Nostalgia {Our Wedding}




A little less than two years ago around this time, I had the biggest summer and fall ahead of me. I was about to marry the man of my dreams in August, have my dream wedding, and my bridal showers and bachelorette parties were around the corner.
Days were spent emailing friends, family members, organizing, planning, shopping, and more planning. Lately, I've been reminiscing on those times and how happy, anxious, and excited I was for everything we had been planning for, to finally come together.
That summer was by far the best summer I've ever had. I remember coming home from work and having countdowns with Billy, and of course practicing "our dance" in our family room. I remember coming home from my bridal showers and recaping every little bit to Billy and he was in awe of all the heartfelt and wonderful gifts that were now taking up space in all of our guest bedrooms and kitchen.
 These were special times I will never, ever forget.

This August, we will be married for 2 years, and I can't help but want to go back to that summer and do it all over again.
Marrying Billy was by far the best decision I've ever made in my life and I would marry him over and over again every summer, if I could. ...What do you think, babe? ;)
What parts in your life do you feel nostalgic about?

...In an attempt to fill this void I'm having, I'm going to take a trip back by sharing some pictures from some of my bridal showers, bachelorette party, and big day in a couple of posts here and there in the next couple of weeks. Looking at the pictures just reminds me of how much love was in the room that day. It was perfect for Billy and I, and that's all that mattered.













yeah, this happened...










Next post will have more wedding pictures... like these gems.
Two of my favorites. :)

  12. Katie, I'm so glad you shared this today! I'm getting married July 7th and I've been planning for 10 months now...as it gets closer (and planning becomes more overwhelming) I find myself thinking "I can't wait for this all to be over" Reading this makes me realize this time is going to be over before I know it and is something I will look back on and cherish forever. Thank you for reminding me to take a step back and soak it all in while I can!!
