4 Years

Today is a very special day! Just four short years ago hubs and I met at the alter {or whatever you want to call it since we were outside} :). Looking through pictures to post for you today brings back a surge of wonderful memories. That day was so meaningful and oh so fun. I will never forget that day. I loved every second. I am one lucky girl.

Now I'm going to share a portion of what I wrote last year on our anniversary (apologies if you've already read it, but at the hour I'm scheduling this post... trust me, it's not going to get any better than this) . I can't believe another year has gone by already...

Today is October 19th.

Four years ago I...


...walked down the aisle with my Dad surrounded by family and friends...


to exchange vows with this handsome man...



Now reminisce a little with me as I remember... 

Getting ready...

Mom putting on my veil...

My sister and Erin...

All my bridesmaids (the best ever)...

Sarah Beth, Kristin, & Erin...

My grandmother's rosary (and my something blue)...

The boys...

And what they wore...

Goofing off with the groom...

Never a dull moment...


Ryan's Dad, my groom, & his brother

Toasting with my girls...

The beautiful ceremony site and the perfect weather...

Ryan's proud mother :)

My sweet grandparents (we miss you gpa)...

MOB and FOB...


Ryan and his Best Man/Brother walking down the aisle

Ceremony in motion...

It's official!

Mr. and Mrs!
The whole bridal party

Husband and Wife :)


We toasted...


Everyone danced...

Yup, everyone...

We photo oped

The boys did too...

Everyone had a fun time...

And most of all, we were (and still are) IN LOVE...

As the night was coming to a close...

Ryan gave an eloquent speech thanking our parents for all they have done and our guests for making this night so wonderful...


With glasses raised...


...it was time for an impromptu WAR EAGLE...

HEY!

And then we were off!


I look forward to many more years together!
I still feel like we were...
Just Married.

Happy Anniversary, Ryan! I love you lots and lots and always will.

  5. Happy Anniversary! Hope you guys are having a blast in Mexico!

    p.s.it's weird to see Paul in your wedding pics and then see him on the front page of usmagazine.com so strange.

    love you!

  8. Rachel! My something blue was also a blue rosary, but from my favorite church in Paris that Brian and I visited when we were dating. Happy anniversary to a super fun couple :) Even though, I am pretty sure Ryan and Brian are wishing they were married to each other.
