Gettin’ Hitched!

May 9, 2015

Ian and I are getting married exactly two weeks from today. It’s hard to even believe it’s happening in a lot of ways. I was never someone who dreamt of getting married or needed a ring to feel the relationship was legit. Ian had already been married and didn’t feel the need to rush down the aisle again. We both questioned the difference a ceremony and some words would make. But then we started talking about it a couple of years ago and the more we talked, the more we both realized that getting up in front of our family and closest friends and saying those words had somehow become important.

So we’re doing it! I’m still a bit of an anti-bride, so it won’t be a tradition heavy event (not that there’s anything wrong with that!) We’re heading to one of our favourite spots – Niagara on the Lake – for a quick waterfront ceremony in the gazebo from the Stephen King movie The Dead Zone. Afterwards we’ll go to one of our favourite places to eat in NOTL for a completely indulgent brunch, a Spiderman topped wedding cake and Niagara fudge. There’s even a rumour (started by Ian of course) of an ice cream run in the village after the reception. It’s been so much fun to plan and nothing like the stress filled experience so many people warned me about.

It’s been a long road for us. We’ve definitely had our share of bad times to go along with the great. There were plenty of moments of doubt. But when I look back, I wouldn’t change any of it. We’ve been tested and come out the other side a little bit wiser and hell of a lot stronger. So yes, acknowledging our commitment to each other in a public way became very important to us. And after all the hooplah is said and done, we’ll still be us. This is not the start of our journey together but merely another stop on the road. One we’re happy to be celebrating with all the people we love and who have supported and been there for us over the past (almost) decade.
