Today My Husband and I Are Celebrating Our 5th Wedding Anniversary!

(Yes, this post is a mushy one!)

I remain the luckiest girl in this world.  Today my husband and I are celebrating 5 wonderful married years together…though we’ve actually been together for 10 years total! 

Thinking back, I don’t think I would have changed a thing about our wedding.  We had a black and white wedding.  I carried a bouquet of black magic roses, wore a dress by Mon Cheri, and my bridesmaids carried bouquets of white calla lillies and wore long black strapless dresses by Dessy.  The guys wore black and white tuxes with calla bouts.  Best of all, I married my husband…who before we met, I never thought such a wonderful man even exhisted.

We married in the Catholic Church, in front of all our friends and family.  Afterwards, we celebrated over dinner, drinks and dancing during the reception.  Oh, and we can’t forget the cake.  Yum.

The night flew by too quickly (I highly suggest having your pictures taken before the ceremony, so you can spend more time celebrating than posing for the camera), and then my husband and I were off to stay at The Ritz Carlton in Chicago for four nights for our honeymoon.  We stayed in the Anniversary Suite, which we hope to eventually visit again someday.  

For now, we celebrate our anniversary every year, and our love every day!  We look forward to many more happy years together.  Marriage rocks.  If you both believe in it, stick to it, and marry for the right reasons, marriage can be the most wonderful thing you’ll ever experience! 

I’m still madly in love with my husband, and realize I’m truly Blessed.  I am one lucky girl.  Even though he claims he’s the lucky one…ha ha.  Whatever, we’re both lucky to have found eachother.  I married my best friend! 

If you’ve actually decided to read this entire mushy post, here’s something to entertain you.  The “traditional 5th wedding anniversary gift” is wood.  Riiiiight….

  7. Congrats!!! I just stumbled upon your blog! I love this post!! HOW SWEET!!!!

    for the wood anniversary gift….its all in how you interpret in….if you own a home together–this could mean kitchen makeover with new cabinets, etc. or hard wood throughout the house, etc. Those kinds of gifts could be FUN!!!
