My Heart Will Always Be Yours, Honestly

I’ve come up with an ingenious idea for not having video at the wedding. The Photographer’s pictures are back, and while they are just now only online, I’m waiting for the CD so I can work on my next project: One of those videos set to music with pictures that are in a slideshow format! With the song I walked down the aisle to! Eee!

There hasn’t been a lot going on over here, that’s for sure. Everything quieted down quite a bit after the wedding and now I can focus on the other neglected areas of my life. Such as…the plan that X and I are going to move to New York. I don’t know how long this will take, but we have the wheels in motion on this. I cannot tell you what will make me happier – finally, FINALLY going back home after 12 years, or that X will be with me and can enjoy the New York I know and love.

In any case, here are my favorites from the wedding. And in case you ask where X is, I have a favorite of us, but I think I will spare X of having his face plastered up here along with mine. It might be “for better for worse”   but I don’t think I should try to make good on that so soon after being married. After all, it is just three weeks today.


“C’mon Mommy! Let’s go get married already!”


If Sammy didn’t overshoot the aisle, this wouldn’t have taken so long.


Looking back on 5 years of blog…I never thought I would see this day either.


The jury is still out as to whose hand this is. I had originally blamed the King of the Dog Park, however, I believe that that might be X’s thumb. They both fessed up right away, which means, both of them were feeding Sammy a bevy of treats from the hors d’oeuvres


Once I introduced my sweet little niece to the dance floor, we couldn’t stop her. The funniest part is that we had an evening wedding and my brother was convinced this child would be sleeping by 7:30. Yeah. No way.


X and I are ready to go do this all over again. It was so much fun. I’m glad we didn’t elope.

Happy Weekend Everyone!

    These pictures are great. I do love the one of you with your dogs. They dressed up beautifully for the event– I’m sure Sammy needed some extra mirror time to admire himself!

    If you have access to a mac, iMovie will do slow pans over your pics and it will seriously look almost like movie quality.

    Pics are great! Gratz again on getting a ball and chain 😀

  3. Siryn

    Great pics! It is too bad you don’t have video, but the slideshow is a fantastic idea.

  4. Claus von Gingersnap

    Beautiful and brilliant. Btw, who was the photographer, or did I miss that part?

  5. Carla @ I Run, You Run

    As you know, I love your pictures!

    And I’m glad I chose to get a videographer, even though at first I was convinced they were a waste of money!

  6. Red

    Awww You are SO BEAUTIFUL!

    mysterygirl! – Sammy was M.I.A. for most of the wedding. My friend’s 6 year old son kept running up to X and saying, “I just got Sammy, he was in the parking lot, he almost got hit by a car.” OMG! I definitely DO NOT win mother of the year. That dog and his adventurous spirit…I swear.

    JohnnyDC – No Mac over here. But I do own plenty of MAC makeup. Will that work?

    Siryn – Now I’m just waiting on the Photog to get the CD to me. Poor thing. She’s 9 months pregnant and trying to finish everything up before the baby comes.

    Claus – A lady in Connecticut. No one famous who you’ve been known to hob-knob with.

    Carla – Good call. I felt the same about the money, now I’m just in regret-ville.

    Red – Thanks. No seriously. It’s the makeup.

    More fabulous pictures!! Can’t wait to see the slideshow!

    I think my dogs will behave much like yours did…

    And NY! That’s exciting!

    The dogs are so festive! And so much less sulky than the dogs in my family would’ve been about being decked out like that.

    You had an excellent photographer – those pictures are wonderful. Don’t feel too bad about not having video. With such beautiful photos you’ll take the time to savor and think about each one. And a slide show with music has the potential to be even more meaningful than a regular wedding video would be. That’s what I think anyway.

    Fantastic photos! Very happy for you. 🙂 I love how Sammy and Thora had a blast at the wedding. When are you moving to New York??
