Happy Anniversary! (A Wedding Day Flashback)

Happy 4th Anniversary, Philip!  How has it already been 4 years since that special day?!

Reading the card Philip sent me before the wedding

Me and my sister

The girls

Flowers unite!

Love this picture

Me, my sisters, and my goddaughter
My aunt gave me her wedding dress.  I had a few alterations done to make it my own.  Isn't it beautiful?  What an awesome gift!

Lace detail and my shoes

I had to add another picture of the dress.  I felt like Cinderella!
Philip & the groomsmen

The dudes

Mom & all of my brothers escorting her

The entourage of ring bearers and flower girls.  Are they adorable or what?!

Talking with Dad, doing everything we can not to get too emotional before walking down the aisle. 
Locking eyes for the first time that day

We are gathered here today...

Handing off my bouquet to Philip so that I can wipe my eyes.  Our priest made us get emotional during the homily.

Receiving a crucifix for our home.  Here, it is being blessed by our priest.

You may kiss the bride
The ringbearers (my adorable nephews) were ready to party!

My family

My bouquet.  A friend from my sorority did all of the flowers.  Weren't they beautiful?

"Savor the Love" Life Savers for the guests

Our cakes with "The Best Day" Lladro statue from my grandparents in between

Cutting the cake

First dance

It looks like we're the only two in the room!

We had an 11:00 wedding and luncheon afterward.  After the reception, just the two of us went downtown in the limo while our family partied on at my brother's house. 

We took a bunch of pictures downtown

We had so much fun walking around in the dress & tux.  We received a lot of well-wishes and cheers from people walking by.


This picture was taken in a beautiful building downtown

If you can't have an exorbitant amount of public displays of affection on your wedding day, when can you?!

Looking at Philip across the passageway

Champagne toast at dinner as husband and wife.
It was a beautiful day, and things have only gotten better since.  We are so blessed to have such wonderful friends and family to share in these last four years!  Here's to many, many more!
