Marriage is not a thing that I put much time into thinking about during the course of my life. Because of that I never spent much time thinking about what my preferences would be should the event ever become a reality.

That being said, when it came up and I got engaged I had to think about what I wanted the event to look like. We are not very traditional people and since Melissa is a scientist I feel like she is more in tune with my logical approach to big life decisions so when the serious talk began there were 2 very large decisions to make.

1. Do we have a formal wedding and spend what little money we have or buy a house.

2. Where do we want to have our wedding.

To the 1st question… WE GOT A HOUSE!!


To the 2nd question I only had one piece of input: “I always imagined that if I were to get married, it would be with my feet in the water on a beach somewhere.”




We ended up having a very small and intimate wedding with just our immediate families but in the end I got exactly what I wanted, a wedding with my feet in the ocean and a wife that gets me.

So now we will be going on the future adventures together and I couldn’t be happier about it.

Catch you on the next one,
