Our Ceremony

I've never blogged about our wedding, and while I don't want to bore you with 2 dozen pictures, I do want to document it on here. I thought the link-up party this week was the perfect opportunity.

Brandon and I were engaged in the Summer of 2008, and we knew right away we didn't want a big ceremony. We were still in school, broke, and just not into making a big deal out of it. 

We were a little sneaky.... we invited our best friends and family to my sister's house for our "engagement party" in October (our favorite month of the year) of 2008, but then we popped out ready for the actual wedding! 

Mouths dropped, and tears started to fall, since no one was prepared for the emotions of a ceremony. 

Well, Brandon was prepared for it, in that he knew it was coming, but he still cried more than anyone else (except his Dad, I think).

It was a short ceremony, of course. Afterwards, we had music and food, and everyone sat around the fire talking and having a wonderful time. 

We felt so fortunate that all of our favorite people we there, and we were able to have such a relaxed, enjoyable night! 

Looking back, I don't think either of us would change a thing. Everyone had a good time, there was almost no stress, and now we are happily ever after!


  1. How fun! I love how no one knew about it!! You looked beautiful!!

  2. I love that idea!! You were able to accomplish all of the "important things" on your wedding day without all the unnecessary stress! Perfect!

  3. That's the way to do it! I'm so glad you really enjoyed yoru special day!

  4. I love that you did this! I always thought that would be so much fun!

  5. How sweet! What a precious, wonderful day!
