Something Personal

November 8th, 2010

Yup, I eloped in the Nevada desert! Well, we eloped πŸ™‚

We’d been planning a secret Vegas wedding for the last couple of years, but upon watching online videos of couples getting married in Vegas chapels (check that out if you ever want to brighten up a humorless day!) decided that an outdoor elopement was the way to go. Thanks to Body Incredible reader Brenda for suggesting the Valley of Fire to me as a great tourist destination while in Vegas – little did she know it would end up forming the stunning background of our wedding day.

We made the news official yesterday by announcing it to our family and closest friends at Alyssa’s first birthday party. I don’t think she minded us commandeering her party!

    Your welcome Kat……I’m glad I could help out by planting a seed. I had not even thought about that people probably get married there……I guess I just never thought about it. I had heard of other places out of the city but not there. My husband and I got married in a historical building that had been turned into a restaurant. It had stone walls and was very rustic with a great atmosphere. We thought we were being creative and doing something different……… which it was. Unfortunately that building was recently torn down over 25 years later so we can never visit it again. You won’t have that ever happen to your wedding place……..ha!

    You have a beautiful family………best to you all.

    The pics are beautiful! I love the red rocks! My parents lived in the south tip of Utah years ago & I went out to stay with them about 6 months. It’s so gorgeous there. You picked a great spot to make a memory(instead of Vegas haha). My hubby and I basically did the same thing and didn’t tell anyone till after it was over. πŸ™‚ 2nd marriage for both so why re-spend the thousands of dollars? haha
