Nope, we more or less eloped in HI; beach wedding with just us, our son, and his parents ♥ Loved it.
We got married spur of the moment, in my parent's living room.
We waited nearly 10 years for our vow renewal, so we could have all the traditionally wedding things, like the dress, the cake, the aisle, the guests, the party, etc.
But I kept it all very casual and rustic.
the 20th is the hand-fasting anniversary of my good friend.
original wedding in las vegas, off strip. 10 yrs later, renewal of vows in a church with family, friends and our 18 month old was the flower girl. she carried 1 sprig of baby's breath,
No. We had an outside park wedding, my friend married us, our kids (his DD, my DD and DS) were our flower girls and ring bearer, my sister was MOH and his best friend was BM.It wasn't religious at all, we lit unity candles and after we kissed, we jumped over two small broomsticks.We drank sparkling cider instead of chamagne, I didn't throw my bouquet, the kids got presents...I think it was beautiful and eveybody had a good time.I wrote our ceremony, too. SO it was very personal to us and very meaningful.
