We did it!
We are officially a Mr. and Mrs.! BEST DAY EVER! There are not enough words in the world to describe how absolutely perfect our wedding day was. I've never been so happy in my life, it was so wonderful. It was surreal to see everything we'd been working on for over a year come together into more than we could have ever imagined. It was just so beautiful and there were so many sweet people to celebrate with us. Plus we had a great wedding crew behind the scenes making it happen! Hats off to our fantastic venue the Vineyards and their rockstar staff (Lindsey is wedding goddess, she makes miracles happen), the Vineyards' amazing florist (most beautiful flowers I've ever seen) and kitchen (ummm best wedding food ever?), our talented photographer (can't wait to see all the pictures!), rockstar DJ (seriously keeps a party going), and my fabulous supportive family (love youuuu). Couldn't have done it without you all!
My favorite part was definitely the ceremony. I lost my cool and cried all the way down the aisle, happy, happy tears. It was just so amazing to walk with my parents by my side towards the man I love more than anything, surrounded by all of our friends and family! I know it sounds corny but I seriously had tunnel vision, all I saw was Brendon. Our good friend Derek wrote the ceremony, and it was pretty unbelievable. He has skills, if you need an officiant, I'd talk to Derek, he's a matrimonial genius. Brendon and I wrote our own vows, which I was super nervous about but it ended up being the best thing ever. Everyone should write their own vows, I can't explain how wonderful it was hearing his and reading mine to him. It makes me tear up thinking about it.
It was just such a perfect day full of love, and towards the end of the night, craziness! We had SO much fun at the reception. It was a dance party for sure, I don't think I've ever seen so many awesome moves busted. We danced so much I literally wore the soles of my shoes off and my feet were super swollen for the next two days. Totally worth it. My family and friends are badasses and they sure know how to have a good time. We are so lucky to have such great people in our lives.
Can't believe how incredible it was. If I could relive that day over and over and over I would. I wouldn't change one thing.
I'm sure I'll bombard you with more details later, plus the honeymoon! So much goodness!
