After reading about Sarah Lane's latest blog entry, I got thinking back to my wife and I's wedding. Luckily, my wife and I decided many years ahead that our wedding wouldn't not be the kind that costs $20,000.00 just to have (not mention the reception costs). If you weren't there, my wife and I were married by the Justice of the Peace (JoP as we call it). It was held at the our city hall and had made the appointment to be married at 11:30AM.
Many of our closest relatives and friends were there to witness the event, which lasted for about 30-35 minutes. Afterwards, we all walked over to Tara Asia (a trendy thai food restaurant) and had lunch (we had arranged ahead of time with the people at the restaurant to expect 30 people).
