Greta Christina's agnostic commitment ceremony

Corrin's B&B wedding

On the outside, our wedding probably looked pretty traditional. It's more how we got there that made it different than friends' experiences…our planning process was mostly laid back, and all about FUN. We thought of it as a big party for everyone we loved, and that took the "wedding-y" pressure off of it. We knew that we wanted lots of good dancing, lots of good food, and the people we loved, and everything else was gravy.
