Momschooling~ I have to tell you that I checked out your link and the goth dress is the one I almost bought for my wedding. Dh wanted the suit, also, but it ended up not happening for us. I LOVE that dress, it's beautiful and i hope you get it!! (seems like the decision has been made after the results of that poll!)
So I felt inspired to tell you my wedding story, since I've been lurking along this thread for months. It was so magical for DH and I the night that we *knew* we wanted to be lifemates that honestly, we wanted to keep it all to ourselves. I could go on for hours telling you how painfully inlove we are, after many years together, and what a huge decision it was for both of us. . . We didn't see any reason to include anyone in our wedding since it was such an intimate and powerful thing for us. We found a resort in Estes Park, CO that had a beautiful gazeebo by the river, and a Scottish woman to marry us with a Celtic hand-fastening. We chose the Autumn Equinox and were married alone, by the river, in one of the most beautiful moments in my life. In the end we invited 2 very close friends to take pictures and hold our rings, but that was the extent of it. Our families were completely supportive of not being there, and understood our desire for intimacy. It was a truly special night, especially when we found out that we also conceived that night. No, not out of drunken newleywed sex but as a gift from the heavens to bless our marriage
I can't WAIT to hear about yours! When are you getting married?
ps. I remember earlier you mentioned not being able to get married Cathlic outdoors. Same happened with my friend and her husband who had their hearts set on getting married in the mountians among the aspen trees. They found a pastor that was really cool, and they had to have a "pre" wedding inside a chapel first, and then drove out to the mountains for "their" wedding if that makes sense. That way they were married in the church, but had their wedding outdoors.
