Two Years Ago

Two years ago, I married the hubs. It was our dream wedding. We had 45 of our family and friends go to The Bahamas with us to celebrate. Here is the wedding ceremony:



After the wedding:



Here is our cake. We had gone to Sweden the year before, visited the hubs' family, and I fell in love with these Dala horses:



We hired an amazing band, and we danced all night. It rained during the reception (note the hubs' wet and rolled up pants), but we didn't let silly rain interrupt our plans - it didn't rain at all during the ceremony:



I wish we were back in The Bahamas, but we have plans to return with some of our guests for our 5-year anniversary. I had such a good time that day, we did exactly what we wanted to do, and we had the best wedding I have ever been to! But none of the stuff like the flowers and the chairs and the band really mattered - all I wanted to do was marry the hubs, and that was the best part.

  8. Happy anniversary! I love your thoughts on the wedding. Many people lose sight of the truly important things in a wedding/reception- marrying your best friend and being with people that are important to you.

  14. Happy Anniversary! What a wonderful time you must have had. We had a destination wedding, nothing as nice as the Bahamas, but it relieved so much stress. The only thing we regret is not having a "real" reception with dancing and a cake. So glad you are planning a trip back!
