    Of course the woman who embodies the love of large fancy things would have such a beautiful wedding in the perfect setting. When I saw the first picture I thought “That looks like The King and I.” So imagine my surprise when that is what it WAS! I am psychic, or something! I love your blog. Thank you for bringing me so much happiness! I am so glad that you have found a person to help you generate happiness. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 19 years and it just keeps getting better. I hope you enjoy the anniversary – I hope you will post pictures of the trip. I’m guessing it was micromanaged to perfection.

    What a lovely video you two look like you are still in love and there is a spark there. Nice, very nice may you have 40 more together.
    No question that you have a special husband!

    And my husband likes Paul more and more each post I force him to listen to while I read aloud.

    I’m a new reader and I’ve fallen in love. Your humor and wit and your husband’s love note that I know is something like what my husband would leave me have me smiling ear to ear. Sarcasm and love and humor and wit and frankness all rolled into one. I can’t wait to read more. Happy Anniversary! My hope is that nine years from now, as I just got married this past May, I am as funny and as graceful as you all.

    Inlove your blog but I am constantly stymied in commenting, granted I am certainly old enough to be your mother but I would really like to be relevant! Can u take a look at your messaging process?

    You two are so damn cute and, seemingly, perfect for one another. Congratulations!

    Standing ovation after that video here from the Beautiful Velez Bedroom.

    (if you don’t count the unfinished projects hanging around and the laundry in various stages of washed/foldeness)

    You will make the Duchess of Cambridge green with envy if she ever sees this ! Her wedding was a bit dowdy by comparison, quite frankly. You have a tremendous flair for making all things big, bright and beautiful…. your wedding being an excellent example of that ! I have enjoyed reading your blog for the last month or so – where I have seen many examples of your “raccoon” brilliance demonstrated . So thanks for sharing and may you have many more happy, creative and fulfilling years with your husband ! And many more years of blogging – Please !

    Happy anniversary Victoria and Paul! I hope you’re having a wonderful time, somewhere that doesn’t require renovation. Your marriage is wonderful; you and I are blessed that we found men who can put up with our reams and direction and can do anything–and well. Eric doesn’t dance like that … but he builds one hell of a cabinet! Many more happy years to you both!

    Happy Aniversary! Great blog, so great I insisted my husband put down the newspaper so I could read it to him. He nodded thru the whole thing and then picked up his newspaper and continued reading. Then he put it down for a minute and said “That stuff in the garage? Pretend it’s our basement.”

    Holy crap. That was just about the most adorable thing, um, ever. I can’t even …
