Surprise!!!!! Toblerone and I are married!!! I know, you’re shocked…and wondering why I didn’t tell you, right? Well, this wedding we wanted to be simple and private. Something shared with family.
We always knew we would have two weddings. One in Germany and one in America, but weren’t sure on the specifics until recently. There are typically two parts to a German wedding. A civil service is the town hall ceremony so the government can recognize the wedding. The other part is the church wedding so it is recognized by the church. We only did the civil service option at the town hall and plan a bigger wedding in the US in 2014. (Something to look forward too!)
So for the town hall wedding, I didn’t need a poofy white dress or any of that but we wanted to look nice, of course. My mom flew in as the representative of everyone back home which was really great!
I ended up, without even realizing it, having my something old, new, borrowed, and blue.
Old – my dress (worn once for an event in CA on business)
New – my black jacket
Borrowed – the black clutch
Blue – my lucky underwear!!
Along with that I had my mom bring little trinkets of my immediate family to carry with me in my clutch. I had Toblerone’s grandmothers bring photos of his Opi’s as well.
The ceremony was a quick 15 minutes held by the mayor of our town. He said most of it in German but said the vows in both languages which was nice…just so I knew what I was agreeing to! Afterwards he gave us a new umbrella for the good and bad days as well as a bouquet of flowers.
Afterwards, we all went to our favorite restaurant on the Lake of Konstanz and followed it up with pictures at my favorite pink church across the street. It was a great day all in all.
Do I feel different? Not really. I have to keep calling Toblerone “husband” to make it sound more real! But since we are married I noticed we have a lot more respect towards each other. We aren’t so quick to get angry and we take more care of the other! However, we are only 1.5 weeks in…lol. I’m enjoying it while it lasts!!
Now we have to focus on planning our big American wedding!! Getting excited all over again!!
Until next time, Readers!!!! Xoxoxoxo
