married!

Standard

I’ve been busy getting married and honeymooning with my HUSBAND that I’ve had little time for blogging. It’s been all I dreamed and more. I love being married and feel so lucky that I landed in the lap of this fun loving, giving, funny as hell, affectionate smart loving man who asked me to marry him.Β  I’m still in PA at our home here for a few more days loving the long views and fresh breezes. We’ve been having an utter ball being married, things just get better and better I’m happy to say.

Here are some photos of our time up to the wedding and our beautiful simple wedding itself next to the stunning Niagara Falls. By the way if you’ve never been, get yourself there!Β  And stay at the Sheraton on the Falls! Just breathtaking. I’ve never seen or felt anything quite like it and can’t wait to go back again. I’ll post another entry on our honeymoon soon but for now…our special wedding day (and the days leading up to it traveling to Canada).

Gotta love a man who can pack a car brilliantly.

Yes we pretty much hopped in the robes and popped open a bottle of champagne upon arriving to our room. Check out the view!

What a fantastic day all the way around, perfect in every way!

Some highlights of the ceremony:Β  we wrote each other’s vows that we didn’t know a word of until we each opened a sealed envelope at the ceremony spot. They were surprisingly or rather unsurprisingly similar.

Here is a photo of our rings with each other’s fingerprint lasered in to the gold. We also had the words “faith and surrender” engraved on the inside. They feel like a second skin.

    I love your love & thank you for sharing, you are an inspiration to say the least. Your writing speaks to my soul, words known, but which I cannot express. I’ve walked a similar path but cannot reveal my personal pain…because that makes it too real to handle. I am so proud of you. May God continue to bless your Union. Fate is so awesome!

  5. I always love your pictorials, they convey so many thoughts. I see love, courage, wisdom, and a blooming life of laughter ahead. Congratulations to two very special friends I have had the pleasure to follow. Life is full of balancing each other’s ups and downs, and being there when we need a smile, a hug, a laugh.

    Thanks so much for sharing your life with us, my KatieCoo!

  6. Congratulations to you both! Thank you for sharing your happiness with us. Your wedding was beautiful; and I loved the way you integrated the fox and owl throughout.
