We Got Married!

It's official! We tied the knot! On June 30, 2007, eSuitor and I became husband and wife. It was a beautiful ceremony that I will forever remember, and I'm just so thankful! There is so much to share, and I imagine that I'll be blogging about it for days, but for now, let me leave you with a few of my favorite photos (taken by Lincee), along with my favorite bridal portrait.

For those of you who don't understand why in the world I'm wearing a winter wedding dress in the middle of the summer, there is a very special story about it that I wrote about here. (I added a special photo on that post, as well.) For those of you who have been asking me to show a photo of the dress, this is my favorite bridal portrait:

Just before the music swelled, my Dad told me to relish my walk down the aisle. "This is a very special wedding," he said. I agree...it was mine! I did enjoy my walk down the aisle, even though I was crying the whole way!


The wedding ceremony:



With my mom and sister (who was also my matron of honor--or "best girl", as she preferred to be called):


Our first dance. He sang to me as we danced (and stole a few kisses):

Cutting the ever so chocolate wedding cake:


Leaving the reception together. I took the overdress off halfway through the reception. The underdress was a strapless dress that could be worn alone:

Welcome home!!! I can't get over the fact that I first read about eSuitor here on your blog when you had gone on your initial first dates, and now, seemingly only a relatively short while later, you're married!!! Wow. Even if I hadn't gone to the wedding, I still would have felt a part of it just having followed the developments on your blog. I am so happy for both of you. You both look wonderful in the photos, and the dress is gorgeous. Can't wait to talk with you!

Also, don't know if you saw it yet, but I gifted you with a Rockin Girl Blogger Award, it's on my page, so when you get some time swing by to pick it up. Save the picture to your computer and then add it into your sidebar as a photo.


Best to you,

Scarlett & Viaggiatore

Awesome dress! Now comes the dilemma...what do you do with a dress you can only wear once?

Congratulations! Enjoy the funniness that is marriage.

Susan said...

Okay, anyone else suffering withdrawals? lol WhatEVER could they be doing that would keep her from the important task of updating her blog??? :)
