This week at Kelly's Blog for Show Us Your Life the theme is Wedding Party and flowers/ceremony.
Justin and I married almost a year ago, August 8, 2008. 8.8.08. I love that it is so easy to remember. :)
We got married in the church where we met by our pastor whom we both adore!
Their dresses were a gift from me. A couple of my girls were having financial troubles and could not afford an expensive dress. I found these dresses on sale for $18 bucks each and bought them for the girls. :)
The whole wedding party was a bunch of fun. The best man was a good friend of both of ours, Ty. The other groomsmen were great friends of Justin's, Dustin and Andrew.
We chose to see each other before the wedding, and I'm glad we did. It helped with nerves sooooooo much. We got to see each other and talk privately. Plus it gave us more time to get pictures, and freed us up for the reception immediately after the ceremony. I'm not very traditional.
Our music was a surprise to most. We did not use any traditional wedding music. It was fun. We had Coldplay, Frank Sinatra, etc.
The other surprise was a surprise even to me! We were standing there waiting for Pastor Tom to say the magic words, "you may kiss your bride". Justin whispers, "I'm about to make out with you" and smiles with his best dippled smile. I freaked out for a half a second, and then this picture was taken...
It was a beautiful and great day. One I'll never forget as long as I live.
