The day had finally arrived, after being engaged for 23 very long months, we were finally getting married! The excitement, the anticipation, the down-right-giddiness was just radiating from everyone it seemed.
We said our vows in the Church where we grew up, it was downright dreamy that day.
As I slipped into my wedding finery surrounded by my sister, sisters-in-law, cousins, aunts, my Mom, my Mother-in-law and dear friends, I was calm and enjoying every beautiful moment.
As my wonderful Dad walked me down the aisle to my love, I couldn't help but grin the entire way.
During our hour long Catholic Mass, everyone else disappeared and we were in our own world. Whispering, giggling, staring into each others eyes and like magic, we were husband and wife. (In this picture, we're praying to the Virgin Mary.)
So, surrounded by all the people we love best, we began our journey.
The party stretched on until midnight, with lots of dancing and drinking, until we slipped away and stayed our first night as Mr & Mrs in a fabulous hotel on the Gulf.
It was my dream wedding and I love watching our video every July 15th. C and I always drag out our personalized toasting glasses and toast another year of marriage and make promises for the new one. I wouldn't change a thing and I can't wait to see where this year will take us. It's been quite the roller coaster but I can't imagine being on this ride with anyone else.
