The first wedding really didn't require that much effort... We pretty much just drove around Reno until we found a chapel (which was harder than you'd think...), walked across the street to get our marriage license, walked back to the chapel and were married in about 15 minutes. We were both in jeans and our Cinco de Mayo Corona t-shirts.
I'm glad we did it though. We were ready to be married. My family isn't ready for us to be married, so none of them know, but whatever!
