Matt and I want to thank all of our family and friends who traveled from near and far to celebrate our wedding day with us.  Your love and support made this day possible.  A special thanks to my mom, for all of her time and creative energy in helping to plan this amazing day.
Everyone told us to enjoy every moment of the day as it will fly by all to quickly, and they were right.  I still get choked up thinking about standing in front of each other, our family and friends and reading the vows we wrote to each other. Those words we said that day to will forever remain in our hearts.

Matt and I met in May of 2011.  We had our first date at a Mexican restaurant and spent hours talking over spicy Mexican food and Negro Modelo beers.  And when I say hours I mean hours!  The night left both of us looking forward to the next time we’d see each other.  We discovered we shared a love of living an active life, good beer (no Bud Light for us), volunteerism and strong ties to our family and friends. Matt got down on one knee 16 months later on the beautiful island of Lanai in his home state of Hawaii, to ask me to be his wife and partner in life.    A year later we said “I DO” in beautiful Port Townsend in my home state of Washington.  We look forward to all the adventures our life together will bring.

Now that the cake has been cut, the toasts made, the champagne drank and the last song played all I can say is, Let’s do it again!
