it’s been 6 months…

May 13th, 2010

…since robert and I said “i do”. Surprise! We’ve been legally married for 6 months now.  Only 78 days to go til our church ceremony and big celebration.

Not very many people knew about this beforehand. Duy was the only person to accompany us to the Fullerton courthouse to double as a witness and to photograph the milestone event back on Friday, November 13th. Gwen Huyen also knew since she came over to style an up-do for the special occasion.

Here’s Gwen styling my hair. That Kim Anderson photo in the background was a gift from Robert on our 1st Valentine’s Day 12 years ago.

Duy being so detailed took a photo of the flip calendar at the courthouse.

Here we are inking our commitment to one another.

We swore to the justice of the peace.

We chose this courthouse because of the room. The words on the wall state:
May you strive all your lives…

…to meet this commitment with the same love and devotion…

…that you now possess.

This was great practice for our upcoming church ceremony.

Our official first kiss as husband and wife.

The officiant was so moved she got teary eyed!

The rings.

I put together this bouquet myself from a grower’s bunch @Costco.
Funny thing is we almost forgot to bring it! Had to swing back around to grab it.

We explored downtown Fullerton for a bit.

Didn’t Gwen Huyen do an amazing job on my up-do?

Love this shot. Shows the name of the city where we got married.

So did I opt to take his last name? Sure did!
My new name: Thao Vu Archey.
There was no way I could fully let go of my maiden name.
