“ * The Beginning ” by jgilliam824
Wow..where to begin..
The first time I met my FI I was 18 and hanging out in a bar in Cheyenne WY pretending i was awesome and old enough to be in there. It did not really work because FI and his friends were making jokes that maybe I should be drinking out of a
Sippy cup instead of a beer bottle. Oh well, I must have done something right because a few months later FI confessed that he was madly in love with me....a year later we bought a cat....a few months after that we moved across the country to
Michigan together...a couple years after that we went on a hike in knee deep snow in -10 degree weather with our black lab and poof, Scott kneeled down and next thing I knew I had a ring on my left finger!
On a more serious note....
FI and I dated and always had a fun relationship. We had a lot in common except where we were from, which made things difficult. My family is from Arizona, his from Wisconsin. My parents moved to Wyoming in 2003 and FI was
stationed there at FE Warren Air Force Base. When FI's four years active duty were over, he wanted to move back closer to his family, specifically in Northern Michigan, to go to school. I really thought this was the end of our relationship as my plans were
to go back to Arizona to finish school. I was enrolled at Northern Arizona University and had an apartment set up with my best friend. I helped FI move his stuff to Michigan and was about to get on the plane to fly home. The second he left the
airport I started crying uncontrollably. I was sick to my stomach and instantly felt empty. He called me seconds later saying he could not drive with all the tears in his eyes. This was the moment I knew I did not want to live with out him. This
was the moment I felt he was my soul mate and best friend. I flew home, packed my things and moved to Michigan. My friend was upset with me for bailing out on her and it took a year for her to forgive me. She is now in my wedding : ) FI and I
went to Northern Michigan University and we graduated on the same day in May 2009. We have grown so close, so in love and so happy. It was the best decision of my life to move with him and I would not change it for the world.
Outside the courthouse where we have been sworn in for our marriage license!!

THE FLOWER GIRLS
“ My Bridesmaids <3 ” by JohnsGirl0310
This is the dress my BMs and I picked out. The bms will wear it in blue (horizon) and my moh will wear the pink! They will pick their own silver shoes and will be carrying hot pink roses.
Below are pictures of some of my girls wearing the dress - they love it! The dresses are not in the right colors but I was more concerned with fit.
MOH - Jess (lil' sis) - not quite the color Bridesmaid - Anngela - will wear strap to feel more comforatble
Bridesmaid - Krissy (color is not this dark) Krissy and I - I am wearing the Pink that Jess will be wearing
BM Shoe inspiration: **Photo - Cheyenne Schultz
They are dyeable shoes and can be found here. The BMs will wear the fushia color and my MOH will wear blue
EDIT-- September 30, 2009 - all the girls will be wearing fuschia shoes which have been ordered! yay! and all the girls will wear Horizon dresses (BAMusic123's girls wore horizon - I am glad the color doesn't blow out in
pictures) The shoes came in and they are gorgeous!!! I am so happy with them! Posted Vendor
UPDATE: November 14, 2009 -- HATE the short dresses! They looked terrible on the girls this weekend. I don't know what was so different but no one liked them any more =/ LAME. We talked and we all feel like the short dresses we liked were
too similar to something a guest would wear. They wanted to FEEL like bridesmaids...so we went with long dresses. I am really happy we made that decision!! The girls look beautiful!
Krissy, Lindsay, Jess Anngela
Their Dress came in!!! it's GORGEOUS!!!! Here is my MOH in her dress with the sash that I made (which hasn't been finished)
Maid of Honor -- Jessica (lil' sis)

the best!), hike, camp, attempt to play guitar and read a good book now and then. I am so excited to be marrying my best friend and I can't wait to see what our future together holds!!more »
“ The Venue ” by nikkiness819
My fiancé and I both grew up in Cheyenne Wyoming and are finishing up college in nearby Laramie at the University of Wyoming. All of our friends are
nearby and it is a good home base to wed because our families still live there.
Although I am Lutheran and he is Catholic (arch enemies- I know) religion has never played a role in our relationship. The venue of choice happens to be a neutral, party-tastic ceremony and reception all rolled into one.
Cheyenne Kiwanis Community House, Lyons Park.
Now, this place is a staple of events in Cheyenne- Got married? Party here. BBQ cook-off? Party here. High school dances? Most of them here. In fact- the last time I was in this place was a junior high dance. It may be a catch all, but its
my catch all and the PRICE IS RIGHT.
It is situated within historic Lions Park with botanical gardens and a lake. Picture ops galore.
