Our wedding day was Saturday, March 28. The ceremony was short and simple but wonderful.I am now Mrs. Joseph D.(J.D.) Nielson and I love it! We have been married for 1 month today. I can't believe how fast the last month has gone but it seems like much longer than that, in a good way.
Second, our flowers. I sent a picture of the bouquet that I wanted my wedding bouquet to look like.
Here is the picture. Well you will see from the wedding pictures it wasn't anything like that...apparently they thought I liked pink...and only pink! Holy hannah the bouquets were all pink with some green. For my bridal pictures I had a bouquet made by Modern Display and it was perfect and exactly what I was looking for. The funny thing is the flowers on the tables were exactly as the picture that I showed them. I'm not sure where the miscommunication happened or why they turned out all pink but they did. I'm completely convinced that I had an angel on my shoulder that day because I didn't freak out about either one. I just shrugged my shoulders and said well not what I ordered but what can I do about it now...I'm getting married today and that's what matters. If you know me even a little bit you know that is not how I react to anything. I guess my sweet husband has rubbed off on me and I didn't even realize it.I love spending every moment I can with my wonderful husband. He calms me just by being who he is. He loves to surprise me by doing little things for me. A good example was tonight when I got home from work he had already cooked dinner, set the table and was just waiting for me to walk in the door so he could surprise me. How lucky am I? He is such a good leader in our home. He encourages me to follow my dreams and is my best cheerleader...I count my blessings everyday for him and his love and peaceful influence.
So many people have asked what we did for our honeymoon. The answer...we hung out in Idaho for a couple of days then came back to Utah. The Wednesday after we got married, April1 JD had a colonoscopy scheduled. We picked that day before we were married since we were both going to be off work already and weren't going away anywhere. I am happy to report that everything is fine thank goodness. I was pretty scared that he had to have this done but we are relieved now that everything is ok.
This is a video I took when he got back after the procedure. He had been saying for several days before that he was going to be probed...guess that stuck with him in the subconscious because he was out cold for the whole procedure. Now before you think I'm mean for laughing keep in mind I didn't record myself and the tears when I saw my new husband wheeled back to me unconscious... however, when he started up with what he says on the video I couldn't resist.
JD is going to kill me for putting this on our blog but every time I watch it I die laughing. Just remember , J.D. I really do love you and there will be plenty of time for you to get even with me for this.
I have to admit I love being a Mrs.- it just suits me. I am so grateful for a loving husband who is so kind and patient. I am grateful for a wonderful family that is so supportive. My dad so generously made our wedding day possible and I so appreciate him for everything he did to make it possible. I am grateful for a Heavenly Father that loves me enough to put me through the refiners fire and tested me multiple times and led J.D. and I to each other. As we have compared the time line of our lives especially the year leading up to when we met I can't imagine there was any other choice than for us to be together. We both had things to accomplish before we met and obstacles to overcome and we did it!
Until next time...
