Maure' & Jake's Vow Renewal PJ-DCL wedding on CC-2013-Wedding colors and other things

Well, after many months lurking on this site, I have finally decided to start my own PJ...YAY!!! This is all new to me, and I have never done anything like this before, so hope it all goes well, and at least somebody out there is entertained.



HOW WE MET


Jake and I actually met through my mother and his sister. My mother and his sister both go roller skating at the same place on Wednesday nights, and somehow started talking about us and how we should meet. Well, since my mother doesn't have the best track record when it comes to setting me up with people, she told me about Jake, but I chose to ignore her. I had given my phone # to my mother to give to Jake's sister to give to Jake. (Sound like junior high?? ) Well, he didn't call me, and I decided that if he couldn't even call me on the phone, how would we ever talk in person??! Finally I told my mother to just get me his # and I would initiate the calling if I so felt the urge..Which, by the way, I did not, at least until the jerk I was dating at the time stood me up, and in a fit of rage at all men, I decided to call this Jake person, and see if he would also blow me off and fit into my definition of what I thought all men were at that point. (JERKS!!!) So, I called. He did not answer so I left a voicemail, totally convinced that he would NEVER call me back. BUT, about 2 hours later, he did....and the rest, as they say, is history. We talked for about 2 hours on the phone, arranged to meet in person the next day, and have been together ever since. It was pretty automatic, like we just knew we were right for each other. That was on April 29, 2006. In July of 2007 we were engaged, and then we got married on September 24, 2007.

Here is a picture of us


I hope that works.....

Originally we were going to wait and do the real wedding at Disney World. That has always been my dream, Disney is my favorite place!! Jake likes Disney, but is definitely not the fanatic that I am. Well, we were living together, and I knew my parents really weren't into it, so we decided to make it official and then go ahead and do a VR at Disney. I am going to post this and make sure that my pic came up.

Ok, I don't know why those middle pics didn't post, but I guess you get the idea....Here is a picture of both my rings together...

Ok, ok, enough with the rings.... I guess an obvious question would be why are we doing a VR so soon? Well, when we got married in September, we just went to the JP, nobody else was there, and we didn't have a reception or anything. I really wanted to chance to have my dream wedding where I have a wedding dress, bridesmaids, my dad walk me down the aisle, and all of our friends and family there. I know some people don't get it, but I know all of you lovely disbrides will understand where I am coming from... I guess you can just call us the backwards couple... We got married first, but now are doing all the things you do before you get married, like we just had "engagement pictures" taken, I am going to have a wedding shower, etc. Well, I am going to go try and post a link to this in my signature. Next time I will get into all of my wedding plans.....

Hello there! Welcome to this part of the boards - you'll love it here Your rings are lovely, very pretty

Theres nothing wrong with the way round you're doing things, at least you'll have the nerves out of the way and you can just concentrate on having an amazing time We originally were going to do something similar - just get married here in the UK at a register office with just the parents and then do all the pretty stuff in disney a week later in the form of a vow renewal. My planner told me that its more common than people think and that they deal with that situation all the time We've now switched things around so that our actual wedding is going to be in disney and we're doing something special when we get home - still got to figure out what though Sometimes I wonder whether we've made the right decision but I'm the most indesicive person in the world so its probably just me over stressing!!

I can't wait to hear more about your plans

I just had a thought for you. What if your DF's Step-mother did a reading and then the mothers did the candles?

Thank you everyone!! You girls are so sweet!! I had this irrational fear that I was going to do a PJ and nobody would read it.... I promise I will get to the planning very soon!! OH, and can someone tell me how to multiquote?? I think that might come in handy on here...

Beautiful rings! I love the leafy filigree (is that the right term?) on the band part.

This might be a dumb question, but how do you pronounce your name? I've never seen it before.

Thank you so much!! My name is actually french, and the easiest way to tell people how to say it, is to say that it rhymes with hooray....
Thanks for the info on multi quoting-as you can see, I am trying it out right now!!!
