I'm back & I'm a Mrs!!!!!

To my handful of faithful readers, my apologies for taking FOREVER to post anything about my wedding.  Its been almost three weeks since we got married and its been quite a wirlwind, but I'll get to that in another post, for now I'm going to post some wedding pics and tell the story of our wedding day!  Enjoy :)

At the hair salon
My dress, I wish I could wear it again, I loved it!
My broach bouquet that my mom and I made, it was amazing!
My bridesmaids flowers, which my mother-in-law and I grew

My mom lacing up the back of my dress.
Our first look at the church.
Waiting for the ceremony to start with my girls.

Finally husband and wife!

The reception was a blast if you can't tell from this photo.

And at the end of the night my brother and I sang Jackson karaoke as we do at most family parties.


I have to say, I could not have asked for a more amazing wedding day.  I felt a little nervous that morning, mostly because Andrew isn't always into seeing me dressed up and I had no idea what he would think of my dress.  The weather also caused some issues, but it was beautiful that morning at the church and for all of our outdoor pictures in front of the barn.  I am so glad we rented a tent because right in the middle of our first dance, there was a storm with a lot of wind.  We had to move the food inside from another area but everything worked out fine. 

I danced the night away at the reception and couldn't have felt more happy and grateful to have so many amazing friends and most of my family there to celebrate our special day.  I will say, it does feel different to be married.

Monday, we left for our honeymoon, but I'll do another post on that adventure soon.  I'm hoping that now that so many busy events in my life have come to a close, I'll have more time to keep up on this blog!

Beautiful pictures!! :) Can't wait to hear about your honeymoon adventure! :)

And I'm curious to know why it's different being married! LOL. I'm curious because for me it wasn't at all. I dunno!
