I can’t believe it’s been 3 years since I married my best friend! Three years of sheer happiness, laughter, and joy. Where did time fly? It’s hard to believe that in just 10 days we are celebrating baby K’s first birthday (stay tuned for the blog post following his birthday party). For the past 3 years, I’ve been blessed beyond measure with an amazing husband and father to our almost one year old baby boy. He is the most loving, caring and selfless person I’ve ever met.

We had a beautiful destination wedding in Romania, Europe. For that reason, destination weddings will forever be a big part of my heart! Although our day was nothing short of perfect, I do have one regret: we never ordered a wedding album! We received a CD with our wedding pictures from our talented photographer, but we never actually had an album made. I always encourage my brides to invest in a wedding album when they first book their wedding collection. Nothing compares with the emotion of flipping through the pages of your one-of-a-kind wedding album for the first time, your first family heirloom. As a bride, you invest in high quality photography. It is only fitting that you display your images in a high quality way! If I’m completely honest with you, I don’t think I ever showed anyone all of our wedding pictures. I mean, who would even want to sit in front of a computer and click “next” to get to the next picture? Imagine doing that for hundreds of pictures. It sounds funny, but it’s true!

As a bride, I was not in a hurry to order my wedding album right away. I thought that I would have enough time to purchase one after the wedding. Two and a half years later, I still hadn’t ordered one. Truth is, if you don’t make it a priority, you will never find time for it! That’s why, this year we made it a goal to order a wedding album as an anniversary gift to each other. And we absolutely LOVE it!!! I can’t tell you how happy I am that I now have a centerpiece sitting around for family and friends to see when they come over.

If you want to take a peek, I created a video that I want to share with you all. I hope you enjoy it!

Many thanks to our wonderful photographer, Manu Petra, for creating these beautiful memories for us!
