Wedding Snippets: A Few Favorite Things

My wife (!!!) keeps asking me when and if I will be blogging about the wedding. It will happen, of course, but there is so much to say! I am still wrapping my head around it and processing the whole day. Each time we hang with another friend or family member for the first time after the celebration, we get a new thought or perspective on the experience. It’s been really fun to see our wedding through the eyes of those who were there with us. 

 One of the most magical parts of this super fresh newlywed stage is slowly digging through the WEDDING ROOM. If we are friends IRL you heard me *cough* complain *cough* about our 3rd bedroom that was turned into the catch-all for wedding stuff. We brought a ton of sentimental items to the wedding and I ordered a lot of stuff online (PTL for Amazon Prime) that needed a place to be gathered. Afterward, everything from the day went back to the room for proper storage until I could give it my dedicated time.

We have a little table in our living room where I have been displaying some special wedding items. Occupying the table, which I now have fondly dubbed as “The Shrine,” we have:

Larger-than-life Mozey painting I received as a shower gift

Mozey’s wedding day floral collar

Two orchids.

One a gift from our engagement, 

another a decoration from our Friday Night Ice Cream Social. 

A sign from my mom that reads “You will forever be my always” with our names and wedding date

A little stuffed unicorn from our wedding planner to remind us that we are each other’s unicorn

Our guestbook. 

A late-night online purchase that is kinda creepy, kinda awesome

Dia de los muertos brides, one in a suit, one in a dress! 

A gift from a bridesmaid and our ring bearer’s mom.

The most amazing crystal shaped like a heart, a wedding gift.

Heather’s wedding day boutonniere

A book of Rilke poems, from which Heather read to me on our engagement day

I will share more wedding goodness soon!
