Show Us Your Life...

This week is Kelly is hosting "Show Us Your Life" Wedding Week! I am so excited about this week because I LOVE weddings. I love going to weddings, reading about weddings, looking at wedding pictures...everything about them! I hope you enjoy a little sneak peak into mine!

We had a WONDERFUL day! The weather was gorgeous, and everything turned out perfectly! We had our Wedding at my Family's farm - what a beautiful place! I have spent a large majority of my life there and it meant so much to me to be able to get married there! Michael and I wanted an outside wedding. We wanted things to look nice, but also be very casual. I didn't want anyone not to come because they didn't have anything to wear. You know how us women are ;)

The girls wore the cutest brown knee length dresses with a turquoise sash...with NO SHOES might I add! The guys wore khakis and flip flops with a turquoise button up shirt. Our Flower Girls wore the sweetest little white dressed, and the Ring Bearers wore khakis and turquoise Polo's. It turned out just like I dreamed it would!

I think this is a really neat one! My cousins were our Ushers, and every time I see this picture it makes me laugh. I think it is so crazy how high they jumped!

I used white roses for the Bridesmaids bouquets and red roses for mine. The flower girls dropped red rose petals as well!

Here is one of my favorite shots of our rings. Michael picked out a black band...that I love! I wasn't too sure about it at first, but once he put it on, I fell in love with it. Or maybe it was just him ;) My wedding set is exactly what I have always wanted. I told him long before we got engaged what I liked, and he remembered all the details perfectly! I still love it as much today as I did the day he asked me to marry him!

Instead of the traditional Unity Candle, we decided on Unity Sand. I still have the hurricane full of sand, and it is still beautiful to me!

I made pages for our scrapbook for our guests to sign instead of having a guest book. Now I can look at them anytime instead of having to dig out a book that I never look at!

My cousin made both our cakes for us! She did an awesome job on both of them, and they were DELICIOUS!! Before the ceremony mine started melting, so we were afraid it would fall. It didn't!

Michael's cake was a chocolate cake topped with one of my personal favorites...chocolate covered strawberries! YUMMY!!!

I hope you have enjoyed our "Big Day"! Come back again next week for Wedding Receptions and Honeymoons!

I love the picture of your cake! Even though it was melting, it looked awesome! I would not have known that it was melting if you didn't tell us. It looked like a lovely day! :)
