The wonderful Jason Harper officiated. Our Mamas read from Corinthians. My dad walked me down the aisle and gave his blessing on behalf of my family. The ceremony was short and sweet. These were our vows:I take you to be my husband. I give you my hand, my heart, and my soul and know that they are safe with you.
Let this ring be a constant reminder to you that in all conditions, under every circumstance, I am always on your team because your happiness is inseparable from my own.
We had the best flower girl and ring bearer ever!
The boutonnieres, corsages, and bouquets were arranged by Rachel, Mercedes, Alicia, and me. Then distributed by the wonderful Shelley, who was so extremely helpful with everything.
Alicia went out to her boyfriend's family farm to pick fresh flowers for the centerpieces.
Our friend, Randall, played the cello for the ceremony.
Our friend (and owner of Eastside Pies, where Nate was working at the time), Michael, made our beautiful wedding cake. Nate painted our love bird cake topper. I'm looking forward to digging into that top tier a little later today....
Our family cooked the food. My Dad and Uncle Charlie smoked a bunch of brisket, made beans, and creamed corn. Our aunts and uncles, my Grandma, our sisters, and our parents helped make all the food, set up for the wedding and reception, and clean up after. What an amazing feat to feed 150 people!
As always, my sis was right by my side making sure everything ran smoothly.
These two worked incredibly hard to make sure we had such a nice wedding. We are eternally grateful!
Our loved ones sent us off with sparklers in our saturn.
We couldn't ask for a more perfect way to start our marriage. We were surrounded by our very favorite people. I didn't really imagine myself as the "marrying type" until I fell for my perfect match. I didn't imagine that I could ever be this happy.
