So, clearly it’s been a minute since I have logged in here. My husband and I moved an hour away and were without internet for a while! I don’t remember what exactly I posted about my wedding plans, but when I was on here frequently my husband and I were planning a private ceremony with a reception in a barn.
Well, that fell through… Two weeks before the wedding! I let myself cry about two tears before I headed over to my aunts and began planning. We decided to get back to our original plan which was small and intimate and we decorated her back yard. I am so glad we did!
I got ready in the upstairs guest bedroom. Thirty minutes before “go” time my aunt asked me where my bouquet was…. Uh? Bouquet?… She and my cousin (who was my one and only bridesmaid) ran out to the garden and threw one together for me!
We were married under a tree in the back yard with only my parents, my best friend, and my aunt and uncle watching. My younger cousin officiated it, his sister was my maid-of-honor, and my oldest brother played acoustic guitar.
Afterwards the hubs and I headed off with our photographer friend to take pics while my family got everything ready for the reception.
Pretty soon family and friend showed up for the reception… it was very small. Onlyy maybe 40 people were there. I am SO glad I did it that way! We had a dessert table and had barbecue and beans. I won’t bore you with all the group photos, so here is a few before everyone got lit on moonshine. ;p
