    I'm pretty bummed and relieved at the same time. I have been wanting Elizabeth Medina as our photographer since I started planning our wedding over a year ago. I contacted her via email in June, and she said that she was available for our date, but could not finalize anything until we gave our deposit, which is COMPLETELY understandable. Life caught up to me, and of course, one thing after another demanded our $$....

    Fast forward to Friday afternoon. I am sick with the flu, but going over finances, realize that I can do the deposit on October 1st. I emailed Elizabeth, and she is no longer available for our day!! She did say however, that she could make the next day work. We have already sent out our save the date shot kits, complete with our wedding date imprinted on the shotglasses and on the card. I was in tears, and called FI at work. He knows how much having her photograph the wedding means to me, so he suggested that we do the wedding the next day, regardless of the STD's. I was so relieved that he suggested that, it's something I would have never thought of as appropriate! The more I thought about it, the more it seems ok. I just have to contact all guests now, and thank goodness, no one has booked yet!!

    Resort is also available for that date, so now I just have to wait for OCT 1st when I can truly lock EM in!!! Not exactly how I wanted things to start out, but come on, she really is the BEST!!!!

      What a bummeR!!! I am so sorry this has happened to you! I freaking hate money and wish we were all rich.. lol!

      ANyways I think if that is the photographer you want .. go for it!! I wouldnt change anything until october 1st when you pay her the deposit for sure!! But I think it will all work out for the best no worries!!!

        Thanks for the encouraging words... of course no one else in my life (except for FI) gets all of this! I am holding off until all is said and done with this damn deposit situation. Wouldn't it be PERFECT if we could just pay everything up front in cash...... oh dreams :)

          Good for you. If Elizabeth is what you want, then Elizabeth is what you must have! I'm glad it's working out for you.

            Your photographer is WAY more important than a few shot glasses, especially since no one has booked yet. I wouldn't worry about the date being wrong, in the end, you'll have gorgeous wedding photos and will definitely be happy.

                You'll look back on this and laugh later when you're drinking out of the shot glasses. If you want that photographer, GET HER!

                    I was taking a trip down memory lane- this was my second thread I ever started!!! Wanted to report- that if this had not have happened, it would have been a downpour ALL day on the original wedding day.

                    Everything happens for a reason- and thanks to this situation, we had perfect weather! Unfortunately, there was a bride that got married on our original day- I felt so bad for her! It was raining SOOOO hard!

                      Love how it worked out!! Very cute! We changed our date after the STDs too. Oh well- my STDs sucked so I guess everything happens for a reason! lol
