On August 15, 2016 (one year and a day ago!) Matt and I got married in Michigan. I am so lucky, blessed, fortunate (call it whatever!) to have him in my life. That isn’t just a feeling I’ve had for a year though, it is one that I have had the eight years we have been together. Eight years!

Matt y yo nos casamos el 15 de agosto, 2015 en Michigan. Hace un año y un día. Me siento afortunada y bendecida tenerlo en mi vida. No es algo que he sentido hace este año de estar casada, sino por los últimos ocho años juntos.

 It feels like we have spent so much time dedicated to each other and have so many memories already, but then we look at our parents and grandparents, and think it is so little. The best is yet to come, which is hard to believe because we love life with each other so much right now!

Ya sentimos que hemos dedicado mucho tiempo a nuestra relación, pero de hecho, tenemos tantos años adelante para disfrutar juntos. Es difícil pensar que lo mejor está por venir, ya que nos sentimos tan contentos y felices con la vida ahora.

I’m not sure if I ever shared these portrait bride and groom photos with you all. If so, sorry for the repeats! If not- these are my absolute favorite from the night.  After the ceremony and while guests were eating, Matt and I went back outside with our photographer, Niki Marie, to snag more shots during golden hour. It was a really special time because we could be alone and internalize everything that had happened and was going to happen on our big day.

No me acuerdo si ya les compartí esta fotos retratos- creo que no- pero son mis favoritas. Después de la ceremonia y la cena, salimos para sacar fotos during el crepúsculo afuera con Niki Marie. La pasamos muy bien y tuvimos unos momentos privados (sin la familia ni amigos) para internalizar lo que estaba pasando. El día estaba volando, entcones ese periodo de tiempo fue importante para nosotros.

I love my Matty more than anything, and seeing these photos makes me so happy (and sappy!).  It’s an unparalleled feeling to admire somebody so much that you just want to better yourself to emulate his traits. When people say they are better because of their partner, I truly believe it. I feel it every day. it’s the best feeling to have, and one that I probably don’t sit and reflect on as much as I should.

Amo a Mateito más que la vida. Viendo estas fotos me llena de felicidad y me hace sentir tantas emociones bontias. El sentimiento de amar a alguien tanto que quieres mejorarte a ser como tu amor es incomparable. Creo que somos mejores cuando tenemos una pareja o  un compañero que admiramos. Lo veo cada día y lo siento en mi vida personalmente.
