Becoming Taylor White

Last April, Ben and I got married in Amelia Island, Florida. My family has been going to Amelia Island for years, so it is a very special place for us. At one point in time, Ben's sales territory with his first job out of college covered the small island. Little did he know he would be returning there 
one day to get married. 

Our wedding is definitely one of THE most exciting days of my life. If we're being honest here, I did not enjoy planning a wedding. Wanting it to be perfect, so many ideas on Pinterest, coordinating so many groups of people, and trying to make sure everyone is happy with all of the decisions almost did me in!  However, it is SO true when they say it all comes together and to enjoy every minute of it. I woke up with an overwhelming calm feeling and the mindset that I was just ready to get to the party. We had an absolute blast! We totally missed the late night snacks (cheeseburgers, curly fries, chicken-n-waffles….ugh!) passed around during late night. I don't think I ever left the dance floor.

The best advice I can give anyone planning a wedding is to a) EAT! (We had an sit down dinner, so it forced us to get something in our stomachs) and b) load up on your immune system vitamins before wedding week. Ben and I were both worn down and fighting something yucky that week. Luckily, we were able to get through it all and enjoy every minute of our honeymoon. I'd consider doing it all over again if it meant having another honeymoon. Here's to saving for an anniversary trip!

Happy Monday! Have a great week.
