Getting Married 100 Times
Devin and I love being married so much that we’re getting married again and again — 100 weddings in 100 countries. http://intheknowbride.com/100-weddings/
File this under “putting love first is good for business.” Back in May, when I eloped a week after my husband proposed to me over skype (I was in Bali; he was in S Africa), I had a very strong intuition that the BEST thing I could do for my business was follow my heart, be happy, and travel the world with my beloved. Back when I was single I specifically told the universe I wanted to travel the world with my life partner…
How It Began
When Devin asked me to marry him, I realized I didn’t want a big wedding. The prize, for me, was the marriage to this man. A big old fairy tale wedding felt like an obstacle (and a lot of hassle and expense). So I requested an elopement. I thought I’d rather save the money and the stress, and just focus on the marriage and travel with my husband.
The first trip changed everything. While we were in Puerto Vallarta on Honeymoon #1, and walking by the iconic Cathedral downtown, my husband of 13 days asked, “Wanna get married again?” I responded, “Absolutely!” And that gave birth to an itch to get married EVERYWHERE in the world. In Mosques and Temples and Synagogues and yurts…
Now we’re embarking on 100 Weddings in 100 countries. We’re going to check off 10 next month in Croatia, Montenegro, Bosnia, Herzegovina, Srpska, Serbia, Slovenia, Italy, San Marino, Vatican City… and the tourism boards of the different countries are gifting us honeymoon suites, free passes to their best attractions, private tour guides, and Dubrovnik is even throwing us a wedding! A book is in the works.
Putting Love First
A new business has been born, accidentally. New website et al. We plan to include travel and relationship resources. We’ve even been approached by a reality show production company to shoot a TV pilot in Italy. And it’s all arising 100% out of Devin’s and my commitment to putting love–and our marriage–before anything else.
If you have any ideas on where we should get married next, give it to me!
