3 Years.

Our wedding rehearsal was a nightmare for me. I almost threw up during the rehearsal and felt sick throughout the whole dinner afterward. And I was in a horrific mood. I didn't want to see anybody, and did not want to be out at dinner whatsoever. I remember barely looking at the menu and picking out something randomly, just wanting to get it over with so I could go home and go to bed. I didn't want to make small talk, didn't want to think about the wedding, didn't want to be surrounded by family and in-laws.

My mom and sister were giving each other awkward smiles with panicky eyes over dinner, like, oh shit, she's going to be completely ballistic tomorrow.

I went home, ran on the treadmill, watched Anchorman, and went to sleep in my childhood bedroom, and I woke up on my wedding day feeling completely fine. Relief was evident on my family's faces as they hovered around chattering in high-pitched voices, making sure I wasn't going to have a nervous breakdown.

"You're the most relaxed bride I have ever seen!" the co-ordinator whispered when I was getting ready to head down the aisle.

Three years ago today, Peter and I got married. We took pictures outside in the leaves and it was freezing cold. I drank a lot of champagne and didn't eat enough, but somehow managed to avoid getting annihilated. I wore a dress from J.Crew (so comfortable) and had a million bobby pins stuck in my head (not comfortable). I didn't cry all day.

Happy anniversary, Pete! I love you more every day. xo

  1. Happy anniversary! Our wedding rehearsal was a nightmare for me too ~ our families didn't meet until the rehearsal, so I was a huge ball of stress! The same goes for the wedding. I keep telling Nathan I want a wedding do-over :D

    1. I can imagine that would be stressful! I was happy with how our wedding turned out but I think next time I'd do the rehearsal two days earlier and spend the day before the wedding hibernating because clearly I'm not in the right state of mind to be around other people.

  2. That's such a gorgeous picture Amy. What a beautiful moment.
