On October 26th 2017 I stood before my dearest friends and family, to marry my Highschool sweetheart. What a redemptive day it was. From being walked down the aisle by my son, to weeping as we said our vows to each other and our children. This wasn't just two lives becoming one, but two families as well. We are all so blessed to have each other.
Many of you have seen the Vlog of our special day, but our photographs were too incredible not to share as well. Done, as always, by my unbelievably talented friend at Magnolia Adams Photography, she managed to capture so many amazing details.
I love all the behind-the-scenes look at our family getting ready. I especially loved the shocked look on my daughters faces when they saw me in my dress for the first time. Speaking of daughters, Ellis was not having it on our wedding day. She was tired, cranky and in desperate need of a nap. In this spirit, she decided she was going to sleep through most of our photos, or just look completely bored altogether. I can't complain too much, because it is an entirely "two-year-old" thing to do, and one day we will look back and laugh at her stubbornness.
I loved how in most of the photos the groomsmen were fidgeting or laughing. I loved the looks on our friends faces as they pelted us with roses during our exit. I love the dreamy colors of the garden on a gorgeous Fall evening and the twinkle lights of our rooftop reception. I love the photos of our first slow dance together EVER, because my husband wanted the first time he danced with me to be at our wedding. And I love the way we look at each other in every photo we are together. So in love with this man, so in love with this day. It couldn't have been more perfect.
