The wedding was dreamy. We really didn’t spend a lot of time planning it, and it went perfectly! I don’t know how that happened, but it was great. We got married in the back yard of my parents’ vacation rental house in Santa Fe. We hadn’t seen it beforehand, and it was perfect– there were four aspen trees, and a little patch of grass, and lots of things in bloom. Brian had found the minister; the Unitarian Universalist church had referred him to her, and we met her the Thursday before the wedding. She was perfect– an animal lover, very down-to-earth, and she had already put together a ceremony that we loved. The morning of the wedding, my mom and I went to the Santa Fe farmer’s market and spent $22 on four bunches of zinnias and four HUGE dahlias. My sister-in-law is a talented flower arranger, and with some ribbon and wire, and the drinking glasses from the house, she made amazing bouquets. Our parents got along. We ate delicious food. My niece was the flower girl, and was fantastic. My nephew disappeared with the rings during the ceremony and gave everyone a good laugh. The sky was blue, the temperature was in the 70s. Like I said, I don’t know how it happened, but it was perfect!
We should have more photos coming in soon.
