Friday June 17th
Rehearsal! Started at 4 at First Christian Church and we used the whole allotted time to make changes and what not! Everyone was there that needed to be and everyone cooperated *horrayyy*
The rehearsal dinner was right after the rehearsal, and was at Perkins! The food was beyond delicious! We had roast beef and bacon, cheddar wrapped cordon bleu. Lets just say the chicken was amazing. The cream corn was good too! It was so pretty in the back room too, Colton's grandma, who we call Mernie, was in charge of it all, and did a wonderful job!
After the rehearsal we went to finish the legion decorations, right in the middle of filling up vases and putting up lights, Amanda tells us her mom just called to let us know we're in a tornado warning, so we wait around for a little bit, and the sirens go off. So there we are, in the middle of decorating for our wedding reception, and a tornado decides to erupt. So we all head down into the basement of the legion, and wait and wait and wait. Finally, we can go up and finish! It was pouring and hailing SO hard though. I can't help but think that its good luck the first tornado of the year in Mac happened the day before our wedding day ;)
Saturday June 18th, D-DAY!
The day started off great! Me and my bridesmaids all got our hair and makeup done at Integrity, Thanks to miss Chelsea Baker (Potter) who did mine, she did a great job! We all looked so purdy~!
We chilled quite a bit through the day.. Everyone kept asking if I was nervous at all, but nope, I was cool as a cucumber! Not one bit nervous. The girls on the other hand, were pacing and shaking their legs with nervousness :) Silly girls!
So, The clock chimed 6:00PM and we all pile out into the lobby. I stayed a bit behind, still not nervous at all. Nor have I cried all day, which I figured I would! Sarah, my Maid Of Honor, gets ready to walk down the aisle with Keith, the best man, and she turns to look back at me, she had a huge smile on her face, and I had tears in my eyes! It was SO surreal I was finally able to marry this person I have loved almost my entire life. My dad walked me down the aisle, and the only other time I got teary eyed was when we were saying our vows. Other then that, I was just so incredibly happy. Our ring bearers, Dylan and Jaiden, did amazing walking down the aisle and standing there, as well as our flower girl, my cousin, Reanna. It was just so perfect. No big catastrophe's, no fights or arguements. It was P.E.R.F.E.C.T!
The reception was beyond amazing, we had lots of good food, and dances. Something I will always remember and cherish! I still cant believe I'm a married woman, yet married to the man of my dreams. Wishes, prayers, hopes and shooting stars, whatever it is you may wish for, it may come true some day. Just keep trying..It took awhile for me, but everything is exactly how it should be. And we couldn't be happier!
Soooo after allll that.. Here are some pictures! In order :)
