I love the quote: “I want a Marriage more beautiful than my wedding.” This is the statement that many of us should strive for. My wedding was held in a small church on the westside of Chicago. About 100 people were in attendance at my ceremony only wedding. My husband and I were 22 at the time and for the most part paid for all the items and attire. What we cared about the most was saying I-Do. I am happily married and will be celebrating 5 years September 26th. What a blessing!
