{happy anniversary} josh + marci 6.26.10

seriously... it's already been a year since you guys became man + wife??!?! 
where's the time gone?  and how has it taken me this long to blog their wedding...? 
better late than never right?

... on to the real message of this post ...

:: Josh + Marci :: 
like a said above, how has a year already zoomed past us since the day you two said your vows?  
i sure don't know, but what i do know is that my life has been greatly blessed having the two of you in it!  not only did i have the honor of helping plan your most special day {to this date at least}, but i am even more honored to have gained a friendship with you both.  Josh, i know how valuable your friendship has been to my hubby through the stressful law school years and now carving out legal careers for yourselves. and Marci, you have been a bright ray of sunshine in my life ever since we began planning your big day, i thank God that our friendship continued on past our planning together, you make me laugh and i love that we can spend hours on end chatting about life, marriage, future plans and our terrible addiction to wedding blogs!  ok, ok, enough with the sappy stuff, but honestly thank you both for the opportunity to not only take part in the planning, and to be able to witness the start of your marriage, but to also have the great pleasure of watching your marriage grow this past year... love you guys!

now here are some highlights from their wedding at Rancho Capistrano on 6.26.10
