So, somehow I managed to make it this far into blogging without really mentioning our ceremony—you know, the most important part of the whole day. The truth is, we have spent a lot of time thinking about the ceremony, but it’s taken us a while to get everything figured out. Things are slowly falling into place now, so I figured it’s time to share our plans with you all!
Mr. Hammer and I are very much not religious. We understand, obviously, that religion is very important to a lot of people, including some of our guests, but frankly, it’s not for us. Thus, since our ceremony is at its core about us and our relationship, we’d be uncomfortable with a non-secular ceremony. In fact, I personally didn’t even want any prayers involved, or really any mention of God at all.
This, of course, impacted our ceremony plans from the very bare-bones framework down to the smallest details. Let’s start with the basics: Instead of getting married in a church or temple, we’re getting married here (assuming the weather cooperates).
