We did it! We are legally married in the great state of New York. I still cannot believe it. I keep saying it out loud. “Wow, we are really married.” It has been an amazing 7 years and I am so truly blessed. What an absolutely perfect way to celebrate 7 years together than to go and get married. I could not be happier. We have had an amazing trip to New York and we could not have done it without the help of so many people.
First I would like to thank Meredith for all she has done over the last 9 months of planning with me. She did all of the leg work to find the place we got married, the limo we used, the hotel we stayed at, and the salon we got our hair done at. Her husband, Mike, and his parents, Joan and Phil, have opened up their house to us and fed us and all our family and friends while we were up here. Their generosity and hospitality is so greatly appreciated. Thank you!
A big thank you to my mom for all she has done to help get us ready and looking beautiful. She did all of our dress alterations. This includes hemming my dress and adjusting the back train, hemming and bustling D’s dress, adding a back insert and tie up into my sisters dress, taking in my nephews pants and completely remaking baby J’s dress by combining two dresses I bought into one. She also made our ring pillow for us and put some bling on baby J’s shoes. Thank you for all you have done for us! I don’t know how we would have gotten it all done without you.
Thank you Kris for your help with the fish line hem on baby J’s dress and getting it back in the mail to us so fast. It looked amazing.
Thank you Salia for the beautiful flowers and awesome shoes you made for us. I know you spend hours and hours working to make our flowers just perfect. Thank you for putting up with me changing my mind over and over again and adding in additional flowers and colors to the mix. Thank you for the perfect shoes for our big day. I love them and they look exactly as I had hoped for. I don’t know anyone else who could have done what you have done for us and I know there is more to come.
Thank you Stephanie for all of our beautiful wedding pictures. You have such an amazing eye and I cannot wait to see what you do with the pictures. Thank you for keeping me calm and knowing how to use a curling iron under pressure. You always have my back and I am so grateful for all you have done.
Thank you to my sister and D’s brother for being our witnesses and part of our wedding. You guys are awesome and have always been there for us. The readings were beautiful.
Thank you to baby J and my nephew for being our flower girl and ring bearer. You two are so precious and adorable and I just love you both to pieces. You guys were so good during the ceremony and the entire weekend.
Thank you Genna and Chris for driving down to be there for us. It means so much to us that you would do that for us and be part of our special day. It was wonderful to catch up with you guys and spend time together.
Thank you Terry for the wonderful hotel for the week. It was perfect and we were very comfy. You are always there for us. The spending cash was great too.
Thank you Nikel for helping keep the home front under control while we were gone. It is greatly appreciated. You took a big worry off my shoulders knowing Terry would be taken care of while I was gone.
We are so blessed to have such a wonderful group of family and friends. We love and appreciate each and every one of you. Our wedding was perfect because you all helped make it that way. Each and every little piece and part made our special day one we will never forget.
