This month marked our 4 year wedding anniversary! I shared with you the little DIY gift I made for my hubby but I thought that I would also take you back to our special day on April 12, 2008 when I married the man of my dreams! I was inspired to post some of our wedding pictures by Absolute Mommy who is celebrating her 7 year anniversary today (congrats!) and is welcoming fellow bloggers and friends to share their wedding in her first solo link party WIW: Wedding.
Hubs and I met through an online dating service (yes, they really do work!) and had our first blind date on August 25th, 2005. Fast forward two years to June 15th, 2007 when he took me to the docks on Lake Union, got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. 10 months later on April 12th, 2008, we became husband and wife!
Thanks to a lot of help from my parents, we were able to have the wedding of my dreams. It took place at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel in Seattle, WA. We planned an indoor wedding because in Seattle you have to expect rain. But to our surprise, it was a gorgeous day that reached a high of 80+ degrees! That is unheard of for an April in Seattle. Everything about the day was perfect. Sure we may have stumbled over our well rehearsed and choreographed first dance, and yes, my brother-in-law gave the most embarrassing best man speech, but the flowers were amazing, the venue was gorgeous, the cake was a work of art, my dress was stunning and we were surrounded by all of our close friends and family from near and far.
