2nd Anniversary

Two years ago today, Robert and I said “I Do” on a beautiful beach in Wailea, Maui. It was the greatest day of my life, and the past two years of marriage have been such an incredible journey. I love that I get to share in all of life’s adventures with him, and I look forward to many, many more years together!

I still love to look at our wedding photos and reminisce about that perfect day! Aside from marrying my best friend, one of the best parts of that day was when a sea turtle actually swam to shore where our ceremony was taking place, which is a Hawaiian sign of longevity. What an incredible gift from God! :0)

  11. Oh your pictures area beautiful, you both look amazing in them! Congrats on your 2nd anniversary! Just looking at the photo's makes me want to go to Maui again:)
    I've never thought about an ideal wedding location for myself, I visit plenty with the brides. I think if I ever get married, I would love something in the mountains, I am a mountain girl at heart:)

      A wedding in the mountains would be absolutely gorgeous!
