On July 27th, 2016, we got married in D.C. marriage bureau. It was also my 24th birthday.

We tried to make our wedding ceremony as simple as possible– a courthouse one. Our parents flew from China to witness this moment, and they couldn’t be happier.Only our immediate relatives attend this event.

A wedding without a ceremony means I want the shining part of our marriage not at the beginning but along the process, but the 80-year long journey after hopefully. I honestly believe that a long-lasting marriage lies not at one point but in everyday dull and maybe boring life. Marriage is a verb, not a noun.I love my husband and will try my best to build a full of love and happiness marriage. After finding true loves,  I realize ceremony is just a show. We have been brainwashed by movies, media, and industries for years. 

I am very grateful that I met my husband.  He is the most protective, reassured, and considerate man. I will never let him down.
