Reader, I married him.
(When in awe, why not go with a little Charlotte Bronte?)
Three and a half years after our first date.
Two years after our first apartment.
One year after graduation.
We made it! We survived the craziness of driving 3 hours with our loony dog talking away in the back, last minute table decorating, and (the crowning achievement of the evening) nobody forgot their pants. Somehow I even managed to keep my anxiety in check and was able to enjoy the food and drink (yay wine!).
A lot of credit goes to our wonderful photographer, Danielle Vennard, who honestly made my day as stress free as possible by keeping things moving and having fun with our photos. I knew that the special moments were going to be preserved. I mean, look at this picture of my best friend and I.
That’s like our whole 13 years of friendship wrapped into one gorgeous black and white frame.
My family (the new and the original!) and friends who traveled from near and far truly made our day. There’s just something special about having everyone gathered in one place and it wouldn’t have been the same without them.
Now that it’s over, however, I am looking forward to getting back to my blog. I still have a mound of “Thank You” cards to complete, but I’m hoping to sneak away and throw out a few posts. So keep an eye out because I’m back!
