Today Is My One Year Wedding Anniversary

Today's post is a personal one. :) My husband, Matt, and I were married one year ago today on May 10th, 2008 at the Umstead Hotel and Spa in Cary, NC.

We met at the 42nd Street Oyster Bar in downtown Raleigh on my 23rd birthday. I had invited several of my friends out to dinner and one friend brought Matt along to join in the festivities. Despite Matt having an unsettled stomach which he fought off with a plate of mashed potatoes, he and I discovered that we shared a common past of collegiate swimming and ultimate frisbee. Matt was involved with coordinating games for RC Ultimate, and at the end of the meal told me to obtain his email from our mutual friend if I was interested in playing. Fortunately, I was not intimidated by Matt's good looks and charm, and always welcomed an opportunity to throw an elbow or two. The following week I sent Matt a witty email, which prompted numerous novelesque email exchanges, until Matt smoothly asked me out to dinner a week and a half later; and the rest is history.

On a gorgeous day in May we were married. Here are a handful of my favorite photos from our wedding. Enjoy! :)
