We won’t have internet for the rest of the month. So posting may be spotty. That is fine since it gives me the opportunity to post wedding porn!
So the lowdown on the wedding…It was fantastic!
We had a fairly small wedding on the lakeside. The actually ceremony was under a tent on the shore and the reception was nearby at the boathouse on the same property. We had a small wedding party, just the matron of honor, the best man and a flower girl. We wrote the ceremony, which included a ring warming, and the whole thing lasted about seven or eight minutes.
My friends were amazing. I had one friend drive up from Kentucky the Monday before the wedding (which was on a Saturday.) My friend spent the week doing laundry and yard work and anything else that we asked, to help prep for the wedding. My other friends all helped out and decorated the boathouse for the wedding.
My matron of honor was amazing. Not only did she arrange the shower and help with invitations and make my jewelry for the wedding, but she also hosted another one of my friends from out of town. Her husband actually drove two hours to the airport to pick my friend up. My friends are wonderful and I am so lucky.
There was one small hitch. My Matron of Honor got a flat tire on the way to the wedding. She calls, says she already has the tire iron out and shouldn’t be more than 15 minutes late, just then in the background I hear “That’s a might pretty dress…” Some boys stopped and helped her and she was only 10 minutes late. It worked out fine. While we were waiting for her I shoved my future sister-in-law out of the limo to start the ring warming so the guests would get too antsy. Enough with the talking though….Wedding Porn.

More photos coming later, including tales from the Morning After Brunch. That’s right, my mom threw an after wedding brunch for 75 people and cooked it all herself. And it was tasty!
