This day last year, on the most beautiful fall evening, surrounded by friends and family and our children, Matt and I married each other. After 8 (now 9) years together, the ceremony was less about promises and more about honoring what already was...deep respect, acceptance, mad love, and the joy of sharing it and solidifying it with our people in that season of our life.
We wanted the day to feel laid back and easy and it truly was. Our bridal party was all family (my sisters and niece/ Matt's brothers and dad). Everything was held at the Art Institute here in Dayton. A string quartet played The Cure and Phosphorescence. We snacked on hors d'oeuvres, a macaroni and cheese bar, almond and apricot cake, and macarons. There was lots of dancing (our first dance was to Beauty by The Shivers), and we ended the night just the two of us at a Taco Bell drive thru in our suit and dress. 

Perfect day with just the happiest memories. Definitely worth the wait. 
Happy anniversary, lover guy!
