I'm Married! 8-3-13

August 17, 2013

It's 3 weeks ago today and already it seems like a lifetime ago. Chet and I tied the knot 8-3-13 and had the most beautiful ceremony.. Everything went above and beyond my expectations. We haven't gotten our professional photos or video back, but we have over 2,000 photos take by family members, THANKS EVERYONE! Thats amazing! After the wedding weekend we spent a week in Costa Rica, doing more hiking than relaxing... we loved visiting and exploring the country! I'm already planning another visit back... someday. Any who, Here's a few fun photos from the day, as seen from the eyes of our family...
Above: something old- my grandparents bible to carry the rings down instead of a pillow. Something new: my earrings and hair piece (made by my bridesmaid, Kelsey. It was the halter top originally on my wedding dress). Something borrowed- my moms handkerchief and something blue - my shoes. Below: our ceremony programs booklet.
Above: two of my best girlfriends that were rocks of support during the wedding process and with me all day of the wedding. Below: my new cousins and photographers extraordinaire.
Our flower girls and nieces, who suddenly became extemely shy and actually didn't make it down the aisle :)
Above: we had a chance to turn around and look at all the family and friends who travelled several hours to be there for us on our wedding day. Below: a girls group hug after we're announced husband and wife.
My personal attendant and one of me and my sisters best friends was my savior. She re-MADE the bustle of my dress at the last minute. We had a few dress hiccups that week.
The last one is a sneak peek on some of our fun photos between the ceremony and reception. We had such a blast the entire day! I can't wait to share more stories and photos with you!
