First year of marriage, Orange County

I can't believe it's been one year since this day! It was truly a whirlwind of so many memories. Justin and I didn't live with each other prior to being married so it was so exciting to start a new chapter after saying "I Do." I thought for sure there would be things I would go nuts over but so far, nothing! Well.. he does leave the toilet seat up but I guess if that's the only thing I can't complain! It has been the best year daily learning more about each other. Taking every chance we get to travel and spend time with friends and family. While posting these photos I couldn't help but reminisce. With that being said, some things came to mind. Advice for you couples getting married! One, if you're working with Pure Lavish Events you have nothing to worry about! My wedding day was PERFECTION! Of course I'm OCD and even I was anxious, but there a was a point in the morning where McKenna and Kevin came up to me and I looked at them and felt so at ease and knew I could let go and enjoy. Please, brides ENJOY your wedding day. It goes by so quickly, soak up every minute from getting ready with your bridesmaids to the last dance of the evening. If it's in your budget go with a videographer. I was SO nervous walking down the aisle seeing Justin for the first time I don't remember a thing about the ceremony. Luckily MP Wedding films captured every bit. Oh man our facial reactions were priceless. I don't even remember messing up my vows.. oh but I did! Last, I know every bride wants to look perfect for their wedding (and thanks to my makeup artist Raquel and hair stylist, Allie I have never felt more amazing!) I remember after the ceremony telling myself, let go and have fun! I'm glad I did! I didn't care if my dress got dirty or my lipstick wasn't perfect. I ENJOYED my new husband, our amazing bridal party, guests and family. Have fun, CELEBRATE and most of all kiss that husband of yours! I am so thankful for our family, friends and Pure Lavish for being apart of such a milestone in our lives. Justin and I thank God every evening for the people in our lives. We are so blessed and know we owe it all to Christ. We look so forward to spending the next 100 years together and enjoying this roller coaster called marriage! Thank you to everyone that celebrated with us on September 20, 2015 and to my Husband, I love you! Happy ONE Year anniversary!
