Ok. So I'm not feeling the whole "the thing about my 10 year anniversary" vibe. But on this day, 10 years ago, Steve and I tied the knot here, at the Little Log Wedding Chapel in Gatlinburg, TN. Our wedding cost us $229 plus the gas to get there.
Only the preacher and our recently married BFFs were there to witness the momentous occasion. I wore a black dress that was intended for one of my bridesmaids. We exchanged rings bought for a quarter from a vending machine. I held a single white hardy mum. I cried tears of joy. It was my perfect wedding. Except for the black dress. I had ordered my dream dress (minus the bow), but unfortunately it couldn't be delivered in all it's bustled glory until November, a month before our initial wedding date.
We were young. And jobless. We had both just moved from Minnesota to Michigan and decided to elope because I had a Friday off of school. The 3 month wait for the wedding we had started to plan just seemed too far away. We simply couldn't wait to start our lives together as man and wife.
What a difference 10 years and 4 kids can make!
And I even photo shopped out my laugh lines below!!!
So Happy Anniversary to us!!!
I couldn't have picked a more perfect mate!
