I guess I’ve been delaying the inevitable. I didn’t want to do the third and final of my wedding posts, because then that meant that the event was really over and done. Obviously our marriage has only just begun, and has started off so wonderfully, but the wedding was so much fun and I’m a little sad I can’t go relive the whole thing over (and over) again. This is also such a happy post, because these are absolutely my favorite pictures of all of the ones I’ve shared. It’s the reception!
We got married on July 21st of this year, and it was without a doubt everything we could have hoped or wished for. While there were definitely hitches here or there, we couldn’t have cared less. It was magical and wonderful and the best day of our lives so far. I’ve never felt so happy or special; my face hurt from smiling the whole night.
My favorite part of the whole reception, and my advice to anyone who is getting married, was the few minutes that we sat at our sweetheart table and looked around. We were alone, we were so happy, we were together, and we just stole a couple of minutes to soak it all in. The whole night was such a blur, but I remember those moments the most clearly of them all. We looked at the decor and all that we had planned, we looked at the people that sat in the room sharing the day with us, and we looked each other and the smiles on our faces. After soaking it all in for just a moment, we pulled out his phone and did a quick video of it. It’s so special to me to have that, not only because it reminds me of that moment, but also because we didn’t have a videographer. I will never forget the memory I have of it, but I also am so happy to have the video of it as well.
And the rest of the night can be told in pictures.
And then of course we headed off on our honeymoon, which was just as magical. In the sense that I can’t believe it all really happened. The wedding and the honeymoon were more than I ever could have dreamed of as a little girl who thinks of her wedding day, and I’m blessed to have married a man that is so incredible in every possible way–more so than I ever could have hoped for. We’re so lucky.
I don’t know how to end a post that contains images and thoughts that are so special and important to me. I will end it very simply by saying that life is good, and we are happy.
