October 17th, 2009

was the day I married the man of my dreams.  I decided to do a post about my wedding mostly because I LOVE reading and seeing pictures of other peoples' weddings and I'm sure others do too.  My honey's parents financed the wedding for us on a tight budget ($1200) and we are extrememly grateful for everything they gave and did for us.  We had the ceremony and reception at a beautiful park right next to the river.  Our colors were black and white with fall oranges and reds as accents.  It was a beautiful day, albeit a bit windy, and though not many of my family members were able to come, we were surrounded by people who love us.
The Bridesmaids: (From left to right) Jenni (his cousin),

The Groomsmen: (From left to right) Nate (his cousin),
Garrison (Best Man and his brother), Adam (best friend), and Clay (best friend)

I love how everyone in the background is staring down the food!  haha!

First Dance: L-O-V-E by Nat King Cole

Of course we had to have the traditional bird seed fight
(Wait, doesn't everyone have one at their wedding??)

Clay was grromsman and D.J.

And we ended the night by dancing like crazy people!

Our wedding was perfect for us.  It was untraditional, heartfelt and fun.  I wouldn't change a thing.  We cried, laughed, danced, hugged, kissed and threw birdseed at each other.  It was the start of something wonderful.
