Happy Seventh Anniversary, Bryan Mason!

Dancing on our wedding day.

So, today is our wedding anniversary, Internet.

Bryan and I have been married lo these seven years, which I hear is very good luck. Right? Right! We’ve been together for nine years, which officially makes us saints. (Especially the me part of us. Trust me. I am the Mother Theresa of married chicks, but with shorter skirts and more tequila.)

Every so often, one of you emails asking about what happened at our wedding — what we wore, where it was, what we ate. You think you’re having trouble finding it on the site. Wrong! You’re sure that if you look hard enough, you’ll find my wedding day shoes and a full list of our readings. Not true!

The truth is, we were married about a year before everyone started sharing details of their weddings publicly. At the time, it was considered a little too personal, unless you happened to have eloped. This is because we are very, very old. (WHAM! Orbitz! What are roller blades? ) So I’ve decided that this week is the wedding tell all.

Are you getting married right now, you sweet young thing? Congratulations! Here’s yet another dose of the giant stash of wedding porn that is the Internet.

Happy anniversary, Bryan R. Mason. You continue to be a very nice young man, and I love you.

    Happy Anniversary! I am, indeed, getting married right this very minute. Or rather, in 4 weeks. But to hear everyone’s reactions, it’s rightthisveryminute. I’m looking forward to hearing wedding details this week, as it’s never too late to find good ideas!

  • jenG Says:

    Congratulations! You guys make marriage and other grown-up stuff look like so much fun.

    One of my favorite couples just celebrated their 10th anniversary and posted a picture of their invitation…which included a link to their wedding website at homestead.com.

    That took us all back a bit. :)

  • Lisa Anderson Says:

    Well isn’t that funny – today is ALSO my 7th anniversary to my dear husband. And we have also been together 9 years – well 9 years and a couple months as we met in Aug of 2001.

    The years had gone quickly and oh so much has changed…especially the fact that so much more about our lives is shared daily for sure!

    Happy Anniversary!!!

  • Mandy Ford Says:

    LOL – we were married on 10-11-03 too! It definitely was before everyone shared all of the details, although I was totally addicted to The Knot back then. :) Happy Anniversary!

  • Nichole Says:

    Happy anniversary, Mighties! That is a beautiful dress.

  • ally Says:

    Maggie, I don’t know about that! I’ve been reading your blog since before you were married, and I recall the red shoes and the fabulous homemade wrap around bridesmaid skirts.

    Can’t wait for even more details this week!

  • Nothing But Bonfires Says:

    Hurrah! Happy anniversary, Masons! To another seven years and another and another and another!

  • Desiree. Says:

    Happy Anniversary, lovely lady (and her man). May the next seven years somehow find a way to top the last seven.

  • Sophia Says:

    Congrats to you both. Tomorrow, October 12th, my husband and I will be celebrating our 7th anniversary!

  • Sarah Says:

    Awesome Maggie! Happy Anniversary! My hubby and I have been together 9 years too and our 7th anniversary is next week. Some of our wedding is online, but not like the newbies do now. I can’t wait to relive a little ’03 wedding action with you this week.

  • Jennifer Says:

  • nelking Says:

    Happy Anniversary to you Masons!

    Just got back Saturday from my surprise 20th anniversary Oregon Road Trip.

    As our waiter wished us on Friday evening.

  • Kate @ Savour Fare Says:

    Ahh, happy anniversary! Though I would like to point out that I have been married seven and a half years, and although people didn’t spill the beans on blogs back in our aged day, I had a “journal” over on the wedding channel in which I obsessed at length over “STD’s” (save the dates — get your mind out of the gutter!), the availability of peonies in March, and toile tablecloths to a bunch of perfect strangers, some of whom are now my best friends. The internet is a strange and wonderful place.

  • Stacee Says:

    Happy anniversary! I started reading your blog after seeing your wedding photos on Flickr — I loved your dress/style that much. No surprise, I’m still reading all these years later.

  • tea_austen Says:

    Happy Seven, Masons! You two are one of my “Great White Hope Couples” (hope that marriage doesn’t ruin all the fun).

    The fact that, having now met you, I feel this even more strongly? That’s just awesome.

    Have a wonderful day!

  • Daffodil Campbell Says:

    I am not 100% sure what the hell you are doing in that photo (perhaps a little extra tequila on that day of days?) but congratulations are certainly in order.

    Bravo, and well done, you.

  • Meg Says:

    David just walked by and looked confused and then said, “Oh, I thought that was a picture of us.” And I said, “no, just kind of similar.”

    Happy, you guys. You make marriage a good team to be on.

    (PS @Daffodil, she’s fake flamenco dancing! Can’t you see the fake castanets?)

  • Rachelino Says:

    Yay! this will be fun. Congratulations Masons!

  • Helen Jane Says:

    One bazillion congrats. You guys inspire.

  • emma Says:

    Holy wedding cake! I love that dress!! And congrats.

  • Jackie Says:

    I am married seven years this year too (back on the last day of May), and everyone told me, “Oh no, the seven-year itch!” But so far, we’re all good. ;) Happy Anniversary to you two!

  • Amy Says:

    It’s my 7th anniversary, too! 10-11-03 was a great day. :)

  • Maureen Says:

    Bryan’s blog was the first I ever started reading (when he was working the SLC Olympics.) I started reading you when you guys got engaged. I read his version of the engagement, then went over and read yours. That’s a great story. And so Bryan!

  • Matthew Says:

    Happy Anniversary!

    And, may I say, I’m glad you didn’t choose a photo with me in the background getting my groove on.

    Don’t forget to tell ’em about the crazy straws!

  • Leah Says:

    happy anniversary! I’m looking forward to reading all about your wedding :-) You are one of my style role models.

  • Kayemgi Says:

    Happy Anniversary! I love wedding details, I can’t wait to read yours!

  • Alex Says:

    Happy Anniversary!

    And what amazing timing! We’re getting married in 12 days! On our 9th anniversary as a couple nonetheless (we were 16!). :)

  • Laurski Says:

    What a coincidence! It’s my and my husband’s 7th Anniversary as well. Except we’ve been together for 12 years…does that make us super-saints?

    Happy Anniversary!
