It is about dang time I hit publish on this blog post!!

Y’all, our mountain wedding in North Carolina was a DREAM. Not because of all the gorgeousness… (well. somewhat) But mostly because of how sweet and loved and special we felt. We still do not have the words to articulate how thankful we are for each family member, friend and vendor who came and made our covenant day as special as it was. I love love LOVE being Mrs. Marquardt! And Cody loves being a hubs. We fit into our new titles nicely.

So, What’s life like being married?

It looks a lot like navigating a crazy grad school schedule and my crazy business schedule. Talking in weird accents to each other for hours at a time and acting like it’s totally normal. Sitting on the couch in silence and being so comfortable. Trying to budget and figure out our spending habits LOL. Marriage is so fun. It’s funny and beautiful. YES, we are still in the “honeymoon” phase, I guess. We are aware of all of the hard things that may come our way. But Cody Alan is my BFF and biggest support system and we are so grateful to be doing life together FINALLY!!!

SO, please enjoy our full wedding video and our favorite wedding images from our big day.
