Hair and makeup done by friends. I was so in love.Ceremony set up done by friends and myself in the morning. The weather was great, which was lucky as we had no backup plan.Obi Wan kept a lookout for birds the whole time. He didn’t see the love birds right behind him. (Sorry, that is terrible.)The getaway vehicle arrived after the kissing part.We got lots of honks on the drive home.
It started innocently enough. We skied to a cabin outside of town. We drove a couple of hours, strapped on our skis and backpacks, and followed the signs.We arrived at the cabin with the sun shining brightly.Inside, there was a fire still smoldering from the people that had left before we arrived. It gave us a very welcoming feeling.Dropping our packs, we headed back out.
There was even a wood fired sauna!Obligatory wood burning stove shot.Why wouldn’t we have smores?
We built a fire, made dinner, and had some wine. At some point, I went to put another log on the fire. I noticed this. Admittedly, I was a little tipsy and slightly confused. When I opened it, I found a ring. I put it on and did not disappear, so I was snapped back to reality. We were going to get married. The next day, we celebrated by playing outside some more.
We are not the type to waste time, so the following day, we submitted an application for marriage. A week or so later, we headed to the courthouse.It was after this adventure that we headed up to Hatcher Pass.
