I'm going to ask you to go HERE and vote for my brother-in-law Jay and his fiance Rachel to win a wedding photography package.
As I write this, I'm watching one of my favorite TV shows, Oxygen's Snapped. I love me some Snapped. Every episode you already know some wife is going to kill her husband some how. Perfect backdrop for impending nuptials, no?
I'm a little cynical about marriage. My father has been married 3 times. And I've honestly lost count of how many other of his engagements have not come to fruition. My mother has been married twice, but we're not aloud to talk about the second time. All the unions of which I was a bridesmaid are no longer. Currently, my aunt and uncle are in the midst of an ugly divorce. It's horrible to watch it destroy their family and the ramifications on the rest of us.
But oh, oh, oh - young love and what is more fun than a summer wedding? (A Snapped marathon?)
My mother-in-law is over the moon. Erik and I eloped and I think she was somewhat disappointed we didn't have a big wedding. So vote for the kids. They have a 33% chance of winning and a 50% chance of not getting divorced. Hooray!
Vote for Jay and Rachel!
