- Wedding: September 2017
I’m married!!!!… and no one knows except for family and very close friends. I was supposed to get married on September 20th. As many of you know my godmother is dying of cancer and she has maybe days left. It was very important to me that she be at my wedding. So over the weekend FI (now husband) got married with my parents, his dad and siblings, my grandma, my stepdad’s family and my dad’s family (all immediate family!) and my bff and FI’s bff all in attendance. It was small, quiet, romantic, and super special. We had my BIL take some photos although those were just to capture moments on the day of, since all the frills were cut out. We had no bridal party, no flowers or centerpieces, I wore my dress, my husband (weird!) wore his suit and my family wore their best and we got married down at city hall with everyone who matters present.
I won’t be posting any big recaps. It’s been a long build up to this day and in the end all that mattered was that I got to marry the love of my life with my most loved people around me. We literally just couldn’t wait any longer, and the thought of my Godmother not being there just killed me. So we made it happen! We will still be doing a family reception on the 20th so we don’t lose all the money we invested, although it will still be very scaled back from the original plans. We will have photos from that at some point in the near future. So I will probably end up sharing some of those.
I wanted to post and let you all know though because really we aren’t going to make any big announcements. In light of what my family is going through right now, we just want to keep it quiet for now.
It’s a very strange feeling to be officially married. I don’t feel much different, but somehow I feel completely different if that makes any kind of sense. it’s just strange…. I love my husband way more now if that’s possible. Not because we are married, but because he has really been the best support for me during all of this. I realize that no one will ever “get” me the way he does. He really is my other half.
So bees, after a couple years of waiting for such a big day, it came and went and was nothing like I imagined or planned for it to be. It was better…. way better.
