Wedding Wednesday

Awww I loved my wedding. I loved every second (almost cough) of it. I won't go in to the 3 or 4 things that upset me leading up to that day, it's not worth it, but suffice it to say, I loved my wedding. I'd do it again in a heartbeat! Dave and I will renew our vows the wedding pavillion at the Grand Floridian at WDW, by the way. :)

So my wedding...March 24, 2007. I had originally imagined getting married in the fall of 2007, but Dave didn't want to wait. We were engaged in July and he couldn't imagine waiting a year and a handful of months. :) We chose March because it worked best for both of our schedules and there wasn't a big chance of a huge snowstorm in the forest at the end of March. A chance, but not a huge chance. (haha!)

We were married in what has become our home church, the Methodist church, by Pastor David. Pastor David is an amazing man. He is the best kind of pastor, in my opinion. He is nuturing, kind, caring and Christlike, but he doesn't fall in to trying to please the people of the church. He's a great man and I really love his family too! (Except Andrew...He calls me old! HAHA! :)) Pastor David made the whole process easy for us and relaxed. Our wedding hostess through the church was a dance parent/adult tap student who Dave and I both love dearly. All in all, our church made it a great day for us!

Our colors were dark purple and dark gold, with all things ivory. Right after we were engaged, we were sitting in my aunt's (now our) living room. Dave loves the border in this room like none other. (It is very nice.) It's purple and gold grapes so bam there you go! They worked really well for a late winter wedding and were super easy to cooridnate. We used grapes and grapevine everywhere and ivy too. The flowers were done by Dave's grandparents' greenhouse and were all shades of purple, orange, bright pink, etc wildflowers. They were beautiful!!

This was our wedding party! My sister was my maid of honor, in gold. Love these people, for sure. :)

Oh I loved my wedding! Some of my dancers performed at my ceremony and it was fantastic. I was so happy that day and so was Dave. Good things, all around. :)
