Our First

Today is our 1st wedding anniversary!

Last year, we finally decided to "do it!"
We gave ourselves 8 weeks to pull off an intimate & quaint wedding with only close family in attendance...
and it was perfect!

You see, we've been together since I was 16.  
On November 1st of this year, we will actually be celebrating our 15th anniversary...

In the past 15 years, we have been through everything TOGETHER
We became a true family when  Memphis was born, and our family feels complete since welcoming Ruby.

Although we considered ourselves "married" in every sense... legally, we weren't.  
But that didn't really bother us.
We loved each other and had been together as ONE longer than some people are married.
But it just felt like the right time.

And it was amazing & truly special to have our little ones standing there with us on our special day.

It was a beautiful Fall day, and everything went off without a hitch.
It was exactly what we had envisioned.
I would do it all over again!

Here we are celebrating our 1st & 15th in the same year!
How cool is that!?
Love you, sweetie!
