Holy whirlwind! I’m not even quite sure where to begin with everything that’s happened in the last week! Family and friends from all over flew or drove into Portland, we showed them the waterfalls, had an amazing rehearsal dinner, spent Friday scrambling around for last minute wedding decorations, baking cupcakes, and putting favors together all on a few hours of sleep, and then….. WE GOT MARRIED! I’m officially wifed up! 😉
I’ll do a separate wedding post when we receive all of our photos back and I would also like to share more about the ‘behind the scenes’ of the wedding. Emotions, mishaps, and all the little things that made this day so special. I won’t torture you by holding out on photos though so here’s a few that our photographer, Corey Bruce, captured. You can see more by following him on Instagram or check out his Tumblr page for full resolution photos.

And my personal favorite.. a candid I snapped on the drive back from the beach… maybe 20 minutes after the ceremony. Getting married is tiring work! haha
I’ve had exactly a week off from blogging and now I begin the daunting task of sorting through comments, emails, blog posts, and playing catch up in every other aspect of life. Married life starts with a full plate that’s for sure, but we couldn’t be more excited for our future together!
I just wanted to thank you all for your kind words, advice, and general amazingness throughout this past week. A huge thank you to our friends and family that not only made the journey out here, but put up with us being stressed out and sleep deprived, and helped us make the ceremony and reception come together that made for a day that I’ll never forget.
I hope you’re all having a wonderful week!
Love, Mrs. Erickson (!!! )
