So. BIG NEWS….WE GOT MARRIED!!!
There are not enough exclamation points or emojis to capture how I feel about our wedding day. Some high-pitched squealing // joyous shrieking sounds might come close though. I will try to keep the all caps words and exclamation point-ing to a minimum, but I have a sneaking suspicion I’m about to fail at that COMPLETELY (← see, already doing it).
On Sunday 7.2.17, Billy and I exchanged our “I do’s” in Yosemite National Park. We were surrounded by seventy of those nearest & dearest to us, in our favorite spot on earth. The sun was shining. The waterfalls were raging. We were standing among tall trees, on green grass, framed by impossibly tall walls of granite. There were tears and laughter, toasting and dancing, and even DONUTS.
I could not stop smiling the whole day.
Even when everyone else went home, the music stopped, and our shoes came off. Even when I was back in pj’s, trying to figure out how the hell to remove those fake lashes (without also removing an eyelid). Even then, the day felt indescribably magical. In that quiet space after the whole event was over, that’s when the happiness hit us the hardest. It was the day when we FINALLY got to marry one another.
As our cake topper will tell you – it was the BEST DAY EVER.
All those months of planning and budgeting and DIY-ing and writing our vows for one another came together into that one unforgettable day. So before diving back into all-things-food here on the blog, I wanted to share all the happy details (and of course alllllllll the pictures) with you!!
It’s why I’ve been a little M.I.A. here on the blog – we’ve just been super wrapped up in enjoying every minute of our newly-married life. We went from the wedding weekend to the honeymoon to resuming everyday life here in our little home together. Amidst the unpacking, the endless amounts of laundry, catching up on work, and the chaos that is trying to change your last name with every government agency in the land (*eye roll*) – somehow the excitement from that day still hasn’t worn off.
All I want is to keep riding on this wave of pure post-wedding bliss a little bit longer. Which includes scrolling through these pictures & reliving every detail from last month until my heart bursts. Care to join?
