fourteen years ago at sunrise on the beach we became mr & mrs. we eloped. it was me, him, the minister and two witnesses. a small affair. we are so happy to have chosen to elope, one of our best decisions among many good and not so good ones. we didn’t know all that much about a lot of things at the time, it was more luck than anything, but we know for sure that had we had the big wedding we’d now be looking at pictures of two different people and wondering what the hell we were thinking when we chose this or that.
to elope or not. when we got married we didn’t know our taste just yet, we weren’t all that firm in anything. we wouldn’t have been able to choose timeless wedding things like flowers and cake, attire, music, invitations, everything. all of the things that go into planning a wedding versus a marriage. we would now have pictures to prove just how little we did know.
did you have a big wedding, elope, small intimate wedding, or no wedding at all? are you happy with what you chose, or would you go back and do it all different? we’d love to hear your thoughts!
…and to my sweet husband, thanks for the ride that is marriage, and for the fourteen years so far…i love you.
