I confess...Anniversary edition

This Sunday is my first wedding anniversary and there are about a zillion different emotions going through my head. Okay, maybe not a zillion but there's joy, disbelief, thankfulness, megawatt happiness and a bit of nostalgia, too. It's so hard to believe that this time last year I was insanely [but joyfully] busy, putting the last minute touches onto everything for the big day. The week before my wedding was the best week of my life and I can't remember feeling more blessed.

So today, I'm confessing

::: I did not stop smiling all day.

::: Our photographer snapped some pretty priceless photos.
 


::: I had the best ladies ever in my bridal party


::: My first look with Daddy was such a special moment.


::: This is my favorite picture of Mama B from that day.
 

::: I acted like a silly child.


::: I felt glamorous for the first time in my life.


::: I only had eyes for him walking down the aisle.
 

 


::: Kissing my groom was the most magical moment.



::: Our pictures in DC are some of the best wedding pictures I've ever seen ;)
 



 

::: The reception came together better than I imagined.



::: Dancing to "Bye Bye Bye" at the end of our father/daughter dance was such a fun memory and I'm so glad it went off without a hitch. You can watch the full video *here*
 

::: I was a traditional bride and enjoyed all the fun traditions at our reception.

 

 

::: The sissys and I created lifelong memories that day.

::: I had the best group of friends in the world, in attendance and their joy in our celebration made the day perfect.
 

::: My parents may have been the cutest couple on the dance floor!
 

::: Having my 87 year old grandfather healthy and in attendance was incredible. I wish with all my heart my grandmother were still on earth to share in my special day, but I know she had the best seat in the house in heaven.

::: It truly was, the perfect day!

The week of our wedding, there was rain in the forecast for our big day. Every day, I'd email the manager of San Diego Wedding venues, worried sick and he assured me to not to stress, "I will take care of everything," and he did!
