Well we’re back from our very fast trip to VT and got A LOT of renovation done (you can follow it on my Instagram stories here) – and by we, I mean, mostly Andy. It was far from relaxing, but it did give my brain a much needed break from work and doom-scrolling Twitter (ha, kidding, I still did plenty of that) about COVID cases and my kids returning to school next week :( I feel like we’re in a really weird place right now with the pandemic, where Delta seems scarier than the previous variant, yet people seem to care EVEN LESS. I don’t even know what’s going on … I feel like I have an even smaller amount of information than I did this time last year with little, to no, good decisions or options. Like, I still can’t believe I am sending my kids to school THIS year, but I didn’t last year … but I don’t even have a virtual option in DC. Ugh – but instead of making this entire post about my kids’ school return + COVID + my stress levels, I’ll try focusing a bit more on beautiful couples & LOVE.
Our wedding day was epic, filled with love, joy and lots of laughter. We are blessed and grateful that we were able to celebrate our love with our closest family and friends, and finally begin our next chapter as husband and wife.
We said “I do” at the beautiful, magical and historic venue, The Mansion on O, a year later than our original wedding date, as we had to postpone due to the pandemic. When our wedding day finally came, it felt like a dream come true, and although it looked much different than we had originally planned, the day could not have been more perfect.
Lady H, the owner of the Mansion, and our officiant, conducted the most beautiful and personalized vow ceremony. She was really able to convey who we are as a couple, and made sure to honor and include my Dad in our vow ceremony. I know he was smiling down on me, as my brother walked me down the aisle, to “Crimson and Clover” by Tommy James & The Shondells. This was a magical moment, and one I will never forget.
We enjoyed watching our guests as they did the mansion tour, exploring & discovering the hidden doors, and posing for pictures. The chef was amazing, and all of the food was incredible. It was beautifully displayed and delicious. We really enjoyed the intimacy of the smaller reception, as we were able to connect and celebrate with each guest. We loved the speeches our friends and family gave, they were funny and touching. It was a day we will never forget, and cherish forever.
