Two years ago today, Stu and I were married in a double ceremony with Stu's best friend and his new bride. We had planned to marry in Cabo but couldn't work out the details (we had already planned the vacation and invited our soon-to-be newly married friends along).
They invited us to join them and get married at the same time...it was planned as a surprise to all our friends who were going to be there. It also meant we could invite a few of our more local family...we ended up with my son and youngest daughter as well as Stu's oldest daughter and stepdaughter (and all the assorted kids).
We had a wonderful time except for a couple of the usual buggaboos....I was sick with what we thought was a bad cold (ended up one step away from pneumonia, got meds before the honeymoon in Cabo, fortunately) and Stu had a black eye from a wrench that dropped while he was on his back working overhead on the brakes on the motorhome of a good RVing friend who was there for the wedding). Always makes things interesting...LOL!
The wedding was amazing...our friends all dressed up and us in Hawaiian shirts and khaki pants (as we had planned for in Cabo). Here are some pics from the day...
You can see all the photos (not in any order and probably with duplicates...LOL!) HERE.
For those that don't know our story, Stu and I met in July 2008 at the Escapade in Gillette, WY. We were both widowed, Stu very unexpectedly and me after a two year battle with cancer. We immediately clicked and found we had much in common (RVs, full-timing, motorcycles) and also had a lot of similarities (losing our soul-mates after 19 year marriages, being the same age as the respective spouses which meant losing our spouses at the same age, having the same age difference between us & our spouses although in reverse).
We traveled together in two rigs for the rest of July and part of August until Stu went back to Maryland for the birth of our youngest grandbaby, Jesse. In September I put my rig in storage in Colorado Springs and flew out to travel with Stu (after shipping him 36 boxes of my "stuff"). We did some hectic traveling to meet and greet all our family and close friends. In 2009 we decided to get married and sell the surplus RVs (yup, we had two of them).
The rest, as they say, is history!
Till next time - keep on rollin',
Donna and Stu
