My parents' wedding in 1981
Today, surrounded by 50 of our closest friends and family, Ryan and I are going to become husband and wife. I can't tell you how good it felt last night to see our families feasting together at our rehearsal dinner, some of the meeting for them first time, all of them there because of the love and support they have for us.
I thought that today would just be about my love for Ryan. But, in the events leading up to our wedding (my shower, our bachelor and bachelorette parties, our rehearsal and rehearsal dinner), it's really hit me that this is a day about our small community of loved ones. Everyone has done so much to show us their love and support and it's really blown me away how thoughtful and amazing these people are.
Thank you so much.
