I'm a Mrs. An "other half." A Spouse. A newlywed.

I love it!

The wedding was amazing. Even though the weather wasn't quite cooperating....(ahem) the day was still beautiful. We ended up getting married right in the ballroom where the reception was due to the rains & wind but it didn't matter. The room was cozy and filled with candlelight and we said the vows and heard the music and listened to our aunts do readings and the minister give his sermon. We gave each other rings and a kiss and were announced as husband and wife!!!


The reception was so much fun (albeit a crazy whirlwind) and after the reception we had a campfire on the shores of lake superior - as the weather had cleared. The most amazing thing was the NORTHERN LIGHTS put on a spectacular show....just for us (or so I think!!). So many people came to the "after party" - we roasted hot dogs, drank beer and wine chatted chatted chatted - it was an amazing night.

I will post more details (naturally) later with photos but right now I'm exhausted and all I can manage is eating triscuits and watching Dr. Phil. :-)

Thanks for all the well wishes!!!

I'm a happy new wife!
