I’m forever part of a team. A “Mrs.” John’s wife.
Our weekend of joy started with a big snowstorm, and it is being extended with family in town longer than planned due to Hurricane Sandy. While we are praying for all to be OK for everyone back East, we are super happy for the extra time with them.
I don’t have lots of time in these few days between “I do” and “What kind of cocktails do they make in Tahiti?”, but I thought I’d share just a few photos from both the welcome dinner (a proper Southern shrimp boil) and the wedding (let’s just say that we put on a good party).
I have never felt so much love!
I’ll have so much to share with you, after the wonderful chaos dies down a bit. For now, I have family to spend time with, a new last name to get used to, a wedding band to show off, and a honeymoon to pack for.
Last night, I mentioned to my new father-in-law that I was starting to feel a little bit sad that it was all over. And he said to me, “No, no. This is just the beginning.”
you looked absolutely beautiful
Thank you. I wish I had a hair and makeup artist for every day. 🙂
you’ve got good “bones”
Beautiful dress! Have fun!
Thank you so much!
A massive congratulations to and your new husband as you begin your new journey as husband and wife! You looked stunning, loved the dress!
I kind of want to wear my dress around the house. It feels so glamorous! Thank you!
He’s right it’s just the beginning! Your dress is gorgeous and you wore it so well. Love getting a sneak peek at your special day. Cheers and congratulations!
Cheers and thank you!!
Beautiful! Your happy seems to be rubbing off on me. I’m grinning from ear to ear after this post. Have a fantastic honeymoon! -Rene
That makes me so happy! Contagious smiles!
You looked so beautiful!!!! Love love love your dress. Congrats!! I hope you have a fabulous honeymoon. xx
You’re next, pretty girl!!
I thought about you on Saturday and imagined you having the most incredible day ever. The only thing better than that lovely dress is how radiant you and your husband look together.
Those are such sweet words! THANK YOU! (Husband! Eeee!)
Eeeeeeee! 🙂 So EXCITING!
Amazing pics- can’t wait to see more :). You’re a stunning bride. Love your dress. Love your hair. REALLY love your Choos. Hope your big day was perfect! Congratulations!!
Choos! The big day was perfect in all of its little imperfections. I can’t wait to see more pics, either!
A whole lotta love in one little post! So excited for you guys. Also? Feel the sudden urge to re-do my wedding so I can copy all of your cool ideas 🙂
I feel the sudden urge to re-do my wedding too. It was SO MUCH FUN.
YAY! I am so, so happy for you! It seems odd to be cheering for the happiness of someone I’ve never met, but I don’t even care. I was sending you lots of joy on Saturday!!
(Also, “HOT WIFE ON BOARD” — love it!! And I think this is my favorite pic, though they are all so lovely: https://theusualbliss.files.wordpress.com/2012/10/john-ber-timp.jpg)
Congrats again! Here’s to wonderful beginnings. 🙂
That one was snapped on a friend’s iPhone and I agree, it is such a great photo. It hadn’t even sunk in by that point that we just got hitched! Wait, it still hasn’t!
CONGRATULATIONS!!! I am so happy for you guys – seeing people in love is one of the greatest things in the world. your dress is gorgeous, YOU are gorgeous, and your love is gorgeous 🙂

Haha, a friend decorated John’s truck without us knowing. It was so cool!
Amber, you are gorgeous, that dress is gorgeous! And, it looks like an amazing party. Enjoy the extra time you get to spend with your family and of course CONGRATS!
My feet are still hurting from all the dancing! Beach sand will make them feel better, I suspect.
AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING! Your life is full of so much love – I couldn’t be happier for you.
I could say the same for you! Bob Marley is coming soon!

Ohhhh my GOODNESS! Beautiful pictures as usual, but this time they have a beautiful bride in them! Your dress was absolutely stunning – I love classic, simple gowns almost as much as I love flowers 🙂 So happy that your celebration and BEGINNING was perfect and looking forward to reading more.
