Welcome to my parents’ backyard.
The guests watched us from above as we exchanged vows. I have to admit, I was a little nervous because I wasn’t sure what David would think of me with that much make up and hair spray on. He just had a big smile on his face the whole time, so I knew he was happy.
We “patched” the vows together ourselves which included:
- Thank you to our parents
- Couple’s Story (David doing lots of activities to meet girls and me being an Ice Queen)
- Reading of the Velveteen Rabbit (it reminds us of how we want to grow old together)
- Exchange of vows/rings
- Hands Ceremony
I was so happy to hold his hands and exchange vows, they were really meaningful to us. I think there were even a few tears from the macho guys in the audience (Grandpa & Dad!).
Before we knew it, it was time to kiss the bride; David had me practice the kiss many times before
Then there was some more kissing – we’re married!
We walked back up to the “Bier Garten” where everyone had drinks/appetizers,
and we signed our certificate and took pictures.

The wedding party got to take some fun pictures:
Ok, last kissy picture; it’s too cute not to include.
Stay tuned for the after-party!
