Hitched In Vegas!
Whao! Time Flies...
I literally remember uploading my last shot, went to work, log back on , and find that a month has passed since my last upload!
I haven't had much time to get the camera out these passed couple of months, and even though I have a shed load of shots to still upload from my most recent trip (The end of america, Japan, China and finally Scotland), I have no time to go through and upload them :(
ON A BRIGHTER NOTE!
A couple of you noticed a few uploads back that i stopped referring to my significant other as Girlfriend and Started referring to her as my Wife! Yep! We decided to get married during our trip in America! (Vegas to be precise!) We didn't really plan it but had talked about the possibility of doing it a couple of weeks before leaving.
And so, after our road trip around Arizona and up to Utah, we decided to head back to Vegas to tie the knot!
Very surreal experience! We managed to find our way to the City offices, register with the marriage license people and get the paper work we needed (to present to the minister), now all we had to do was find a place to have the ceremony. Turned out to not be so easy!
We rang a few places, but we were only able to get a spot in a few days time (we were only in Vegas for 2 days before flying to San Francisco), so this wasn't an option.
We rang another place, managed to get a spot for the next morning, and went to only be turned away for not having witnesses.
We camped out outside the 'Pop Up Wedding Chapel' at the Cosmopolitan Casino and hotel, waiting for it to open at the signed time of 3pm.... it didn't open!
Finally, I decided ot ring one more place before the day ended and we got ready for our flight out. I rang 'the Little White Wedding Chapel' (Which married various big names), and apologised for the short notice but hoped they could marry us on that day (It was 5pm).
They said 'yeah! No Problem! We're opn until 11pm, come when you like!
.... fair enough!
We went, filled out a form, they asked us if we had any witnesses.... we, again, apologised and said no.
'No Problem! This is Dave! Dave, this is Lee & Sayaka!
We walked through to the chapel, and before we got a few steps in the music started! Dum Dum Di Dum!
Within 4 minutes it was all done and we were walking out.
another couple we saw arrive shortly after us, looked stunned and said 'Was that it!? Are you married now!?'
Yep! all done. Your turn!
We went to see a show later that evening, spent our last night in Vegas and then got a flight to San Francisco early the next morning.
It was all very sudden, and with hyping ourselves up, but then having trouble at first finding a place and thinking its not going to happen, it still ended up being quite an exhausting day! lol
We do plan on a big celebration and party once we're settled in England.... Its just turning out to be difficult to settle in England! Not so easy for my wife to get a visa, so we're apart at the moment and hence why i'm working ridiculous amounts (financial requirements of visa application).
Keep fingers crossed and if all goes well we will be back together again before next summer.
So! I apologize in advance for my lack of activity. I don't think im going to get much chance to get online for the next year (Trying to hold down 2 jobs), i'll catch up when I can and thank you all for your comments to date!
