My hubby and I have been married for three years today. I can’t believe how fast the time has gone since we were in my home town of Northfield, Minnesota, welcoming all our family and friends from near and far. Right now we were hoping the rain would hold off, pondering whether we ordered too many cases of beer, and rushing to the mall to pick up Ian’s second wedding suit after he left his on the airport bus at LAX (whoopsy daisy). Those moments – the small ones just as much as the big ones – were filled with so much excitement and emotion and we love to relive them each year. It was the best day of our lives, and even then we had no idea just how well we fit together.

  1. Congrats! It’s three years for us in August!

  2. I can’t believe it’s been 3 years! What a wonderful weekend, I’m so happy that I could be a part of it!! Love you guys!

  3. I am COMPLETELY obsessed with your dress! Not sure if it is the Melissa Sweet, but when Priscilla of Boston went out of business I cried because I knew I couldn’t have that dress when I get married someday – I am a swiss dot addict. Absolutely gorgeous!

      Thank you so much! You inspired me to add a photo of the dress from the reception because it was so fun to tie the sash into a big bow in the front for that part of the day. :) And yes – it was the Dora by Melissa Sweet. So shocked and sad they went out of business!

  4. You looked stunning! And color me completely jealous – when I get engaged and start looking for a dress, I know I will still be mourning the loss of Priscilla. Happy anniversary!

  5. Oh, what a beautiful wedding! I love the subtle polka dots on your dress :)
