We are MARRIED (and it’s CD 1)

WE ARE MARRIED!!!! I am so over the moon happy! We got married the 18th and it was just magical. It was a small ceremony with friends and family in our backyard that was transformed into a twinkly fairy land that smelled of lavender. I can’t wait to get our professional photos back but thankfully our friends took some photos and posted them to our Wedpics account.

Here are a few pictures:

The ceremony area.  

  Us after we were married. Doesn’t he look so dapper?  Us signing our marriage license.  Our first kiss as a married couple!

Also, we decided to write our own vows. I found this website that gave an outline of general things to say…it was a lot easier. We had my sister look them over to be sure they were along the same lines and we didn’t go too crazy. We didn’t want to know what each other said.

While I was writing my vows I cried…so I knew I was going to cry during the ceremony. I will admit the moment I started walking down the aisle I started feeling the water works come on…and when we got to the vows…I couldn’t keep it in any longer. I cried, Jay cried. Then when Jay read his vows I cried even more. There was lots of crying.

Here are our beautiful vows:

Mine to Jay:

Jay, you are my best friend, my lover, my snuggle buddy, and my sunshine.

You are compassionate, dependable, and so easy to love.

You make me laugh and smile everyday.

I love you more with each smile you give me, with each loving touch, and every time you fill my car with gas.

I promise to rub your head when you are tired.

I promise to watch every episode of Doctor Who, even if I don’t understand what is going on.

I promise to be understanding, patient, and kind to you.

I promise to respect your opinions and dreams, to laugh with you and never at you, and to take care of you when you are sick and old.

I promise to always be yours.

I will walk with you hand in hand through the darkness and the light.

I will love you forever and always.

Jay to Me:

Cinthea, you are my best friend, my playmate and ultimate joy in life.

You know me better than anyone else and love me in spite of my faults.

I get to sleep and wake up next to you every day something that l look forward to for the rest of my life.

You make my happier than I have ever been and each new day more special than the one before.

With my whole heart, I promise you these things…


I promise to take care of you when you don’t feel well and bring you chocolate when you have a rough day.

I promise to laugh with you when you are happy and to hold you when you cry.

I promise to be faithful and supportive and strive to be worthy of your love each day.

I promise to aid and abet if asked because as your husband, I cannot be compelled to testify against you in a court of law.

I promise to always love you and never leave you.

I love you with all my heart, you are my forever love.

Now…I didn’t test wedding day…mainly because Jay had hidden the pregnancy tests. The day after the wedding I did test…negative. The next day…negative. The following day negative with a tinge of spotting. Today…negative. Started period. Sigh. Here we are back at CD 1. Boo! I was holding out a small amount of hope that round two of Clomid had worked. I am so hesitant to do another round…especially when it’s so close to me going back to work. I go back to work next week for three days and then August 3rd the kids come back. If my emotions are like they were this last round I won’t be able to go to work. I am, of course, going to do it but I am a bit scared.

    Congratulations! The photos are gorgeous! Our colour was a dark purple too, I even had purple shoes. Man I love those shoes. I need to go out somewhere so I can wear them again hahaha.
    I am sorry about round 2, ours was a bust too. If you are not sure about a round 3, maybe talk to the doc about other options?

      I can’t wait to the pro ones! I’ll be sure to share. We did shades of purple with lavender as our scent with a lavender toss. It was so romantic. My doc is my regular Obgyn and seems not to be too big into fertility treatments except 3 round of Clomid then send you to a specialist.

        That sounds amazing.
        Fair enough about the doc, our doc didn’t even do that, we were sent to a specialist and he put us on Clomid.

    Congratulations!! I absolutely love your dress! And your vows were so cute. My husband and I also wrote our own vows. Yaaaay! 😊

      I fell in love with my dress because it felt so 1920’s and I love the 1920’s! He did a good job on vows and then for my wedding gift bought me a bracelet that had the end part of his vows inscribed on it. One side says “all my love for you” and the other says “my forever love”. It made me cry. So glad I had waterproof makeup on! I’ve been looking into a way of displaying our vows as art in our house.
