We did it

(image courtesy of Beautiful Union Portraits)


We're married. I'm a wife. He's a husband. It's the best.

I was told by more guests than I can count that it was the best wedding they'd ever been to and I couldn't agree more. Every aspect of our night was perfect. I want to document many of those things here, but it will need to wait until I am a little more coherent and awake. It's been an absolute whirlwind for 36 hours and I need a nap more than anything else at this point.

What I can tell you, despite my state of partial consciousness, is that I would not have changed a single thing. It was my perfect wedding. He is my perfect husband. I'm going to do my best to be his perfect wife from here on out. I couldn't ask for more.

I will share so much more a little later. Here's a preview: Matthew told me he had a surprise for me. He refused to give me a clue further than "it has something to do with a fat guy named David". I had no idea what he was cooking up. Halfway through our reception our band gave him the mic, handed him a guitar, and he surprised me with the most beautiful rendition of "Our House" by CSN&Y with 2 of our best friends singing harmony and playing 2nd guitar. To say there wasn't a dry house in the place would be an understatement.

A huge whopping CONGRATULATIONS to you and Matthew! "May you be strong enough to bend" when need be.

I love being a wife and my wedding day was one of the proudest highlights of my life.

I still remember grinning like a fool, riding through town from our reception with the balloons, streamer, cans, condoms (yep!) etc
hanging from the car and everyone we passed tooting their horns and waving at us. So silly. So special!

Can't wait to hear all about yours!

You guys are the best! I confess, I checked my email in Paris last week and read the comments... I totally cried in an internet cafe! It's official - I've been an emotional wreck in 4 countries in one week!

(I'd make an emoticon but I can't figure out this damn keyboard)

When I get back I owe all of you comments and gratitude and mushiness. SMOOCHES!
