1 Year Wedding Anniversary!

I can hardly believe it’s been one year since our wedding day! So much has happened within a year that makes us so excited for the many years to come. Being in love with husband has grown me into a better person, and it’s because of his steadfast and unconditional love. I hope I’m growing to have the grace to be less selfish, more considerate, and always generous with love and kindness in our marriage.

For our anniversary, I would like to share one of my favorite memories of our wedding day: The First Look

One of our favorite moments of the wedding day was the first look. He stood with his back facing the altar, and as I walked down the aisle, I felt so happy that I get to marry him. Laughing and smiling, I tapped him on the shoulder, and I will never forget how he looked at me when he turned around. He was overcome with emotion and told me, “You are so beautiful.” We both started crying and hugging. Even as I am writing this, my husband leaned over and said, “I was overwhelmed with the thought that I have the privilege to spend the rest of my life with this amazing woman standing in front of me.” I remembered thinking that if the day had ended there, it would have already been perfect. We went on to have an awesomely fun wedding, thanks to our loving family, wedding party, and everyone who came to celebrate with us!

    these photos are so sweet and precious. What a wonderful moment captured. We also decided to see each other for the first time before the ceremony and it was a feeling of surreal happiness I didn't expect. It wasn't something I could know in advance until it happened but it was such a good feeling to see my husband and a feeling of surreal happiness I can't explain well enough.

    Happy Anniversary to you both!
