Friends, I’ve been gone for what feels like forever. It was actually only a two-week break, but I have a good reason, I promise.
WE GOT MARRIED.
We got MARRIED!
WE. GOT. MARRIED!!!
We’ll get back to our regularly scheduled programming here in a bit, but I wanted to take a second to reflect on the best day of my life so far. When pics roll in, I’ll do a whole post on the wedding itself. The logistics, the ceremony, the dress, the shoes, the makeup, the last-minute changes, the backdrop we put together in two minutes, the kickass playlist we curated (which you can find here if you’d like!), every little bit of it.
But right now, I’m going to keep it short and sweet in an attempt to capture the overall energy of the day.
It was absolute perfection. Our friends and family stood by us and supported us in the most loving way imaginable. J’s father officiated the ceremony, and we were so honored and grateful to have him quite literally guide the way as we promised each other forever.
All of our people were wholly present. They showed up for us despite the rain, the distance, baby schedules, the non-traditional nature of our day – they were there to celebrate us as individuals and a pair.
And Justin. He was, and always will be, the best part of everything. I could (and will) spend days, years, and decades searching for the words to adequately describe how much I love him. I’m not sure they exist, but I’m going to keep giving it a shot.
For now, I’ll say that he’s my heart’s home. On February 17, 2018, I stood in front of a small group of our closest people and promised to do my very best to love and support J more every day, and I’m so honored to have the privilege to do so.
We got married.
