Girl Meets Bulgaria

Musings of an American expat in Bulgaria (with detours in Utah and Alaska)

We Do!


On Saturday, September 24th, in front of a small group of family and friends, I married the most amazing man in the world.

It was definitely a long time coming!

We had a small ceremony at the Las Vegas Hilton, followed by a few hours at the pool soaking up the sun and enjoying some cocktails. Later that evening we took everyone out to eat at an Italian restaurant.

It was exactly as I had imagined (and desired) it to be: intimate, relaxing and, for the most part, stress-free.

I found my dress at the last-minute (think the night before). Out of everything, the dress caused me the most anxiety. Luckily, it ended up being perfect.

Vince looked so incredibly handsome in his suit.

We headed home to Utah on Sunday and spent our last few days together running errands and beginning the process for my Bulgarian visa.

Last night, far too soon, I had to see Vince off at the airport. He’s headed back to Bulgaria. If all goes as planned, I will join him at the end of December – just in time to celebrate the New Year Bulgarian style!

We are hoping to take our honeymoon sometime in the spring, probably a road trip to Croatia.

While I miss him more than words can say, I keep reminding myself that we will only be apart for three months this time. We are used to stints up to eight months. Thank goodness for Gmail video, Skype, cell phones, etc.

Now on to some photos!




More photos to come in the next few days!
