We did it! Washington state made it legal for us to be responsible for one another; to be married. It seemed to take forever to get here but September 21st, 2013 @ 4:00pm arrived and we are now Mrs. & Mrs. Thomas. The ceremony was beautiful, the food at the reception was delicious, the drinks were flowing and the DJ kept folks dancing all night long (I will shout out all my vendors in another post). I can’t say that things went off without a hitch (a very drunk Groomette and the wedding cake being involved in an auto accident) but for Tomi & I, our day was pure magic.
I was very happy to have my parents there. My mom didn’t get to be involved with the planning because of our distance but she got to be there to help me get ready on my big day. My daddy got to give me away. Just before he made the hand-off, he leaned in to Tomi and said “She’s your problem now.” I love my dad…LOL!
One of our older girls, Michelle, was able to fly in from California to be here. Also, our two youngest girls were bridesmaids. Some of my cousins, aunts and an uncle made it over from the west side of the mountains to share the love.
