...and walked up it a married woman.
After the ceremony, we laughed...
...and had cake*...
|*Actually, all but the top layer of cake is styrofoam. I didn't like buttercream frosting so we served cheesecake instead. We tried saving the cake and eating it on our first anniversary, but it was disgusting.
...and had fun hamming it up for the camera during our wedding dance (which was, inadvertently, Harry Potter-themed).
But we had no idea how much our lives would change in the span of 10 short years, or that we'd go from this:
We've done an incredible amount of growing, changing, and learning since our marriage, and I can't thank God enough for the incredible blessings He has given us during our journey. Without Him in our marriage, I fear it would have crumbled long before we reached this point. Our journey to Catholicism has made us stronger as individuals, but it's also made us infinitely stronger as "one flesh."
Here's to ten great years... and, God willing, many decades more.
