Two years ago…

Two years ago today I married my best friend on a plantation in the middle of Kentucky. We all stayed at the plantation for the weekend and I remember for weeks it hadn’t rained and when I woke up the morning of our wedding, it was pouring. We were supposed to be married under a big tree on the farm but plans were changed and we were married in the plantation’s carriage house. It was beautiful. I am glad that it rained now that I look back, because it was a very intimate and cozy-feeling kind of wedding. We’re heading back to the plantation this weekend to visit and I can’t wait! Married life is a beautiful thing. It is sometimes a hard thing. I think the Lord uses it to teach us, to mold us and shape us. It is something that reveals that not-so-lovely selfish part of me in so many ways and so many areas of life. I have learned to cook (as in spaghetti and boxed macaroni and cheese) and not shop quite so much :P If you would have told me years ago that I was going to be married at 19 (eek! I think I just gave away my age) I probably wouldn’t have believed you. But truthfully, I wouldn’t have it any other way. These two years have grown me, have blessed me, and I pray that the years coming will continue to do so. I am thankful to have others who we can look up to who have been married for much, much longer. What a blessing marriage is!

Happiest of anniversaries to you! It rained on our wedding day, and i remember being so disappointed but it actually gave us some beautiful photos. as are yours :)


Aww, happy anniversary!! God bless you both in your marriage. :) …and may I ask where you got your wedding dress, or what style is it? I absolutely love it!

Happy Anniversary!! It rained on our wedding day too, but I love how it made the pictures turn out. I got married when I was 18. Something I never thought I’d do, but when you know you know :) We’ve been married over 7 years now and I can’t imagine my life without my better half. Here’s to many more!!


I LOVE your pictures! I really like your dress – it keeps what I imagine was the feel of your wedding {judging from your description}. Happy anniversary, friend!

You were a beautiful bride!

I am so incredibly excited about running across your blog! My husband and I have almost been married for a year (October) and It was less than a month after I had turned 19. It was the easiest decision I have ever made and I feel God working on me through this wonderful marriage He has blessed me. To see another beautiful couple who did the same thing as I and are in such an incredible love makes my heart glow with joy! :) -Rheana

P.S. Your pictures are absolutely amazing and your taste in music is brilliant!
