Smile Finally it's Here!

I am so excited. After the week I had last week, we finally got some good news! The Chaplain called today and we are approved for our wedding. They schedule it for next Friday 8/16, so after a year of getting this in order we are finally getting married!

But my fiancé has explained to me that he wants me to wear a dress?? Well I actually looked in my closet today and the only dress I own is black, so looks like it's shopping this weekend!

Congrats and wow! They didn't give you much warning, eh?
Nothing wrong with a black wedding dress if you feel good and confident in it. I wore yellow to our wedding, haven't regretted it once.

Enjoy your special day and be sure to update us after the I Do's!

That is awesome. I got married in prison and we have been married now for ten years in November. Good luck in all that you do. My wife told me it doesn't matter were you marry someone...love has no boundaries or walls.

Part of why I love PTO. People who understand..
I told a family member the marriage would be at the prison and she goes to tell me "that's not what you want, you need to wait"

***Update******The wedding is tomorrow!! And thanks to the help of a wonderful friend who spent many hours shopping with me, we found the perfect dress! But it was an adventure to say the least. At one point my friend and I decided that maybe it would be a good idea if I just wore white scrubs, then my fiancé and be dressed just alike in the pictures....lol. Even he got a kick out of that.

Wishing you both an amazing union, today will be forever an amazing past - one to look back upon and remind you of everything that led you here, today.

May every Angel looking down upon this wedding be singing and dancing in love / joy.

Bless you both!

****Update****

We are married! It was a long process, but it was all worth it in the end!

It didn't start out great, as they had us down for non-contact. They tried to tell me he was not eligible for contact visits, but we've been having them for the past 2 years, so I pushed back a little and they had to go look it up. Somebody didn't pay attention when they filled out the paperwork.

But in the end it was a good ceremony. My officiant was great, so anybody in my area that ever needs one please look up Rosas Weddings on Facebook and have Kat help you out. She is a pleasure to work with.

She was up for anything as far as the ceremony as long as it was not going to cause any trouble for anyone, including playing a prank on my now husband that gave us all a good laugh including him.

We didn't get to visit today after the ceremony, but I'll see him first thing in the morning at our regular visit (and it will be contact...lol) , and by next week we should have everything changed in the system.

Now we just have to work on getting him home!!
