Our Wedding...

Welcome to the first ever Remember When Linky!!
Remember When... You Got Married?
Enjoy my wedding then scroll down to the bottom and add your name and the link to your wedding post (not your main blog). If you are linking a new post include a link back here so your friends can show off their weddings too. The linky will be open all week so be sure to check back to see the latest wedding flashbacks!
My hair had fresh flowers...
We really wanted the ceremony to be short and simple. It rains a lot here in February... it poured every other weekend in the WHOLE month. The week before, at the rehearsal, it was pouring... I mean sheets of rain. We were knee deep in mud and water. We had no "plan B." We must have been blinded by love... ha!
Our wedding party was large and they were all fantastic. Did Brad get thrown in the lake? Nope... I said it would be OK after the pictures and the guys respected my wish... but it never happened later!
I had to get a little silly... thankfully he was kinder to me!
I loved the dance floor! Lights and lanterns hanging from an old tree... beautiful... romantic...
Surprisingly, we stayed till the very end. We had so many out of town guests to hug and chat with. Brad kept trying to pull me away... it was hysterical. I was so exhausted after the wedding we hit up Starbucks on Main Street in Huntington before we headed to the Hyatt. We were still dressed in our wedding garb and the barista wrote "bride" & "groom" on our cups. We thought we would get freebies for sure... no luck... but we did draw quite a bit of attention from passersby!
Our wedding was a dream come true... except that I forgot the table numbers and the cater came and told me (yes the bride) immediately after the ceremony... like I could do something about it. It all works out in the end... as life usually has a funny way of doing...

Great wedding post and love the multi coloured rose bouquet.

Kimberly Eddy said...

I loved reading about your wedding, and really loved the photo comments. I linked up my own wedding reflections today for you to enjoy.

Karen said...

Your pictures are gorgeous and I so love your wedding flowers. stunning!!!!

Well I've shared my story and one picture. I was married so long ago that I only have one photo scanned to the pc. LOL

Enjoy & Thanks,
KC

Karen said...

that's NOT funny!!!! ;-)

BTW, it was my 10th anniversary that I was feeding triplets. LOL On my 5th anniversary, I think we just went out to eat, prolly took Naomi with us because we couldn't bare to be away from her. LOL

DH teases that I'll give birth on our 15th finally! LOL

Lynette said...

The wedding pictures are great.

rachael said...

Your bouquet is so beautiful! Great colors! And I love the one of you and Brad above the pic of the broken chocolate fountain (so sad)... I think I've seen him still look at you that way. The last picture should be in a magazine: your dress is gorgeous, it's framed so perfectly. I wish I could have been there! Maybe if we all renew our vows in 46 years...? (...which Jason thinks is ridiculous, b/c aren't the vows still good after all those years? I agree, but it's a fun to think about being married that long!)

rachael said...

Thanks for "making me" do the wedding post. I needed to think about that this morning and not dwell on other things that I was bumming about. And if I had known you then, you totally would have been in my wedding ;-)

jen@odbt said...

I feel like I was there. Again, love how you incorporate your posts into your photos. The last picture is my favorite.

sarah said...

How fun. I don't even know where the pictures are since we moved!

Thanks for sharing.

Musings of a Housewife said...

Your dress is just GORGEOUS. And it looks like you had so much fun! I'm off to scan some wedding photos now...

Aimee said...

Beautiful!! Your wedding was so much fun!

I'm working on my post right now. I agree with Rachael and also want to thank you for inspiring me to look at my wedding pictures again. It's been fun to relive memories!

Windy said...

Okay, first off, Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier! Because of that, I found yours;) Now, I need to scan some photos in so I will have them for the next time, but I am leaving a little post about our wedding and linking to you, better late than never, right?!

Liz said...

Thanks for the comment! I doubt that you stop learning about husbands! I signed up for this one too :)

JaMean said...

Oh how I wish I had wedding photos to share!

Yours looks just like a fairy tale. You are probably the most beautiful bride I've ever seen. You should be a model.

Thanks for sharing!!!

Lisa L. said...

So, I finally found your site by the link on Aimee's! Don't know why I can never get your emails. I remember the day very fondly and I told that caterer NOT to tell you! Oh well =( We made it work. I wasn't quite as successful at keeping people away so you could eat though =) Love and Miss you guys so, so, so much!

rachael said...

Look how many women shared their wedding day musings! I love that I'm taking a break from my work and reading about other women's weddings, women who I've never met before. So great. Gotta love being a woman.

Moriah @ Please Pass the Salt said...

Here from Jo-Lynne's.

FUN! I don't know if I can do this though! LOL. But I do have to say, I used that exact same shade of yellow for my bridesmaids dresses, it's gorgeous.

Love your photo comments. Oh, and your dress. Divine.

Olivia said...

Your wedding was lovely! That day I thought, "Wow, she is beautiful!" Being your little cousin, I think I will always want to grow up to be just like you. :) I loved seeing your pictures and remembering the day!
