Where Did You Get Married?

Posted by   + Show Post
I loved looking at the wedding pictures some of you posted. My hubby and I are pretty outdoorsy and big in to hiking, so we decided to get married on top of a mountain in CO. It was the two of us, our Minister, his brother and my brother in attendance. We all hiked up and had a what dh and I thought was our perfect ceremony. Where were you married? In a church, outside, a court house, at home, on the water, where? I love these stories.

Wow! This is such a sweet and sad story. That was just an all consuming time of grief. I think that was really cool that you married there so your DH's grandfather could attend.  I think you should have another ceremony and say your vows. Thanks for sharing your story.

At DH's grandparents retirement home, in the courtyard surrounded by old people.  His grandfather was to sick to travel.  It was crazy it was 4 days after 9/11.  My MIL played the exit music when my dad was walking me in.  Grandfather never made it past we are gathered here to join.....then he started praying for the victims of 9/11.  When he finished he turned and got on his scooter to leave.  DH and I just stood there not knowing what to do.  My mom finally said kiss the bride and it was over.  I like to joke with DH that we aren't really married we never said vows.

 Just out of curiosity, why did you wait to buy your rings?
That must have been so romantic!

My husband and I have together for 18yrs, married 13 of them. We had a small civil ceremony in our hometown with immediate family only. Then we flew to Europe for two weeks. We bought our wedding rings in southern France and did our ring exchange on top of the Eiffel Tower.

We wanted them to be really special so we looked for just the right rings in France.

I tried to get DH to do it but he won't.  His grandfather tried to get us to do it for years in his apartment with just us and Grandmother.

I think DH is about to leave me so it really won't be an option.  Tomorrow will be our 16th year together.

Thank you.  I think 99% of our problems are coming from the stress of being parents.  We differ on most things having to do with raising our DS.  Anyone else feel that parenting stress is killing you relationship?
