When did you get married?
We had a very small ceremony on New Year’s Eve 2005. On June 3, 2006 we had a larger ceremony and reception.
What was the ceremony like?
The ceremony was in our backyard, overlooking the valley. Our family and friends from all over came together to celebrate. We recited our vows and lit candles as part of the ceremony.
Did you have a reception after the ceremony?
We had the reception at our house.There were about 100 people that attended. Food was catered by Rico’s. We even had valet parking available.
Why did you decide to go through a ceremony?
To celebrate the beginning of our life together. Even if it’s not yet legal,we felt it was important to make the commitment to each other. We are thinking about making it legal by going to California, possibly on our anniversary.
What was your most memorable part of the ceremony?
The most memorable part of the ceremony was when I looked around and saw our families together.That was the best feeling ever.
Did you use an event planner? If so, who?
A friend of ours was our planner.
