Ready for a surprise?
Why? We eloped because we feared the very real possibility that I would become the Bridezilla of everyone’s nightmares. His parents are moving to Florida at the end of the year and my parents don’t like to travel. I feared the actuality of tons of people watching me walk anywhere let alone down the aisle. We eloped because we saw our engaged friends go a little crazy with all of the details of a wedding. We didn’t want that much stress. We just wanted to be married to each other.
Where? Bernice Gardens in Little Rock
Now for some minor details:
I made red paper roses for the bouquet and boutonniere using an online tutorial.
I knitted my garter belt.
I couldn’t decide on a veil and even attempted to knit a veil.
My mom saved the day by bringing a veil with crystals.
Bing, Bang, Boom — We were married with minimal fuss and only one minor Bridezilla moment (which thankfully only my parents saw). I don’t think we have ever smiled or laughed that much in a very long time.
