We said ‘I do’

My Mister and I met in late 2010. It was nervewracking immediately connecting with someone but not really knowing where I stood. Man, oh man, he made me love everything about life. Still does. At the time that we met, he was living in Beaumont. That felt like a world away. And he made me wait forever for our first kiss. It was worth it, P.S.. We dated for three months before he moved to Austin. I helped him decorate his place, pick out new furniture (IKEA bound baby!), and a theme for his bathroom. It was sweet times. When he proposed, we already knew we were going to get married. It seemed almost like a formality but it was beautiful in our own dorky, quirky way.

We booked the Bridgeport BrewPub in Portland, OR (I’ll tell you why later), found an officiant, invited our closest friends, bought a suit for him, a dress for me, and plane tickets. And….we got married. And it was beautiful! Made history even by getting married in that room!

Thanks for reading! Has anyone else out there gotten married in a sort-of destination wedding?! Please share!
