Hello, Mrs. Minter here!
The fact that Daniel and I are married is still so surreal and we’ve been having so much fun experiencing it all.
We had the best honeymoon hopping islands in Greece, we’ve been loving setting up our little apartment, and have now officially put our first offer in on a house!
Needless to say, it’s been pretty crazy here the last couple months.. but in the greatest way possible.
I’m so excited to share our wedding day – definitely the best day of our lives so far!
We of course want to keep some details private, so I won’t go too in-depth… Thanks for your understanding!
Daniel and I got married in Malibu on August 1, 2021.
It was the most perfect day and we are so grateful for everyone that came and showered us with more love than we could have ever imagined.
Something that I find so interesting is that Daniel had the nerves that day and I was the one that was super calm. Which is the total opposite of how we usually are – I’m often pretty anxious and he always has the “it’ll all work out” mindset.
I think I just took off the “wedding day” pressure from my shoulders and focused on the important fact that Daniel and I were getting married and almost nothing else mattered.
We chose our venue for the laid back yet still formal feel it gave.
The views were incredible as well and we’re so happy we picked Cielo Farms!
It felt very “us”.
Leading up to the day, I cared so much about the small details, like the exact flowers for my bridesmaids, the table setup… down to the little place card holders for our table numbers.
In the end, some of these details didn’t go to plan on the day, but I was just so happy to marry my best friend that I (to my surprise) easily waived it all off. Even the fact that my flowers totally wilted before the ceremony began was something I could shrug off.
All in all, I wouldn’t change a thing.
We did a first touch and exchanged gifts before the ceremony.
Our ceremony was so perfect and emotional. We both laughed and teared up multiple times.
My twin sister walked me down the aisle and I’m so grateful for that special moment we had.
Daniel’s best friend from childhood officiated and we agreed that was a major highlight of the day.
Thanks Cait Photo for our amazing photos!
Our reception was so much fun and we loved catching up and dancing with all our closest friends and family!
We cut the cake with Daniel’s Marine Corps sword… he insisted!
But it was actually really awesome and fun.
The whole day was a blur, but also crystal clear at the same time.
We left saying how happy we were and how perfect it all was, and I’m so happy to finally begin this exciting new chapter with my amazing husband!
