It was a 60 degree November day in NY. The rain had stopped. This mysterious fog had set in. I put on a wedding dress and tied an orange ribbon around a bouquet of white roses. As I walked down the spiral stair case I got to see my Mr. Happy smile ear to ear. I think it was a moment where we were both realizing that today was the day we would marry each other.
We drove together, to one of our favorite hiking spots, talking the whole way about whether or not we were nervous or excited. I was initially a bit nervous, but found the whole thing very calming, very natural. We met the minister at the hiking spot. Katie was all ready to go as our flower girl. Our families arrived shortly after.
We started the ceremony right before noon. It was short and simple, but infused with words that held a lot of meaning for us. Rings were exchanged and we were read this final blessing...

Then came the moment where we shared our first kiss as husband and wife. (and yes those titles still sound funny!)
