yup, we got married.
or, more specifically, we eloped in new york city last weekend. it was 100% perfect. wonderful, beautiful and just what we wanted. city hall makes it insanely fun to get married there, and though i thought it might cheapen the experience, the fact that we were surrounded by dozens of other eloping couples made it both exciting and romantic. it was a room filled with a whole lot of love.
and c will kill me for this, but i just love this photo. he's so very handsome and looks amazing in this suit. (seriously, look at my handsome husband!)
one of the best parts is that my parents embraced our spontaneity and, on just a few days notice, booked a flight out to new york to join us in our celebration. it made it that much more special having them there.
(also, because my mom thought of the little things like getting us flowers--for some reason, this never occurred to me--and making sure sufficient pictures were taken.)
the ceremony was quick and simple, and conducted by this no-nonsense clerk. seriously, would you mess with her? yikes!
we followed up the early morning ceremony with the traditional* post-wedding ukrainian brunch at veselka. pierogi... yum!
i couldn't be happier.
there were many more adventures in nyc, but obviously, this was the most exciting. i'll post more soon!
*not traditional at all
