we did it!! danny & i tied the knot this past saturday on the beach in cape may, nj! i had been having slight panic attacks leading up to the day thanks to the weather reports saying it was going to rain all day long… (just what a beach weeding needs) but! it ended up being gorgeous… well, the first part of the day anyway. our ceremony began at 12:30 pm and the rain started 5 minutes after it ended (they say that’s good luck, right?! – or maybe they just say that to bride’s to help with their emotional state, who knows… either way, it was perfect!).
it was everything we had envisioned the weekend [and day] to be… surrounded by all of our family and closest friends, spending the entire weekend together celebrating… it was great. barefoot on the beach with an acoustic guitar playing some of our favorite songs surrounded by the people we love most, my two favorite girls at the last minute walking me down the aisle, and danny writing the most beautiful vows… it was very, very special. we had our reception at the seasalt restaurant and they really did the most fabulous job! the food was ah-mazing, the ambience and location was just what we had wanted.
i found myself reflecting on the ride home as the kids were passed out in the backseat at just how lucky i am and how much i didn’t want the weekend to end. from pool days, to walks on the beach, sleepovers with the girls practically assaulting me in their sleep, all the love that our family and friends made us feel by their generosity and kindness all throughout the weekend, to marrying my very best friend… does it get any better than that? so, i will count every rain drop as luck and be thankful every day for this wonderful family of mine and for my danny… the love of my life.
at the reception my sister handed me my cell phone, i was confused because i had purposely left it in the hotel room. she explained that adriana insisted she bring it because i would want to take pictures… (i swear that little nugget knows me best!!) … so after an hour or so i whipped out the phone and seemed to go on a selfie mission! so thank you, my little nana (and seesha!) for bringing my phone and allowing me to capture moments of the day… dan’s dad flew in from tucson, arizona for the wedding and was also our photographer… so me being able to take a few shots of my own bought my new father in law a little extra time without my harassing him for the pictures!
here is a glimpse of our perfect wedding weekend… i feel so so blessed and thankful to be married to the most wonderful man. i love you danny, and i love love our beautiful family. xo
