A Dream Wedding and a New Tradition

...And the Two Became One...

To all of you who told us to cherish every moment because the day would go by fast:  WOW!  You weren't kidding!

Our wedding day was truly a dream come true.  Everything about the day was exciting and perfect, and it very much felt like a dream to me.  There were times while we were getting ready that I truly felt like a princess, and a few times before the ceremony I got a little teary-eyed.  Everything about this day was perfect: the weather, no noticeable hiccups, I married my best friend (BEST of all!), and we had one heck of a party with friends and family on the biggest day of our lives!

From what we've heard so far, it appears the Hora and the photo booth were huge hits, and we're so happy to be hearing that everyone had such a great time!  The pictures from the photo booth are hysterical, and our wedding photos are breathtakingly beautiful!  I'll share our gallery in another post in the near future.

We hid away in a nearby hotel for a couple of days to relax and unwind from the week, and then we drove up the coast for a mini-honeymoon getaway that provided us with much needed relaxation and serenity.  At the end of the week, we stopped in at the Happiest Place on Earth for some fun with Mickey & Friends, and then we were surprisingly so excited to get home to Sophie!  I honestly don't know who was more excited about the reunion, us or Little Miss Wiggly Butt!  She was especially cuddly and lovey-dovy all weekend, which we didn't mind one bit :)

First Family Tradition

After a short week at work, Matthew and I started our first family tradition for Thanksgiving.  We call it Pizza & Pierogi!  Followed by a "family run" the Friday after Thanksgiving to help combat some of the pizza and pierogi eating.  On Thanksgiving, we made pizza and homemade pierogi, and the morning after, the three of us went for a nice run before starting our day.

There is so much more that I want to share, yet I don't want to write a book just yet.  We've still got thank you cards to write after all! ;)  I will post more about our wedding festivities in future posts, so please be sure to follow our blog!  If you aren't currently subscribed, please be sure to enter your email address in the "Follow By Email" box provided on the right side of this page so you will be informed of future posts relating to our wedding events and our journey as husband & wife in America's Finest City.

If you joined in on our wedding festivities and took your own pictures, PLEASE upload them to our Capsule if you haven't already - we'd LOVE to see our magical day from your perspective!

Until next time...

"I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine."
