Here Comes the Bride

Our wedding ceremony was held the evening of September 22, 2007 in Greenwood, IN. We got married outside on a veranda at a country club. We had absolutely perfect weather and everything was so gorgeous.

My BFF Jill's mama played the flute during the ceremony and did such a fantastic job. It was so special to me to have her there when I walked down the aisle.





My sister and I handmade our programs to match my invitations. This was one of those last minute jobs we saved so by the end I could care less whether the pink paper was centered on the black anymore. I think wine may've had something to do with it as well.





My brother walked my mama down the aisle.





Our beautiful mothers lighting the candles.





Our studly Pastor! You have no idea how many "compliments" I got on this guy! Sorry girls, he's married. But he sure was good lookin'!





After my bridesmaids walked down the aisle, our flower girl followed with her brother handing out roses.





And now the big moment!





Daddy and I arrived on a horse and carriage! I remember when we booked this place I thought it was totally cheesy...but it couldn't have been more perfect. No one really knew it was coming so when the horse was walking up there were a lot of people who were getting really mad at first because it was so loud. But then they realized it was me and all started cheering! It was really a super neat experience. And if anyone is interested, our horse's name was Gypsy.





Seriously could not love this man more.



Getting married!



We had two different readings during our ceremony. The first was done by Jill's brother Eric.





Our second reading was done by my second BFF AJ. Yes, I have two...get over it. Jill, AJ, and I were inseparable for years. They are the only people from high school I even talk to and they are my friends for life. AJ was so nervous he was going to mess up that he stayed over with us the night before and practiced over and over. There was some phrase in the reading about making love and he threatened to look over at me and wink during the ceremony! He didn't do it, but as you can see, this is all my brother could think about during the reading as he is cracking up in the background of this picture. One of my favorite moments...




Rings please!



United!



You may kiss the bride!



Married!




Matt and I got to take the horse and carriage off for a little alone time before the reception. Perfect time for a few pictures with my sweet!





And now....it's time to party!
