Chance and I got married 5 years ago B.P.
But even without that amazing creative outlet, my mother planned a beautiful wedding in about 3 months on a budget! Nice job Mom!
(All of my wedding photos are on a CD in our storage unit so these are from the blog and FB)
We were married in the church I grew up in. It is a beautiful baptist church in my hometown. I had wanted to get married in the church my mother was married in, but they wouldn't allow my pastor or my puppy (it was my grandparent's Lutheran church). So my church it was :)
Wish I had all of my photos now. This is the best one that shows the colors. Coral and blue. This is my best friend Emilee (MOH) and my flower girl Maggie. My two besties in one photo :)
My ladies included my sister Sara (Matron of Honor), Emilee (MOH), Steph and my sister-in-laws Robbie and Rayna :) Love all of them.
Chance's men were his brother Ryan (best man), his best friend Noah, Blake, Devin and Michael.
THERE WAS NO DANCING AT OUR RECEPTION :)
But we did walk down the aisle afterwards to our song:
"Home For Me Yet" By Marc Broussard
My parents surprised us with a honeymoon in Branson, MO. It's close to home, not outrageously priced, and somewhere Chance and I already loved and they knew we'd enjoy it there! I took one picture on our honeymoon. ONE!!! We did so much there. Visited Em's parents at the lake, shopped, Titanic museum, and the Dixie Stampede. We got to be a part of the show at the DS. It was the highlight for sure :)
WHAT WOULD YOU CHANGE
Not much. I would have loved to do one of those choreographed dances with my bridal party and groom, but I didn't think of it and like I said. No Pinterest yet :) But my wedding was beautiful and it was a day that started the best journey of my life so far. I'm thankful for all the hard work my Mother did in putting it all together and for everyone who supported us and still does today.
8 days until our 5 year anniversary :)
Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.
