Once upon a time...
Austin and I met on our first day of college in Lincoln, NE at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I was the roommate of one of his classmates from high school, so he was just stopping by to say "hi" after he got all moved in. As time progressed through our first semester of college, and we were taking classes together we started to become friends. Our paths had started to cross more and more, and finally he asked me out on a date for Valentines Day. So, we went to the movie,Valentine's Day, on February 13th 2010, it was a very simple yet amazing first date, and I knew then he was the one for me :).
We have been through some ups and down's during our time together, but they have made us stronger than ever. The past few years we have become inseparable, and have learned a lot from one another. Then, on November 23, 2012, Austin took me to a restaurant on the river, and surprised me with a horse and carriage ride to look at the Christmas lights of downtown Omaha. This is where he proposed to me, and made me the happiest girl in the world to get to marry my best friend and the love of my life. So, of course I said, YES :) In August, it was 4 years from the first time we ever saw each other and I couldn't think of a better time for us to say " I Do".
August 10th, one of the best days of my life. I got to marry such an amazing guy, with all of my family and friends by our side.
Our Wedding Party, was full of our close family and friends. That helped our special day go perfectly! From college friends, to high school friends, to family, we couldn't have found better people to stand by our sides.
I mean seriously, what would I do without these girls?? I probably would be saying "I Do" with lipstick on my teeth!
We were extremely lucky to have such a beautiful day to be married on! Everything went smoothly, from the ceremony to the reception it was all more than I could ever ask for.
Then, our wedding day ended with an amazing celebration with everyone by our side....
Our day was filled with some memorable moments; like our best man's and my maid of honors speeches, which left me in tears! :)
I had my something "New", something "Blue", but I was missing something "Old". So, my grandma surprised me with the most amazing gift and gave me my something "Old" to wear on my wedding day, it was a beautiful locket with a picture of my grandpa in it. My grandpa was a very important person in my life, but he had passed away my Junior year of high school and it was so hard not to have him there on my wedding. I miss him everyday, but thanks to my grandma he was able to be by my side for my entire wedding day!
Finally, our first dance as Husband and Wife was like we were the only ones in the room, and was the perfect start to our marriage.
Now, we have been Mr & Mrs for almost 4 months now and I couldn't be happier!! :)
Thank you again to everyone!!! It would not have been the same without each and every one of you! Love you all! <3
