  • Wedding: November 1999

Were engaged in April 2009 & married December 2010.  I didn’t even think about when we would actually get married/what we would do until probably February 2010.  We were not in a rush to get married because we had some other things to take care of.

  • Wedding: August 2012

@ontbride:  We were engaged for 15 months exactly. 


A lot happened in that time frame. 


We cancelled a DW that was paid for, my dad died (we knew it was coming), then eloped 3 months later. We had the hardest time figuring where to have this wedding.  I did the research for 3 different countries and 5 different states!  We were now eloping and the options were endless.

  • Wedding: May 2013

@ontbride:  We got engaged in December of 2010, and just eloped on May 3rd. We had a whole wedding planned for August 4th, but last minute decided to scrap it and run off to the coast on our own. I would choose to do the same thing a thousand times over. 🙂

  • Wedding: July 2013

We got engaged in March without announcing it since we live together anyway.  We shopped for and bought rings, planned our elopement, elopement weekend, and then our honeymoon for a month later.  When we return Monday we’ll tell everyone in addition to mailing marriage announcements.  Our announcements request only donations to St. Jude Children’s Hospital as we are older and well setteled.  It’s been really fun sharing our secret together and sometimes hard when I want to share my excitement with others, but I’m very reserved and prefer it this way.  However I am so excited to be changing my last name as soon as possible and us both wearing our wedding rings!
