That is right! J and I are officially married as of 12/14/ 2009. After trying to plan a wedding for 4 years we decided to just head to the local courthouse and get it over with. I honestly could not be happier. It was the shortest ceremony I have ever been part of (it literally lasted 2-3minutes), and it was nice because it was just the two of us and the judge. I am not a fan of being center stage in front of a large amount of people so the laidback setting was perfect for me.We are hoping to have a small renewal ceremony on our anniversary next December with just a few family and friends.
J and I have been together since October 2004 and we have been engaged since April 2005. So our getting married has been a long time coming. We had originally planned to get married at a little bed and breakfast, outside, in the winter. Then we changed our minds about an outdoor winter wedding. We then set our sights on the 20th Century Theatre in Cincinnati, OH. We both love music and movies so we thought that a movie-themed wedding would be awesome. But we just never managed to save up the money to have our wedding there. Then I believe we discussed Vegas and New York as possible locations for just the two of us to go and get hitched. But none of these were in the cards for us.
I am just glad that we can now call each other husband and wife and it be legit. We have considered ourselves married for so long that now that we are married it feels no different. I will keep you updated on whether or not I feel married finally.
