Yes, we eloped.

FB elopement announcement


It’s true, we decided to elope.  He loves her, she loves him so why wait?  To be fair to all the kids we didn’t tell any of them or anybody else and we got married on Valentines Day in a private ceremony at the Missoula County Courthouse.  Which was actually really nice because it’s closed on Saturdays and they were doing weddings by appointment only.  We were the only ones there and afterwards we were able to roam the building taking pictures.  Thanks to Damien and Vanessa Hoffman for being our witnesses and also to Damien for taking pictures and capturing the memories of the day for us.
