Evening writing this blog has me teeming with happiness. Andrew and I are celebrating our first married anniversary in a couple days, and I wanted to relive the day with you with showing some of our FANTASTIC wedding photos taken by the talented Emily Chidester. We were even fortunate enough to be featured on Junebug Wedding's website for our special day. When you get a second, hop over there to check it out. It is such a complete honor to be able to share our day with so many people :) It makes that memory just that sweeter. 

On September 17th, 2016, Andrew and I got married :) We chose a charming venue up in Sylva, North Carolina called the Vineyards of Betty’s Creek where we fell in love with the stunning lodge, and pavilion with a killer view. It was so awesome how our families could stay on the property for the weekend so we could have time together before the festivities. To look back on this day warms my heart. It was everything we had hoped it to be, plus more. These photos are such a wonderful glimpse into such a happy occasion, it was when I promised forever to my best friend. From getting ready to our first look reading our vows out loud, to saying our “I dos” and dancing the night away, it was one hell of a celebration, and the beginning of the best adventure yet. 

Now, of course, the day of was perfect, but the marriage has been so better. It has been hard, messy, and imperfect of course, but it has been filled with more laughter, love, goofiness, and more selflessness than I have ever known before.  Andrew, thank you for loving me, and for choosing me every day. You are my best friend and a wonderful husband. Thanks for doing life with me, and making me laugh. I love you dear friend, and I cannot wait to continue on this adventure -- it has been a wonderful one so far.

Before, during, and after baby!

I will leave you all will fresh happy tears and true sappiness as I watch our wedding video done by Jon Clark Weddings over and over again. Happy September 17th, it will forever be one of my favorite days :)
