We are hitched!

Yeah we are married!!!

The entire week was just wonderful. Our ceremony in Sedona was much more than I could of asked for and our reception in Phoenix was so much fun and exactly what we wanted. My mom said the photos from the ceremony spot didn't even look real, like we were standing in front of a backdrop.

Unfortunately it was raining all day Saturday before the reception. In the last 100 years it averages <1 day with rain for the entire month of April, go figure. Although we thought we were in the clear it continued to rain again around 5 for another 45 minutes. This was during our photos and the set up. The caterer's moved the tables and chairs 3 times! But just as the guests were arriving the sky opened to sunshine and a double rainbow appeared. It was gorgeous! Several of our friends including my dissertation advisor said that only Melissa and Matt would have a wedding with a rainbow. I don't know if this is good luck but we will take it as a blessing of our marriage.

I am back to the real world and need to catch up on many things. But here are a few photos my brother took from our amazing wedding weekend.
