WordPress allows me to upload videos to my site, so I thought I’d give it a try with a very, very important video. Well, important to me. ❤
On April 1, 2017, my husband and I pulled off a fantastic April Fool’s Day event. We got married…again! 🙂 James and I were formally wed on June 8, 2016, in a small ceremony at our local County Registrar’s office. My mum, brother-in-law, and his lovely wife attended. And we kept it a secret from *most* of our friends and family.
On April 1st, we had our ceremony at the Desert View Tower in Jacumba Hot Springs, California, with our friends and family. The Tower is one of our favorite places to visit, not only for the beautiful views, but for the history, the pups, and the beautiful people who live there. The desert, a Dune-themed ceremony, tacos, cupcakes, dancing, and camping. It was perfect.
We didn’t exchange rings during our ceremony. Instead, we offered rings to each of our guests, as a pledge of our love and loyalty to each of them. I still get warm and fuzzy when we hang out with friends who are still wearing their rings. ❤ We made our big “April Fool’s” announcement after our ceremony and dinner. 🙂 And I’m so glad we opted to keep it a surprise.
Celebrating our union with friends and family in our own wonderful way. Such an incredible memory.
I am so grateful. And we are both so loved.
