One year

It’s been one year since I wore this white dress.

DSC_0111One year since I walked down the aisle on my brother’s arm.

DSC_0901One year since Bob and I gathered with our family and friends in this beautiful, old church, sun streaming through the windows.

DSC_0916One year since we said, “I will,” and “I do,” and exchanged our wedding rings.

_MG_3613One year since we sang a “Praise God from whom all blessings flow” and walked together down the aisle, beaming, out into that gorgeous, fall day. Husband and wife.

Revelry. I just love that word. It went on the bottom of our invitation. “Dinner and revelry to follow.” Revelry means “lively and noisy festivities,” and we loved every minute of ours.


DSC_0211_MG_3833_MG_3890To think, that beautiful, wonderful day was a year ago. That beautiful, wonderful day changed my last name, and blessed me with the man I’m privileged to call my husband. For better. For worse. Wouldn’t change a thing.


If you’re curious, we had a lot of help in making this day as great as it was. If you’re in their area, contact them for your wedding, party, or event. They were all wonderful!

  1. Well, I commented on this yesterday, but apparently it didn’t go through. Blech. I totally loved this post. Your wedding was so beautiful and you post is a lovely reminder. Happy Anniversary, friend!
