I can't wait to show you ours. I missed last week so sneaking a few pictures of my dress in here, but they also show my flowers.
My husband and I eloped. We had been dating and planned a cruise with another couple. The closer the cruise came we started 'joking' about just getting married on the beach before boarding the boat--OR getting married in the Bahamas on the beach (which was too much of a hassle, we found out). So, the plans were set in motion. The only people that knew was the couple that went with us. Not even our families knew. I had made up announcements (we arranged for a reception a few weeks after we got back) that had a picture of the beach and lighthouse (where we got married-it's a local beach so we had visited it before this) and the front said, 'On the beaches of Sullivan's Island, on October 20th...'
Open, and said 'Chuck and Reid got married!'
We got married, then on the way to board the ship, we dropped them off at the post office. We laughed a few days later, saying the phone lines were probably burning up! It was great.
Now, on for the good stuff...pictures!
Since it was the beach, I had hubby stand with his back to me and I walked down to him.
Of course he had seen me that day, but hadn't seen my dress, etc. (oh yeah-did I mention I had to change at a local establishment because we rode there together! A hoot!)
Happily married couple! Toes in the sand and all.
More of the wedding party.
