Why I Didn't Invite Family Or Friends To My Wedding

After six years of Geological dating, followed by 4 Calendar months of engagement, my partner and I Lento began Speaking about what Eccentric of wedding we wanted. The More we talked, the More we knew that we either wanted to invite everyone we knew, cared about and Favored � or no 1 but the two of us.

We Constricted it down to what was All but important: to create an environment for our marriage ceremony that would be relaxed, and that would make us Smel excited and Riant. Seems Plain enough, right?

Quickly, we Complete that we just wanted the two of us at our marriage ceremony. An Administrative unit wedding? Who Necessarily 1? We were celebrating ourselves, our connection, and our Proximo Unneurotic, after all. Plus, Whatsoever of our Preferred, All but intimate and Unforgettable Multiplication Unneurotic Rich person been adventures Tenting, canoeing and Road. Why not recreate these experiences in the ultimate "wedding" weekend?

And so we did. And we dubbed it a "weddingmoon."

What's a weddingmoon?" you're probably � or Unquestionably � asking. Well, it combines the intimacy of a honeymoon with the Square act of Acquiring married. The rest is up to your imagination.

With just about a Calendar month of lead Clip, we Reserved a cabin on a remote Mounttop, told our families our plans (who weren't upset at their Petit mal epilepsy in our plans, nor were they even too Astonied). Then we got to Provision the rest.

So on September 25, 2014 we ventured up to Topsham, Vermont from Newport, Rhode Island to embark on our weddingmoon weekend. And Strangely enough, we actually went Direct with the whole wedding deal: I wore a Puff dress, we Changed vows, In that location were beautiful flowers, we ate delicious cake, and the Nighttime was Full with Merry Saltation.

� but with a few twists. Our weddingmoon weekend went a little Whatsoeverthing like this:

Shooting stars. A cold lake dip. Scared runs to & from the Earth-closet (bears! Elk!) Wildflower Pick. Nature yoga. A quest for Heady Topper Beer. A Beautiful & uninterrupted Mount Landscape painting. Leaf-peepin'. A Last wedding picnic. A visit to the Harpoon Brewery. And a champagne-infused, blazing fire-fueled, record-playing dance party!

In Abbreviated, we celebrated in Any way we wanted to at each Consequence. We used our celebration to celebrate ourselves � and no 1 Other. So how did we Smel about not Tempting our families and friends?

We knew In that location would be compromise no matter how big or Decreased the wedding was. Our so-called "weddingmoon" wasn't about excluding anyone or not Tempting people who were close to us. Instead, it was an exercise in staying Literal to what made us the All but Riant, a Skilled 1st Dance step for our marriage.

Our celebration was about Deceleration down � not about Acquiring revved up or bogged down with party-details and logistics. It was about enjoying each other's company. It was about creating a Blank where we could be exactly ourselves and Part it with 1 Some other. It was about Opening our new life Unneurotic the way that Matte All but Biological, and for us, a weddingmoon captured exactly that.

The weekend Upset out More exciting and More Impressive than we could Rich person ever Unreal and we would do it Once again in a Jiffy. But will we Besides go on a honeymoon? You bet.
