MOH zipping me up. My dress had covered buttons going all the way down the back, but my MOH was so happy that there was a hidden zipper and she didn't have to actually button everything!
My bridesmaids took pics while the pro was, and this is a thoughtful, serious shot before leaving for Church.
The boys are almost ready! Not sure why Jesse is frowning tho haha!
My MOH and I in the limo. I was a nervous wreck at this point! I was excited to marry Jeff, but nervous at being the center of attention!
At this point, I was saying "Get me out of the limo and into Church! I'm ready to get started!"
Once we were at Church, I hid in the offices with my girls. This is one of my brothers being my "flower girl" and getting the aisle ready for me! He'd probably kill me if he knew I posted this pic haha!
Flowers and unity candle.
My MOH walking down the aisle. I was SUPER nervous at this point because I knew I was next!
Pastor Scott, my FIL, Jeff, Bret the Best Man, Jason, My brother Warren, my brother Kurt, Evan, Dan, Jesse.
My girls! Dara, Lauren, Jess, Juliet, Amy, Amy (SIL), Shannon my MOH.
This is me crying walking down the aisle! I was so nervous, overwhelmed, and happy! My mom was trying to calm me down and telling me not to cry. My response was, "Don't tell me not to cry because it's not going to work!" I got it under control for the rest of the ceremony, but barely.
Jeff's first reaction to me. My bridesmaid Amy's husband got this shot and I love it!
Both Pastors did a message about us. I almost cried during Jeff's dad's. It was so sweet!
Vow time. I cried when we rehearsed these, but I was OK for the real thing. It was so incredibly special to hear those words from Jeff and to say them to him. Definitely one of the best parts of the day!
Prayer before the rings.
Jeff putting my ring on me. Another emotional time in the ceremony for me.
We did a unity candle lighting, but no one got a good shot of it because of where it was in the Church, so I have to wait for the pro pics! I also don't have a good one of us kissing after being pronounced husband and wife! I will post them when the pro pics are in!
We're married and so happy!
Receiving line, which I did not plan on doing, but the Church wedding coordinator lined us up, so we did it. It was really nice to talk to everyone! Our ceremony wasn't as long as we expected, so this took up some time!
Leaving Church to get into the limo to go to the reception.
Everyone threw pink rose petals at us! It was so pretty!
Next up, some posed shots at the reception site and the reception itself!
