We don't want to wait fifteen years to have kids. So, that has left us looking for alternatives. Hmmmmmmm... Where could we possibly host a wedding for our family and friends, but not completely blow every dollar we have and put ourselves in $major debt$?
My first thought was the back yard. Kim has all but vetoed that idea. As much as we love the big tree and everything, she just doesn't see it as practical and beautiful (insert sad face) for a ceremony.
I was at a loss... I really want to get married in Maryland now that it is legal here, but all of the historical buildings cost $1000+ for a few hours on the weekend and have a bunch of crazy restrictions about food and alcohol service, insurance, permitting and licensing... They kind of kill the joy of wanting to do anything celebratory!
A view of Fort Washington down by the water. I took this with my iPhone on a cool/cheap app called "Photosynth."
I definitely recommend it when you're taking touristy pics or setting up a "photo tour" for something.
One details down a million to go! I am still lobbying for the reception at our house. We aren't planning to have many guests and I think we could make it warm, inviting and fun for our friends and family. Am I crazy?
