We chose to have our wedding up in Yosemite, California at Tenaya Lodge. Both Matt and I share a love for the mountains (he proposed in Mammoth during the perfect snowfall) so we didn’t think twice about having our wedding up in Yosemite. This was one of the best decisions we made in our wedding. The clean, crisp air lined the landscape with redwoods, making a gorgeous backdrop for photos and an experience that we’ll always remember.
Leading up to our wedding, I thought about all the things that Matt and I have accomplished in the past four years. New jobs, moving in together, adopting our cat Ziggy, many baseball games and more. I look at our relationship and feel so lucky I found Matt. In our time together, he has made me laugh more than I ever have. He has given me confidence and has taught me to go with the flow.
Every night he comes home shouting “Bub!” and I run to the door to greet him. I can guarantee you we will continue that routine, even with gray hair and wheelchairs.
I didn’t use to believe in those sayings like “love at first sight” until I met Matt. I now understand why that saying exists. We fit each other perfectly from our flaws to our best qualities and know exactly what to do to either calm each other down and support one another back up.We know our marriage will challenge us just as our relationship has, but the bad days aren’t so bad when you experience them with your soulmate.
I remember throughout our wedding day, just looking at Matt and smiling. Happy to be surrounded by our closest friends and family, happy to be marrying the love of my life and happy to be starting a new chapter.
