Happy Happy Joy Joy!

We got hitched!

I’d always wanted to elope, so elope I did. Troy and I tied the knot on Saturday in a short and sweet civil ceremony at the Waterloo Park. I hope my family won’t hate me for this (I called home this morning to let my family know about the news, but nobody answered, so I emailed one of my brothers instead — no reply so far). So now I am part of a self-proclaimed crazy family. Both Troy’s mother’s side of the family and his father’s side of the family claim they are crazy. I guess that’s the reason everyone warmly welcomes me into the family. Because I’m crazy, too! :)

For a wedding that was planned in only two weeks, it went pretty awesomely. More pictures and gory details are coming up.

  9. Congratulations! I’m glad to hear of the happiness :D Good luck and yes please, more details soon. I agree, eloping can be fun, my husband and I did it last year, although we brought some of the family with us, so does it count as eloping? hehe Congrats again!

    I also was saw it coming and was hoping for a long time. You two are a fantastic pair with a great story to tell for ages to come. And more stories will evolve I am sure.
    Thank you for letting me be a part of the festivities, and watch the great day first hand. :)
