To Start...

Let me just start by saying that I think our wedding may have been the most perfect wedding probably ever! 

Driving off after our sparkling "farewell", Chad and I talked through the day step by step and could literally find no hitch. No hurdles, no awkwardness, no drama. Maybe those moments existed, but we, at least, were blissfully unaware. 

So to start this thing off I want to say a collective and giant "thank you!" to everyone who made our day (actually our entire wedding season) what it was.

We got engaged in November of 2014 and moved to Nashville less than two months later. That left little to no time to plan our wedding in the state it would be held. Because of that, we delegated. A LOT. Friends and family back in Albuquerque more than handled what we couldn't from 1,200 miles away, and we credit every success to the wonderful people we have in our lives.

Sometime soon, we'll have phenomenal evidence in the form of photos (by Tony Gambino) and video (by Drew Schrimsher) of our day, and I'll be better able to specifically credit a big handful of people that helped us out so much. 

Until then, I'm just going to write stories and share some adventures. Because I like to journal and we already paid for this fancy website. 

Love to you all!

Chad + Bree
