  1. Miss Conduct, I would so buy that book. People keep asking if I’m bummed that I missed out on the big wedding spectacle, and I’m like, “Are you kidding me? That’s the best part!”

  2. Mazal tov! For the first six months after our wedding, we kept talking about how happy we were to NOT be planning a wedding anymore…I already knew it, but you are a smart woman. :)

  3. Congratulations kate! Welcome to the club :)

    Miss conduct I am with you too!

    We skipped the whole wedding extravaganza as well, and i also did NOT wear white.

  4. Awesome news! Congratulations, Kate & Al.

    And awakeintheworld, I’ve been married for over 2 years, and seeing bridal magazines can still make me delighted that we are no longer planning a wedding. There were things that I loved about our ceremony and party, but the planning, oy. It brings out the crazy in all family involved.

  5. Congratulations!! :D

    And yay for skipping out on The Huge, Expensive Wedding! We did the same. :) I missed having The White Dress until I got to try one on later, and thus my itch was scratched. Other than that, no regrets.

    May you and Al have many happy years together!

  6. So excited to see this today. What a wonderful way to mark the holidays! Congratulations to you both, and may you have many years of happiness together.

  7. De-lurking to add my congratulations. Many happy years together, and – to let me quote the registrar at my wedding – “Never miss out on an opportunity to have a good fight.”

  8. Oh my goodness, yay! CONGRATS! I am so happy for you! I hope you have more than a lifetime of happiness together!

  9. Congratulations Kate! I thought that was the deal from Twitter, but I wasn’t sure that it was an elopement, or if I was just out of the loop.

    I wish you both all the happiness in the world :)

  10. Hi eveyone, this is Al’s mom, Kate’s new mom-in-law.
    I was so happy to be at the wedding, to share in their big day mean’t a lot to me.
    I have secretly wished that Al would marry Kate, as I loved her the first time we met.
    My wish came true….and now I have a beautiful new
    daughter…..i am so blessed!
    Al and Kate…..wishing you all the happiness that two people can bring to each other.
    love, mom

  11. I wish you both joy! Ed and I grow closer and happier every year, and I wish the same for you and Al. Plus, you apparently have the SECOND best MIL ever – mine is the best ever!

    Eloping is SO cool. I actually enjoyed the big wedding thing a lot, but then I used to like planning 500 person conventions, which is not far off.

    We actually took a couple of hours off work and had a JP courthouse marriage in March before our big church wedding in June. Just us and two of our best friends. Ed had just qualified for health insurance, so we got hitched so I could be on it.

  12. May marriage agree with you as much as it has agreed with me. May your love be as amazing as mine has been. May your families be as accepting of both of you and each other as ours have been. May the rough years pass you by, and may you cut straight to the good stuff!

    Much love!

  13. Congratulations, Kate and Al! You both look appropriately ridiculously happy.

    We didn’t elope, but we too have a late December anniversary. It’s a good time of year. :-)
