I've been holding onto a secret for the last 1 1/2 weeks that has been pretty hard to contain...WE ELOPED.💍👫 .
On July 7th, @clockemoffett and I were married in a living room on Martha's Vineyard by a dear friend (and justice of the peace), with one witness, two adjustable rings from the hardware store, a giant diamond bangle and a cat wearing a bow tie.🐱🕴🏻Though this was 5 years in the making, the big event came together in just 5 days, from the time that I sat Charlie down on a beach in Rhode Island and "proposed," to swapping vows and crying our eyes out.😭 There were no excel spreadsheets or seating charts. Our outfits were bought the day before in town. A photographer was miraculously booked (it was the Saturday of July 4th weekend!). And a Massachusetts judge was asked nicely to wave the 3-day waiting period for a marriage license. We skipped over all the nonsense and focused on the most important thing: each other. And the universe rewarded us by conspiring in the most surprising ways to make the day more perfect and beautiful than I ever could have imagined it.
💕 "I've never been less surprised about anything in my whole life," is what one of my best friends said when I called and told her the news this weekend. I'll write more down the line about why I've always known I didn't want a traditional wedding. In the meantime, if you want more pics from our wacky, haphazard and most special of days, I've got a little taste in stories. I've been dying to share this news with you, as there was so much about our early courtship that was captured in #thewellnessprojectbook. But in this highly public, broadcasted world of ours, there was also something incredibly intimate and meaningful about letting it be our little secret for a week.🤫 Thank you all for being there—even if just in spirit—as we begin this exciting new chapter of our lives together.❤️ xoxox #Choebe4Ever 📸
And thank you @larisastinga for being our dream photographer and capturing all these amazing moments!
