Alan and I went to the courthouse and secretly got married! We hadn't planned for it to happen that way but decided to do it for health insurance reasons (so romantic). Since I wanted our actual wedding to still feel like our big day, we tried to act as nonchalant as we could about it. Even if I did decide to wear a white dress.
In a truly classy move, we got our marriage license and certificate in one visit using the county's new Express Marriage Ceremony Service -- because nothing says commitment like the word express. Alan kept calling it our drive-thru wedding :).
Our friend Rob came along and asked if I wanted him to take pictures. In my head, I kept thinking, I don't need pictures of us signing papers, but all of a sudden Mike (the nice clerk who married us) asked if we were ready. (Clearly, per my face, I was not).
Alan said I do, I said I do and then we kissed. We were married!
p.s. Does this count as eloping?
