Getting married…

Tomorrow, I am getting married! It’s so crazy now thinking about our own wedding, and weddings in general … what we all do to celebrate marriage in America and all over the world. But in the end it’s truly one of the best and only opportunities in life to follow a few rituals and traditions we choose, and gather all our friends and loved ones together. Thank you so much for reading about all of our event progress, I really appreciate it so much – all the lovely notes and comments, so amazing and thoughtful.

We aren’t taking our honeymoon for a while, so I’ll still be updating Feather Factor. I’m normally not a sappy or PDA person but today am definitely feeling the lovey dovey vibes – so highly encourage you all to hear your favorite quotes or songs about love in the comments!

    I think the best part of weddings is that they actually are an opportunity to bring together all your loved ones as you have said…. Dont expect everything to be flowless, dont bother the minor mishaps or so and most important: enjoy every second!!!!oh and one more thing: have your wedding photos taken outdoors:)Cheers and congrats:)

    Congratulations! I'm so happy for y'all! You look absolutely gorgeous in your pics. You should do more pics w/o sunnies on!

    I hope tomorrow is everything you dreamed it would be!

    My favorite quote goes something like…
    "Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow.
    Don't walk behind me, I may not lead.
    Just walk beside me and be my friend."

    I love it because it illustrates what I think a marriage should be – equality. No one is leading or following, but you're doing it together as partners. Happy weekend! πŸ™‚

    Congratulations! I'll share with you a bit of advice that was shared with me on my wedding day: Be sure that you and your husband take a moment to step back and enjoy the love that is in the room. There will never be another opportunity where all of your family and friends are in one place, and celebrating you. It's truly an amazing feeling and is so wonderful. Enjoy your day! Hope to see pictures!
