I see posts on my Facebook feed from D Magazine showing crazy big expensive weddings. Our wedding was really nice. Some would say it was big, but it was nothing like what you see in D Magazine. In fact our wedding got rained out, we moved it to a church that was willing to have us on less than 24 hours notice, and we did the best we could. Allison and I picked our wedding music the day of the wedding when the string quartet showed up and told us what they could play. It was an awesome wedding, with almost all our best friends and family in attendance. And it was exciting and fun. But I will tell you that I would have had more fun and been more excited on that day if I had known how great it was going to be in the future. The beginning is nothing like the middle. The beginning is fun, but the middle is awesome. I would have had one of those crazy big expensive D Magazine weddings, or even bigger, if I had understood then how great it would be now. There would have been no price to high to celebrate being married to Allison.
(I should probably save this post for our anniversary, but I feel like today is the day for it.)
