My anniversary. It rains every year on my anniversary. It rained on my wedding day, but not for long and not during the ceremony. We had an outdoor wedding at a state park about an hour from here. One of our best friends got ordained so that he could marry us. People came from Florida and Pennsylvania and Oak Ridge, TN and it was just awesome. Couldn't have asked for a better day, except for the heat and humidity. Didn't hurt the food any though. The main wedding cake was a red velvet cake with cream cheese icing. It held up well, although there was little left. I sweated, but you can't tell in the pictures and that's what counts.
My father speed-walked me down the aisle to the strains of "Jessica" by the Allman Brothers being played on acoustic guitar. We wrote our own vows and the wedding itself was pretty short. Having everyone with us was wonderful. We got married in a clearing in a grove across from two waterfalls. You could hear the rush of the water the entire time.
I made it through the whole ceremony without crying and almost lost it walking back down the aisle with my husband. It was that sweet!
4 years ago today.:)
Here I am stepping through the hedge. In August of 2004, it did nothing but rain in Tennessee everyday so it was muddy. I was trying to be careful not to slip.:)
I love the looks on my husband's face in our wedding pictures.:)
That's my sister in the pink and our friend Mike in the green with yellow Croc's.:)
This picture really highlights the fact that I was 7 months pregnant, but I like it anyway. He's putting the ring on my finger.
I had to crop someone's hand out of this one. It's one of my favorites.
Again, the look on my husband's face kills me.:) I'm trying not to cry in this one.:)
