6 years.

It was simple.  It was easy. Sam was the first person I’d ever dated who liked me for me. You know, the frizzy haired, think-before-you-speak, crazy clothed, sweet toothed me. Sam was the first who made me feel comfortable being myself & I am so lucky to have him in my life. He is the most incredible person I have ever met & I am beyond blessed to call him my love, my husband & my best friend. He drives me to be a better person, is constantly there to support me & cheer me on & he is hands down the best daddy on the planet. I’m excited to for what the future brings & excited to grow old with him.

We were married at the gorgeous Oakland Temple & I loved every single minute of our special day. My favorite details were our flowers (my bouquet was filled with green hydrangias & miniature artichokes-Sam’s boutennier was also a miniature artichoke), our fortune cookie wedding favors & my very favorite part of my wedding day was a surprise serenade from Sam in front of our guests. It was a fabulous day & we were so lucky to spend it with our closest family & friends!

Sam, thank you for making my life nothing short of perfect. Thank you for loving me for who I am. I am so grateful for you & I thank the Lord every day because you are in my life. xoxo, marielle.

And because no post is good without a photograph…here’s the photograph we sent out with our wedding announcements!

    Happy Anniversary! We just celebrated our 5th on the 18th. December is a good month for a wedding. :)
