My Wedding Day Extravaganza


It's been quite some time, hasn't it? I CANNOT believe that it's been over 8 months since my last post. Sometimes it's hard to predict those hectic moments in your life and when they're going to arrive. Hopefully, I'll be able to keep posting regularly again – oh how I miss it!

These last few months have been nothing short of exhausting! The wedding came and went so fast that I hardly had time to even know what was going on. It did, however, turn out to be the very best day of my life. I specifically remember sitting at the head table at our reception, looking around and thinking, "These people are all here for ME (and Brandt, of course!)?" It's an amazing feeling to have every important person in your life in one place at the same time – there to celebrate this next stage in your life. I loved every minute of it.

Since then, Brandt and I have been busy getting our lives in order and adjusting to the married life. So far, so good! We've got a quaint little home that we have tirelessly been working on/decorating, which has been a fun experience. All in all, life is good.

Now, I'd like to show you guys a little bit of our wedding. It was a beautiful fall day – couldn't have asked for anything better.

What do you think? Pretty, right? Ahhhh, I'm in love.

Now for some of my favorite moments.

#1. Getting Ready – Making ourselves purdy for the big day was one of my favorite moments. I mean, you're surrounded by the women in your life who you love the most – and they're giving you endless compliments because, well, they have to! What's not to love?

#2. The First Look – Brandt and I decided we would see each other before the wedding, and let me tell ya, it was the best decision we made about the wedding. It was absolutely PERFECT. My favorite part of the entire day. If you're debating about whether or not to do it, DO IT. It's something you'll remember for the rest of your life. And no, it does not make the walk down the aisle any less meaningful. You will still cry. Trust me.

#3. Friends & Family Time – Like I said before, these are some of your favorite people in the entire world. And they're all here for you. Take some time to revel in the fact that you can all be together. It's such a great feeling.

#4. The Ceremony – Duh. The moment you become husband and wife! It's almost surreal and it will be over before you know. I wish I had taken a minute to look around the church to see everyone. I was, however, far too nervous that I would turn into a blubbering mess (don't worry, I did that right BEFORE I walked down the aisle.)

#5. You + Him Time – After the ceremony, Brandt and I decided to take pictures on our own. There was no hassle of carting the entire wedding party around, and we got to have a little bit of alone time (with the photographer) to enjoy our new marital status. We did a little bit of everything: vintage car, open field, even a canoe ride across my family's pond that everyone was sure was going to turn into a disaster. Proved them wrong! I mean, how many people can say they paddled a canoe in their wedding dress?

#6. The Par-tay – Obviously. We ate like pigs, toasted to happy futures, drank far too much, chowed down on a dozen different cakes and danced our little butts off. And yes, our dance floor was outside under the open sky. Sounds pretty great, huh? It was!

There you have it! I appreciate you guys taking the time to read this. Happy wedding planning!

An abundance of outsiders are just so graceful provided that Tech Gadgets. surveys show this. Yesterday it was show time. Maybe they want to relax and enjoy this. Do something referring to that. This is something that you may need to think over getting a Tech Gadgets professional to take care of. I can't comprehend it in this day and age as soon as Tech Gadgets is an effortless and comfortable way to do it.
