I got the lucky end of the stick, we married in Vegas, since we were living there at the time in the court house, funny story btw, anyway, a year later after moving back to our hometown, his close friends threw us a surprise wedding reception!!! Really super sweet because I didn't know any of these people, just barely met them and I'm the only freaking american there so it was a bit uncomfortable but very sweet nonetheless because they paid for the food and the decorations, etc. I still cry about when I think about their generosity!
Anyway, my pics of those days are in the garage and we don't have the scanner hooked up yet, so I'll post mine in a few days or so.
Lake Meade!!!! Hissy I love that place, we used to go there every chance we could get and then we would go the other direction and go to the mountains Mt. Charles? or something like that where there was snow!!!!! Even at night during the moonlight, it's absolutely beautiful, especially when heading back to LV and seeing all the lights in the middle of the freaking desert was really amazing, I still get chills and tingles thinking about that place, many memories for us, mostly good with the bad.
Everyone's pictures are sooo pretty, and Sicy, I don't know, we did it pretty cheap, married in the court paid I think $35 dollars, and I didn't wear anything fancy at all nor did he. We were both pretty damn nervous!!
Anyway, we had eloped a month earlier and then decided to marry officially the following month. But we were so nervous, we both smoked heavily at the time, we're in the court house and hardly looked at each other or spoke. We stood pretty far apart from each other. There were other couples that were being lovey dovey with each other, smooching and holding hands, but we were standing apart. When it was our turn, the lady asks us 'umm, are ya getting married?' with this look in her eye. I said 'yes we are' and she shook her head a little and said 'okay, then lets begin with the information', etc. Anyway, we got out of the courthouse and started walking back to our vehicle, we didn't speak, I broke the ice by saying 'well that's that, lets have a cigarette to celebrate'. Then we relaxed. We still laugh about it till this day!!!
We have thought of doing another one, but to us, we've always been married to each other from the first day we met, so no sense in spending money just to re-iterate our love for each other. Okay, now I'm teary eyed. I've noticed I'm a lot more talkative at night!!!
