|(Matching wedding tattoos done by Nick Wasko)|
A couple weeks after tieing the knot (November 30, 2013), we got these tattoos to commemorate the wedding day. We had a wedding of only 30 people total (including bride & groom, wedding party, and four little ones) and the ceremony took place outdoors at Redwood Park in South Surrey. You can probably guess by now, just based on the design of the tattoo and the date of our wedding, we got hitched in a torrential downpour of rain, with nothing more than umbrellas to keep us dry, and one canopy to cover the table which had our wedding documents to sign.

Yes, we anticipated this, and yes, everyone thought we were a little crazy, but it suited us just perfectly.
We considered long and hard about getting tattooed wedding bands, or initials on our ring fingers, but after much deliberation and advice from our tattoo artist we decided against it. Once we ditched that idea, we started trying to come up with something else we could do. We both eagerly wanted to commemorate the day and after days tossing ideas back and forth and scowering the internet for some more inspiration, we decided on the umbrella, and we never looked back!
Now I know tattoos aren't for everyone, especially when it comes to matching ones with a significant other. But for me, it was a no brain-er. It was a no brainer to say yes to marrying Mark and it was a no brainer to put his initial permanently in my skin. This is just what was right for us.
