If you didn't know, Matt and I eloped. We didn't want a big wedding. My parents offered money for us to go to Hawaii and we took it. We got engaged December 13, 2004 and were married exactly a month later...January 13, 2005.
So over Christmas break we decided that we were going to take my dress, etc, to Hawaii and have all the pictures made there. Looks like we got married there but we didn't...we just faked a wedding. We booked our trip for January 21 - 27, 2005 and knew we had to get married sometime before that. So on a random Thursday we said..."wanna get married today?" So, we called our then pastor (which happens to Matt's uncle) and asked him to meet us at the church. And, we got married Thursday, January 13, 2005.
Our parents sort of weren't invited...and they are still bitter...sorry Mom. Here are some of our pictures from Hawaii...we look like babies!
