Yesterday we celebrated our one month anniversary with a relaxing morning, some extra time together in the afternoon, and an evening out for a fancy cocktail and appetizer date at Theo’s. We finished off the day by watching our wedding video and drinking tea, and it was the perfect end to a lovely holiday. And, in the same spirit, I’m going to do a series of posts to catch up with all of the festivities of late that I’ve been so bad about posting on here: graduation, the wedding, the honeymoon. I’ll start with a little Instagram series I made up — #weddingweek — leading up to the day of the wedding. Just a few captured details that would have ordinarily flown by without documentation, but I’m so glad I caught them. Next I’ll do a post about the honeymoon, as we’re still waiting on some of our wedding photos.
Until then, enjoy a taste of my life the week before the wedding — I was alternately a weepy, angsty mess and a glowing bride-to-be.
