Weddings around the World
11 weddings in 11 countries. Wow!
- United States
- Republic of Srpska
- Republic of San Marino
- Vatican City
After our first marriage in May, and then a spontaneous, “Let’s get married again” ceremony on our honeymoon in Puerto Vallarta, we were hooked! We decided we wanted to get married everywhere, all over the world.
That’s when Devin cooked up his “100 Weddings” plan: 100 weddings in 100 countries.
So we ran of to Europe last month and got married 9 times in 9 countries in 25 days.
We just completed our 10th and 11th weddings on Sunday, October 5, in Rome (Piazza Navona) and Vatican City (the smallest country in the world) before heading home early morning on Monday.
This experience has been way beyond anything either of us imagined.
I thought we’d sneak into churches, grab a bystander as a witness, and exchange our vows. We had a few micro weddings like that (in hotel lobbies, mountain tops, historical bridges), but we also had some epic Fairy Tale wedding extravaganzas with castles, costumes, cakes, dancers, boats, and an eastern European celebrity (Bebe Dol).
Had I known, I would have brought a nicer dress. And packed some heels. And some pantyhose.
But wait, there’s more…
My husband was knighted in the Republic of San Marino.
Crazy, huh?! You can call him Sir Devin now.
My personal knight-in-shining-armor is now a Cavalieri di San Marino. Wow.
Expect the Unexpected, and bring an Umbrella
Nothing was what we expected, especially where weather was concerned. (It rained almost every day in each city, and then the sun would come out on our wedding day. Rinse and repeat.)
It was the most over the top romantic, wonderful adventure of my life so far… and I managed to pick up some cute wedding shoes (and panty hose) along the way.
