Six years ago tomorrow, I married my best friend. I've blogged about it again and again and again, so I'll keep this brief. I had this grand idea of embedding video clips from our wedding into this post, except that either flickr or blogger or possibly both hate me and no matter how I tried, the videos will not load, even though they load just fine in flickr. After fighting with blogger and you tube, I finally came to the realization that the internet hates me, so I am just providing links to the clips which inexplicably work just fine on flickr. I hope you will click!
My favorite part of our ceremony is still the part where he kissed me. At our rehearsal, the pastor even said, "You can kiss better than that!" when Shane kissed me like you'd kiss your grandma. And then the next day, after spending months saying he was just going to give the briefest of pecks, because he was so not into kissing me in front of everyone, he didn't want to stop kissing me. It was sweet and awesome and I can't ever watch this part in our wedding video (recorded by my Uncle David with a very old camcorder... so not professional videography, but I love it) without a huge smile forming on my face.
And bonus? I discovered part of our reception on the video, with a little snippet from after we fed each other cake. Cake face smashing is so not my thing, but after we daintily fed each other bites, I turned to the photographer and said, "I can eat this now, right?" He laughed and said, "Yes, you get to eat your cake." As you'll see, I then proceed to shovel a gigantic bite into my mouth. This is how I eat all desserts, all the time. Doesn't matter if I'm wearing a wedding gown or yoga pants.
It's been an amazing almost six years. It's hard to believe that we've done so much, yet still have so much more ahead of us.
