This is my husband. Its a honor to be married to him, to get to experience life with him, to see things differently because of him. In just one year of marriage we have experienced incredible things together; some scary, some sad, and some completely joyous. I have been grateful for every minute of it because it has brought us closer together in ways I could never imagine. Not to mention he turned me into a morning person, something I didn’t think was ever possible.
These are our wedding photos taken by our talented friend John Pope. He was kind enough to allow me to edit them myself (the closest you can get to being the photographer at your own wedding, I suppose). The best part about our wedding day was that it felt so wonderfully normal. Nothing was over sensationalized. I put on my dress and zipped it up and that was that. I wore my normal amount of makeup. Tyson didn’t wear a tie. Its not hard for me to go back to that day and remember the feeling of it because it felt so true to who we are. I’m so happy to finally be able to share some of these moments with you.
One of my favorite details of the day was the music. Whenever I listen to that list of songs it brings me right back to that warm day on the farm, walking down the aisle to my soon-to-be husband with a mix of nerves and excitement floating around inside of me. And It also reminds me of how awkward our first dance was! We had never practiced before and turns out neither of us really knew what we were doing… And like any wedding we had things that went wrong but none of those things ended up mattering.
What mattered was that we were married; we vowed to love each other, be devoted to one another, and to commit our marriage to God. And then we partied and got the heck out of there.
