rachel85:  Congrats!  Your elopement sounds absolutely perfect, plus you’ll get to celebrate with friends and family later on without all the bitterness and resentment of wedding planning lol (really the best of both worlds).  So happy for you and your husband, it sounds like you guys will have a very happy marriage 🙂

rachel85:  Oh man, I totally teared up reading your update!  I love “Sigh No More”- such an amazing song (and Much Ado About Nothing, the play the song is inspired by, is my favorite Shakespeare play!).  I’m so happy that it worked out and you had a day that was just for you and him….it sounds like you have a really amazing husband.  I am sorry that things with his parents went the way they did, and I sincerely hope that someday in the future they change their tune.

(PS – my sister was married at city hall and it was one of the most beautiful ceremonies I have ever attended and I tell people that all the time!)
