we got married!!!

Well it finally happened... the best, most wonderful, exciting, overwhelming, happiest day of my life. I married the love of my life, my very best friend.

It was the most perfect day, even down to the snow. We usually get a ton of snow in Delaware by now, but it hasn't snowed all winter... except the day before our wedding. So when we got married, there was snow on the ground. It gave everything the perfect ambiance for our winter themed wedding.

We were so happy with how everything turned out! And our hearts are very thankful, filled to the brim and running over, for everything everyone did for our wedding. Families came together, friends traveled from far away, people gave us their time to help and we were showered with amazing wedding gifts. I could never express how blessed we feel.

We have honeymooned, moved into the home we've been working on for the last six months, gone back to work and are settling into married life. I don't think I have ever been more content.

I could go on and on four hours about our beautiful day, but let me just share a few pictures with you that Michael's cousin took.

All my flower arrangements had white flowers, pine and grey dusty miller leaves. Perfect for a frosty, winter look.

Ceremony room filled with family and friends. Those windows showed a beautiful view of the Chesapeake Bay.

Lovely bridesmaids.

First dance as husband and wife.

Dance with my Dad.

Full dance floor! I loved this part.

With my sweet nephew. I am so glad we have a picture together. Look at his little suit!

More to come, including the pictures from our wedding photographer, who did our engagement photos.

But for now - I so appreciate everyone hanging in there with me while I went through this incredible life change. And thank you for sharing this special time with me.
