On one particular night I was thinking back on the past few months of my life, I wrote some of my thoughts on love in a journal…I’m amazed by love. I have been hurt by it. Healed by it. Broken by it. Inspired by it, and now I live for it. Aaron also had his fair share of ups and downs and I still have no explanation as to why a British boy and a small town American girl found each other. Maybe it really is as simple as some things are meant to be, but I do know this…Love is real. It exists. It isn’t always perfect, because life isn’t perfect, and people aren’t perfect, but saying I do to the love of my life on a beautiful October day couldn’t have been more perfect. Love is awesome and marriage is the best and I am so lucky to be married to someone who makes me laugh uncontrollably and truly is the better half of me. Happy one week of marriage to us!

P.S. A post of our wedding day will be coming soon so keep an eye out!

My good friend Jared Fadel is the genius behind the camera and captured these moments behind our first look. He is so amazing at capturing real emotions and really telling a story. I highly recommend him to anyone. Check out his work here!
