So! Nik and I went and got married back in May and I thought I would share a few of my favorite photos from the super-fun day with you! I squealed so loud the other night when I opened the email that our photographer, Jessica Ames, sent to tell us the photos were all ready. So fun to look back through them and see all the smiles and happiness all over again. Seriously, it was a really super-fun day and night. Jess came over early in the morning and went with us to the farmer's market to pick up our weekly CSA share. She was so, so awesome following us around all day. We told her to go nuts with whatever she wanted, so we have a nice mix of digital, film, and polaroids/instax. Nik and I got ready at home. My sister did my hair and we had lots of laughs getting ready. Jess took some pre-ceremony photos of just Nik and I walking around Williamsburg, by the waterfront and then on a side street. By the way, the weather was PERFECT. Seriously, everyone should get married in May. The cherry blossoms were all in bloom, the sky was blue, and it felt just warm enough during the daytime (it did get a bit chilly later on.) Family photos followed at the local park near my apartment. Totally didn't plan the fun spring color theme in the family's outfits, but that worked out well! Neither of us were into to many of the traditional wedding things, so we just didn't do them. We kept it simple and just threw a big party with a brief ceremony thrown into the middle of it. As a result, it was non-stop fun the whole day!

|Seriously! So pretty! The heck with bouquets!|
|My little sisters and I!|
|Both sides of the family|
|My Dad and I, awww|
|Love the basil plants!|
|Some serious pro-bartending all night.|
|Nik spent many hours making those homemade pixie sticks. The mad lib cards everyone filled out were HILARIOUS.|
The ceremony was short and sweet! We followed it up with a champagne toast with everyone and to kick off the rest of the night.
|Smooch! I made all the paper flowers for the arch over us. It took many many hours and lots of glue-gunning and painting.|
|My sister, proclaiming how happy she was to have a "brother-in-law"|
|Nom. Nik and I shared a PB Bomb.|
In the days following the wedding, Nik and I kept saying how we didn't think it could have possibly gone any better. Seriously, it was perfect. Everyone had a great time, we were able to see so many of our family and friends, and it was just a perfect celebration of our relationship and life together. Yay!

|More cheers! So many cheers!|
