Joran and I got married in September. I doubted for a while whether or not I should share our wedding pictures here (that’s why you’re seeing them with a 3-month delay). My blog centers around happy moments though, so I guess it would be only fitting to share a snippet of something that’s so dear and happy to me.

It’s hard to find the right words to describe the moment in your life where you know that you want to spend the rest of your life with that one special person. So I won’t get too mushy and I won’t make it long. Just this. Joran makes me incredibly happy. And I am grateful every day that he walked into my life.

(In case you missed it: our proposal story).

Our vows apparently made a lot of people cry ;)

Our priest looking more like a wizard makes me giggle.

We didn’t get into a fancy car. Instead, we brought our tandem bike (I think we should get Dutch points for that; and extra points for my dress not getting stuck). It was my first birthday present to Joran.

Joran and I love to go on little local tandem bike adventures together. Our unwritten rule: whoever sits in the back gets to massage who sits in front.

 photo Wedding-Sjuul-Fotografie-9.jpgWe knew right from the start that we would love to share our special moment with our loved ones for a whole weekend, with ideally enough time to talk to people for more than just a minute. We ended up finding the perfect hide-out in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by green farmland and water, lots of space to play, enough sleeping accommodation close-by for who wanted and charming boats everyone could use over the weekend.

And what would Friesland (province) be without ‘fierljeppen’?

We went on our honeymoon to the Algarve, Portugal and it was absolutely amazing.
