i married my best friend

I guess I’m getting personal this week…

wedding photos

On a moody and overcast June day (a year ago from today), Dave and I got married. As I walked down the grassy path the wind rustled the leaves and the gray sky looked beautiful and peaceful. Everything after that flew by as if to take place within a moment. It was spectacularly fun to salsa dance to the live Cuban band, eat cupcakes that my mom baked with handmade chocolate roses, watch the slideshow I prepared of our childhood photos through the present (did I ever mention that we discovered only two weeks prior to the wedding that we were in the same daycamp group in 1983? We found a photo of us standing next to each other with 80’s hairstyles, we didn’t know we’d met 23 years before our wedding), the funny video Dave prepared, and drink mojitos in the company of everyone we love. We did not have a formal wedding photographer. We just had our friends snap shots and upload them to a flickr group. I have to make a blurb book that will stand in as a wedding album. It’s such a daunting job. I swear, I’ll get to it this summer. Really, I must. This is our one year anniversary so I’m a little delayed needless to say. This year has been a ball. Dave and I have so much fun together, truly he is my best friend (and webmaster).
