Oh...there is nothing better than going on a secluded tropical getaway with your best friend!! We had the time of our lives!! We went to the Secrets Maroma Beach Resort near Cancun, Mexico. It was the most beautiful place! The resort was incredible, the beach was perfect, the company was amazing of course, and it was just what we needed. :)
^ Look at these beautiful pictures....I couldn't stop taking them because the landscape was so amazing!! What a beautiful world we live in :)
Our Honeymoon suite...I felt like royalty! It had a great view from the balcony, that we loved to look at as we ate breakfast.
Our favorite part: Layin on the beach all day, drinking about 3-4 Pina Coladas a day!! They were delicious! It was so nice to just relax, have nothing and no one to worry about but being together! The perfect vacation!
We found lots of stuff to keep us entertained when we weren't relaxing...Giant chess board, crashing a wedding reception dance, hanging out in the lobby listening to music, letting our Mexican sides show, and going to some of the fun shows they had going on at night. SO FUN!
And of course we loved the food...It was so fun having a bunch of different, romantic, fine dining restaurants to chose from every night, get all dressed up, and eat amazing food of all kinds!!
We had some little adventures, went on a snorkeling tour, and went through the fresh water, ocean, Cenotes (caves), and got to cliff jump and zip-line into some beautiful fresh water pools!

We even saw sea turtles, and sting rays!
These caves were incredible, the water was so clear you could see 75+ feet down.

Can we go back now?! :) such a great week!! LOVED being together, enjoying the beautiful resort and beach, finding adventures, playing games, eating great food, having neat experiences with the natives, relaxing, and getting away from everything. Sure love this man, he is SO much fun! I sure am one lucky girl! :)

Mr. and Mrs. Milne

...Finally getting around to posting about the best day of my/ OUR lives :) I feel so blessed to be married my best friend and the most incredible man I've ever known. I can't believe how fast time has flown, already over two months being Mr. and Mrs. Milne, and we're loving every second. I could not have dreamed of a better wedding. It was everything I could imagine and more!! And we have all of our wonderful family and friends to thank for that! We felt so loved having all our friends and family at our celebration. I loved watching everything come together and counting down the days until the wedding. What an exciting time. My Mom and I had so much fun together planning away, looking at countless wedding blogs and websites for ideas, getting my dress fitted, shopping for accessories, making/painting decorations, talking to decorators, searching for photographers, finding the right pictures, cake, announcements, and spending quality mother daughter time before I moved out. I could not have pulled this wedding off without her!! She has such an incredibly creative mind, and worked so hard to help me. I was in school full time, and got a new job, and extremely busy...and she still helped me plan a wedding in 3 months!! And it was perfect :) Besides my wonderful mother, I cannot even count the amazing people that helped make this day so special...From the Bachellorette Party, Bridal Shower, Wedding Dinner, Pictures, Sealing, Reception, and all that comes in between...Thank you everyone for all your help. We really appreciate it, and feel so loved! Here are some pictures of our Big Day :)

The first time he saw me in my dress...his face was priceless...i love the way he loves me :)

Bride + Groom
What a blessing it is that I get to be with this man for Eternity!!! Oh he's so good to me!
Coming out of the temple after an incredibly spiritual and touching sealing...I have never felt more joy and happiness in all my life than at that moment. I wish I could relive it over and over again. A flood of emotion rushed through me as I became forever and always Grafton Milne's Wife!!! Nothing could make me happier. I get to spend every moment-happiness, sadness and everything in between-with the love of my life!! And he's forever mine :)
It was so neat having family and friends there to share this special occasion with us...they love us so much they withstood the 110 degree AZ weather!! :)
Let the true personalities show! HA!

I had the best bride's maids and Maid of Honor! They were so helpful, and made everything so much fun! I feel so blessed to have such wonderful friends, they've always been such good examples to me and always been there for me. I am so thankful for their support and friendship.
The details...SO fun!! It is totally my personality, I loved it :)

One of my favorite parts of the decorations...our photobooth! During the reception everyone took there pics here, and it was so fun looking through them after. We had some good laughs.
Cutting the cake...
The bouquet and garter toss... My best friend Kylee caught it, we're still waiting for the proposal!
I loved dancing with my Daddy, He's always been my hero and best friend and I feel so loved and protected by him-what every girl needs. I am so lucky to have found a man to marry that has that kind of heart that will always love and protect me and our future family. And keep life entertaining and spontaneous!
And the dancing began...So I really love to dance, and I am so glad my friends and family shared this love with me for the night. We all had a blast!! I want to do it all over again! THE most fun party I have ever had!!
So our life together begins...a life of joy, laughter, fun, love, hard work, family, friends, and celebration...could not be happier. Thank you again to everyone that helped make our wedding so special. We could not be happier. We're having so much fun starting our new lives together! Just about every day I stop and think about how lucky I am to be married to the man better than my dreams!!! :)

Oh. Life is Good!
Here's our fun little wedding music video we did...hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it :)
