February 18 was our six month wedding anniversary! I cannot believe it has already been six months! It seems like yesterday that Justin proposed in Mexico, and now, we are already half way to our first anniversary! We didn't even finalize our wedding album until a few weeks ago. I know, slackers...but I am telling you, time flies when you're having fun! I am in LOVE with our wedding album. It is gorgeous! We should be getting it any day now, along with a CD of our images, and I cannot wait to flip through it and re-live the day (and share more photos). Investing in a great photographer was one of the best decisions we made planning the wedding - it is not a place you want to pinch some pennies! In fact, we actually switched our photographer a few months before our wedding, and I am so happy we did. There are so many other places in a wedding budget that are flexible, but photography is just not one of them. The day flies by so fast, and you are left with amazing memories. I am so glad I have photos of those memories that I absolutely love.
Our wedding day was everything we dreamed it to be. It was the perfect August day - clear blue skies and 75 degrees. Our reception was held at the beautiful and historic Dearborn Inn, founded by Henry Ford. We danced the night away with family and friends to a fantastic band, and our beloved Michigan State University mascot, Sparty, surprised our guests! The food was delicious, the decor was perfect and everything fell right into place - thanks to our amazing vendors. We had FUN! It was the perfect, storybook wedding. The best part of all, though, was marrying my best friend.
Given that it is a Monday and still "busy season" for us accountants, we did not do much to celebrate the half way mark. We just spent time together at home relaxing with some wine and our pup, Charlie, which was pretty much the best way to spend it.
