Oh, they say when you marry in June,
You're a bride all your life.
And the bridegroom who marries in June
Gets a sweetheart for a wife.
Winter weddings can be gray
Like a Christmas holiday.
But the June bride hears the song
Of the spring that lasts all summer long.
By the light of the silvery moon
Home you ride, side by side
With the echo of Mendelssohn's tune
In your hearts as you ride
For they say when you marry in June,
You will always be a bride.
(From Seven Brides for Seven Brothers)
I cannot believe that almost 1 year ago (6/20/09) Eric and I tied the knot. Wow time has flown! That was such an amazing day for both of us and we had the best time with all our family and friends. Here are a few random snapshots from our big day!
I love looking at our wedding pictures (I have a some of our wedding pictures in various places in the house) and remembering everything from that day. It went by so fast that it is nice to think back about those fun memories. I can remember feeling so anxious/nervous right before the church doors opened and I walked down the aisle. Good thing my dad was there, if he isn't calm cool and collected then I don't know who is. Once I saw Eric's face waiting for me, all I could feel was so incredibly happy and blessed!
My dad, or dad-o as I call him, is a pretty funny guy. I guess this fits in nicely since Father's day is also this weekend.
There are so many things I loved about our big day besides marrying the man of my dreams of course (duh!). I loved my dress and especially the fun bow with the broach. I think I may put on my dress again this weekend and wear it every place I go just around the house for a bit, I mean what fun is an amazing dress you only get to put on once right? I especially love the way Eric looks in a tux too! I loved the atmosphere of our reception country club- one big open room ballroom with gorgeous windows overlooking a golf course and a large dance floor. Eric and I love dancing and we actually got to dance a lot. People had said we wouldn't get to eat or dance very much but we made sure to! All of our guests seemed to enjoy the dance floor so that was great. I loved the flower buckets my mom made filled with blue hydrangeas (swoon!) that lined the church aisle and were also on some tables at the reception. I loved my earrings that my mom and I designed and made. I loved how Keith, Eric's brother, made me laugh during the best man speech at his funny comments. We loved spending time with our close friends and family and seeing everyone so happy!
So many great memories that I hope I never forget anything about that day! Happy 1st anniversay to Eric and I!
