was the day jacob and i said "i do".
we started dating june 2005 and got married feb. 22, 2008.
one of the best days of our lives, we get so emotional looking back bc everyone spoiled us during this most precious time.
our families and friends made sure this was a magical day.
here are some fun moments on our wedding day..
if you click on photo they will enlarge.
we wore toms
to our wedding.
he wiped my tears and some of my make up off (on purpose)
we wanted to see eachother before the ceremony. so we did.
we took all our photos before the actual wedding.
i had 10 bridesmaids. each and everyone are dear to me and have made a huge impact on my life.
jacob had 9 groomsmen. we love them all and 2 are responsible for us getting married. 1 groomsman didn't show up. true story.
played before and during the ceremony.
taylor( my cousin/bff) and sara
a special song taylor and i wrote taken from my vows.
they just recorded it so that i could give it to jacob today.
my cousin might get mad bc he isn't finished with the song yet.
my beautiful sister kelly was my maid of honor
and jacobs best friend travis nunn was the best man.
i walked down while finnegan
played "is this love" by bob marley.
this is also why we were cracking up. 2 of our friends married us.
our bridal party gathered around to pray and bless our marriage.
while jacob's dad sang THIS SONG
by dave barnes.
when they said i now pronounce you husband and wife
our first dance as husband and wife. our first dance song was called "let us" that our lovely friend sara van buskirk
wrote for us. you should check her out! her new cd is now finished!
my dad and i danced to "take on me" by aha.
it's been our song since i was little girl.
and dave did it as a wedding present to us. i couldn't believe that!
Dave is the best! everyone danced all night! no slow songs! yay!!!
my mom made me get a "real wedding cake" (see in the back). im glad she did bc it was amazing! 3 different flavors. for the grooms cake we wanted ding dongs. i saw this in a ready made magazine and fell in love. jacobs mom made it happen.
for our guest book, my cousin gina took polaroids of our guests and stuck them in a plain black scrap book.
we also had fabric squares that the guests wrote messages on ( for a quilt)
the guys took jacob away from the reception and said they wanted to pray with him...LIES!!! they took off his pants and attacked him with permanent markers. obscene things. it was hillarious bc those obscene drawings ended up on the hotel sheets. looked like stamps all over the white sheets.
i didn't want to leave yet bc i was having so much fun dancing!
we even had that TV MOMENT where all the guys were on one side and the girls were on the other...then two would dance down in the middle. it was our FOOTLOOSE
and another reason i didn't want to leave was bc i was nervous.
super personal but ill share.
when jacob and i started dating we agreed that we wouldn't have sex with one another until we were married.
and we kept that promise. super big deal. we were very proud of ourselves.
if you want to see more photos of our wedding day
the next day our friends threw us a pool party (sat)
i did a lot of DIY for my wedding, my dad didnt want me to bc he wanted it perfect but i talked him into letting me so that it was more us and just personalized.
so feel free to ask me anything!
