Mr. Squirrel Put a Ring on It!

And it was the best day of our lives!


It has been a week since our wedding and it still feels surreal to me. I am still wandering about in this haze where my heart is about to burst out of my chest. Our wedding was so much better than I could have ever hoped. It wasn’t just the ceremony or the gorgeous reception, but it was all the little details that make my heart flutter just reminiscing. The moment I saw my bridesmaids lined up in their mismatched dresses for the first time, watching Mr. Squirrel’s friends boogie down with my cousins, listening to my grandfather encourage shots of Patron during his dinner blessing… I loved catching Mr. Squirrel’s eyes across the dance floor and dancing our way back to each other, the awe I felt on the water taxi as I got the first peek at our venue, the moment at dinner when I looked around the table and felt completely surrounded by love, laughter, and many drunken fools…

To top it all off, the sun was shining…in that glorious May kind of way, where it is not too hot and not too cold. It was the most wonderful day, but it was not perfect. I certainly had moments of panic and stress. I can see it plastered across my face as I look at the pictures when I began my walk down the aisle. It wasn’t until I had a clear view of Mr. Squirrel’s beaming face that all the worry and stress melted away. I knew I was exactly where I needed to be. We are SO happy and I can’t wait to share all the details with you. Here are a few teasers to give you a flavor of the day….

Honestly, I have so many beautiful details to share with you when I begin my recaps, but let’s be real…most of the night I was just checking out this guy.


And getting constantly photobombed as well :)

Hold on tight, the Squirrel recaps will be here soon!!!
