I’m lazy, but I’m also very efficient so I ultimately have more time to be lazy.
I got engaged December 4, 2016. Crosby is not only as handsome as he is sweet, he also runs with my whims.
I was never the girl that dreamed about her wedding from age five. We also live in San Diego, one of the most expensive cities in America, so getting married cheap was super important to me.
Being the efficient [lazy] woman that I am, I found this dress on Amazon for about $60, and absolutely loved it.
I did the whole wedding dress shopping experience with my best friend Kim at The Dress Theory in Mission Hills. We had a blast!
If money was no problem, this dress would have been the one; but I couldn’t bring myself to spend almost $4000 on something I would wear once.
The more planning I did, the more panicked I got. Weddings are too expensive, our families too scattered, and my mind too indecisive.
So we made it simple.
The day after I got back into town from the Las Vegas Spartan Race, we scheduled Pink Feather Photography to take pre-elopement pictures because we couldn’t get an appointment at the courthouse to get married until the next morning at 8:00 – and who wants to wake up early enough to look glamorous for an 8:00 appointment?!
Brianna did my gorgeous makeup and while on our way to get my hair done at 2:30pm, I called the courthouse just to see if there were any last-minute openings. They said a 4:00pm spot had just opened up and it was ours if we wanted! I messaged Sara and she rushed down to the courthouse to be there to take our elopement pictures.
Everything fell right into place.
It was gloriously easy and intimate and fun! We left the courthouse and headed to Sunset Cliffs in Ocean Beach.
Oh and did I mention we love our dogs?
Crosby and I first met at Dog Beach, so we credit them with bringing us together: Niko, Byron, and Peggy.
It was the perfect day.
