Stealing the Wedding Spotlight

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

So I don’t know about you, but I for one LOVE weddings! I love hearing about other people’s weddings, going to weddings, and especially looking at wedding pictures! Every Wednesday, my screen is filled with tons of gorgeous wedding pictures from fellow newlywed bloggers. I love seeing the little details, the unique moments, and the love that is exuded from each and every photo. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little sad that my wedding had already happened, that it happened before pinterest was around, and that I wasn’t blogging then so I wasn’t able to share all my little details! Get ready for lots of pictures! #sorryimnotsorry

So in honor of Wedding Wednesday, I am going to go back about three and a half years and share some details from my special day.

Dan and I got married on July 15, 2010 at a gorgeous winery at about 6:30 on a beautiful Thursday evening. We choose this day because it was also my grandparents wedding anniversary. While my grandpa couldn’t be there with us, I was so honored to be the only grandchild my grandmother was able to see get married, and to be able to share that special day with her meant everything to me.

We had a fairly small wedding, with about 120 guests. We decided to do a first look before the ceremony to calm our nerves and be able to take more pictures together. I was surprised at how relaxed and just at ease I was that day. All that mattered to me was that almost all the people in our lives who we truly wanted there were there and that I was marrying my best friend.

                         I Love this image of his reaction to seeing each other for the first time!! 

It was a simple ceremony and a simple reception. We served hors’ devours and had a candy table, wedding cake, and a s’mores station. There was dancing, laughter, and love all around us. It was everything we wanted and more.

Thanks for humoring me and allowing me to share memories from my special day! Did you not get to share your wedding memories cause you weren’t a blogger then, well share them now! I for one, would love to see your special day! Plus, I liked this week so much that I think I am going to share some more fun images from our special day next week! Its always fun reliving such an amazing day and share your ideas and thoughts with other future brides!

  6. I just found your blog today from a link on MalSmiles... Love your blog! I'm married to a medic, so I can identify with your lifestyle :)
    I also got married at a winery (and LOVE wine)... our wedding was unique because we served wedding pies instead of cake, because my hubby doesn't like cake. Six years later, and that's the thing our friends and family always remember from our special day.

  7. I found you through Mal Smiles. Your wedding looks lovely! Thanks for sharing.
