Blake & Leader

Most of all, I remember… I don’t know the exact moment I realized that I wanted to marry Bennett, but I do know that I always had the best time with him, no matter where we were and I knew that I always wanted him by my side. Bennett is my very best friend and who wouldn’t want to hang out with their best friend all the time?

Looking back on our wedding day there are three memories that stand out the most in my mind. The first is the fact that my grandparents were able to attend my wedding, and that was a huge deal to me. We weren’t sure if they would be able to make it, and they did. For that I am so thankful. The next memory is immediately following the wedding ceremony, Bennett and I were escorted into a private room to quickly eat dinner before we went out to mingle and enjoy the reception. I will always remember Bennett unbuttoning his tuxedo jacket and falling down to the floor on his back with a huge sigh and saying, “we did it!!” The last memory is that I almost fell out of the chair while dancing The Hora. It was so much fun and Bennett looked so amused in the photos, while I look completely terrified!

We love married life. We are at the point in our lives now where some big decisions are being made, and we are truly enjoying learning and figuring out the path that works best for us. It is a very exciting time and I look forward to all that lies ahead.



Burke & Bailey - An Anniversary Post

Most of all, I remember… When I look back to our wedding day, above all, I remember how I felt. There were so many emotions, but I guess it could best be described as a euphoric calm—happier and more excited than I’ve ever been, but also calm and confident because I knew I was making the best decision of my life by marrying Geoff (yes, I know how cheesy that sounds).  I will never forget seeing him standing at the altar waiting for me.

I remember walking into our reception and going to straight to the dance floor for our first dance.  It was the first time I really saw all my friends and family and it was so wonderfully overwhelming.  Geoff still laughs that I was a terrible dance partner because I was so busy waving to our guests the whole time.  I just couldn’t help it—when else in your life are you surrounded by all the people you love the most?!

I also remember disembarking from our “getaway boat ride.”  The boat dropped us off at Oyster Landing and we had a short walk to our “getaway car” that was waiting to take us to our hotel.  Unlike our rowdy, full reception, we were completely alone for the first time all night.  We couldn’t believe it was over, and how amazing it had been.  Two years later, I am still overcome with gratitude to my parents, my incredible husband, and all the people who helped make it the absolute best night of my life (so far)!

Most of all, I remember… Standing at the altar and looking into my wife's eyes. I will never forget how beautiful she looked and will never be able to fully explain how overwhelmed with love and appreciation I was.

I remember the hours after the wedding seemed to fly by in a blur, but the minutes preceding the ceremony dragged on for what seemed like hours. I have never been more ready for anything in my entire life than I was to marry Amanda.

I also remember that leaving our reception in a boat was epic. I remember saying goodbye to family and speeding off at 3 miles an hour :)

Robin & Jeff

Most of all, I remember... There wasn't a specific "Aha!" moment when Jeff and I knew we wanted to spend our lives together. We're lucky because we were both ready to find the right person and settle down when we met; Jeff had recently moved back to Austin after spending years in Chicago and D.C. for law school and clerkship, while I was all too familiar with bad dates and the anxious insecurity that comes with relationships that aren't meant to be.

When we started dating, I quickly noticed that I didn't spend my days wondering when Jeff would text or call, or worry about whether I had said all the right things at dinner the night before. He didn't make any secret of the fact that in his eyes, I could do no wrong, and that he didn't care if I wanted to wear day-old hair and flip flops to an upscale restaurant. One evening a few months in, sipping some wine on my couch after work, I asked him if he would ever consider going to China with me; I've been obsessed with the culture for years but hadn't yet been to Asia, and as an American-born Chinese man, I knew Jeff would be the perfect travel companion for my dream trip. He hesitated for a moment, and then confessed that he had already planned an entire two-week trip to Hong Kong and Shanghai for the Lunar New Year, which was still nine months away. He had booked the flights, the dinner reservations, and the hotel view overlooking Victoria Harbour so as to see the spectacular fireworks unimpeded. Wow.

An older married friend once told me that for marriage to work--to REALLY work over the long haul--both parties have to make the decision to be active participants in their relationship every day, and to give 100% to their marriage. Jeff is someone who consistently puts my feelings and needs before his own, and I try to do the same for him. He is the most kind, thoughtful, generous, and wonderful man I've ever known (besides my Daddy!), and the idea of being married to him feels like the most natural thing in the world.
