Planning a wedding while dealing with the emotions of being a domestic abuse survivor

I have gone from being a young bride, to a survivor of domestic abuse, a divorcée, a fiancée, and now I find myself planning a wedding again. A wedding is supposed to be a happy experience. For me, this doesn't seem to be the case. With my looming nuptials I can't help but feel emotionally and physically drained. I remind myself every day that "he isn't my first husband."

Abigail & Kevin's candlelit gothic wedding in the woods

Give us some sumptuous dark decor, a lush forest ceremony bathed in candlelight, and a super gorgeous gothic couple who totally know how to put an ensemble together. Add in a few D&D and wizard touches, and we're all on this geeky-gothic train. Plus, we love any family who is down for anything as long as there's cake.
