The Day We Said "I Do"

August 24th, 2014, The day we became a family. A magical blur, as Tim describes it, and it really was. In the blink of an eye, all the months of preparation and planning, finished. We were both so nervous the morning of, neither of us really like to be the center of attention. I even had my garter fall to my ankle while walking down the aisle. But, when our eyes locked everything and everyone faded away, and it was just the two of us.

Tim and I decided to repeat aloud vows that we found and really liked, but also wrote our own personal ones to share quietly with one another. Tim mentioned our inside jokes and eloquently described his love for me. I was trying so hard not to cry, but once I saw a tear stream down his face, I couldn't hold back.

Our reception turned out beautifully and I'm so thankful for all the help from our family and friends. This was definitely a team effort and it wouldn't have been possible without everyone. Our cupcakes and topper cake were amazingly crafted. I had no idea desserts could look so perfect. After dinner, we opened the mic for speeches and toasting. Everyone had so many kind words to share and so much love filled the room, Tim and I are still reminiscing about some of them.

Our first dance was to XO covered by John Mayer. It's a little funny that our song is originally by Beyonce, but its sentimental to us and our relationship. We then danced with family and opened the floor for everyone to join. Tim and I got to sit back and watch all the love in the room, it was so beautiful and probably one of my favorite moment of the night.

I am so glad to have these photos for the rest of our life together to look back on. I hope you enjoyed a peek into our big day, and I hope you'l stick around to see where life takes us on this journey together!


P.s.  Madeleine did a wonderful job and I can definitely see us doing business with her again. Here is a link to her site where you can see more of her photography.
