Other Cool Stuff We Should Know About
We decided to go to Cato’s following our quick ten-minute ceremony at the Alameda County Clerks office. It was brilliant. We showed up around 1:30 on a Wednesday afternoon, the lunch crowd had left so we basically had the run of the place. I had talked to the manager a couple weeks before hand to let him know we’d be coming in with a pretty big crowd—there were thirty of us—and he was excited to have us. We had some friends and neighbors pop in and grab a beer with us and others that stayed and hung out all afternoon.
Favorite Thing About the Wedding
We were surrounded by our favorite people; there wasn’t a limo we had to catch or family members being nervous about running into an old aunt. There was no three-hour getting ready session. It was just really easy and simple and honest.
