  • Wedding: December 2010

That is exactly what we did!  We went to Savannah, Georgia, to get married–just the two of us, no family, no friends, no wedding party–just us. We had a beautiful wedding, romantic, intimate, and perfect.  Then later, eight months later, we had a reception, but we had a reception type of reception, not a party. 

Don’t expect to avoid people being angry though, because several of my family members were upset that we didn’t have the wedding here. So there was some stress in before the wedding. Mom REALLY was NOT happy.  But she got over it, thankfully!

There was very little stress, practically none. I would do the same way again in a heart beat. And really, that’s what we had to decide was whether it was about us and the wedding we wanted, or others and the wedding they wanted. We decided that we would have to live with our decision a lot longer than other people would. Because for them, there would be other weddings where they would be the guests, but for us, this was the only wedding where we would be the bride and groom.

We are doing a destination because we want to avoid a big, traditional affair, but since we are both only children, running away would cause a family feud for the record books. Lately though, I have been wanting to do a courthouse ceremony so we can legally be married and worry about a wedding later.
