A few thoughts on our wedding

A week ago tomorrow, Dave and I got married in Las Vegas, Nevada in a short and sweet ceremony surrounded by close family and friends. After much discussion with our parents and family members, we decided to skip the traditional wedding and get married at the La Bella Chapel inside the LVH (formerly known as the Las Vegas Hilton). The LVH is special to us as we met there in 2007.
 Me on my wedding day!

Taking the edge off before walking down the aisle. 
I was stressing out because my dress was loose. I have lost 15 lbs since I bought it!
I am so happy that we did what we wanted to do. Our wedding was very low key. Our wedding was casual. Short. Sweet. To the point. Our wedding was perfect for us. We wanted our day to be as drama free as possible and not send us into our "new" life in debt. That is exactly what we did.

 {My bouquet was perfect. Simple and sweet.}

We invited our friends and family to the Ale House in Vegas after the ceremony for food and drink and to celebrate with us. Again, very casual and reasonably priced.  We will have a real reception in a couple of months in Delaware for all of our family and friends. We all had a great time and I have no regrets from our special day. I would do it over and over again this way.
