Last month, in front of close family and friends in Costa Rica, we made it official (well, as official as we can until we make it official-official when we get to a state where gay marriage is legal). There were a few missing people who wanted to be there, but for one reason or another could not make it (we missed you!). Other than that, it was all absolutely perfect in every way.
We rented out a villa near Dominical, Costa Rica. It was just us, family, friends, drinks, great food, sunshine, and relaxation. Everyone there made it perfect. We wouldn't have wanted it any other way.
I am a pretty calm and collected person, but I cried like a baby while saying my vows. Looking into my future husbands eyes, declaring this commitment in front of the most important people to us, the moment just got me. I think that the last time I cried was 1997. Brent said that was his favorite part, but I am still hoping that doesn't make it into the wedding video (wishful thinking).
And they lived happily ever after!
Next up, the honeymoon!
