Wedding Photos - Has it really been 5 years?

Tomorrow, Mark and I will celebrate our fifth anniversary. I can hardly believe that it has been that long. It feels like just yesterday. I know I will be be so busy tomorrow trying to get all of my work done before our celebration dinner, so I thought I'd share some pictures from our wedding today while I have a minute.

My sister and my dad helping me out of the car as we arrived at Holy Name.

My cake which tied together our color scheme of chocolate brown and hydrangea blue

My friend and college roommate, Heather, sang At Last for our first dance.  We were cheering her on...

Ahhhh... So this is love

Happiness is...

The Sig Eps serenaded me with the Little Sis song.

Off we went in our carriage

Towards the start of a wonderful life together

When I look at these pictures, it takes my breath away.  That was truly the most wonderful night a girl could ever ask for.  My parents were so gracious and amazing to provide Mark and me with the memories you can only dream will be your own.  I am thankful everyday that Mark chose me.  It has been such a joy to spend my life with him.  Although I try to celebrate our marriage everyday simply by remembering to be kind and warm and loving to him, it is nice to take a moment each year to really stop and remember that we made a choice to go on our life's journey together.  What a journey it has been!  I can't wait to keep celebrating!
