So I got married this weekend…

I have to say that all in all, it was quite perfect.  There were things that didn’t happen – like I wanted to have programs, but didn’t have time to get them done, but overall it was a beautiful ceremony and wonderful reception.  The only time I teared up was when I heard Josh’s music that he wrote for the wedding.  He used one of my favorite hymns and it got to me.  I held it together since I was sitting in front of everyone, but it was just beautiful. 

The pictures are just taken with phones as the photographer is still putting together the album.

Bridal Party


Groom and Groomsmen


Me and Josh


Flower Girls – my brother’s daughter and my cousin’s daughter.


We walked down the aisle together.  I bucked all the traditions – no bouquet throwing or cake feeding.


Saying our vows


Exchange of rings.  Matt couldn’t figure out where he was supposed to place his hand and it made the priest laugh.


After the ceremony


The wedding cake turned out more perfect than I could imagine!  I couldn’t have been more happy with the results.  Titles were a twist on some of our favorite books/authors.

I created a timeline with Scrabble boards and had bookmarks as wedding favors.  It was a big hit. 


My decorators used old books and Scrabble tiles for decorations on the tables.

The next day the car was completely full of luggage, table decorations, and gifts!
