We set this date about 3 weeks ago. Since then, we've seen a hurricane and a tornado on the East Coast. Lucky us we picked this 75* perfectly sunny day to do our Save the Date/Engagement photo's.
Of course then we went back to how we met...a mutual friends birthday party - I almost didn't go, he stopped by on his way to another party (he never made it). What would have happened if we turned left instead of right? We probably would never have met.
We got engaged and found our site by chance, and they just happen to have our desirable date available. It was the ONLY date available in May. We are lucky to have found it. The site is gorgeous, the Wedding Coordinator caring, funny, and knowledgeable. What if we had waited a few weeks to look at the site? We probably wouldn't have found it and had to go somewhere else. Timing is everything.
