10 Years
Woohoo! We've made it 10 years! I never thought that it was possible to love someone more each day... but my sweet husband has shown me that it is possible.
I thought I'd take you through just a quick rundown of our wedding...
All of our engagement pictures were taken by my mom... the header is one of them that I really REALLY loved... I also liked this one...it's not that fuzzy in real life... my scanner isn't the greatest....But, I was overruled. Hubby and my Mom liked this one... I hated it. Still do. The tree makes it look like I've got horns and my overall strap is falling off because my SWEETIE tried to pull me up into the tree by said strap. That was a fun wedgie moment....
We were married on January 16th in the Idaho Falls temple... wait... who in the world gets married in IDAHO in JANUARY?? There was a terrible storm that day... what were we thinking?Most people love their wedding photos... I was so disappointed with ours. The photographer said she was going to use a "soft lens". I had no idea what that was, so I said, "Sure - whatever". All the photos they took look like a fog moved into the reception area... :S The ones my mom and family took are great, but the "professional pictures".... sigh... these are the best two... Man! We were so little... ANYWAY... my Grammy has a tradition for the brides of our family. You see, she used to decorate for weddings. Most of the things used for my reception came from her vast store of lovelies. And so, she has tons of flowers from every era you can imagine. So, as you may suspect, some of those flowers are hideous. Enter the Grammy Bouquet:
We were nice with the whole cake thing... that's what happens when you have to rent your dress and tux... Our friends love us... they trashed my car and then toilet papered my parents house. Remember... this is JANUARY.
And it's all been sunshine and roses since then. Okay, so, maybe that's a little fib. We've had our ups and downs, but honestly, I wouldn't have it any other way!
P.S. - the song playing is actually "OUR" song... aww... aren't we cute ;)

I have to say, you are CRAZY to get married in January, in IDAHO. LOL! I was just in Idaho this January, and it is FREAKISHLY COLD and those weird snow drifts.... let's not get started.

Congratulations!!! What a wonderful day to celebrate! Hope you're going off to do something fun, and here's to many, many more happy years.

Happy Anniversary!

I love the Idaho Falls temple. I think the setting is absolutely gorgeous--but it must have been so incredibly cold in January. What a fun memory though.

Congrats on your anniversary!!!! I also did not like my wedding pictures! The photographer did horrible! So I had them retaken a year and a half later. They turned out much better.
