It's our anniversary!

Today is our 1 year anniversary!! One year ago today I was on cloud nine knowing that I was marrying my best friend. I still remember the excitement of the entire day. All of my favorite ladies in one room. Feeling so blessed to be surrounded by so many incredible women that cared so much about me. When every one's dress was zipped and makeup on, they all left to go line up for the ceremony. It was just my sister and I standing on the front porch of the little cottage. She gave me a pep talk and made me laugh. She knows how to make me calm! Then they came and picked her up and I was all alone. Left to ponder my thoughts and then the butterflies hit! My dad came with the wedding coordinator to pick me up in a golf cart so we could ride up together before making our altar walk. All the nerves melted away when I locked my arm in with my dads. I knew I was about to lay eyes on my future husband and I was so excited to see him. The ceremony seemed like a blur. What I do remember are the vows and how I couldn't take my eyes off of Beau. He looked so perfect in his tux. His hair was done just the right way and his skin looked so smooth. I stood there listening to him say his vows to me. I smiled the whole time. It was so pure, so sincere. Then it was my turn. I started off strong, "I, Nicole" and then my emotions got the best of me and I could barely hold it together. The words from the Bible are so precious. I couldn't just stand up there repeating what my pastor was saying as if it was just another day. These are the words that would change my life forever. Words that would shape my marriage. It's a commitment to one another but more importantly to God. It all just came over me. It was the most exciting words to hear when my pastor announced us "Mr. and Mrs. Aaron ....!" I remember feeling light as air as we made our walk down the aisle, hand in hand as husband and wife.

The reception was perfect! The weather was so amazing that night. We had our ceremony in a courtyard of a Spanish style villa and the reception was also outside. Dancing under the stars! As soon as it began it was a whirlwind and before we knew it we were dancing our last dance, "It's a long way to Mexico" by Roger Creager. Our honeymoon was in Mexico so it felt like a fitting song :)

I'll leave you all with several pics of our special day. Enjoy and I hope everyone is having a very Happy Easter!
