{a home in the making} anniversary, no. 3

Friends, today we, as in the two of us pictured above, turn THREE! That's right, three years ago we got married on a beautifully rainy fall evening. And it was perfect. Not only am I completely type A (read: ocd), but I also have an event planning background. The combination made for a wedding that I absolutely loved. Even to this day there is only one thing I would change, and it's a very minor point. I was thoroughly prepared for the wedding, and it was truly beautiful evening.

Being married though, is nothing like what I expected. It's better :). I am so thankful everyday that I married Chris because he is my perfect compliment. When I'm freaking out, he's calming. When I'm taking on too many things, he reminds me that I need to relax and recharge too. When I'm feeling completely lazy and anti-social, he reminds me that our friends are awesome and that I actually feel energized after hanging out with them. We've had our ups and downs, but through it all I like him and love him more today than I did three years ago when I said *i do* at our perfect party. I think we're off to a good start :).

To celebrate, this week I'm going to take you on a behind-the-scenes look at our wedding! I've never shown our wedding here on the blog, and we incorporated some fun diy elements that I know you'll love, and maybe be a little inspired by :). I'll even tell you the one thing I'd change if I could go back and do it again. Tomorrow, we'll talk about colors schemes, themes and collateral. All super fun stuff!


  1. Happy 3rd anniversary!! I can't wait to see more about your wedding :)

  2. It was a beautiful, perfect evening. One of the best weddings I ever had the pleasure of being a part of. Congratulations on your 3 year anniversary! May you have many more beautiful, happy memories.
