Posts Tagged ‘Wedding’

I have been so overwhelmed with emotion since our wedding. As a little girl whose favorite movies were Cinderella and Ever After, I can’t remember a day when I didn’t hope for my own Prince Charming to come and sweep me off my feet. I grew up believing in fairytales, and am now living one of my own. The best part? It is not the end. There is no “fade out” on the final photo to a happily ever after. This is the beginning of the rest of our lives. And what a beautiful beginning it was.

To Cody — Thank you for loving me, for choosing me. And not only when you asked me to be yours for the rest of our lives, but every day. You choose me even when I’m difficult, emotional, irrational. You love me, in spite of my imperfections. You love me because of them. I’ve never met anyone so understanding, who gets me like you do. You are my match in every way. There are no words to adequately describe you or our love. It is a love unlike I’ve ever known, one that I fall deeper into each day. I will always cherish you, respect you, and put you first. I promise to keep dating you, to make you laugh, to take too many pictures so when we’re old and gray we can look back and smile on this beautiful life we had together. You are the best husband, friend, and lover I could ever ask for. You are my favorite person to share a bottle of wine with, to go on adventures with, to have a fancy meal with, to be completely and utterly ridiculous with. I can’t wait to have your babies and love you for the rest of my life. Thank you for making me the luckiest girl on this planet. I hope to love you as deeply as you love me.

To the ones who raised us — Thank you for shaping us into the individuals we are today. Thank you for loving us, for showing us what unconditional love is. You’ve seen us grow up, allowed us to make our own decisions, and supported us. We wouldn’t have got here without you. Thank you for believing in our love story, and walking alongside us as we made this commitment. We couldn’t be happier to not only find each other, but to grow our family in the process. It has been such a blessing to get to know each of you, to find another place to call home.

To our wedding party — Thank you for standing by us, before we knew we were meant to be, while we were trying to figure it out, and now that we have. To my ladies especially, you have been there through relationships not even worth mentioning. You have seen me at my worst, and I couldn’t be more thankful that you believed in me enough, loved me enough, to stick around for my best. You are the sisters I never had, and I am so blessed to have friendships that feel like family. Thank you for standing by my side. Thank you to all of you. You made our day so special. Whether it was dancing the night away, laughing amidst photos, or hiding out for a Bud Light break, simply being there was more meaningful than we could ever put into words. You know us in a way a lot of people don’t, and through that, have built relationships we know will last a lifetime. Thank you for being a part of our lives and supporting our love.

To Bill — Thank you for sharing your wisdom, your insight, and your experience. Thank you for reitterating the importance of a Christ-filled marriage, and walking us through making that a reality. You are more than a pastor, or a counselor, you are our friend. Thank you for sharing in that relationship, in both times of seriousness and simply sharing life together. We are so thankful to have you and Nancy as a part of our lives.

To Riley — Thank you for sharing your gift with us and capturing our love so beautifully. Thank you for being there, not just as a photographer, but as a friend. I have been so blessed to know you over the years and am so thankful for a friendship that has grown even through our live’s varying stages. It is one I will continue to cherish for years to come. Thank you for being such a huge part of our day, our story. We all know how much I love pictures, and yours have brought me to tears more than I need to share. Thank you for everything. It’s more than I can say.

To our family and friends — Thank you for sharing in our love. Thank you for traveling, for planning to be there, for loving us enough to show up. It truly leaves me speechless. What other time is there for all your nearest and dearest to be in the same space? That is a gift unlike any other. The most special gift we could have recieved. To get to share our best day with you. Thank you for supporting us in that way and for the many roles you have played in our lives. Our day wouldn’t have been the same without you. From the bottom our hearts, it meant the world to have you there.

To Marek’s DJ Services, Timeless Rental, Esteemed Events, Vanessa at Mystique Edge, Victoria’s Garden, Bakehouse, Recreational Springs, The Black Tux, BHLDN, and Emma & Grace Bridal — Thank you for listening to my vision, and working with that vision to make it a reality. You each played such an important role, from finding me the most important dress I’ll ever own to the best looking suits and bridesmaids dresses I saw in the entire planning process. From the perfect decor to the “keep this party going” music, to maintaining the flow of the day, and creating such a beautiful display. From the delicious treats, to the gorgeous backdrops, to our picture perfect hair, and the breathtaking flowers. Cody and I couldn’t have asked for or planned for a more perfect day, and it was truly my honor to work with each and every one of you. The puzzle wouldn’t have been complete without you each sharing your gifts, talents, and expertise to make it our best day ever. I’d do it all over again in a heartbeat.

Our wedding day was a dream come true. One our best days, and one I am certain we will treasure for the rest of our lives. Thank you for helping us create a lasting memory and believing in our once in a lifetime love.
