Our Wedding Day: Getting Ready

I’ve been loving sharing our wedding pictures and honestly wish I would have started years ago! These pictures are just too good not to share, in my opinion at least! We paid thousands of dollars for wedding photos so I might as well use them!

After our rehearsal dinner on Friday night I went to a fancy hotel with my bridesmaids for the night. We had so much fun snacking out of the vending machine, cramming ourselves into the Jacuzzi tub, and just hanging out.

One of my favorite parts of our wedding day was getting ready with my Bridesmaids. I went with my Bridesmaids to get our hair and makeup done at a local salon before heading to our wedding venue. We had bagels, mimosas, and fruit at the salon. We took pictures together and talked. I felt so happy and so ready for our big day!

I arrived at the wedding venue before anyone else so I was able to walk around and see how everything had been setup. It was so peaceful and really helped calm my anxiety!

My mom and sister helped me into my dress which was a really special moment for the three of us. They are both my best friends and I loved sharing the whole wedding process with them!

Brett got ready for the day with his groomsmen in one of the camp cabins. We got married at a local summer camp that I attended as a child. I have so many happy memories at camp and I am grateful to have added another amazing memory.

We had a first look before the ceremony so we took a ton of pictures before the wedding started. I’ll share our first look photos soon!

Thanks for reading!

Our First Wedding Anniversary

Today is the day! One year ago I was at the hair salon getting my makeup and hair done for our wedding. I was dressed in my getting ready robe and surrounded by my friends. We drank mimosas and ate bagels and fruit on the back deck of the salon. I felt a little anxious but mostly excited and SO ready to start the day.

Meanwhile, Brett was back at our apartment with his friends. He won’t admit it but he was a little anxious too. He forgot his vows so our brother in law had to go back and grab them. Brett, the groomsmen, and my dad met at the venue in the morning to setup the centerpieces and other décor. They then went back to my parent’s house for lunch.

I can’t believe it’s already been a year. I can still remember exactly how I felt during each moment of our day. I hope we never lose the newlywed feeling or forget how much we loved each other on this day.

Our first year of marriage was full of changes. We lost Brett’s Grandma Emma in December which was devastating for both of us. We went to many, many airshows where Brett took on new roles such as Assistant Air Boss. Brett started a new job in event planning and has really excelled! We bought our first house and have loved getting settled in it. We traveled to London, Florida, New York, and many other places. We adopted Oscar and settled into life as a family of four.

Marriage has been easy so far but I know it won’t always be that way. Brett and I are lucky because we are really good friends in addition to being husband and wife. I hope when it gets tough we can remember the love we felt on our wedding day and continue to fight for each other. I love him more today than I did on our wedding day and I know that love will keep growing.

It’s been a great year and I am looking forward to many more!
