Luke and I began living the sacrament of marriage on Wednesday, August 21st.
Five Fun Facts About Our Wedding:
1.) We had a small, simple ceremony. Tiny, in fact. Just our parents and the sacrament.
2.) We didn't tell anyone, so don't feel excluded if this is how you found out...this is how everyone found out. If there is such a thing as a Catholic elopement, this was it.
3.) Luke's suit (and handsome bowtie) cost more than my shirt/skirt combo.
4.) We got married on what would have been one of the presiding priest's parents' 73rd wedding anniversary, which was also on a Wednesday at approximately the same time. That priest also administered (or was present for) all of my sacraments thus far except baptism.
5.) Something old: my mom's wedding ring. Something new: the skirt/shirt. Something borrowed: my mom's slip. Something blue: my shoes.
BONUS FACT: That last picture in black and white that looks like Luke is super-romantically spinning me around is actually Luke cracking my back (which is a sign of true love, obviously).
DOUBLE BONUS (nerd) FACT: We're a Hufflepuff (me) marrying a Gryffindor (Luke), just like Tonks and Lupin (and Neville and Hannah).
No gifts, please. Prayers and well-wishes happily accepted.
