Truth on the wedding front: we’ve been engaged for six months now and have absolutely nothing planned. Inspiration-wise, I’m set, but finalizing a venue and setting a date, for various reasons, just hasn’t come together easily and I’m totally bummed out about it.
The ups and downs these past few months have brought PJ and I closer together, but when I look at my engaged friends who have it more together than we do, I feel like theres something wrong with us and get frustrated that things aren’t happening on my timeline. It would be so much easier to to elope, but the one thing we know for sure is that we want all our family and friends there with on on our wedding day, so that option is out.
But when I saw Brad and Cynthia’s intimate and artistic wedding video I just about cried. Their wedding wants are similar to ours and their ceremony honored them beautifully.
When we do finally get our plans together, I hope it will be something like this:
“We knew we wanted our wedding ceremony to be just between the two of us and our adopted dog Kansas and for it to reflect our spiritual and vegan values. We chose Joshua Tree for its natural beauty and serenity. Our ceremony was a blend of our spiritual path A Course in Miracles, Native American traditions, and traditional and self-written vows. Because we are vegan, the food and clothing needed to be cruelty-free, free of any animal products. The location was a famous “green” house in the desert where we could meditate and celebrate in peace and love with each other and the environment. It was the perfect backdrop to our story.”
