Today is our 3rd year anniversary and the day Amanda and I tie the knot. We’re going to need all the energy we can get so let’s start the day off with a nice breakfast.
|Once in a blue moon, Amanda managed to pack her things faster than I could.|
|A few pics of our accommodations|
|Looks like someone's trying to start another trend here|
|All packed and ready to go; back to Joshua Tree NP!|
|Chatting with some of the locals out front where we picked up our wedding cake|
|Lunch break at our favorite fast food restaurant|
|We still haven't picked a spot to have the wedding ceremony yet. Not to worry, we have all afternoon.|
|Skull Rock might not be the best place to sneak in a wedding ceremony, but neat to visit nevertheless.|
After a few hours of scoping out potential areas, we found the perfect spot. We parked the bikes and hiked a mile towards a cluster of huge boulders in the middle of the desert and began working out the final details.
I know some of you will say, “Well that’s not a real wedding; it must be ordained by the church.” True as that may be, legality wise, but to us; it was as real as it gets. Maybe somewhere down the road we’ll do the whole nine yards, but today will always be remembered as the day Amanda and I got married.
|After we exchanged vows, we had our wedding meal, but first...bubbles!|
|Every once in a while we'd check up on the bikes with our trusty monocular.|
|For our first dance, we used an iPod and shared the earphones so that we had music to dance to.|
|Then we kicked back and watched the sun go down|
|Mmmmm the cake was yummy too|
