I’m not going to bombard you with millions of photos from our wedding as it wasn’t an elaborate affair with photographers, florists, caters…. or even people! For various complicated reasons, we wanted to keep it small (just us and Jordan’s aunt and uncle as witnesses) and it was mostly a secret! I would be lying if I said I wasn’t worried that we made the wrong choice by going it alone. Would we be lonely? Would we be sad? Would our families be upset? Since my mom died a few years ago and my relationship with my dad is strained at the best of times, I also worried how emotional the day would be without parents to guide me through it. Jordan and I talked all of these worries to death, but in the end we decided it was the best choice for us. I know this might sound like a cliché but our day was everything I hoped it would be. The focus was solely on us and the huge commitment we were finally making to each other. It was an emotional day, but emotional for the right reasons (well apart from my minor hair meltdown – the hair that you see in these pictures is mostly the work of my wonderful husband who stepped in to help me tame my thick, uncooperative hair and prevent a nervous breakdown).
A big thank you to Jordan’s aunt and uncle for sharing our day, making it all the more special for us and for seeing us through our journey to adulthood.
