March 19, 2017 Dan and I got married at the Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, CA (and got ready at Westlake Village Inn just down the road). Words cannot even describe how magical the day was. I thought I would be a crying stressed-out bridezilla mess, but I actually don’t think I have ever been as calm as I was on that day. I cried twice, when the videographer walked in, and when the photographer walked in (sorry, Dan). Dan and I were in our own world. We made a decision to make the day about us. We didn’t do photos with extended family, we didn’t make a trip to each table to say hello, we skipped cocktail hour for a few minutes of alone time, and were always arms length away from each other. Selfish? No way! If someone wanted to say hello, we were at our sweetheart table. If family wanted group photos, the photographers were ready to go. Our time alone, is something we will cherish forever.
We are back to reality now, trying to narrow down our 1500 photos, write all our thank you cards, and trying to potty-train Bailey.
Here is a little sneak peak as I continue to organize the rest of the photos! (literally, 1500 to get through! how does anyone narrow it down?!)
