Looking back at the past weekend, I have a difficult time putting into words how amazing and wonderful everything was.
From the location (Lady of the Lake), to the musician (Mars Meusel) , to the catering (Pies & More), and to all of our family and friends that helped us celebrate, it was hands down one of the best days of my life.
And just like that, its over. But we have so many great memories.
Just a few shots of the big day. Can’t wait to see the rest!
Yesterday started with a “bridal shower” and ended with a “bachelorette party” in my honor.
I’m intrigued and perplexed by the many “traditions” surrounding a wedding these days, which essentially is about deciding to commit yourself to your partner for the rest of your life.
As many brides before me I’m sure, I have been overwhelmed by the expectations to do things according to tradition: you need a bouquet, you should walk down an aisle, you have to register for gifts, you need to have a bridal shower, you should invite so and so, and the list goes on. All of these things are just details that probably won’t matter a month from now. Its all part of the process of learning about yourself, your partner, and both of your families.
What’s most important is making memories with family and friends, both old and new.
When all the dust settles from the celebrations and excitement surrounding our “wedding extravaganza” I am confident I will look back and know I was surrounded by great family and friends who really love us. And the memories will make me smile. A lot.
And thats really what matters in life. Right?
