remembering our wedding celebration

Scott and I were married twice. A fun little fact that often times confuses people. On April 16, 2009 we went to the court house and got married with my brother, sister and her boyfriend {now husband}. My parents were in Guam and Scott's parents were in Michigan. We knew we wanted to do a big wedding but it was important to us to get married before we moved in together and the long distance relationship was not fun. It was a decision we felt was right for us and a decision I will never regret or wish we would have done differently.

On June 5, 2010 we had a big ceremony and celebration in front of all of our friends and family. It was a beautiful day and I have so many wonderful memories from it. I can't decide which one to celebrate. As beautiful and memorable as the June 5th wedding was a part of me feels like the April 16th date is a bit more special. It really was the day we committed ourselves to one another and our relationship to God.

Scott wants me to pick one of the dates to consider our anniversary, I keep stalling. I want to celebrate on both!

I am so blessed to have such a strong, encouraging, hardworking and dedicated husband. The second year of marriage was a bit rough, but as we celebrated 3 years this past April I can't help but notice how far along we have come. How much stronger we are as a couple as well as with our walk with God.

We have had many things to celebrate but also struggles and obstacles to deal with and overcome. It hasn't always been a walk in the park, but I can't imagine working through the struggles with anyone else. 

To have your husband be your best friend is truly a blessing. We understand each other more and more as each day passes. We know how to encourage one another as well as how to sometimes push each others buttons.

This thing called marriage is no joke. It is not something to take lightly. The vows we said 3 years ago still mean as much to me today as they did then. When I feel our game is off I remind myself we both said for better or for worse...as long as we both shall live.

With you by my side and with God as our guide I know we will have an amazing life. Never did I imagine being married would be as wonderful as it is. Every day is a new adventure and with you as my partner I know we will conquer anything. 

Thank you for being my price charming and loving me so unconditionally. I love you.

Love this post, and your wedding photos!! I think you should be allowed to celebrate on both dates - why not? in the military, sometimes we celebrate holidays twice right? so why not wedding anniversaries? :)~Jillian

I love that you had the first wedding and then you cared enough before moving in together. That's such an important factor that it feels like no one cares about anymore!
