Wedding Feedback #3

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I was insecure about how the wedding would turn out. For the past seven months, I've been an advocate for reclaiming the real purpose of a wedding by refusing to kowtow to the pressures of the Wedding Industrial Complex. We purposefully stuck to a very strict budget in order to keep our focus on what mattered.

We stripped away professional caterers, florists, dress designers, photographers, DJs, and wedding planners and tried to make the event special with sincerity rather than money.

I suppose the most important thing is for Matt and I to enjoy our wedding. But our friends and family are a close second. It's validating to hear positive feedback from them. Here's the latest from our friend Patrick:

"Thank you so much!!!!! Not only was it a fantastic vacation but it was the most beautiful wedding I've ever seen. Your family is also amazing and it was great to be around 80 accepting, laidback, nonjudgmental people."

[Editor's Note: I recognize that the people who didn't enjoy the wedding will likely never e-mail us with their negative feedback. Argh!]
