Well, it’s been one month. One month since the Best. Day. Ever. I’ve mentioned how amazing our whole weekend was to just about anyone who asks. How loved we felt. How honored we were to have so many people travel to celebrate with us. I have so many favorite moments – from Jake leaning in and kissing me after I read my vows and everyone laughing (too early! not yet! ;), to my niece wandering in zig-zag lines down the (really long) aisle, to the wonderful words my new brother in law told me, to the sweetly protective words my (old) brother in law told to Jake, to seeing my dad speak so thoughtfully, the morning at the spa with my loves – there are so many more.
Sharing our photos was something I’ve been wanting to do. While some feel very personal, and it felt strange to share, they read like a story. I can feel the emotion in them. And I wanted everyone to be able to see and feel the story. Now, it would be impossible for me to post all of the photos I love. Because there are HUNDREDS. I’ve spent hours looking through them – and some that I LOVE were too big of a file size to post here. I love photography, and I love our photographers. So without further rambling, here is a sampling, our wedding story – in brief – captured by Becka and Nate Robinson. Please enjoy.
