We did it!
Yep, it’s true! Today I became Alicia Noelle Leitner.
We had a small private ceremony with just us, Birdy, and a few close friends. It was so lovely. I know some people probably will feel slighted that they were not invited to the ceremony, but honestly, we wanted to keep it very small and intimate, so I hope people respect that.
We said our vows to each other, and I cried, of course. *laughs* I just couldn’t help myself!
Our reception was also really fun. We had music by our favorite live singer, Wolfie Starfire! Oh, she put on a great show for us! Lots of Disney song requests from us and our guests, so I think she really had a fun time, too!
Right now we’re resting a bit and having some food. Later tonight, Jeremiah and I will be jetting off to our honeymoon! He has not told me exactly where we are going yet, so I’m very very excited to get to see it!
Next blog post will be from our honeymoon!
So I haven’t had a chance to update lately because we’ve been so so busy! But I thought I’d answer the biggest question I got after the last blog post.
When is the wedding?!
Well…here’s the thing. I don’t know if we’ll do the big wedding extravaganza. I’ve done that before and while it was lovely, I’m a much different person than I was in 2011. Neither of us feel the need to have this big massive thing. In my head, it’s just the 3 of us (Birdy is included, of course!) doing a private little ceremony, maybe with just family in attendance. I do want a wedding dress, but I picture myself in something boho and/or vintage styled. Maybe one of these days, I’ll do a live stream and go dress shopping! But I couldn’t buy anything because Michael does watch my streams, and I’d hate to ruin the surprise. Some traditions MUST be upheld, of course!
I do think that I want a party to celebrate later, though. Nothing massive, just friends and family and music and dancing. Lots of fun!
But other than there being no real news on the wedding front… That’s about all I’ve got. We are all happy when we can spend time together. Trying to balance our time has been a bit of an issue, but we’re definitely working on it.
I hope everyone has had a great February! I really am going to try to update this blog more with our adventures, but that whole balance thing I was talking about kinda makes me push some things to the side. If only there were an extra couple of hours in the day! Someone get to work on that, okay??
