We’ve been up to some fun things here at Once Wed and had one incredible year.  As I look back over 2009, I feel so incredibly humbled and blessed to be a part of something like this. Thank you for continuing to come back every day and support what we do here. I truly hope that Once Wed brings a little happiness and beauty into your life because you guys certainly bring a whole lot of it into mine. It might be a little quiet on the blog over the holidays as we upload 200 new weddings onto the site, but we will be checking in every once in a while and plan to post a fun DIY project for New Years very soon…

Amazing. I am so happy that you are you! And Amber, these images make me lean in so close, that my nose is practically touching my computer screen. That is how awesome they are. I can’t stop looking. Can’t wait to see more!
