- Wedding: November 2012
Bo I am happy to be married! It was an…adventure filled day to say the least! We woke up at 4:30 am and got ready and got to Gatlinburg early for fear of something going wrong lol When we got to the ceremony site, the pastor was 30 minutes late! we blew it off at really didnt matter much to us. Well afterwards we had our first meal in our photographer’s car with our girls… Mcdonalds (she is a friend of ours)! She wanted to go to Cades Cove to take pictures so we did. well she was convinced parsons branch road was a short cut so we would get back with plenty of time for the dixie stampede… that was a mistake. it took us a full hour to drive 8 miles on a dirt road through running water up and down a mountain. Our poor photographer is 8 months pregnant and had to let my husband drive us out of there! Then once we found a actual road to turn out on, i don’t know who is familiar with East TN roads, IT WAS THE DRAGON. 22 hair pins turns, motorcyclists fav road! So here we are two carseats, a pregnant girl, and bride and groom up front driving the dragon. no idea where we are. and almost out of gas. Luckily someone gave us directions back to Pigeon Forge, dixie stampede switched us to the later show, and we made it! In the end we got married thats all that matters! Our friend joked she knew where she was going that this was a trust marriage exercise HAHA and I joked we were testing the speed bump into labor theory because it was a BUMPY ride! Alright Here are some pictures!
First our DIY bouquets my daughter and I did at sunrise:
My daughter during the ceremony she had no desire to stand with us so she recieved her necklace and sat and watched:
Then We were off to Cades Cove:
Then after the Chaos, extremely tired, and walking 4 miles because my husband didn’t think the Stampede was “that far” from the car:
These are just a few of the pictures I have recieved so far! All in all we will never forget the day! We are going to go on a private two night stay in January for a “honeymoon” I failed to mention early our pastor talked so fast my DH forgot most the vows LOL So we are going to write private vows to each other for our trip in January and say them to each other there. Thank You for looking!
