It was a lot of fun, I’m so glad we decided to have a laid back wedding that was (almost!) stress free. It was a pretty exhausting day so we were relieved when it was all done and an entire week at the beach lay ahead of us. Although I do wish I could go back and enjoy the party as if I were a guest, the whole day flew by so fast!
Two years ago, Steven and I got married! I thought I would share some more photos from our wedding.
You can see more on my post from last year, where I wrote all the details about the day.
We got married in my Mom’s lovely Victorian house, and made all of the decorations.
We had a small ceremony in the morning. Steven’s brother got ordained for the event and married us.
After the ceremony it was time for some breakfast, and to rest up and get ready for the huge party in the evening. We invited everyone we knew!
And the best part was… All the food!
All the cheese you can imagine
Talking to my mom and my aunt afterward
It was fun but it all went by in a blur. I wish I could go back and enjoy it as a guest.
August first was the five year anniversary of our first date, which was also my first time trying sushi.
So it’s a tradition to always get sushi on our anniversary! This year a new buffet opened up in town that had a fresh sushi bar, so we had to check it out.
It was delicious and I tried every piece of sushi they had.
They also had delicious mint mousse for dessert that I am still thinking about..
After we napped off our food coma, we took a trip to Pilot Mountain in hopes of walking off some of the junk we ate that day.
It was a lot of fun, and I can’t wait to see what year six holds!
Today is our first wedding anniversary!
We always knew we wanted a casual, un-traditional wedding, more like a big fun party than anything else. We didn’t want to make our guests sit through a long ceremony, and than wait even longer to eat boring finger foods. This way our guests could start partying and pigging out as soon as they got there on all kinds of stuff, including hot wings, stroganoff and all the cheesey treats you can imagine!
We choose my Mom’s lovely house and yard as the location and invited everyone we knew. We had the ceremony in the morning with just a few family members around, then had a delicious brunch and got ready for the big party later in the day.
To make me laugh in this photo he said “I just imagined Cloud in a bikini… :/”
(Any guesses as to what my favorite color is??)
My mom spent months preparing her house and yard for the big day and everything turned out so well, way better than I could have imagined! You should check out some of the other events she has put together here.
One whole room was dedicated to desserts and treats and another was dedicated to the food! (See more photos of the dessert room here, I didn’t want to overwhelm everybody with too many pictures!)
My only regret is that I didn’t get to stand right here the entire night and pig out on all this CHEESE.
The backyard was transformed into a magical land! My out of town family members arrived the day before and we worked into the evening to create this lovely scene.
