~Our Renewals~ Our wedding was so perfect on the beach of Maui at the Kaanapali Beach in L...
My fiance' and I have been together for 6 years. We have 2 kids together. We always knew we would get married someday, but we just couldn't afford it before.
At the beginning of this year, Russell just kind of blurted out "Let's get married". I was thinking he was joking, because he will occassionally say things like that to me. But not this time. He was serious. He just wanted to do a quick ceremony at the Justice of the Peace, and have a party later, but when I told my mom the plan, she said no, and wanted me to do it the right way, with her help.
I'm really glad we went with the ceremony and reception. I am having lots of fun planning. Plus, I really always had my heart set on getting married in the Fall. My favorite month is October, and originally, I thought it would be really fun to get married on Halloween. It's my favorite holiday. But, I realized I didn't want to have two of my favorite things on one day. I gotta have my cake and eat it too.
So, it wasn't a spectacular surprise, with crying and hugs, type of proposal. We've been through enough of that, and off we went to go pick out my ring.
