I can honestly say that our wedding day was one of the most incredible days of my life.  The entire day went better than either of us could possibly have imagined, from the morning with our friends and then our 'first look', to our almost surreal ceremony (which included whales swimming just offshore!) to some really touching and hilarious speeches.. It's hard to put into words what I felt about that day, and really the entire week, which we spent with all our closest family members and friends.

We haven't seen the professional photos yet, but the second I get them I will be making a massive post!  In the meantime I leave you with our vows:

You Have Chosen To Exchange Your Wedding Vows In Beautiful Baja Mexico.  
We Stand Between The Sea Of Cortez And The Pacific,   
Surrounded By The Spirits Of The Sun And Sea, 
And In The Presence Of Friends And Family Who Are Here To Surround You With Their Love. 
This Ceremony Is A Declaration Of Your Love And Union With Each Other.
This Marriage Should Provide Spiritual Growth And Discovery For Both Of You, 
Expanding Your Capacity For Love, Intimacy, And Joy, And The Intentions You Will Jointly Pledge Today Should Act As A Guide For The Future:
To Explore The World Together
To Always Be Truthful And Love Fearlessly
To Live Your Dreams
To Meet In Unconditional Love
To Be A Happy Family 
Love is patient, love is kind
It does not evny, it does not boast, it is not proud
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no records of wrongs. 
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always preserves.
Love never fails.
Marriage is not always 50-50.  You need to realize that there will be a balance in compromise.  There will be times when one will need to carry the other, and give more than the other.
“May your days together be good and long upon the earth.  Now you will feel no rain . . for each of you will be shelter for each other.  Now you will feel no cold . . . .for each of you will be warmth for the other.  Now there is no more loneliness.  Now you are two persons but there is only one life before you” 
May Infinite Happiness Accompany You During The New Life You Are Beginning Together.

counting down the days...

I can't believe that in less than a week we're going to be MARRIED!! We're back in town for about a week to tend to any last-minute wedding details (I just finished the seating charts this evening!), as well as a ton of client meetings and other errands that need to be done after a month of being out of town.. I'm actually pretty pleased with how much we managed to get done before we left for Brasil because most of what's left to do for the wedding are just small details and anything that doesn't get done won't be the end of the world.. I also want to cram in as many pilates sessions as I can the next few days to look great for the wedding :)
