Well, I'm a few days late in posting this- but I think I have a good excuse...right? haha! I had every intention of writing this while we were on vacation, but I just never seemed to have the urge to pull my computer out and start writing! Strange... huh?! While I do really love unplugging for a while- and enjoying time with my family- relaxing on the beach (duh!!) I love blogging and connecting too! I am going to really be working on blogging more of our personal lives and stories with you. Heaven knows there's plenty of Emmie stories to go around!
Anyways... back on topic here! This past Sunday, July 12th, Michael and I celebrated our 7 year anniversary! I know, I can't really believe it either! We really were such babies at the time!! It's crazy to see how much has changed since then, but then again, there's a lot that hasn't changed too!
Planning our own wedding was when I really started to be passionate about weddings and wanted to start photographing them! I planned our own wedding on a super budget, and did so many things DIY- before it was really cool to have a DIY wedding! I learned A LOT about wedding planning, and there's honestly not a lot I would change about our big day! I would say my biggest regret from my wedding day is not having a first look. I was SUPER nervous (all those people watching me all day! yikes!!) and I know that having a first look would have made me more excited instead! I walked down the aisle trying so hard not to cry that I ended up looking pissed off- and that is not very bridal! haha
We got married in Virginia Beach, VA- where both of our parents live! I loooooved my wedding dress- and still do! And love the bright summery colors with our outdoor wedding. And yes! I can't believe we got married outside... in July! But, I truthfully don't remember it being too hot- just a really fun day!!
