Just Married

Posted by thearrow on November 5, 2009

Steve and I took the leap of faith today at the court house. The weather was on our side, or, rather, especially on mine since I was wearing one of the two gowns with just a thin shawl. I saw this dress right after I fell for the animal-print one and absolutely loved it, so I HAD to get it. It’s a faded gold on top and a really nice turqoise on the bottom. I call it the champagne dress.

In keeping with the theme that if friends hadn’t helped us, we wouldn’t have gotten married, one of the friends who came to witness the momentous occasion gave us the cash we had forgotten to get for the ceremony. Heck, I even forgot my ring at home, but thought we would exchange rings at the big ceremony we’re having on Saturday.

The same friend gave me a really beautiful bouquet of white roses. Naturally, I had not thought about getting one myself and Steve is too frazzled these days to have remembered or reminded me. The same friend took a lot of pictures, so he was really instrumental to our ceremony. Which made him happy because, unfortunately, he cannot be with us on Saturday.

The other friend who came today is going to be one of my maids of honor. She got married in the exact same room, by the exact same lawyer. She has an even funnier story because she couldn’t take a day off from work to get married (talk about work-life balance), so she and her husband went there during their lunch break and then went back to work. Apparently, there are two more couples in her group of friends who got married there, so now we clearly have to start a club.

And yes, I am going to post pics, but I have no idea when. We still have a lot of things to do. I just hope we won’t be too exhausted on Saturday to show up at our wedding ceremony.

    (that couldn’t-take-a-day-off-from-work-to-get-married situation is unacceptable. is that friend of yours in charge with the red button and the only person in usa who knows how to use it, or what?)

    I did the deed myself six months ago, hours before my dissertation defense 🙂
