Today, Offner and I are celebrating our 1 month wedding anniversary.
I hesitated doing an actual blog post about the wedding itself for a while but figured I could share a few photos from the beach ceremony. It’s not that I don’t want to share with everyone how magical and dreamy the whole thing was but it’s mostly because it still all seems very surreal. Additionally, I’ve been very personal on my website and have always included Offner in my posts, but this is something that I wanted to keep as intimate and private as possible because of how special it was to me.
Growing up, I always wondered if I would get married one day. I’ve always been a hopeless romantic and always fantasied about what it would be like to be a wife one day. Life is filled with so many twists and turns, that I never knew if I would find that person I would want to spend the rest of my life with one day.
The past couple of years with Offner have brought me so much joy, laughter, serenity and have made me feel so alive. Our life together has been such a beautiful adventure. He keeps me on my toes, he teaches me so much and for the first time in my life, I’m with someone who truly accepts me for who I am, supports me 100% and gives me all of his heart. So to us, getting married in a time where there’s so much negativity around, we just saw it as a positive gesture and a way to share love and positivity.
Additionally, a wedding and marriage can mean so many things for so many different people. We wanted to do it 100% our way and all by ourselves (it was SUPER diy!). So we did. California, the beach, gold outfits, tacos, booze cruise, donuts, etc., the #MeetTheOffners wedding was exactly how we wanted it to be and we wouldn’t of had it any other way. We kept it super intimate and had the honor of sharing it with the most wonderful group of people.
I am truly humbled by all the kind words, well wishes and support we’ve received this past month. I cannot believe it’s already been a month since this all happened. When I think back my heart is filled with so many emotions. It really feels like it was the most beautiful dream. I’m excited to see what the future has in store for us and can’t wait to continue this adventure with my husband, Offner.
