One month ago today I got married! Since we’re all still getting know each other around here, this is the reader’s digest version of our relationship. We met at work. He was the head bartender, I was a waitress. We knew each other for about four years before we started hanging out (see: spending every day together). Two and a half years later we had Otto. Another two years later we had Eddie. Seven years after we started dating he proposed on Christmas Eve at my dad’s house, and eight and a half years later, we got married! See. Quick and easy.
We had some amazing friends taking pictures are at the wedding, and I can’t help but shout how awesome everything was! We seriously wanted to do the whole thing again the very next day…and we had wedding cake for breakfast. No joke. Below is some of the wedding porn from the amazing Kate and Laura. Have fun, and geek out on the happiness with me!
We did “first looks” – where you see each other for the first time before the ceremony.
The “something blue” on my shoes says “Mrs. Kotzbach Est. 3.14.15”
Mike and I play drums in a bagpipe band, and our pipe major Len played me down the aisle.
OMG our boys held hands on the way out!
We (my amazing friends Jen, Tony, Jaime, and I) made 300 paper gardenias and origami hearts for the ceremony & reception.
My awesome friend Kelly from Live.Laugh.Rowe made out custom cake toppers. They were dressed to match.
Best day ever!
