First Comes Love, Then Comes… Baby?? Our Perfect Backwards Wedding Day

Family Happiness Love

First comes love, then comes… err baby.

Then many, many years of waiting.

THEN marriage? Ok, PHEW… there it is. Marriage.

Yes, we did… as we always do… things a bit backwards. But you know, as a sit back and think about it, there are some beautiful benefits to getting hitched, after already having a family.

From the resolution of having worked through incredibly tough moments together, to a literal DECADE of figuring one another out, while we both still evolved… getting married after so much time together felt more destined than ever before.

Sure, we could say we’ve been destined from the beginning to be together, and maybe we were.  But we were also destined to go through trials and tribulations that tested our love, strength and focus for one another, before we got to where we are today.

Having our daughter at our wedding, standing beside us, dancing with us, and a part of not only our moment, but our vows… just felt right.  It was how our moment was always meant to happen.


Don’t believe me? Well how about moments like this…




And memories like this…




The little things, like her tiny bracelet mixed in with my jewelry for the day…



And obviously, after so many years of friendship, you pick up a few things along the way, like…






And there are beautiful glimpses at generations of love…



Or sharing in all of the special moments of the wedding day…


And joining the first dance…


You see?  Doing things a bit different, can be down right beautiful.  Our journey has taken us around so many ups and downs, twists and turns, but in the end… it all brought us here.  Together.  Our perfect, little family of 3. Our way.
