I had mentioned in a previous blog that we wanted to get married at city hall. What I discovered months ago was that the city no longer performs ceremonies. They are re-introducing this in about a month (go figure!) so we had to figure out what alternative arrangement we could make for the ceremony. I never wanted anything too big and the thought of saying our vows in front of everybody we know made me absolutely nervous. So in the end, we found an officiant with Kettle Creek Weddings and last Thursday, went to her home to get married. Her husband, also an officiant, and son, served as our witnesses. It was absolutely perfect. I wouldn’t want it any other way.
This past Saturday, friends and family gathered in our home for hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, wine we had made ourselves, and karaoke. It was such a blast and everyone agreed that it perfectly suited us. The weather was perfect, kids had fun and the food was delicious. The party lasted until 3 a.m. for some brave souls, but I think it is safe to say that everyone had a good time.
To my fellow bloggers and future brides, be sure to enjoy your day. I know I did.
Thank you to everyone who has read my posts and commented. I really do appreciate all of the support.
