(This picture is super special, my grandmother had been in poor health and she has always said that she wanted to live to see my wedding. She did, then a week later she passed away. So to get these final images were amazing!)

Our ceremony was absolutely amazing! Our officiant was one of our really good friends (in the state of Colorado anyone can officiate without getting ordained or a certificate or anything special like that.) He was also deployed last year with DH so that was pretty special. we sat down and told him what elements we wanted to incorporate in the ceremony and he made it all work. I will type it up and post it a bit later for anyone who is looking to write their own ceremony.

I am so glad that we did the first look, it made my nerves settle way down. It was definitley a lot less emotional than I thought it would be, I thought I was going to do the ugly cry and have to fix my make-up. But surprisingly we were both just excited to get hitched! I also think that Tim coming home from Afghanistan was waaaaay more emotional for us than our first look so we were like old pros ;) For the pics of everyone before the wedding we hung out right around the hotel so no one had to drive around and waste time that way. The Curtis has an awesome bar called "The Corner Office" and the Denver Center for Performing arts is right across the street so we were pretty lucky.

I love my brother and we have a goofy/ joking relationship ALL of the time so when we were trying to take formal pictures or photog said we looked like we were at a funeral and to just act natural... This is what she got ;)

So the morning of the wedding was CHAOS (but in a good way)... This was my fault because I am not a huge minute by minute planner ha ha... All of my girls came to the hotel room we sat around, drank cocktails, laughed, and I got most of my pre wedding jitters out of the way. My mom and MIL were so amazing! They helped get everything together and kept me on time. The boys I think did more drinking than getting ready ;) They had gone out the night before and were still a little hung over. So a little hair of the dog and they were good to go!

I love this idea! Our escort cards are going to be balloons, color coded to suit each guests selected meal. We will have a calligrapher writing each name and table name.



Source This is my lovely garter set, purchased from etsy (secretly addicted to that site.) Yes I know it is the Oakland Raiders, that is FI's fave football team so I figured I would support him :)


ThE DeTaiLs photo 1What does a t-shirt launcher have to do with a wedding you ask? I wondered the same thing... My lovely mom and FI worked up this little scheme that he would wrap the garter around a t-shirt and launch it into the crowd... Fingers crossed he doesn't break anything...

 ThE DeTaiLs photo 2<-- This is the t-shirt we are going to use.
