    Hi ladies!

    Just wanted to share, since we're keeping it quiet from our friends that we went to city hall this morning and got legally married!

    My 97 yr old grandfather and my best friend were our witnesses.

    Now just 2 more months until the 'real' big day!!

            OMG!! Congrats!!!!!

            We did the same thing, except it wasn't kept quiet, thanks to my large Italian family. I got engaged 1/16/10 and we were legally married 1/23/10...it hadn't even officially been a WEEK!!!

            We found out 3 days after he asked me that my grandfather had maybe days to live. Since I grew up in his house, we wanted to make sure he was a part of our wedding. We knew we wanted to do a DW from the beginning, and that he wouldn't be able to make it there, but since we needed to have a legal wedding in the States we figured he could make it to that. Didn't realize it would be so soon!!! All I did was call my dad and everything else happened in less than 24 hours. I even had to sit in front of a Judge to get my 72 hour notice waiver for a marriage license. We got bands made that night and the next day showed up at my grandparents house. I expected 5 people. Turns out 50 showed up!!! They had decorated the entire house like a wedding, complete with white covers and bows on the chairs. I had a tiered wedding cake (cannoli-filled!), music, even an aisle runner!! I couldn't stop crying after seeing how much everyone wanted to be a part of our day. It was truly amazing...and the best part was that my grandfather was one of my witnesses and he (barely) signed the marriage license. What a touching moment...

            I'm soooo glad you got to have your grandfather there. I know he was honored!!!!

            Congratualtions again!! Our DW is May 24, 2010...best wishes on your new life together!! Don't worry! We won't tell anyone
