August Weddings and Anniversaries

It’s the end of the month, which means it’s time for APW weddings and anniversaries (details on how to get involved at the bottom of the post!). It’s such a joy to end the month this way, cheering for all of you about to have your wedding, but more importantly celebrating all of the married couples. Because the wedding is just the beginning…

    some of my favorite people are in this list! (…not that i play favorites…)

    and thanks for listing meg’s blog. very helpful, that.

    • meg

      Just in case you want to find it.

  • I want to love all over this! (sounds grosser than I meant it).

  • GAH! I don’t know why I got so ridiculously excited to see my own wedding!

    Also, Helen and Lindi, I swoon every time I see that photo. Every. Single. Time.

    • Aw, thank you. :) I love that one. Actually, I love all of the ones where we just ran out into the rain. It was SO much fun. :)

      Congrats, all you August lovebirds!

    • me too with the swooning! every time!

  • Hooray! Congratulations to everyone!

    And I love that my first reaction to “Sarah and Jon, August 14, 2010” was “OH CRAP! WRONG DATE!” Ha … keep scrolling, Sarah.

    • Sarah

      Hehe as the Sarah of that Sarah and Jon I did a full on double take when I saw you guys on the 15th :D almost name and date twins… Spooky!!

  • Love that Meg just casually sneaks herself into the mix. Well done.

    • meg

      Alyssa does these posts, not me ;) Though I did provide a classy iphone picture (but I edited it, because I’m type A).

      • I would expect nothing less.

  • I love this. Alyssa, you made my day.

  • ahhhh so many familiar faces this month!! so much happy.

    best wishes for upcoming august weddings!

    • So true . . . it’s funny, because I don’t have everyone’s blog on my reader and so I see them posted and am all, “GAH! What is so-and-so up to these days?!?!” This time it was, “Has Meghan had her baby yet?!?!”

      I love this, it makes me happy every month.

      It also reminded me that I’ve got a wedding anniversary coming up.

  • Kate

    Ooh, I love the drape of Caitlin’s dress mixing with the drape of that pink ribbon… so pretty.

    Congratulations/happy anniversary to all!

  • SO much fun!! Thank you Alyssa! This totally made my day!

  • My work productivity drops precipitously when these are posted every month. Not just for the pictures (dear god Helen and Lindi, seriously, for real) but also because everyone has awesome blogs and THERE IS TOO MUCH AWESOME TO READ ON THE INTERNET.

    Sigh, #firstworldproblems . . .

    • Heh. That was totally the photo that everyone liked the best from my grad post. :) Thanks! And also, yes, it is really hard to concentrate on work-y things when there are so many awesome people on the internet. Seriously.

  • Yay for being in good company! :)

  • Yay everyone!

    Alyssa, I have to confess, though, that I am neither Dutch nor Thumb, and that I’m not getting married on August 27 (already have done the deed). I will still except congratulations on that day, though.

  • Jo

    Hooray August! This is so excellent!

  • Wow, it totally made me feel SO special to see my name up there! Thanks APW for really making everyone a part of the community. Can’t wait to do my wedding grad post!

  • Congratulations to all the awesome August couples!

    Is Erin (of Brandon and Erin) wearing a dinosaur mask/hat? If so, AWESOME.

    • meg

      Personally, I think she should be a wedding graduate or do a wordless wedding or something ERIN CALL ME.

  • Congrats to all the couples!

  • Erica

    High five Meg and the other August 9thers–I’m about to join your club! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEk is about how I feel. xo

  • The M half of M & J

    I’m so excited to see us on here! (I’ll admit I got a little misty.) And I promise the lack of picture isn’t from an irrational fear of personal info on the interwebs. I even have (and love) a Facebook. I just want to clarify that our August wedding was a sort of secret, legal-only thing. So it makes me extra happy to see it here, because we don’t get to shout from the rooftops just yet. Thanks for including us, Alyssa!

  • Paige

    sad i didn’t make the list:(
    getting married Aug 6th as well.
    congrats to everyone!!!

    • aww well, you’ll just have to send in a pic for your anniversary next year. happy wedding this weekend!
