Our Wedding

I’m excited to be writing to you today as the new Mrs. Shenk. I can’t believe we finally made it to this point. It’s been over two weeks since Peter and I got married and I still don’t believe it happened. We talk all the time about how the entire day felt like a dream! But it wasn’t and we are officially married!!

If you talked to me in the last few weeks leading up to the wedding, you know that it was not easy for me. Some brides I talked to said that in the last month before their wedding that they were totally at ease and ready for their big day. Me? I was quite the opposite. I was a hot, stressed mess. But once our day finally arrived and I woke up totally calm and ready to take on the day.

From the ceremony til the very end of the night, everything was perfect and greater than I had imagined. I took a minute during our ceremony to look at Peter and truly take in the moment. And other than that, it flew by!! I actually had to ask my mom if the ceremony was long enough because it felt like five minutes. An emotional five minutes! I may or may not have cried during my vows AND walking down the aisle.

We then had an incredible night with our closest friends and family. Dancing and drinking the night away! I can’t wait to share more photos, videos and details from our wedding!

In the end, I would have to say all of the stress was worth it and I’m so happy to now be married to my best friend!

Cheers to forever!
