5 Years Ago....

Scott Wedding-009

True Elopement Style....(our lil country wedding)

We told only one soul....My friend Kimberly....I'm not even sure why I told...(probably b/c I can't keep a secret)

B and I decided on a Wed....I mean why wait...we had been dating a while...let's just do it......no stress....no fuss....We called a B&B (how rustic is that house?!)

Scott Wedding-069

and they did an elopement package...and had 1 room left. I'm sure the owners were a bit surprised when I said the wedding was that Saturday and could they put everything together....She said NO PROBLEM. Kathy did a fantastic job....the cake, music, flowers, room, and dinner that night in a nearby barn. How much more "us" could that have been?!

Thanks to me telling that one dear soul Kimberly, she asked if we had the marriage license? WHAT? WHY? Well b/c there was a 72 hr waiting period. (eek) We called the license office and they closed in 30 mins...and yes we needed it then 0r no wedding on Saturday. Off we ran and got it with 1 minute to spare....(I was sweating)

Saturday came and the day was perfect....

we found some cute tack and feed shops that sold the most incredible furniture. B bought me a rustic floor lamp. (points). Then we walked the small town's main square and bought a few more trinkets before heading back to the B&B to get ready.

The ceremony was perfect....just the two of us overlooking the lake

Scott Wedding-012....couldn't have planned it better myself. (grins)

Scott Wedding-013

We got married on 11-4 (if you reverse the date it's my birthday) and so it was only fitting to get married at 5:07 (if you reverse that it's his bday july 5th)

I still chuckle about the guests staying that weekend. Most were young couples like us and were there celebrating their anniversaries. Everyone was shocked that we just up and eloped. Eyebrows were raised....and so being me I gave my 2 cents..."No I'm not pregnant...we actually got married b/c we love each other..." Crazy that in this day in age that's the first thing you think when a couple elopes. Everyone had a good laugh and champagne was passed around and toasted us on our happy day....

Just imagine the phone calls the next day to our families. (my mother was not amused)

We had a reception a few months later in a barn (where else) for friends and family......

Happy 5 crazy years B.

Gotta end it with a little Collin Raye's One Boy One Girl song...makes me all giddy
