The pics are a bit fuzzy and non-pro, but I wanted to share nonetheless!
Originally our wedding date was 5/26. After losing our minister (he got a job out of state) and some major father of the bride drama, we decided to move our exchange of vows up 2 months and get married early! That way, we still got our minister (who was AWESOME). We had a small ceremony with our parents, children and witnesses.
My dad decided to attend at the last minute- but all in all it was a lovely day! We were married in the a.m. and we wrote our own vows. His were AMAZING. He is my best friend and the love of my life! I loved that the minister built into the service – a unification piece that talked about our families blending together and that our love for and respect for our children being vital to a healthy marriage.
After the ceremony, we had a family style brunch (chicken and waffles!) and went bowling. We got bowling T shirts that said “groom” and “bride” and had cake and good music. Everyone had a blast!
Of course things weren’t perfect- perfect would have been waiting until May…. but oh well- life isn’t perfect. I am so happy to be his wife and since we are having a family reception in May, I get to wear my dress TWICE!
And now for the non-pro pics!

Thanks for the positive vibes Bees 🙂 – this is a very happy time in our lives! As a person who is a bit self conscious about my weight, I was a bit nervous to post, but I am glad I did :)…
I can’t wait until after our family celebration in May, when we will have a small family reception and a photographer!
