First Month of Wedding Bliss

Today marks our one month anniversary since the day of our wedding! We thought it would be a perfect day to return to the blog and update you all on what’s been going on with us.

First things first. The wedding! The first month has gone by so quickly and pretty much in a blur. However, that day still remains so clear in our memory. I can honestly say that aside from the day I was saved, it was the best day of my life. 🙂  There were no disasters or catastrophes, the weather was perfect amidst weeks of rain surrounding the day, everyone did their part beautifully, and at the end of the day I was married to by best friend. I could not have asked for a more perfect day. We felt God’s blessing on us that day as we vowed our lives to each other and determined that together we would serve Him. It was wonderful to have so many friends and family members celebrating with us, many from all over the country. There were a total of 98 concurrent LIVE connections of people watching our wedding ceremony! We have many pictures to share with you and once they’ve been made available we will let you know.

The day after the wedding we hopped on a plane and headed to Cancun, Mexico for a time of relaxation. I asked Benjamin to surprise me with the honeymoon location and I was thrilled when I finally got to see pictures of the resort where we would be staying. It was right along the Riviera Maya, a beach that just took my breath away! White sand and all different colors of blue swirling around in the Caribbean Sea. The view from the plane was amazing! We stayed at the El Dorado Moroma, an all-inclusive resort and enjoyed every moment. There were several restaurants to choose from and unlimited room service! Cappuccinos and chocolate cake in the room every evening! 🙂 We mostly stayed at the resort and enjoyed the amenities there, other than our one outing on the wave runner, which was so neat with all the water color changes. We only crashed on a wave and fell off once. 🙂 Which was an adventure in and of itself! We chose to spend the week relaxing and enjoying each other’s company after the craziness of the wedding and Ben’s preparing the house for our return.

So now we’re getting settled here into our new home! More on that to come…

  1. Benjamin and Alyssa!!! It was such an encouragement to see how the Lord has brought you together and the testimony of purity your lives have portrayed! Thank you for letting the light of Christ shine through you both and touch others, even through your website 🙂

    Alyssa, I have thought about you often ever since our family moved away from WA in 2007, and have wanted to get back in contact with you, but I will not hold you to responding as you are fully occupied with the love of your life now 🙂 Although, if you would like to respond I would be delighted 😉

    Praise the Lord for His abundant blessings and we hope and pray that this new chapter of your life will continue to be filled with awe and wonder as you both seek Him with all your heart, soul, mind and strength…together! Y’all are a blessing, and well look forward to seeing you, Alyssa, again, and Benjamin, for the first time someday in the future if the Lord sees fit to cross our paths.

    Blessings,
    ~ Anna for the family
