Today Matt and I are celebrating our fourth year anniversary. It seems so appropriate that we are spending the weekend in Florida shooting a wedding. It is the first time we are here for one of our anniversaries since we moved to California shortly after our wedding. Looking through my photography blog I found this post I wrote 2.5 years ago. I mean it today more than I did then:
“18 months ago I walked down the aisle of a tiny little church in Florida. The church was packed with family, friends and people who were there to witness what was and will always be one of the best days of my life. The man of my dreams was waiting for me at the altar, ready to say I do and to be my husband. I’m a crier and I was convinced the moment I would start that short yet amazing walk, my eyes were going to be filled with tears and my make up was going to be ruined. But instead, excitement and unbelief took over. I couldn’t believe I was marrying Matt. I asked God for a good guy and He gave me a great one. I asked for a good guy, and I got an amazing one. One that exceeded my expectations in every way. 18 months ago I became Mrs. Matthew Glidden and my life has not been the same since that day. I love weddings, not just because of that day, the love, the white gown, the tears and smiles, friends and family, but because of what that day represents. I love weddings because I wholeheartedly believe in marriage. I believe that being married to my best friends has been by far one of the best things that has happened to me. I love weddings because I know the blessings and joys that come after that day, joys that are much greater than the day itself. 18 months ago was a good day, but the past 18 months have been even better.
I love you more than you can imagine, Matthew! Thank you for loving me and for making marriage easy!”
