Tying the Knot in a Meaningful and Memorable Way (Without Losing Our Savings or Sanity)

Article in the Newspaper

The Denver Post published a short first-person essay about our wedding experience. I had to write the piece before I was actually married, so I am completely relieved that it went according to plan. Here's a segment:

"A popular wedding website advised: 'The more guests feel involved with your wedding, the more likely they will have a great time.' So what was the website's advice for helping guests feel more involved? Creating a detailed ceremony program.

We took the advice more literally. We asked our friends and family to serve as the photographers, caterers, hair stylists, DJs, bartenders, officiant, traffic directors and videographers.

Everyone took a small piece, and when we put it all together, it made a whole. Everything about the wedding was an expression of our love and our relationship. Not only did we feel connected to every aspect of the wedding because we did it ourselves, we also felt connected to everyone who partook in the important occasion. Who could be disappointed with that?"

I am so, so glad that we weren't, in fact, disappointed. Honestly, our friends and family volunteered in ways that completely superseded our expectations. Hooray!
