Well, we did it!
Q and I tied the knot on October 11th in a really amazing, pleasant, perfect ceremony. Everything went so much better than we anticipated. I still find myself feeling so unworthy of the beauty of that day! We had PERFECT weather, we were surrounded by so many loving family members and friends, we had TWO wedding cakes, and my hair only frizzed a little bit (I had a bit of a “fro bang” by the time the ceremony was over).
There isn’t enough time to tell you about all the amazing miracles that God performed in the weeks leading up to the wedding. Things were really stressful, really difficult, and then BAM, worked out like MAGIC at the last minute. It got to the point where Q and I just stopped being stressed out. We knew that God was going to fix everything. On the day of my wedding, I was just so sure that God was in control. People kept commenting on how calm I was. The truth is, I’d seen God do so many impossible things that there was no need to start being stressed day-of. And I’m glad I wasn’t, because I was able to enjoy a really beautiful and special and memorable event.
As lovely as my wedding day was, I am so happy it’s over! Wedding planning is no joke, especially when you work 10-hour-days, and also freelance, and also write a blog (which is why I haven’t written a post in weeks)! On top of that, Q and I moved into our first place the weekend before the wedding (I would not recommend that to ANYONE), so things were just INSANE. September and October have been the most hectic months of my life, and I’m so glad that things are slowly returning to some normalcy (well, a “new” normal) and that I finally have the time to do the things I love again.
I can’t wait to share our actual wedding photos and video, but these are just a few iPhone snaps from friends that I posted on Instagram. You can find more from the wedding by searching the hashtag “QK14” on Instagram and Twitter. And thanks so much to all of you who have left awesome congratulatory comments. I’ve read them all, and I’m very grateful.
