Five years

It's always wonderful to think back to this day, and know that we had no idea what life held in store for us.
All we knew was that we were in love. No matter what came our way, we wanted to experience it together.And now to see the beautiful live we're living's hard to imagine that things could have turned out any other way. Because this...this is my idea of perfection.

Love you, babe!

Fun wedding facts

-We planned the wedding in 4 months

-It was about 5 degrees that day

-I had as much fun the night before my wedding as I did on the actual day

-I woke up on my wedding day hungover (Hence, above!)

-My father and sisters came over for breakfast with Freihofer's donuts, to escape the psychotic wedding-day madness that my mother was enveloped in that morning

-I got my makeup professionally done, cried when I saw how awful it looked, then washed it all off and did it myself at the last minute

-My hair color looked like it belonged on the head of Malibu Barbie

-We wrote our own ceremony and included a Celtic hand-fasting

-Our wedding party consisted of four people: my two sisters and Devon's two brothers

-I had such anxiety about changing my last name, that at the reception were introduced as "Emily and Devon." No last names at all!

-We walked into our reception to "Ain't That a Kick in the Head" by Dean Martin

-Our wedding song was "These Are the Days" by Van Morrison.

-The reception was held at the same place my parents had theirs, 25 years earlier.

-We had 99 guests, consisting of about 90% family members

-We both agree to this day that it was the most fun day we have ever had!
