In this episode of the podcast I got into all things wedding with Josh. We talk about why we wanted to have a wedding in the first place, and how we put together the day. 

We talk about how this year kicked our butts and what we are getting ready for in 2018! 

Plus, here are some more photos of our special day! This is just a sneak peak as we don't have the full photos yet. Thank you so much Gabriela Gandara for capturing our day! 

 One of my favorite parts was getting ready with my besties, and my two sisters! The cottage at the beautiful Langham Hotel in South Pasadena was the perfect backdrop for this!

 Our amazing planner Loriann Serna from Wife of the Party ensured that we had a moment to take in the room before all of our guests walked in.

 We had our own private dance just before we opened the room, it was so beautiful and intimate to have that time alone before we greeted our guests. We danced to "The Man in Me" by Bob Dylan. Our son's middle name is Dylan because of this song and so I was essentially crying the whole time.
