Our Wedding: Mishaps + Memories

Wow guys, here it is! What might be the last wedding post I ever right (unless there is something more wedding related you want to see). I have loved doing #WeddingWeek here with you guys and sharing all our amazing pictures, wedding decorations, and more! I think you guys have enjoyed it almost as much as me, if not more! 

To wrap up #WeddingWeek I thought it would be fun to share some of the things that went wrong and some of my favorite moment of our wedding day! I have been dying to share this post with Y'all literally since the wedding day happened becuase there were some moments that were just TOO funny.

Our Wedding: Mismatched Bridesmaids Dresses + Unique Bridesmaid Gift Idea

Let me just preface this post by saying that I have the best bridesmaids ever. I mean, seriously, they didn't care that it took me forever to decide what I wanted their bridesmaid dresses to look like AND I changed the color scheme probably 5 times before saying, "eh, this will work" and going with mismatched bridesmaids dresses from Adrianna Papell.

Our Wedding: My Wedding Day Look + Extra Details

My wedding day look was absolutely everything I dreamed it would be. I wanted to look comfortable, myself, and most importantly, beautiful. I was so afraid, given how critical I am of my body, myself in pictures, etc. that I would get our photographs back and absolutely hate the way I looked but I'm happy to report that's not the case! Liza, our wonderful photographer has a way of capturing such natural beauty. I have never looked at one of the pictures she's taken of me and thought I looked bad. That's an art form, in my opinion.

Darrian and Justin | Vlog 81 | We Moved to Georgia!

The last month has been a whirlwind but you guys, we finally moved to Georgia! We spent two days driving from New York to Georgia for our first Army move. The puppies and Justin and I are all doing fine and excited to move into our new house on Monday! I'm sorry this vlog is a little all over the place. I wanted to do a lot more with this moving vlog but it just got so complicated with all of the driving (Justin drove the U-Haul while I followed in the car with the dogs). We are having so much fun exploring our new town and can't wait to share all of the exciting things to come with you guys. Also, you can follow @TheChambleeHouse to see behind-the-scenes of our home before next weeks vlog!

Darrian and Justin | Vlog 80 | Our First MARRIED Date Night!

Y'all it's our first MARRIED date night! Can you believe it's been almost two weeks since we got married? Neither of us can so we figured it was about time for our first married date night! We plan to have a date night as husband and wife at least once a week throughout our marriage! We are firm believers that date night in relationships is super important. For our first date night as a married couple, we went to our favorite local restaurant and then went to the movies! At the movie theatre, Justin talked me into playing an arcade game and it was SO MUCH FUN! I love that he makes me be a little spontaneous and feel like a kid again! We also have a mini bonus date where we spent Sunday hiking at Bear Mountain!

How We're Dealing with Loss (During a Time of Celebration) | Darrian and Justin

The last two weeks of our lives have been a roller coaster of emotion. Justin graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point and found out about the death of a close family friend. Then less than a week later, we celebrated our wedding day and a day later found out that Darrian's grandfather (Papap) had passed away. We knew immediately that we needed to sit down and share our experiences with you about how we're dealing with loss during a time of celebration because it can be so difficult to know when to be happy and when to be sad. We hope you find encouragement from this video.

Darrian and Justin | VLOG 77: Two Weeks Until...

Can Y'all believe that there are only two weeks left until our West Point journey comes to an end AND we get married?! It's so crazy. In today's vlog Justin and I went to West Point to load up the car with some of his things and tried to get some awesome pictures for the 'gram because of how pretty the trees around West Point have been! Unfortunately, it rained... a lot. We did end up getting a few pictures before the total downpour started, though! This vlog also makes it look like all we do is eat...
