18 years ago today

hubby and i married. It was a quick, decided that very morning, small wedding and was very nice. My mom sent flowers, my maid of honor who was a baker baked a 3 layer tiered cake complete with fresh daisies, hubbys best friends wife and i got food together that day, our landlord brought wine, crystal, took the photos... i wore my maid of honors dress and hubby wore his navy uniform. I don't think i even wore shoes! We stood in front of the fireplace mantle which held fall leaves and pumpkins and had the justice of the peace preform the service. Hubby says i did say "to obey" but i don't remember that part! Later that evening we played Risk to the wee hours with the best man and his wife ... it was small, sweet, and very personal. Couldn't have asked for anything more! (i think we spent less than 200$, including the JP's fee)

Sounds wonderful! I think more people should have weddings like that, with less focus on putting on a show. Congrats!

Congratulations! My wedding was almost as impromptu; we decided to get married 6 days before Thanksgiving four years ago, but our families managed to put together a nice little wedding on Thanksgiving morning.

We celebrate on Thanksgiving day; the date doesn't matter!
