Our Wedding {Part 1}

Just the other day I realized I've barely shared anything about our wedding day on this here bloggy blog. I didn't start blogging until after we were married, otherwise I'm sure those posts would've been filled with omg's, look at this centerpiece, how will I ever choose a napkin, etc etc etc. Even though my blog is post-wedding and even though this day was over 3 years ago, I want to share a little about it because it was literally the best day of my life. I suppose it will continue to be the best day of my life until I make babies or something bigger like that. If I could relive any day, I would choose September 24th, 2010. I was the happiest girl in the world that day and didn't think I could possibly love that man any more than I already did. Boy, was I wrong. Love is a funny thing: just when you think your heart is as full as it could possibly be, there somehow becomes room for just a little more love.

Looking back at the pictures I feel like we look like kids, and I suppose we practically were - I was 22 and Parker had just turned 21. We were surrounded by the best friends and family. We had a beautiful ceremony, a nice sunny day, and danced like crazy with our favorite people all night long.

And by the way, I did exaggerate a bit. We didn't have special napkins or anything.

Parker brought me a bouquet of roses to my parent's place that morning and we exchanged wedding day cards. We love doing cards and do them for most big holidays - I would highly recommend getting a card or writing a letter to each other on your wedding day. It will be so fun to look back at them one day and remember exactly how you were feeling. 
Don't we look cute? And sleepy...
 

We did do a first look so we could take pictures before the ceremony.
 
 
 
 
Wedding Party: Parker's best friend {Best Man}, my best friend {Maid of Honor}, Me, Parker, Parker's sister, and my brother. Also, my younger cousin (and the only other girl in the family!) was a Junior Bridesmaid, too.


I love this picture because all of us girls were waiting in the back hallway of the church for the ceremony to start. My dad was patiently taking it all in and stayed so calm amidst 4 giddy girls holding heavy bouquets.

Next week {Part 2} I'll share some pictures from the actual ceremony -
you know: walking, shaking, standing, and the good stuff (kissing)!
