Take My Sweater: And We’re Off!

I was not ready for our wedding to end.

I could have stood on that dance floor all night and danced my heart out with my best friends, but sadly it was time to go. Our guests went outside, gathered their bubbles, and waited for us to come out.


We ran outside to a shower of bubbles, cheers, and love, and it was one of the most wonderful moments I have ever experienced. I caught quick glimpses of the faces of the people I love smiling at me as I left for my honeymoon with my husband.



We ran out to our limousine, climbed in, and headed off on our surprise honeymoon adventure.


Yes, the wedding is over, but don’t worry—I still have a couple of posts up my sleeve, including our fabulous day-after (more like three weeks after, but whatever) photo shoot with our amazing photographer!

    Bubble exit, so jealous. We were trying for this, but it didn’t happen.

    Ohhh Mrs. Cardiagan, I love you. :) You’re the sweetest, most geniune, and real girl, love it! I love your colors, I’m going with the gray and yellow also. And the fact that you put so much time into your big day, all the DIY projects, I think that shows character, I’m going to do the same!! Congrats, you were a beautiful bride! Three cheers to being in love!
