Happily Ever After...

Three years ago today, my Daddy walked me down the aisle and gave me away to the man who was my future. In a beautiful white dress in front of a church full of family and friends we loved we said "I Do". We promised to cherish one another, to stick it out through thick and thin. So far we've done pretty well. We have a happy home, a good marriage and together we made the most beautiful baby girl.
Happy anniversary Chris. You make me happy every single day. We've had a pretty magical three years. Here's to 100 more.  I love you.
Our Wedding Day
I was so lucky to have the wedding of my dreams. I always wanted to be a June bride, to be married in The Season. I always wanted a very very traditional church ceremony (think old school King James vows traditional) and a huge party after. It was every thing I dreamed of and more. The ceremony was perfect. The man who performed the ceremony also Baptized and Confirmed me, which made it extra special. The reception was so much fun. We had amazing food, plenty of drinks, delicious cake and a blast dancing to The Venus Mission, which is an 80's cover band. We spent our wedding night in downtown Memphis and our Honeymoon in Playa del Carmen, Mexico at The Royal.

Fun Facts About My Wedding
*because I know you are just dying to know, right?*

1) The day before our wedding devastating tornadoes swept through the Memphis area. I drove through warning and high winds to make it to my rehearsal. Also, the food for our rehearsal dinner was sucked up and they had to remake it. My MOH is from Vegas and was completely terrified of the tornado sirens.

2) We ran into my ex-boyfriend on the way from the trolley to our hotel. Awkward.

3) My wedding planner had no power due to tornadoes and made all of my flowers in the dark. Due to this she missed putting a ribbon on MY BOUQUET. I called her and flipped out on her because of it. Also, the boutonnieres were not what I wanted. I flipped out about that too. My one single Bridezilla moment.

4) Not only was Chris's groom's cake a replica of Neyland Stadium, but the cake itself was orange also. GBO or go home!

5) The pattern on the Bride's Cake was a replica of the pattern of the beading on my dress.

6) Chris and I danced to "Lucky" by Jason Mraz ft. Colbie Callait. My dad and I danced to "Father and Daughter" by Paul Simon. I have no clue what Chris and his mom danced to. I do know he left the CD at the church and they had to play it off a YouTube video on his iPhone.
