Happy One Month Anniversary!

I can't believe that Emily and Taylor have been married one month and three days! While this tribute and summary are late - we think of them often and hope all is going well.

Once upon a time, this handsome man,
and this lovely, happy girl
were set-up on a blind date. Three years of courting, camping, dating, enduring haggling, moving and loving lead to this blissful day of eternal promises.
Here's a complete Hansen family picture - a very rare occurrence! (Thanks to no one - I was sticking my gut out to support Addison because no one was nice enough to tell me I was looking ridiculous - consequently I look bloated/fat in every wedding picture because of my stellar posture. My mom says it's how all mom's stand so I have been stalking other blogs to verify - and it is true - however, it doesn't make me much happier with the way it all turned out.)
Emily's flower arrangements were done by Oliver's aunt and they were gorgeous. I was supposed to take one home - but it never made it to our house. However, Oliver's mom just used some of the flowers for a baby shower this past weekend and they were still gorgeous and looking fresh. She stored the extras in the garage and they kept beautifully!
In case you thought we would let a day pass without taking a ridiculous number of pictures of Addison - don't be fooled - here are a few of the dozens we have of her that day! She is such a happy girl.
Yes, in case you were wondering, Oliver is still cutting off heads in almost every picture he takes.
Someday, when I put all our pictures in a digital scrapbook, I will crop our little family shot and it will look hundreds of times better - for now, love us from a distance!
Here is the wedded, happy couple.
We wish them all the best on their new adventures. They are still living in Seattle, working, going to school, teaching school and spending as much time together as possible. We hope to see them soon and pray for their happiness and success often! We love you both!

Thanks so much Heidi!! It's really nice to read your summary because honestly the day was kind of a blur to us! We hope to see you soon too!!

P.S. I really think you look great in the photos, and didn't notice anything until you pointed it out. We are still waiting on the ones from our photographer, but maybe you will like some of those better? I think it might just be the angle.
