Wedding Recap

Well, this post is long over due. 13 months ago today, I wrote about Andy’s proposal and 6 months ago today we became husband and wife. It is hard to believe that it has already been 6 months. On one hand, it seems like the time has gone really fast and on the other, being married has been so natural that it is hard to believe that we used to live differently.

This ended up being a crazy-long post with mostly pictures, but I think it gives a good recap, and I hope you enjoy.



I wore my Mom’s veil, earrings my paternal Grandmother gave me for high school graduation, and the necklace that my maternal Great Grandfather gave my Great Grandma on their wedding day.

When Andy found out that our friends that were doing the music and I had surprised him by playing the theme song for Rocky (one of Andy’s favorite movies) for the recessional. He loves movie soundtracks and had asked to have some of those songs in the wedding but I said no… and then we surprised him anyway. Win.

All of our BCM friends that were able to come. We love them.

Leaving our reception


We could never thank all of the people – paid, unpaid, friends, family – for everything they did to make our wedding wonderful. So many people pitched in to help out who didn’t have to. Everything turned out wonderful and most importantly, we were successfully married and are still married! Yay!

But, here are some of the ones that have businesses and I’m sure would love your support:

  1. These photos are so sweet, joyful, and lovely! I had a similar color scheme and made my own candle centerpieces as well. Happy Anniversary! Marriage is a beautiful sacrament. 🙂
