Our First Wedding

Brian and I  initially planned to be wed in December 2006.   In fact, a Christmas wedding was something that we both were surprised to learn the other wanted when we first started dating in October of 2004.  But, when Brian’s Grandma Hig became ill, we moved the wedding up almost 10 months and had a very simple ceremony in January 2006.  All of my Grandparents had previously passed, and Grandma Hig was Brian’s only living Grandparent.  It was important to both of us that she be there to celebrate our wedding.

Here we are with Grandma Hig.

Our first “wedding cake” was actually fried ice cream in a local Mexican restaurant.

Since we had already booked our reception hall for December, and the deposit was NONREFUNDABLE,  we chose to wait to have our big wedding celebration, complete with wedding gown, tuxes, and wedding cake in December like we had originally planned.

People often ask us which anniversary we celebrate, when we were married in January or when we had our wedding in December.  We celebrate our anniversary in January.  But, we have lots of good memories in December.

I’ll share pictures from our wedding celebration soon.
