2 Years

Sunday, July 5, 2015

Today Stephen and I have been married for 2 years! I know this doesn't seem like a long time (it's not) but it's exciting to hit another milestone in our relationship. I'm kind of bummed that I wasn't blogging back when we were planning our wedding so I wanted to do a small "recap" of everything for my memories.

We decided to get married on July 5th for a number of reasons: 1. Stephen's birthday is July 3rd 2. my birthday is July 9th 3. we'll always remember the date because of July 4th 4. my parents were married on the 4th 5. this was the only time our venue was available for a few weeks. So basically, we'd have a big blow out for our birthdays/anniversary every year.

Thankfully, the weather that day was fantastic - it rained in the morning (good luck ;)) but it cleared out plenty before the ceremony. It was a perfect Florida summer day and wasn't too hot which was great because our cocktail hour was on a covered patio.

We wanted all the guys to wear Sperry's because Stephen and I met over Sperry's (plus I'm weird about everyone matching lol)

We decided to do a first touch instead of a first look and I'm so glad we did!

The place where we had our reception is known for their homemade kettle corn so we got individual bags for our favors

We had the best day ever and loved celebrating with all of our friends and family! It's hard to believe that this was 2 years ago. We've definitely learned a LOT within the last 2 years and we love each other more and more every day.
