The weddings that weren't

I'm going to a wedding this weekend and I'm feeling just a little jealous.

It's been over two months since my wedding. It was everything my partner and I could have asked for, in four hours of pure awesome. The professional photos are stunning and capture how was very "us" it was. The wedding I'm going to this weekend is also very representative of the bride and groom — a guitar-themed, tequila-shooting wedding.

But a guitar-themed, tequila-shooting wedding is definitely not me… so why am I having wedding envy?

You need to do over your proposal

I avoid talking about the "proposal" part of our life because a lot of people don't understand it. We are in the age of "ommggg look at this YouTube flash dance wedding proposal that went viral and is now being featured on Good Morning America!" Our story just doesn't fit into that American narrative. It was simple, I was a part of the conversation, and it was nothing big and romantic.
