Erin took to Instagram to share her happiness with the fans.

 

Words cannot describe the joy, light, laughter and love that @tomdegnan and I experienced this weekend. From Thursday night's fireside chats to Sunday night's fireworks show and all of the incredible moments in between, this weekend has been the greatest time of our lives. I will always cherish the moment I entered the church and saw the smiling faces of everyone we know and love, before looking down the aisle and seeing the man I always dreamed about before I even knew him. This was all worth the wait and now I understand when people said to never, ever settle. For the 150+ people who were still holding strong at the end of the night and were able to be part of that unbelievable Piano Man finale, I cannot even think of that moment without getting choked up. It was truly an unexpected and emotional moment that will fill my heart and spirit for years to come. We thank everyone who helped to get us to this place and everyone who traveled from near and far to support us and be a part of this new chapter of our lives. #loveislove #wedding #basilicabride #notredame #weddingday #summerwedding #tdegsedegs

In addition, the couple celebrated their honeymoon in Rome and Italy. 

 

@tomdegnan and I are excited and honored that @People Magazine has chosen to share a few special details of our magical wedding. In addition to photos by @studiothisisphotography, they highlighted my stunning custom white-into-navy ombre #StatementBridal gown, designed by my bridesmaid and sister-friend Rochelle Rodriguez @rrc_sparkle, who is standing next to me in the picture. I love that my dad and Tom's dad are in the pic together, grinning from ear to ear. The hair and makeup are, of course, by another talented sister-friend, @michelinepitt (and stayed perfect from 10am-4am!). More special bits from the wedding will pop up on this page soon, but this is a fun way to start the sharing!

Everything seemed perfect and beautiful until the newly married couple found out about cancer. Just after two months, Erin found out she was diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma.         

She said,

“When we said, ‘In sickness and in health,’ we had no idea what was right around the corner,” 

Well, seems like Tom has not forgotten his promise in sickness and in health as he is doing whatever he can to help his wife fight the disease. They are very happy together and nothing can change the love that they have for each other.

Erin is very active on her social media and her posts certainly prove that they are very happy in their married life.
