One Year Ago…

One year ago today, Stephen and I were out in California, finalizing things, greeting guests and feeling more excited than ever before about our wedding on June 4, 2010. Now, nearly a full year has gone by, and I can’t believe how much my life has changed.

Back then, I was a bride blogger and congressional aide dreaming about the future. Today, I’ve already been married a year to my best friend, and am living my new dreams of coordinating weddings, being a wedding blog editor, and earning my master’s degree.

Things change, but one thing that never will is how happy I felt on that day and in the days leading up to it – a feeling I’ve never experienced at any other time in my life and probably never will again, at least not in the exact same way.


This weekend, Stephen’s planning a special surprise for me, which I can’t wait to blog about next week! In the meantime, here’s a short recap of reception highlights from our wedding video, which some of you may have seen already, but which still make me smile every time.
