- Wedding: August 2013
Our wedding turned out to be more amazing than I could have dreamed. At the rehearsal we had torrential rain and hail and I was prepared to have to do the entire wedding and reception under the tent, but on the day of the wedding we didn’t see a drop!

My cousin did my hair:
And my step-sister did my makeup:
My beautiful Maid/Matron of Honor buttoning me into my dress:
It must have looked pretty good:
My $14.50 shoes!
My handsome hubby getting ready:
First look photos were the best idea ever!!!
My husband managed to cut his scalp by running into a tree branch…
I made the flowers for my bouquet and his bout out of maps since we love to travel
Bridesmaids bouquets and groomsmen/bridesmen bouts were made from book paper because I love to read
Centerpiece flowers made of origami paper, music scores, book paper, etc. Also note the jar with the citronella candle has a knot in the shape of a heart – I couldn’t resist!
It isn’t KY without bourbon! And the bases for the centerpieces were old music scores, appropriately for “The Passion”
My girls! I asked them to get yellow, knee-length dresses in a non-shiny fabric and I think they all go together great!
We brought champagne to sip on while we were going brial party photos:
My bridesmaids and bridesmen
Groomsmen high five
I’m so glad I decided to have the train cut off my dress!
My husband and his best man (identical twins) we put them in different colored shirts so people could tell them apart! (guest photo)
A suitcase fit with our travel theme
We did a ring warming ceremony

My blinged out decorations for the port-a-potties
My dad bought a suit for the wedding!
The ceremony was set up along the creek that is at the back of the property. The background is some of the 1000 cranes we folded for the wedding. The altar, cross and kneeler are from my home church. (guest photo)
We had 2 pastors, both of which were close friendsHe’s the one that got teary. I spend pretty much the entire ceremony with a huge cheesy grin on my face
We did a prayer asking for support for our marriage from all our friends and family – it was my favorite part of the ceremony!
No photo series is complete without a good photobomb!
Hubby’s fraternity brothers, including 2 of the 8 babies under the age of 1 that attended the wedding without any problems whatsoever! (guest photo)
We learned a waltz for our first dance
Neither of us remembers this at all, but we clearly felt the need to celebrate the end of our first dance with a chest bump!
Reception under the tent and along the creek, I loved having places where people could hang out and chat away from the loud music
Once it got dark…(guest photo)
Because although it was hot and sweaty, the dance floor was packed all night long!
Instead of a traditional wedding cake, we asked a dozen friends and family to make all different kinds of desserts
When we first started dating we had a debate about what was the cutest baby animal – I vote baby elephant, he votes baby panda bear, and it will probably never be decided!
Apparently somone decided that I needed to be picked up at the end of the reception like the Hora. We aren’t Jewish. You can see the death grip I have on the chair. But it was funny. (guest photo…obviously!)
It wasn’t fancy, but it was an absolute blast! And, most important for us, we really got to share an amazing day with our family and friends and we coudl really feel the love and support all day long. And we came in under budget!
