My alarm started screeching at 9 AM. After not getting home till almost 2 am from the rehearsal dinner it seemed to be way to early for this. As I went to press the snooze button, something stopped me. It was my wedding day!
Believe me, when I say I am not a morning person, but I was on January 8th. I knew I needed all the time to prepare for 6 PM. Just 9 hours till the walk down the aisle. My morning began with several texts from my friends and family asking how I was holding up so far. I was surprisingly calm for the morning of the day that would change my life.
I started with my typical routine a quick shower, healthy breakfast, brushing my teeth, and then on to the fun morning with my mom… First I got my hair done at 11, nothing to fancy just some lovely curls. After that, I got my makeup done at a different salon. To me, it was important that I looked like me. I wanted Tyler too look at me and think that’s the woman I fell in love with. The last thing I wanted was over the top makeup that made me look like someone else. I did not want anything over the top, but rather a more polished version of my everyday appearance.
After this, I had to go straight to the hotel to meet my bridesmaids and the photographer. At this point, everything started to feel real! I had three hours till I walked down the aisle, to the man of my dreams! I never doubted that I should be getting married, I felt like the luckiest girl in the world on the luckiest day of her life! But I couldn’t help but feel anxious, it was the day I had been dreaming of since my first fairy tale. A day that I have built up to be the most wonderful and important day in my life. A day that will begin my new life and finally join Tyler and me on a journey through life as husband and wife. All these things started to run through my head as the time got closer and closer to 6 PM.
I was surround by my family and friends, but all I could think about was the butterflies in my stomach. The excitement… the nerves… So many emotion! The photographer kept snapping photos of us getting ready, we posed and smiled and then it was time.
5:45 Time to head to the church….
So sorry I have not blogged in the last few months! With the wedding plans my senior year and trying to have some sort of social life I have been BUSY!
If you follow me on any of my social media sites you know that I tied the knot! On January 8th 2016 I said “I Do” to my best friend and the love of my life! I have been loving my new life as Mrs. Trites and have been enjoying my happily ever after!
Since so many of you have been sending me messages asking for updates on what I have been doing or just to say congratulations I thought It would be nice if I could share some details with you all!
So my wedding day was perfect, it was actually more then what I had dreamed of since I was a little girl! The man I married is more amazing then any man I could ever dream up. He is the kindest, most loving man I have ever met. Not only does he make me happy but he makes me feel like no matter where I am I am home as long as I am with him I could never be lost! I hope you all wait for the right man because you all deserve to feel the way he makes me feel.
I’m sure that some of you who keep up with my life were shocked at the wedding date. Yes, it was supposed to be in September but sometimes life throws you a curve ball and you just have to go with the flow. We ended up planning an entire wedding at a venue that was not practical for our needs. It was to small for the amount of people we felt needed to be there. So while we were on break from school we planned a wedding. Something that takes people months or even years to plan we got together in 3 weeks! and it was perfect!
Over the next week I will be posting a post each day with more details and photos of the wedding! I hope you all enjoy this, and thank you for all your love and support!!
The New Mrs. Trites
A sneak peak at our wedding photos!
Hello everyone sorry about the whole long time, no talk thing. You see a lot has happened in my life since my last blog post. For one I am marrying the man of my dreams!
I guess it’s true what they say, that you will know when it is right. It didn’t take me long after I met Tyler to know that he is my better half, my one true love, and my real life prince charming. After a few years of dating he proposed, he made the day romantic and magical and since that day I haven’t been able to stop smiling.
The day began with a trip to my favorite amusement park where we saw dancing bears and took train rides into the mountains. We got an early dinner at a common man restaurant where we typically go for all our special occasions. After dinner, we went to the beach where we walked along the boardwalk and enjoyed each others company. Tyler had scheduled a boat ride that had been rained out because of the unexpected weather. So we then went bowling and to an arcade (and if you know me, you know that’s my idea of heaven). When we got back to our house he got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife.
I honestly believe I am the luckiest girl in the world to be blessed with this amazing man as my future husband. We have begun planning all the details from the wedding party to the venue and date. It’s amazing to be planning every detail of the day that will start the rest of our lives together.
The happiness and love that I feel is beyond anything that I could ever imagine. And I hope that all of you experience this same joy and pure happiness. This brings me to the lesson/rant of this post. So many of you have written to me about relationships you are settling with or relationships are harmful in different ways. Love is an amazing feeling, one that is hard to describe. It is a feeling of overwhelming joy, joy that you only feel when you are with the other person. It is a feeling of peace knowing that no matter what hardships are to happen you will always be where you belong as long as you are with your other half. Everyone deserves to feel this way it is a sense of truly belonging and a sense of comfort knowing you have met someone who will walk with you through all twists and turns of life.
To settle for the wrong person will not allow you to be blessed with these feelings that make up the joy of love. And for those who are in a relationship that is not exactly healthy you need to realize that love is supposed to be joyful, sweet, and peaceful. Any sort of abuse is not love and if your partner is not respectful of your body or your feelings you need to realize your worth and respect yourself enough to set your standards higher and hold whoever you allow into your heart up to those standards.
Trust me when I tell you waiting for Mr. Right is worth it. Never settle in love because true love is something worth living for. I understand that I am one of the lucky few who found the person who makes me feel so loved at such a young age. But I must tell you all this feeling is worth waiting for, it truly is a feeling of a lifetime.
Love you All
