Watercolor Wedding

Our wedding day was completely dreamy. A trifecta of glory one might say. I remember both of us getting on the plane to fly to Colorado for our wedding and I looked over at Matt and started mind screaming, "Holy crap this is really happening?! I'm marrying my best friend! I'm marrying the hottest man on the planet! I'm marrying the hottest and funniest man on the planet!" With my giant wedding dress draped over our laps passerby's kept commenting on how young we looked, which then of course followed with us actually telling them how young we really were, and they were then even more shocked, of course. But no matter what people said; Your too young. Are you really sure? You'll never be able to make this decision again? Are you really ready to give up the single life? How are you going to make things work as college students? I had absolutely no doubt. Honestly. Not a single bit of it. I was just excited, because for the first time everything felt completely right, like something just locked into place when we met, and we both just knew. Is that silly to say? We both just knew? Well we did.

  3. I love the art work and the story. I just got engaged and have been given the "you're so young" speech many times.

  4. Such a fun story :) Where I live it's very, very rare that people tie the knot before they're 25 or 30 these days. I'm 20 now, and not one of my friends is even close to getting engaged. Maybe that's why some people judge soon. I have become quite used to the young age a lot of bloggers got married, haha. I know a few whom are younger than me and have been married for two or more years! Very strange to me, but why not when you are sure he's the man of your dreams? I wish you both the best in all years to come! x

  6. I hear this a lot too. "You're so young." "Why get married now, why not wait?" But then I think well why not? Few people realize what a great thing it is to grow older with someone by your side.
