If you ever want to test your mental health try planning a wedding in three weeks! From the dress to the church to the reception to the music to the food to the suit to the guests there is so much to think about when planning a wedding!
I was very lucky I had a great support system with my husband, parents, in-laws, and wedding party. Even thought these three weeks were filled with stress I look back on them with such fondness! These were the days that I planned one of the most important days of my life!
We started by picking the church. We decided on the church that my husband has gone to since he was a child. It was beautiful, and the pastor was amazing. We picked our date based on the availability of the church and then everything started to fall into place. I found my dress at Davids Bridal, was able to get it altered, so it was done the day before the wedding. My eight bridesmaids looked beautiful in short navy dresses, and Tyler would wear a navy suit and his groomsmen a navy suit coats with khaki pants.
Since our wedding was just after new years with plenty of snow on the ground, we decided to keep it a winter theme. We found decorations and favors easily since everything was still on sale from after Christmas. We ordered our seating chart and guest book tree off of etsy.
We had the reception at the Tewksbury Country Club, which is absolutely beautiful and perfect for our wedding. We picked our food off their menu which included, hamburger sliders, coconut chicken, grilled cheese and tomato soup, and a pasta bar. Our photographer moved the date so that she could do our wedding. My husband new of a great DJ, who graduated with his sister.
Everything came together perfectly!

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

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
