[05.05.2016] It was the perfect day to get married. The air was crisp and it sprinkled a little that morning. Flowers just started to bloom. And butterflies were in our stomachs. It was a beautiful spring day!
Mr. B held my hand and I gently squeezed his as we walked to the courthouse. I have never felt so excited and nervous at the same time. But when I looked at him, he gave me that smile. He has this smile where the sides of his eyes wrinkle, his eyes glisten, and his dimples deepen. He didn’t even have to say anything; I felt the warmth of his great love for me and assurance that everything will be more than fine. That it will be perfect.
And it was.
After the official ceremony, we decided to have a picnic at the beach. It was a weekday, so there were no crowds and we had the beach all to ourselves. It was intimate and perfect! All we could hear were the waves, the seagulls, and the sound of our voices and laughter. The ceremony was a bit serious, so when we got to the beach; we finally relaxed and had an amazing time.
When we decided to elope, we weren’t sure how it was going to turn out. Looking back to that beautiful day, I wouldn’t change it a bit. It was very simple and intimate. It was romantic and fun. It was all about our marriage. It was all about US. It was perfect!
We stayed at the beach for a few hours until it got a little chilly from being wet from playing with the waves. So we went home, packed our luggage, and jetsetted our way to Spain & Maldives!
"I will you love you, comfort you, honor and keep you, in sickness and in health, for richer, for poorer, for better, for worse, in sadness and in joy, to cherish and continually bestow upon you my heart’s deepest devotion, forsaking all others, keep myself only unto you as long as we both shall live."
