After the Wedding

The cupcakes are eaten.  The beer is nearly gone.  The last of the roses are wilting, and I could have cried the other day when I finally put my dress back inside of the garment bag.  The wedding is over, and I feared I’d be terribly sad with a whole heck of a lot of financial remorse.  I have none of this.  Nearly a week afterward, I am still beaming, smiling from ear to ear, just thinking of what an amazing, perfect weekend it was.  We made so many memories this week with all of our favorite people in the entire world.  It was perfection and the only bit of sadness I have is that I wish we could do it all over again.  That or wear my dress out just because, but unfortunately that’s not socially acceptable ;)  

So here we are, 5 days newlyweds, and I can honestly say, we both feel different.  We’ve been living together for 2 years now and have basically been “married” for a while, meaning nothing’s really changed besides the extra ring on our fingers, but we both agree that it feels different somehow.  I mean I don’t even know how this is possible, but I swear I think I love him even more!  The amount of security, of settledness, of foreverness that I feel today is so much stronger than it was a week ago and I’m honestly pretty surprised about it. I didn’t think I could get any more smitten than I already was, but I am.  He is my hero and I couldn’t be happier to spend my life with him.  

I’ll be back in the weeks to come with more details and updates on what turned out to be a full 4 day affair, but for now, enjoy some of the shots I picked up from friends via facebook and IG.  It was the best day of my life!

On the way to the ceremony!
