It is so hard to believe that we have been married for over a week (and soon to be two). I know that seems crazy to be counting the days we have been married, but I guess I don’t know what to count down to anymore since the wedding is over! It still seems like a dream. I can’t tell you how amazing our wedding day was, and the overwhelming sense of peace and calm and “rightness” that permeated the entire day. It was literally a perfect day. When neither of our 18 month old nephews decided to walk down the aisle as our ringbearers, it was perfect. When Dustin and I both broke down into tears, like steady-streams-funny-face-with-lots-of-sinus-noises kind of crying, when the wedding march started playing and we saw each other for the first time on our wedding day, it was perfect. When I forgot to hand my bouquet to my bridesmaid before stepping up on the stage and she had to step up and get it from me, it was perfect! Every single little detail of that day was beautifully perfect.
I am so excited to share our wedding pictures and rehearsal dinner photobooth shots from our photographer, Julie Mixon. I can hardly wait to explain every little detail behind our wedding and show you why I’ve been such an absent blogger for the last 9 months!
I honestly thought we may have been a little crazy for planning our wedding in 9 months, but I think it was just the right length of time for an engagement. Not too short, not too long. I remember hearing a sermon from my pastor at Hope Community church in college saying he didn’t believe in long engagements, and I really took that to heart. :) hah! In all honesty, we chose our date according to Dustin’s school schedule. It worked out well to have the wedding on March 19 because he was on break between his winter and spring quarters and we were able to go on our honeymoon immediately following the wedding. Speaking of honeymoon, I have lots of great pictures to share from that AND a few great stories… if I can suddenly become brave enough to post them :) Let’s just say I may never ride a vespa again. Hah!
