- Wedding: January 1994
My FI and I are eloping on Sunday morning!! It has been hard to keep the secret from my friends and family. Especially since people are starting to ask what our wedding plans are, and when (especially my FI’s mom). I feel a little bad not including folks, but I know this is what will be better for my FI and I in the long run. We are both really private people, and because of my chronic health problems our finances have been super tight. We’ve been together nearly 4 years, and I am reeeeeeeally looking forward to making things official and becoming his wife.
We are getting married on the beach this Sunday morning after our 2 month engagement. Our friend will be officianting for us and another friend who is a photographer will be photographing us. I think it will be really special. We’ve got an adorable cake topper, picked out our little cake which we will pick up from Whole Foods Market, got our matching rings, and got me a dress and veil (I’m wearing a white dress with a french blue lace overlay, so it will look mostly blue). Here are some example pictures!
We are exchanging vows here:
I even got us some special ‘lucky pennies.’ They look like this:
After the ceremony we are going to the beach boardwalk to go on the amusement park rides! If the weather is warm enough, we’ll have a picnic on the beach! We are headed further down the road to another beach town later where we will stay the night, and plan to eat at one of our favorite restaurants which is right on the ocean, and has amazing food. I’m bringing a bottle of red wine I’ve been saving, and a bottle of champagne his parents gave us.
I picked out wedding announcements. Ours look something like this, but the wording is different. It is hard to believe they are going to be mailed out soon!!!!!!!!!!!
We went and got our marriage license yesterday! Things are getting real! I’m a tiny bit nervous, but mainly just excited!
