Yes, today's date of July 25th, 2011 signifies the fact that it has been exactly one month since I became a married woman. It's true ... as many of those who were in attendance could confirm ... I walked down the garden path with my dad at my side, exchanged (some pretty special) vows with Mr. BB, ran through a blur of confetti, and danced the night away before departing on a boat that marked the beginning of our life as husband & wife. Of course, there are quite a few details from our wedding celebration that I missed - but to sum it up, it was amazing, unforgettable, and exactly what I had hoped for. And a little bit more.
We are patiently yet anxiously awaiting both our professional photos & videos from our day ... and I completely plan to share the results when they arrive. In the meantime, I thought it was only fitting to revisit my former close companion, The Burgundy Bride, precisely one month after my wedding day. And while I couldn't even attempt to recount the entire day, just as I did prior to the festivities, I have every intention of remembering the many details myself by sharing them on my beloved blog.
So first things first, and for obvious reasons ...
Just as many other brides and grooms do, Mr. BB & I decided to exchange gifts on our wedding day ... or possibly that was my idea? Regardless, as usual, he did not disapoint. And furthermore, I guess he had been aware of this blog I had been visiting for a over a year, because our brother/best man delivered a book that I will always cherish approximately two hours before I walked down the aisle. My husband-to-be had printed my ENTIRE blog ... each letter, word, & sentence ... and bound it into a book with a cover that he personally made himself. It was pretty remarkable, to say the least.
