Congratulations!!! It looks like a lovely wedding, “official” or not! I can’t believe that happened! But in the end you had a wonderful day, so that’s all that matters. 😀

CONGRATS!!! Very exciting! And just think of the story you have to tell for years and years, “Yeah, well my OFFICIANT didn’t even show up on my wedding day!!”

Omg how crazy! I had the same fear since I hadn’t met our officiant before the big day so I made sure to have a copy of our ceremony just in case! You looked gorgeous and glad the no show didn’t ruin your day! Are you going to wear your dress again to go to the courthouse?!

Adorable pictures!!

Also, you might win the Calmest WeddingBee Bride Ever Award. I can’t imagine too many people handling their officiant not showing up and ending up not legally married on their wedding day as well as you are. Kudos!

That is crazy weird that the officiant didn’t show up!  Did you call him the day before to confirm?  And for him to say he never heard of you?  That is just nutty!  Good thing you have the emails!  Did you pre–pay him?  I hope you’re able to get your $$ back if you did!

At least you did get to say your vows in front of family and friends and continue the celebration!  That’s all that matters … that you were able to continue on even though the officiant didn’t show up!
