GIRLS GETTING READY/PRE-CEREMONY
My bridesmaids are my bestfriends, hence why I only had two :) We stayed in a hotel the night before, got up and ate McDonalds and then goofed off all day while getting ready. My DH's friend did my hair and makeup, she was such a great sport since she was almost 7 months preggo! She only charged me $100 for 5 girls hair and my makeup.
I had my hair and makeup done, I was about to get the dress on and then I realized: "OH $%^&! I forgot to shave my arm pits last night!" So I had my brother come in and go ask my husband for a razor so my brother "could shave his face" hahaha My photog just walked in at the right minute to capture that kodak moment
GUYS GETTING READY/PRE-CEREMONY
It went by SO fast! I was in a daze the whole time and I was sooo nervous! I heard the part of the song that I was supposed to walk out to and thought 'oh lord, this is it- lets go' when I started walking down the aisle I felt like the whole world was frozen, all I could see was my soon-to-be husband and my peripheral vision was non-existant.
When we were saying our vows my nose kept running, so I was sniffling but it's okay because people probably thought I was just crying lol It probably lasted about 15 minutes but it felt like 30 seconds. I get told I talk to fast so my brain was saying "pase yourself casey, dont talk to fast"
BRIDE & GROOM ♥
we didnt get very many shots, so we decided to do a TTD shoot for our 1 year anniversary

My husband and I had such an AMAZING time! It was so relaxing and some of the most beautiful scenery I have EVER seen! The prices are very resonable, and we spent our last day in Eureka Springs (only an hour away) shopping and taking a zillion pictures. We had a blast and I would definately recommend this cabin to anyone.

I'm a country girl, DH is a rocker boy- I wanted this song because I knew he would LOVE it. Totally NOT traditional.
--The song will start; DH/officiant/GM walked out, BM's and flowergirl walked out, there is a little pause and then right at the 2:00 mark I walk out- talk about INTENSE
Pastor: "Who supports this couple in their marriage?"
Dad: "Her mother and I"
Friends, we have been invited here today to share with Jeff and Casey a very important moment in their lives. In the years they have been together, their love and understanding of each other has grown and matured, and now they have decided to live their lives together as husband and wife.
Exchange of VowsI, (name), take you, (name), to be my (husband/wife), my constant friend, my faithful partner and my love from this day forward. In the presence of God, our family and friends, I offer you my solemn vow to be your faithful partner in sickness and in health, in good times and in bad, and in joy as well as in sorrow. I promise to love you unconditionally, to support you in your goals, to honor and respect you, to laugh with you and cry with you, and to cherish you for as long as we both shall live.
Presentation of The Rings
I give you this ring as a symbol of my love for you. Let it be a reminder that I am always by your side and that I will always be a faithful partner to you.
Hand CeremonyIn the hand ceremony, the bride takes the groom's hands in hers, palms up. The officiant invites her to view his hands as a gift, and says: "These are the hands that will work along side yours, as together you build your future, as together you laugh and cry, and together you share your innermost secrets and dreams."
The groom then takes the bride's hands, palm side up. The officiant says, "They are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you through the years, for a lifetime of happiness, as she promises her love and commitment to you all the days of her life."The Closing Prayer
May the love of God be above you to overshadow you, beneath you to uphold you, before you to guide you, behind you to protect you, close beside you and within you to make you able for all things, and to reward your faithfulness with the joy and peace which the world cannot give -- neither can it take away. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, to whom be glory now and evermore. Amen.The Kiss
Minister: Jeff, you may now kiss your Bride.
Officiant: It is now my privilege to introduce to you for the first time, Mr. and Mrs. Jeffrey Moore.The Recessional: Love Remains The Same- Gavin Rossdale

My DH's nickname is "Smoore" more people know him by that name than his real name. I saw a s'more table but decided it was too messy and expensive so I opted on doing DIY s'more favors. It was a huge hit and probably my favorite thing from our wedding since it's so personal.
I wanted lavish floor length black linens and gorgeous flower centerpieces but in reality it definately was not in our budget. So instead I bought 20 (for $85) black lap length linens from http://www.mypapershop.com/220836.html, 20 red satin chair sashes (@ $1.19 each) that I used as table runners from http://www.efavormart.com and 144 red votive candles from ebay ($80)
Total cost per table: ~$10
We are using Patsys Bake Shop (www.patsysbakeshop.com) in West, TX for our cakes.
DH loves the Red Sox. We decided to go with the Boston 'B'
DIY Cake Serving Set; I bought these at walmart but didn't really like the ribbons (since I could tie my own to save my life!) I didnt want to spend MORE money to buy some more so I let my creative juices flow
My bridesmaids will wear Style 81123 from Davids Bridal. My MOH will have an apple red sash to match the Best Man's apple red tie.
The bridesmaids bouquets will be 6 red roses, and their initial on the front.
I got these exact ones from Michael's (pic from heartsetfreebylove)
