1096 days later.

Yesterday was three years since this happened:


We kind of eloped. We have a cermony with just Cassidy and us and then surprised my mom and little brother at dinner in all our wedding garb. We’d tricked her into going to our favorite super fancy restaurant “just to have a good dinner.”

The Princess

Man, Ben has lost a LOT of weight since then! 70 pounds!

I made our little bouquets myself. This one was Cassidy’s at the dinner table.

Bella Vista

I loved every second of it. I’m so glad that we decided to not spend a lot of money on a wedding and spent that money instead on a trip to Maui. I highly recommend having a selfish wedding like we did!

Here is a picture of us in December at our good friend Julie’s wedding.


Look how much thinner Ben is! It’s like I married a man and now I’m cheating on him with his much skinner doppelganger. Which is actually kinda hot when you think about it.

ANYWAY! Three years! It took us 5 years to get to that day and looking back now I still think it was the most perfect wedding day ever. I still love him more every day and he’s still the first person I run to with good news and the first person I turn to for advise and comfort.

And STILL, he makes me laugh, at myself, every single day.

I think I’ll keep him around a bit longer.

Like forever.

  1. I’d love a wedding like yours but Alex wants to the whole thing. He has tons of friends and family and doesn’t want to leave anyone out. I seriously don’t want the fuss and would rather have a nice honeymoon!

  2. Happy Anniversary! I’m so glad you have such lovely memories of your wedding. I think that’s how it should be and you shouldn’t have wanted to do it any other way. You both look so happy together. 🙂

  3. I kind of love you two. You have always seemed so supportive and positive and in love with great communication, everything a good couple SHOULD be! Congrats!

  4. A random photo of Anna and Ben adventures popped up in my side column on Facebook, which reminded me of this post that I didn’t reply to but meant to —

    Congratulations on 3 wonderful years as husband and wife, and so many more as a pair. I feel so fortunate to have watched your love blossom at the very beginning. Ben absolutely adores you, and he is your rock.

    And YOU look stunning 3 years later yourself, Mrs. Hirsch!
