ImageWell, the wedding day has come and gone. It was an absolutely wonderful day. We had a small ceremony in the morning with our family and close friends, we had about 30 people at the wedding all together. It was held in my in-laws living room and my father married Mr Woodpecker and myself.

After the morning ceremony there was a lot of hanging around and chatting and drinking mimosas and eating finger foods. It was a lot of fun.

After the ceremony and mini-reception Mr Woodpecker and I received the BEST possible gift. I fear to tell you because a quick internet search would then completely remove all anonymity. So I’m going to keep it silent, but suffice to say it was so awesome we were featured on two local news stations and many national news organizations. That’s how awesome it was.

We then spent the next week on a cruise down Baja (on Carnival, I know we’re risk takers!) It was a wonderful honeymoon.

It feels so surreal to be married finally to the most amazing man I’ve ever met. I never could have imagined I’d be this happy.

Our total damage for the wedding + honeymoon? A bit over $7,000. And that was doing things exceptionally inexpensive.
