We were married at around 3pm (I think) 10 years ago today. I married a guy, who, I had found out, worshipped the ground I walked on, came from a loving family, would do anything for me, at any cost and loved me more than life itself. (Gosh how things change! Just kidding!)
We had planned to have a reasonably lavish (that's 'lavish' not 'lavosh', the unleavened yeast free bread) wedding at an inner city hotel because a lot of guests were travelling from interstate and this hotel would provide the ceremony, reception and accommodation. About 6 months before the wedding, my husband lost his job and although he only took a couple months to find another one, we knew we couldn't afford it.
Instead, we had a beautiful ceremony and reception here at our home for about 40 guests with the wedding catered by a wonderful guy who went above and beyond with the quality and quantity of food. We didn't skimp on the photos or the honeymoon and had a wonderful week soaking up the sun in Bali. The photographer was fantastic as well, photographing my husband getting ready and myself getting ready at the apartment we shared before we bought our house (my sister had conveniently taken over the lease), at the ceremony, about 6 different locations around where we live and later on (around midnight) at our city motel.
It was a lovely wedding and a lovely reception and it's been a wonderful 10 years. We've had our ups and downs but we've got 2 beautiful children, 2 dogs and a pretty wonderful life. I couldn't really imagine it any other way. Love you honey and Happy Anniversary!!!
