I loved looking at the wedding pictures some of you posted. My hubby and I are pretty outdoorsy and big in to hiking, so we decided to get married on top of a mountain in CO. It was the two of us, our Minister, his brother and my brother in attendance. We all hiked up and had a what dh and I thought was our perfect ceremony. Where were you married? In a church, outside, a court house, at home, on the water, where? I love these stories.
The whole thing was under $6,000 and that's including EVERYTHING from getting my nails done to everyone's attire to the catering, the venue, the officiant, the decorations, the table linens, the cake. All of it
We were married in a cathedral in the town that my DH and I went to college (which is where we met).
The Cathedral of Saint John the Evangelist is a historic Roman Catholic cathedral. It was the first church in the Lafayette, Louisiana and was founded in 1821 and completed in 1916 in the Romanesque Revival style.
We are very spiritual and religious, so it was important for us to be married in a church. Also, the history and architecture was important to us because of our careers (I have a master's degree in architecture and my DH has a bachelor's in civil engineering)
