Why We Waited
It wasn't an easy decision, I'll tell you that.
Matty and I have been married for almost 3 months and though we've had the majority of our wedding photos for awhile now, we've been guarding them carefully. Partly because I have been advised to avoid spamming Instagram by my dear husband (and though I agree with him, can I just say how dang hard it was to not flood my feed with fluffy white-ness), but mostly because I wanted so desperately to use this platform to share the details of a day that was so magical to us.
We received our photos long before All the Delights was ready to go and for half a second I thought, "Forget it, let's just make a Facebook album," but I have to say, I'm really happy we waited.
During the time in between we've poured over these photos with our families and reminisced with laughter and a few tears, housing our wedding day in sweet conversations and memory. Until now, it's been just ours - our happy day in our corner of the world that belonged only to us and our family & friends. It's been a sweet time, really, to just let the day settle in. It's reminded me that our wedding was about me and him coming together in marriage...and not about revealing a dress on Instagram.
So now that I've adequately learned my lesson, I'm excited to finally share our day! I've felt a bit overwhelmed at where to begin, so let's just keep it simple and start with my favorite moments that I've kept so close these 75 days.
There's a lot more to come for the Marry chapter. In addition to more of our favorite photos, I'll be sharing all the DIY tricks we learned, chatting about wedding party fashion and gifts, sharing about how to keep the sentiment the day, and even doing a few "Pinterest vs. Real Life" comparisons. That one's going to be fun...and brutally honest.
