The day I told the world that I'm spending the rest of my life with my ultimate love, best friend, hero, deepest confidant and fellow dreamer...
Sam and I got married in the mountains of North Carolina, in the woods, surrounded by a ton our of friends and family. It was awesome. We totally gutted a horse barn and transformed it into a story book wedding party! We even had a film crew from Women's Entertainment Channel there filming it! Ha! (In the hunt for my wedding dress we were approached by them and asked to be featured on their new TV show called "Girl Meets Gown." A reality show about girls and their hunt for "the" dress. After hearing about what we were planning and hearing our story, they decided to fly out and film the whole shebang.) It was fun and made everything all the more crazy cool.
My dad married us and here is announcing the soon coming kiss. It was our second kiss. Samuel first kissed me in Jerusalem the day after we got engaged. (That is another story in and of itself. He flew over there secretly and proposed to me on the beach... I'll tell that story later. ) ;)
We really didn't want a formal wedding...it's just not us. We didn't want a traditional ceremony either. We wanted to seem like everyone just showed up to enjoy this awesome moment in the woods. We had a huge bonfire after the reception where we had a drum circle playing as we danced and sang well into the night!
Here are a few highlights from our wedding including a vid that kinda sums it all up.
Being married to Samuel has been the biggest blast of a joy! More than I could have ever dreamed of. Our love for each other is truly defined by an unlimited amount of wonder we have in each other and selfless adoration. It's a dream. Now, we have a little walking (or soon to be crawling, I should say) story book of our love to cherish on top of all that goodness! Life is wonderful.
My man woke me up as I lay passed out in bed with our little boy conked on my chest. He brought me a huge omelet, sliced fruit, roses and dark chocolate. (my fav.) He is my dream and I'm so in love with him.
