I'm wearing Versace Bright Crystal on my big day! Love the scent!
When I first laid eyes on you at the Gries front desk six years ago, I knew you were something special. I just had absolutely no idea what God had in store for us. Fast forward a few years, to that cold day in February 2009. We were standing in the atrium at Barnes, and I just couldn't deal with talking to anyone about what was going on with my mom, so you talked to my family. But it was when you were talking to your dad. I don't think that you knew I was watching or that I could hear you, but you got all choked up. That's when I knew, without a doubt, that you would be my husband.
I have waited my entire life for you. I’ve dreamed about having someone as wonderful as you love me the way that you do. You have been my best friend, my mentor, my confidant, and sometimes, my greatest challenge. But most importantly, you are the love of my life and you make me happier than I could ever imagine and more loved than I ever thought possible.
With you, I’m completely alive. You make me laugh, you let me cry, you pick me up when I fall apart, you provide a safe place for me, and you teach me how to love. You have inspired me to be a better person. I am truly blessed to call you my husband.
I promise to always appreciate how lucky I am, and I promise to always strive to make you feel as special as you make me feel. I promise to always work at our love and make our marriage my number one priority. I promise to be your partner in all things. I promise to encourage and support your hopes and dreams, as they are now my hopes and dreams. I promise to cherish you, respect you, be faithful to you, and always be truthful with you. I promise to be kind, patient, and forgiving. When we are faced with challenge, I promise to stand by you and uplift you, so that we can accomplish more than we could alone. I promise to celebrate the joys of life with you. Above all else, I promise to love you for all the days of my life.
Since we're doing a quilt guestbook, I didn't want to miss out on hearing our guests' advice!! Sarah created these 10 advice cards for me, and then I put them in these envelopes for our guests to fill out. Two envelopes will be placed on each table for the guests to fill out. I also got these awesome custom pens from vistaprint for the guests to use!
Update: the advice we got was HILARIOUS. Definitely happy we did this! :)
My wedding wouldn't be what it is without PW girls, past and present.
I wanted to put this page together so you could all see who inspired me during
this amazing, but stressful, process we call wedding planning. :)

While these are a nice touch for an outdoor wedding, I wouldn't do them again. They're a huge pain in the butt, as over half of them didn't line up properly. I love them, but they're just far too difficult to DIY. Labels designed by Sarah Goff.
