Note: When this post goes live it will probably be about a week past my official wedding date of August 3rd, even though I wrote it the day after our wedding. This is because I was accepted to Weddingbee pretty late in my planning process, and I wanted to catch you guys up on all my planning before I started recaps! (Think of it like a talk show, where the shows are taped the day before they air.) I know that future me is just as excited as present me that this is being posted right now!
I’ve been sitting and staring at my computer for over an hour now (while simultaneously using Facebook to procrastinate, of course) trying to think of a way to start my first post as a married lady. I still haven’t fully processed what has happened over the course of this amazing weekend, and I can’t seem to find the right words to describe all of the emotions I’ve felt in a measly two-day period. What I can tell you is that our wedding was by far the best wedding I have ever been to. And I even got a husband out of this one!

Our wedding day was not perfect, but it was perfect in the ways that mattered. Not all of my DIY projects were set out, my tables did not look exactly like my vision, and there was some chaos with the setup. None of our guests had a clue. What they’ll remember is the absolutely perfect weather, the delicious food, and that awesome DJ that kept the party going until our very last dance. Mr. Rucksack and I also didn’t dwell on the negatives, choosing to use my official wedding motto: “Eff it!” and focusing on everything that was right. And there was a lot to be happy about!

I truly couldn’t have asked for a better day. I have never felt more beautiful or more loved than I did for those six hours of our wedding. (And for the whole weekend, really!) I am so excited to share our wedding with you as soon as we get our pro pics back, but am now looking forward to some downtime with my new husband. (Honeymoon here we come!)

Thanks to everyone for your support, encouragement, and wedding advice. I think you’ll definitely see some of your suggestions shine through in our wedding!

Now I’m off to practice signing my new name! (It’s harder than I thought it would be!)
