I have been so behind on blogs from weddings and recovering from MALS surgery that I realized I never wrote a blog about us getting married. The best day of my life!!
Matt and I have been together since 2018 and got engaged in 2019, due to covid we had to wait to get married. On Saturday, April 9th we said "I Do". It was amazing! So much happened to try to stop us in our place so many times but we held strong to the date and believed in our love and we made it! We got married.
It was honestly the best day of my life. I will say that over and over again. I made sure to get a celiac plexus block the week before so I could wear my dress without discomfort. I was able to stay in the dress all night even with eating food. It was the best! I changed an hour before we left to go home and was all smiles that my treatments worked so I could wear my wedding dress all day. It was the most beautiful dress I have ever worn. My mother and father purchased it for me along with the veil and it was the best present I have ever received.
We had the perfect dinner at Chart House in Scottsdale with our close friends and family. Our first dance was choreographed by Dance with Chad, Chad the owner. He worked with us and taught us the most beautiful first dance. Matt and I truly enjoyed working on our first dance.
Chart House was so kind to us and my old boss was there managing the night. She even cut our prime rib carving station! In heels! The entire day and night was just magical. The best was it ended with fireworks from a venue across the lake! The bride had got them for her wedding so we got fireworks for ours as well. It made the night so special!
Please enjoy photos from our photographer Mariel Jenny Photography. She captured such great moments for us. We are doing another shoot with her in November and can not wait!
Thank you to everyone who made our wedding come true.
