Introducing--Officially!--Mr. and Mrs. Butters

We did it! Last Friday, the 10th of September, Spike and I went to the courthouse here in town and got ourselves hitched. Spike got out of class early, was on his way home by 1:00, and had arrived at the courthouse with me in tow by 3:00.

Although I've (strongly) hinted at it, this is the first time I've announced it outright: Instead of flying to Oklahoma for my monthly visit in August, I came to stay. Spike and I didn't know when exactly it would happen, but we knew we wanted to get married in a simple courthouse ceremony as soon as possible. We were frustrated by a few weeks of classes that lasted until 5:00, but our day finally came.

I'm ecstatic! And here are some pictures. More words and thoughts (and maybe more pictures, too) later.

Getting ready to start the paperwork

Another military couple got married immediately before us--the groom had just graduated from basic training that afternoon.
I think I'm saying something about getting used to a new last name.
Saying our vows.
Just married!
We were very fortunate to find a photographer who could meet us at the last minute! Thanks, GJ!


  1. Best wishes to you!! You both look lovely!

  2. Congrats!!!! I love people to toss the must-get-married-and-invite-300-people events out the window and do something for just the two of you.

    Congrats again on this wonderful occasion!

    And your dress - I love it!

  3. Congratulations!! You look BEAUTIFUL!

  4. Congratulations! You look beautiful and love those no hassle weddings! :-)

  5. Congratulations! Enjoy every moment of being married:)

  6. Congratulations! You look gorgeous and I love the color of your hair, so pretty!

    Oh..and about the weather in Oklahoma, it all really depends. I'm from northern Oklahoma, almost to the Kansas line and there were many Halloweens where we were all bundled up because it was so cold. Oklahoma is so unpredictable about the weather that you just never know!

  7. Congratulations! Your pictures are beautiful. So happy for you both!
