25 Days || New York City || Elopement Photographer

I know I talk about my wedding a lot on this blog.  You’re probably thinking… “I thought this was your business blog.”  It is, but it’s also my personal blog, and right now the biggest thing in my life is the wedding, so you’ll just have to forgive me.  After next month, you won’t have to hear about it anymore.

In 25 days I’ll be a married lady.  Whoa.  It’s strange, but I feel like things have already begun to change.  I’ve been skeptical that things would feel different between us once we got married… afterall we’ve lived together for four and a half years.  It wasn’t like we would be packing up our things and moving in together for the first time.  Our lives have been intertwined for a long, long time.

But we’re not even married yet, and everyday I feel a little different.  It’s a subtle difference, but it’s there, and I’m acutely aware of it, since it’s not something I’ve ever experienced before.  I don’t even know if I can accurately put it into words… it’s not just love, but it’s also this sense of… family, I guess.  It’s a shift in our current dynamic.  A really really amazing shift.  To know that for the rest of my life, there will be this other person who will always be there for me, who will always have my back.  It sounds cheesy, but it is really the most incredible feeling.

I LOVE it when married people congratulate us and say, “You’re going to love being married.  It’s the greatest thing ever.”  That is just the best thing to hear, and I really believe it.  I think marriage is just going to make everything even better than it already is.  And it’s already pretty freaking fantastic.

I don’t want to forget this time in my life.  I don’t want to forget how I felt in the lead up to our marriage.  This mixture of excitement and nervousness and so much love.
