Wedding Photos at last!

7:00 AM

 It took us a while to get our photos and then it's taken me even longer to make up this post.

Scott asked me to marry him in June, on my birthday. We talked about when we wanted to get married. My sister Rose was headed out for a two-month mission trip. We knew that we would need to either have our wedding before or after her trip, as neither of us could imagine getting married without her there. After all, she was going to be my maid-of-honor.

September quickly became the month of choice, along with Sunday as a good day of the week, as Scott works for a Chick-fil-A and we wanted his co-workers to easily be able to make it.

I hadn't spent a lot of time picturing what my future wedding would look like, but I just loved how all the details came together. We did a Texas/country theme. We wanted to keep everything simple and not spend a fortune on the wedding. 

God was really gracious. Our first choices for venue fell through. We didn't want to book a traditional wedding venue, as they are so expensive. We found a community center that not only was a great location but a great price.

So, when we went to exchange rings, a funny thing happened. Even though we had reminded each other to give the rings to our maid-of-honor (my sister, Rose) and the best man (his older brother Ian) Ian hadn't been given the ring. The bridesmaids and groomsmen all scrambled to locate the ring. It finally took Scott leaving me to locate the ring. He handed it to Ian and this is the photo that captured us finally getting my ring.

Our rings. Didn't Scott pick out a great engagement ring for me? My wedding ring fits right with it.

Our first act as a married couple was to share the Lord's supper.

Our very first kiss. 


Photo time! Christina captured some great ones.

I always hated the bouquet toss at weddings. So, with the help of my sister and maid-of-honor, Rose, we made flowers for each single lady to take home.

Isn't it pretty?

Time to go!

My siblings did a great job decorating the car

And we were off!


So, what would you like to know about Scott and me? I'm planning on doing a Q&A to answer a lot of questions.
