Today marks the 15th anniversary of marriage between John and I. Can I just say that I feel like the luckiest lady alive? I really do. When other things go wrong in life, the one thing that makes up for everything is my husband 😀
We had the most gorgeous wedding day. We lived in Colorado at the time and planned an outdoor wedding. It actually had snowed a couple days before, so we were in a bit of a tizzy! However, the clouds parted and we had a 70 degree day. We were married by a JOP at the Sunrise Ampitheater in Boulder.
This was back before digital cameras, so excuse the quality 😀
The brass quintet in the background played arrangements done by John. We were both in graduate school for music at the time (my, how things change). I also weighed about 220 pounds (my, how things really change).
I wanted to wear my sunglasses so bad because it was so bright and sunny!
We really needed nothing to compliment the outdoors. My bouquet was picked up at the farmer’s market that morning. I went there looking for some flowers and already had my hair done. The flower vendor there noticed and made me the most beautiful bouquet!
My bridesmaids had red sunflowers tied with ribbons.
Check out my nails –
Note John’s wedding ring in this picture is no longer with us after being lost. We now have the Celtic bands and my wedding bands are in a jewelry box.
John’s side of the family lives in Colorado and we held the ceremony there. We then left for a few days to honeymoon in Disney World and then flew to NY to have reception there for my side of the family. That was so much fun to extend it for a whole week!
I got to get all dressed up again.
One of the very few public displays of affection that we do.
Fast forward to 2010
Note to self: Get more nice pictures of us instead of always goofing around.
Happy Anniversary John! Here’s to many more!
