Answers to your questions..

Did we decide to cancel the wedding? Yes. As soon as I learned that I am losing my job next month, that was my first decision. We are already married, and even if I was wearing a cute little dress and not a wedding dress, it is still special to me. We could have still had the wedding if we wanted to, but in trying to be wise about the uncertain future, we're going to save the money that we would have had to spend to make it happen.

Am I sad about not having a wedding? Yes and no. I am sad that I wont get to "experience" it..but it makes our marriage no less important or strong by not having one.

Am I going to look for a new job? Undecided. David said I could try and focus on photography full time for a while and we'll see how that goes.

How did my boudoir marathon go this weekend? AMAZING! Definitely my best work ever! I am starting to edit, have 1/8 edited now..the rest of the week in posts will be showcasing some of my favorites..

You seem really comfortable with the decisions you have made...and I'm really glad that you are going to have the opportunity to focus on something you really love to do...and are FANTASTIC at by the way!

we didn't have a wedding and i'm perfectly fine with that! like you said, having a wedding doesn't mean you love eachother any more. we couldn't afford it at the time so it was just reality! good luck with your photography!!

Glad you're at peace with your decisions! I'd have a tough time- so I applaud you for keeping perspective! And I can't wait to see more of your photography!

Lindsey said...

You have a great perspective on your marriage and the wedding and that's great. Good luck with starting photography full time, so exciting!!!

I agree that the marriage is really what's important. The wedding doesn't change that.

Jules said...

Megan - you have such a great attitude about everthing and you have a great opportunity in front of you to do something that you really love. I am so happy that your b-session went well!

Your perspective is right on track Megan! Maybe this is just the door to expanding your business!

you seem at peace with your decisions and that is wonderful! I am glad you are focusing on photography bc you are so talented! in 10 years you can go renew your vows somewhere wonderful!! Keep your head up!

Kat said...

I think that is a wise decision. You can always have a "wedding" later. Like you said. You are already married and it was just as important and meaningful.

Also. This may be a blessing in disguise. Perhaps this is what will help you photography career take off. :)

i love your outlook on everything! i hope everything goes great with your photography business! you are so good and you'll get lots of clients in no time=)! very exciting!

Rachel said...

I am sure that was a difficult decision to make but it seems you made the right one...we didn't have a big wedding; we eloped and had a party when we got back; very informal and we loved it!

All the best to you; I know what you are going through.
