Last weekend was one that I will treasure forever – Marty and I tied the knot. 🙂 After all the planning, prayers, and anticipation we became man and wife around 4:30 on October 22nd.
The wedding was more than I could’ve asked for. My mother worked very hard on making sure every detail fit our personality. For those of you who know me well, you know that I LOVE fall. I love the colors, the smells (fallen leaves anyone? pumpkin cider, fresh apples), the tastes (pumpkin anything, carmel apples), the sights (trees, harvest themes, pumpkins) – it is truly an amazing season. I think my mom captured the season just wonderfully (and God blessed us with perfect Fall weather).
Looking back on the day, I can’t imagine it going any smoother. We had our friend Julie read “Shall I Compare Thee to a Summer’s Day” during the ceremony, rode away in a horse-drawn carriage, and shared our first dance to Iron and Wine’s “Love and Some Verses”. Other memorable moments include the ducks that crashed our photography session (see photo above), Marty foregoing the garter toss and instead placing it in his father’s pocket (see photo below), the three toasts (given by sister of the bride Michelle, friend of groom Nate, and Marty’s aunt Nickie), laughing with my small group, and honestly, just being able to walk up to the Inn together after a long, wonderful day.
