Well, here I am, a married woman. I could NOT be happier, more fulfilled and more at peace with the fact that I have become one with the man who I love so much. It was literally so hard to not scream it from the rooftops in the weeks and days leading up to our private ceremony. As I mentioned in a prior post, some date conflicts came up with our proposed summer wedding and Rico’s summer work schedule, so we had to make some decisions. I am not going to lie, when we first found out that our summer wedding wasn’t going to happen (or it could have, if I was cool with Rico saying his vows over Face Time..lol) I was kind of sad because I had been planning, and imagining what I thought would be the “perfect wedding day.” I took a deep breath, and a few steps back and really forced myself to remember what was the most important. It wasn’t the venue, the flowers, the weather, the date, the dress, the other people (no offense, guys, we love you), but, it was about R and I, and our commitment to spend our lives together. After I brought myself back down to earth from that weird place that brides go to while planning their wedding (ugh, obnoxious), I just trusted in God that he would provide, if we followed what we knew was right and important…and OH, did HE ever!
To be honest, the day was so perfect. I cannot imagine our wedding day going any other way than it did. I cannot wait to tell you all the story of the day, the days leading up, and share some photos. But, for now, and the next week, I am just going to take in every moment of this first week of being Mr. & Mrs. I will be sure to post about ALL of the it, promise!
To our amazing friends who sent flowers to our honeymoon suite the night of our wedding, to our home the week and day of, chocolate covered strawberries in the mail (they were SO good), cards and notes- you have NO idea how much you all mean to us. You made us feel like legit, the most loved and celebrated people on earth. I owe literally so much to my friends and family. I love you guys so much.
