I did get married. I married "Commoking82". We got married on August 28th, 2004 in my home town of Richland, WA. It was an awesome ceremony. He is an amazing guy we are now living in Ft. Sill, OK getting our life together.
How it started--well we talked online for about a month and then moved to phone conversations. I felt like I had found my soul mate. He was scheduled to come home from his current station in Korea on March 17th, 2004 so during those 6 months until he would be coming home and we would meet face to face, we spent the time getting to know every detail of each others lives. We had planned that he would come home and spend 2 weeks with me and my family, then I would go back to Maryland with him and meet his family for two weeks. It was great, his family was amazing. They welcomed me with open arms. The four weeks flew by. On the last night we were in Maryland, which was April 13th, we went to dinner, we were driving and the rain was pouring down. He suddenly pulled over and said to get out of the car, I was like "What the heck? What's wrong?" I got out and he held out this beautiful solitaire diamond ring and said that from the moment he met me he knew he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me. Then he asked me to marry him! I was just standing there soaking wet laughing, I was like omg omg!! Yes I will! Well then we went and ate and then we went back to his home to share the great news, of course eveyrone already knew but me. So we flew home and he got to stay 3 more days at my house with my family and then headed off to Korea. It was the hardest good bye ever, you never know when you are going to find that special person and to have to put them on a 17 hour flight back to a foreign country just pulls at your heart.
But, the next day I was so excited. I had to plan a wedding in 4 months. Crazy crazy times, thank god for friends. But, it all came together. The dress, the flowers, the tuxes, everything was amazing. It was hard for my fiance because he was so far away that he couldn't really help too much. But, it was ok, I had fun. Well, he finally flew back in on August 17th, he only had until Sept. 1st to report to Ft. Sill. So, we spent the next 2 weeks finalizing our wedding plans and picking out wedding bands--all the fun stuff. We also attended my cousins wedding on August 21st which was nice.
August 28th, 2004 finally arrived. Our wedding was scheduled for 7:00pm which meant an all day crazy time for me and my girls. But, it was all worth it when the clock hit 7 and it was time. Everything was perfect. His father is an Episcopal Minister so he was our efficient for the ceremony which made it even more special. After the ceremony we hit the golf course for a huge fun fun fun fun reception! It was a night to never forget, exactly how I imagined it.
