I was in total shock that Katy was able to pull this off while I was trying to pull off my special weekend. I couldn’t be happier to be marrying my best friend and an amazing partner. If she’s willing to kneel in the mud AND make you a Godzilla ring you know she’s the perfect person for you. We’re weird together and that’s what makes us go. I love you so freaking much … even if you are a Saints fan and roll your eyes when I bug you about watching the new @godzillamovie trailer.

You guys made this weekend even better even more special. Thanks to @hughacheson and the wonderful people at Empire State South (@essouth) for stuffing our bellies with amazing food and some extra goodies to make our celebration that much better! There are so many people to thank but I’m also overjoyed to add two new brothers in @mrpeebs84 and @berteaufasho and join Sherian and Jeff’s family.
