I haven’t looked at pictures from our wedding in quite awhile. I’ve been looking them over and reminiscing all morning long and it just reminded me of how truly wonderful that day was. Our wedding day was the best day of my life. It was a hot day but it was June 25th..what else could we expect? Looking at the pictures reminds me too of how much has happened in the last 8 years…we built a house, had three beautiful girls, moved the orchard…lost Jared’s grandpa and my grandma… It’s crazy to think how things can change in just 8 years. One thing that hasn’t changed is the bond Jared and I have…it’s still as strong as ever. It’s hard for me to believe that after all this time…8 years married, 11 years together…I still want to spend as much time as possible with one man. He is an incredible husband that can handle me…which trust me…is quite a feat. Watching him with our three girls makes my heart melt…he’s such an amazing father.
Here are just a few of my favorite photo’s from that day (in no particular order)…there are just so many to choose from!
Yes – instead of a limo we had horses pulling a wagon! It was fabulous!Thousands of bubbles awaited us at my in-law’s farm between the ceremony and the reception. We had to have a really early ceremony and most of the guests were from out of town so we served beer and appetizers at my in-laws farm before heading to the reception. It was definitely a hit.My beautiful sister-in-law, Karma.First dance. We only had professional photographer’s for the wedding and a bit longer after that. All our reception pictures were taken by friends with digitals or using the disposable ones we put out on the table.My gorgeous bridesmaids!I just LOVED my cascading bouquet! It was so beautiful – it did weigh a TON though!Jared’s groomsmen and our ushers.Both of my Grandma Grace’s.I love this picture of me hugging my godfather – Uncle Tom.Jared was miraculously totally relaxed before the ceremony.My mom and brother.Jared and his parents!My dad walked me down the aisle. Natalie, my maid of honor.I just love this picture – I truly think we were caught off guard for it too.Grandpa was so proud of this tractor! He cleaned it up all nice for us for pictures.
Two of my crazy bridesmaids.Grandpa was really excited to ride with us on the wagon ride from my in-law’s to the reception…he was so cute! When we stopped at a bar he made sure to help all the ladies down the steps.The three Frank’s all together. Love this picture of ‘Frank’ Jared and his dad and grandpa.
It was truly… a perfect day.
