South Puget Sound
It's official. I'm now Mrs. Jenn. I'm still getting used to saying it.

Gene and I were married on Labor Day in a beautiful setting overlooking Puget Sound. There had been torrential rain the entire weekend. It even sprinkled a few times before the ceremony. We didn't sweat it and were rewarded with a beautiful ray of sunshine that shone on us as we began our vows. Everything went beautifully and I'm honored to have such a caring and loving husband.

Getting ready to go meet my groom

The newlyweds

My fav pic from the whole wedding: my brother congratulating me (makes me tear up every time I see it)

Our wedding favors

We honeymooned in Hawaii (Wailua on Oahu, and yes, it was the sticks!), where we saw lots & lots & lots of sea turtles, snorkeled, slept, read books, hung out on our virtually private beach, and just enjoyed checking out.

If you're on facebook, you can see more of my pics there. I posted the link in the BYC group.

Our entire wedding, which had about 80 guests, and our weeklong honeymoon in Hawaii cost less than $2000, all paid 100% in cash.
Congratulations! You look so beautiful! The honeymoon sounds fabulous as well! I love your idea of wedding favors, how sweet. I wish you many, many years of happiness!
