My awesome husband, Nick, and I were married on October 31, 2009. We didn't plan to get married on Halloween. We were at his mother's house with the whole family. We ate dinner, took all the kids trick-or-treating and then had a belated birthday party for Nick. When it was over, we were like "What else can we do tonight?" and since Nick's stepfather is a minister, we decided to go on and get married right then. We all headed out to the back yard and got married in front of the pond in the rain. I wore the dress his mother wore when she got married. It was better than the beautiful wedding in the church with the purple flowers... because Nick was looking in my eyes. I knew he truly loved me and would never hurt me. And I was happy.
