Alright, I was requested by a couple of readers to share some wedding pics and a recap. Firstly, I’m humbled that any of my readers want to hear more of the details about my wedding. Secondly, I was holding off for fear that things have been all about me and my engagement/wedding/marriage lately. However, I’m throwing caution to the wind and will share the deets!
After all, everyone loves love, right?
No Need to Break the Bank to have a Dream Wedding
There are no surprises, that we planned our wedding with financial caution in mind, eh? We skipped some costly things but on the things we did include, we did it well. My takeaway suggestion to any couple planning a wedding is to decide what truly matters to you about your wedding and put most of your focus on that!
We planned our wedding in a 1/2 hour walk one day. Initially, we thought to have a small intimate ceremony but as we talked we realized there were a lot of lovely people in our lives who wanted to witness our nuptials. With Covid and all, it was easy to decide to skip the big reception with dinner and just have a cake and coffee. That decision alone saved us thousands of dollars.
For us, the meat (or the main course if you will) was the ceremony. Therefore, we did all the things we wanted to do in our ceremony. It was about an hour-long but I believe if you ask anyone who was there, they won’t tell you it was boring.
The ceremony is all about the drama and our pastor helped fine-tune every fun and meaningful detail…
