|Just Married & Enjoying Our Cake!|
When we got engaged in the fall of 1998, we had intended to wait until the summer of 2000 to get married. By then, I would be finished university. However, one Sunday in March we got to talking and we decided that we didn't want to wait any longer and why didn't we just have a small wedding that summer? When I told my parents that we were planning to be married in July (just 3 months away) they were very excited. Many parents would be less than impressed with the lack of notice, but our parents were all thrilled. And so, thus began our whirlwind engagement.

Angus and I are both of Scottish descent, so we knew we wanted of lot of highland touches. In addition to those, I was aiming for a whimsical, eccentric garden party atmosphere. With lots of butterflies. And kilt clad Scotsmen. (Hey, it was my wedding!)

I've had a wonderful time sharing these three special weddings with you. Whenever I am asked for advice on weddings, I offer this; don't get so caught up in the wedding that you forget about the marriage. Your wedding lasts for one day, but your marriage will (hopefully) last forever. Try very hard to consider the feelings of all those who are part of your day as they will be part of your life long after the cake is cut and the bouquet is thrown. Remember that person who is nagging and annoying now loves you very much and is actually just desperately trying to ensure that your day is perfect.
Have a wonderful weekend!
