Our Wedding Video

Sometimes the grossest looking foods are the tastiest.

Exhibit A:

Nasty Deliciousness

That would be 1/2 of a small avocado mashed with a couple of spoonfuls of salsa. (It’s basically a avocado-heavy version of my favorite salsa avocado dip.)

Looks like bunk, tastes delicious!

I ate the odd concoction atop a Thomas’ everything bagel thin, alongside itty-bitty tomatoes and an apple.

The Whole Enchilada

Now I have something awfully special to share with you…

Our Wedding Video

Last week I mentioned that my friend Merri secretly made a wedding video as a wonderful gift to me and Ryan. Throughout our wedding day, she sneaked around, unbeknownst to us, filming us getting ready, and recording our ceremony and the beginning of our reception.

She worked with a friend of hers to compile all of the footage and set it to music.

I love this video so much and Ryan and I are so, so grateful to Merri for capturing the best day of our lives on video for us to cherish forever.

I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

    This video is so beautiful!! As was your wedding day, your dress and your family/friends’ testimonies to your relationship with Ryan šŸ™‚ I’m so NOT a wedding-sap, and I got tears in my eyes during the ceremony clip! Ha, probably sounds weird coming from a stranger…but just sayin. šŸ˜‰ Wishing you both the very best!!

    Just saw this now, it’s incredibly beautiful – what a wonderful gift from your friend!! Looks like a wonderful day for a great couple. Absolutely made me tear up – and seeing Sadie dressed up and in action was one of my favorite parts.

    The wedding link on your post this morning took me to this video and words cannot descibe how much I adored it. Love how happy your friends and family are for the both of you. My favorite parts were how beautiful you looked when you were getting ready pre-wedding and the look of pure adoration Ryan has on his face for you whenever the camera is on him. What a special gift, you guys will be so happy to look back on it on your 10, 20, 50th wedding anniversaries!
