Fiancé are I are dual army- he is in the reserves and I am in the guard
We have teetered back and forth about just going to the courthouse or having a ceremony. At first I wanted to get married at a historic building on guard headquarters base (that is frequently used for retirement ceremonies) but it is just now under construction and will be for the next several months.
We then looked at another venue but it is more than we want to spend.
The closest army base is two and a half hours away. However there is an Air Force base that is 30min away. I called a left a message with the assistant for the chaplain to see if it would be fine for us to get married there (since we are non Air Force). The assistant also mentioned something about marriage counseling? Do some chaplains have that as a requirement?
We are wanting to get married in late July (not much time left to plan). Were any of yall able to have a reception at the chapel as well (cake and punch)? We just want something nice, simple, quick and easy.
