it's official.

we're MARRIED!
this post is a tad last due to getting married...the honeymoon...reception...moving into our new place...oh ya and having no internet for a while.
but we're back! and we're loving every second of being married.
i don't have many pictures of our wedding and reception, but my friends snapped a few, so naturally i'll be stealing them :)

this is a picture from wednesday, december 29, 2010, the day charlie and i were married and sealed in the Newport Beach Temple. it was beautiful & simple. and a little surreal. [on the drive to our honeymoon i looked over at charlie and said "isn't it weird that i'm now your wife?" and he said "yeah...and i'm your husband" haha]
after the temple, my in-laws generously took all of us out to lunch at mimi's cafe. then we were in the fast lane to get to our honeymoon in coronado!

once we checked in and made ourselves cozy we decided we were hungry for some dinner, and for our wedding night dinner we decided to treat ourselves with some sushi. We came upon a restaurant called "yummy sushi" [and yes, it really was yummy]
we started off the meal with some edamame, then had the classic california roll, then some other fancy california roll then an extra fancy roll which i think was called "yummy sauce roll" [or something to that extent]  i wasn't a huge fan of the yummy sauce roll but charlie absolutely LOVED it.

and for dessert: gelato :)

i love how we have a goofy picture from our honeymoon and not a mooshy-mooshy-kissy-kissy-just-married-love-bird picture. haha we're just goofballs in love :)

now onto our ring ceremony & reception which was on saturday, january 1, 2011
[1-1-11 in case you didn't catch that ;)]
it was a beautiful sunny, clear day.
i woke up at around 9:30, ate breakfast, played peek-a-boo with my awesome nephew, then got all dolled up with my bridesmaids. it was a good morning.

[my dress looks so much better on. don't judge it by this picture, scroll down for proof]

[these were my flowers the day we went to the temple. my saturday flowers were purple dahlias :)]

the ceremony started at 3:30.
my dad walked me down the isle to "kisses and cake" by john powell
charlie and i exchanged vows [i think this was my favorite part of the day] charlie's vows were beautiful and of course i cried [no surprise there!] but what was a surprise was that my vows made charlie cry! that'll probably be the one and only time i see tears in that man's eyes. [my vows must have been pretty darn good ;)

[the kiss]

promptly after the ceremony "mr. and mrs. osborne" were announced into the reception..

we ate, mingled with loved ones, danced a little, cut the cake [which my mother-in-law made, by the way] threw the bouquet, had the garter toss, had a few speeches and we were sent off in our "just married" decorated car :)
we loved our ceremony and reception and we thank EVERYONE who was a part of it!

once we get all our edited pictures from our photographer i will post them. stay tuned :)
