also planning her wedding (pretty soon we'll be hearing the wedding bells ringing for Christy!) I read Christy's blog, Planes, Trains, and Running Shoes way back when I was in a Long Distance Relationship. Luckily, she and her fiancé both live in the same city now, though! Check her out--I'll just be over here, drinking a mimosa on the beach (yes, I feel your glares at me...I'm ok with it) :)
Hey there! I'm Christy and I blog over at Planes, Trains and Running Shoes where I chronicle my daily adventures in running, traveling, living life in DC and more, recently wedding planning! It's a little crazy to be guest posting for Jenn while she's busy getting married/honeymooning because that will be me in just 5 short months! I don't really remember when Jenn and I started reading blogs, but it was through the wedding planning process that we really started to connect! Jenn and I have a lot in common: we live in the same area, are both planning weddings, love to read, love to cook and we both started out in long distance relationships. I've loved reading all of Jenn's posts about wedding planning, so for my guest post, I'm going to let you know a little about myself through the details of my own wedding!
The Who: You already know that I'm Christy. I work in DC doing nonprofit fundraising. On my blog, I call my fiance The Pilot. He's a commercial airline pilot.
The What: We got engaged at our favorite spot in DC - the World War II Memorial on the National Mall. To incorporate our mutual loves of both travel and DC, we're having a travel theme wedding in the heart of DC.

The When: September 13, 2014 (I'll skip over the why because I think that's pretty obvious!)
The How: We're incorporating our theme through the entire wedding. From the airplane cufflinks The Pilot will be wearing to a world map seating chart and tables named after places we've traveled together. The signage directing our guests from place to place will be reminiscent of an airport and I can't wait to see how it all comes together!
So, there you have it! Congratulations to Jenn! I wish you and MG all the love and happiness in the world! Have fun in Antigua!
