The past few months have been a bit of a whirlwind….
Matt & I tied the knot in Greenville, Delaware.
The festivities started with a Pig Roast to welcome all of our family and friends & thank them for being part of our special weekend (thank you to my brother-in-law for carving the pig). We had a beautiful ceremony in Matt’s childhood church followed by a rustic & romantic evening under the stars. And of course, the night wouldn’t have been complete without a fire pit and whiskey & cigar bar to hang around- Matt’s favorite!
Matt & I wanted the wedding to be a reflection of us and our personalities and include some of our favorite things, so of course there were mini peanut butter & bacon jam sandwiches, tomato soup shooters with mini grilled cheese, and sliders. To top it all off, our signature drink- sweet tea vodka & lemonade with fresh mint, served in mason jars. It was absolutely perfect. My only regret- I didn’t eat more!
We are very lucky and blessed to have such incredible friends & family to help us celebrate and make our wedding so memorable. Even Mr. Bailey stopped by to say hello!
It was a magical evening, filled with fun, great food & drink, and love- we didn’t even notice the late night downpour. We departed into the night under a blanket of sparklers and headed off to Maine for a relaxing and secluded honeymoon filled with hiking, fly fishing, gorgeous sunsets, star gazing, and romantic nights by the fire.
Newlywed life is pretty wonderful, I have to say. It was a little strange at first to say “husband” but now I throw it out there as much as I can. Living in Boston has been amazing as well. I wasn’t so sure at first (as most people who know me can attest, I’m more of a warm weather girl) but this city has so many things to offer. As an added bonus we have some of our best college friends nearby. It’s the little things I enjoy most- cooking together, taking Mr. Bailey to the nearby pond to swim, searching for our new favorite places, nights out with friends, weekend trips to quaint New England towns….
Perhaps it’s that newlywed bliss, but things are pretty idyllic. We miss Wilmington and Philadelphia, which we still think of as home, but are having a wonderful time creating a new home here that so far hasn’t disappointed.
