happy anniversary to us

Two years ago today, the Petaja family of Tec and Chelsea was made.

These past two years have been blessed with the joy of each other, health, friends, a home, work, beauty and lots and lots of love.

What more could a girl ask for?

Also, while we're all being a little nostalgic, here's our wedding video, too.

Who, by the way, was married two days ago at the very same location as Tec and me! It was such a sweet near-anniversary present to celebrate a new chapter of life with many of the same people we'd celebrated with two years ago. Blessings to you two newlyweds, Annie and Mat!

Music, in order of appearance: Amazing Grace, Sufjan Stevens
(I love you) For Sentimental Reasons, Nat King Cole
Let's Fall in Love, Ella Fitzgerald

PS--How was this two years ago?

Happy Anniversary! So exciting!
Your wedding was so beautiful, and you are such a beautiful bride!

We'll be celebrating our one year as well next month. :) It doesn't feel like it's been that long either.
Now we get to watch 2 couples of our best friends get married this month and next, and your video reminded me of how excited I am to witness them wed. :)
Thank you for sharing!
