So I already posted this on the main forum, but I'm just going to copy and paste it here. Too much trouble to re-type all this. :)

 

Hello ladies! I'm back and a happy Mrs. now! I don't have very many photos to share, as it'll be a few weeks until we get pro shots  back, but here are some I've stolen from facebook. Believe me, these do not do the whole thing justice. It was amazing!

The altar complete with giant brontosaurus in the back.

Close up of mini-dinos for the altar:

My brother (the officiant) and my husband to be waiting patiently for me.

Flower girl and ringbearer (note the dinosaur she's carrying. she didn't want no stinkin flowers!)

Matron of Honor and Best Man : (and for those of you wondering, she finally got her dress the day of rehearsal.)

Entrance: My dad rode me down a huge hill on his motorcycle for this.

Waiting patiently. The wind made my skirt blow up a little. No worries, I had on shorts! :

We had Rock Band set up for the reception, but I didn't see any photos. I also didn't find any of the cake or centerpieces. Which were both awesome and over the top with dinosaur greatness.

But I did find one lonely photo of the cookies I made as favors. A triceratops with a monocle and bowtie, and a brontosaurus with a mustache and bowtie :

That's all I have for now, but rest assured I will update with pro pics as soon as I get them in. It was a great day and I couldn't have asked for better Texas weather than that! (85 and breezy)

Remember when I said we were having a dinosaur theme? Well, it's finally coming together. My dad and I are about half way through building a giant Apatosaurus. 

 

Here it is in all it's half-finished glory standing a whooping 9.5 ft tall and 11.5 ft in length.

I know the whole thing is a little frivilous, but I still wanted to share!

 

I apologize in advance for the massive amount of photos I'm about to subject you to. But I was so thrilled with these I want to post them any and everywhere. My sister in law is in the beginning phases of her photography business so she offered to take all our photos and I honestly could not be happier with them.  Enjoy!
