One Year of Marriage

For the first few months after I got married, everybody asked me how it felt. And my choices were to either 1) Give a generic, happy answer 2) Complain about switching health insurance or 3) Admit that nothing felt different at all. Everyone acts like getting married is some giant, life-altering event, and I’m sure it is for some people. But when you’ve been dating for five years and living together for two years, putting on a couple rings doesn’t change that much. 

However, that was completely okay with me. I didn’t want my life to change dramatically. I got married because I wanted that part of my life to stay the same forever. I wanted to be with the same person, have the same conversations, and enjoy the same things for the rest of my life. (I also wanted to wear a pretty dress and justify the amount of time I spent on Etsy and Pinterest, but that’s beside the point.) For everyone who asked how it felt to be married, I will retroactively answer your question here.

It feels the exact same. And that feels amazing.

To celebrate one year of marriage, I’d like to share some of my favorite photos from the wedding. (I apologize to my Facebook friends who have already seen these a billion times.) My life may not have changed dramatically, but it was a damn good party.
