I wasn’t one of those girls who grew up planning her own future wedding. In fact, the idea of getting married in front of a bunch of people terrified me. My expectations, however, couldn’t have been further from reality. In a good way. If I could bottle up all the love that filled our day, I would. If I could relive it over and over and over, I would. Although we spent many long months planning every single detail of our big day, those aren’t the things I’ll remember. Not at all. Instead, I’ll remember my dad joking about my puppy while walking me down the aisle to calm my nerves. I’ll remember Michael’s shark socks. I’ll remember our friend Jesse singing “Home” so perfectly during the ceremony. I’ll remember hand feeding everyone at the head table our wedding cake because it was so good and I wanted them to enjoy some, too. I’ll remember wearing special jewelry that belonged to each of our Grandmothers. I’ll remember not so secretly dancing to Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance in the woods during a portrait shoot. I’ll remember how beautiful everyone looked. And as sappy as this all sounds, it’s the honest to God truth. Love is all that matters.
I literally wanted to blog every single image from this day, but stopped myself from getting too out of hand. ;) If you’d like to see even more photos, our lovely photographer + my good friend Athena Pelton blogged even more several weeks back. You can see my hairspray face even, so there’s that. And because this is the internet and people may be wondering, I’ll go ahead and link as many vendors / resources as I can below. Without them ( and my amazing family + friends + Maid of Honor ), this day wouldn’t have been possible. Thank you thank you thank you. ♥
