I have decided to play along in a blog hop about weddings! If you would like to join in, head over to Cole's First Blog and link up your post about your special day!
April 21, 2007 was one of the best days of my life. Brian and I had been together for 7 1/2 years and we finally became Mr. and Mrs!
It was so hard for me to pick just a few pictures of our special day to share, but I did it. If anyone really wants to see more, there are 500 here. Our "main" pictures were on good old fashioned film, and at the moment I cannot find the file where we had them converted to digital images, or I would have even more!
Our wedding and reception were at a hotel in Celebration, FL. The ceremony was beautiful and was everything I could have dreamed of, and the reception was an awesome party! I may be biased, but I think that was the most fun wedding I have ever been to!
Here is my dad, the first man in my life. I couldn't look at him while we walked down the aisle because I would have cried.
Here we are saying our vows.
We had a "sand ceremony" where you pour the two different colored sands into one vase...because they can't be separated. The candle you see was in remembrance of my grandmother, and it said that on it.
I now pronounce you husband and wife.
Here we are with my parents and my "little" brother.
All of our parents.
The entire wedding party.
A fun picture of us with our friends.
Here are some of the details from the reception. The tables were so pretty. The picture doesn't really do it justice, but you get the idea.
The cake. We also had a groom's cake in the shape of the Corvette C6 Logo, since that was Brian's baby before we had real babies. Unfortunately, that picture is in the missing film-to-digital file that I can't find at the moment.
We even had our names and the date printed on M&Ms.
Here we are coming into the reception. Yes, I'm a nut. The song that was playing was "This Is Why I'm Hot" by Mims. That's just how we roll. Our first dance song was "I Could Not Ask For More" by Sara Evans.
And here is Brian's best friend Spencer giving his toast. As usual, I found him quite hilarious.
Father/daughter dance. My dad was so proud. We danced to "I Loved Her First" by Heartland. He learned the words and sang to me the whole time. I will always be Daddy's little girl.
The cake cutting. We were nice.
By the time the bouquet and the garter stuff rolled around, the party had gotten pretty wild. I told our fabulous DJ that he could play whatever people requested for the first two hours, but I wanted the last two hours to be like a night club. And it was.
We danced. And drank. And some of us drank more than others. Take my husband, for example. This picture was during our last dance. He didn't make it much past that.
What a night! I am smiling a huge smile right now because I remember how awesome it all was. Our families and friends made our wedding a night I will never forget!
And how could we forget? We got the best wedding gift we could have asked for...our precious Rylie was born 9 months later.
