That's right!  We found out on Oct 5, 2011 that we're adding a little baby to our family.  It will be our first human baby (we have 3 fur babies already).  We couldn't be more thrilled!

In January we found out our little baby is a girl!!!  We've already decided on a name...Molly Jane.  I love her so much already!

  Our cake was made me Rosebeary's in Guthrie.  I loved the design and Janet was such a pleasure to work with.  The flavors were white chocolate, raspberry cream, carrot cake (with cream cheese icing in the cake), all with a buttercream icing.  The groom's cake was s'mores flavor and was exactly what Steve always wanted.  :)

                                                         Some reception details...

   I made this using an antique window I had at home.  It has pictures of our parents and grandparents.  Now                                                          it's hanging in my living room.

  We donated money to the Susan G Komen Foundation in honor of my mom, a breast cancer survivor, as well as numerous other family members on both sides of our families.  To inform our guests of this we made pink ribbon sugar cookies and attached little notes explaining our donation.

                                    We incorporated mason jars throughout our entire reception.

   Steve sang to me at our reception.  He sang the song from The Wedding Singer, but added his own verses.

 After our first dance we did our first Rockband song as Husband and Wife.  We battled to "Livin' on a Prayer"  and I won.  :)  To be fair, I was playing bass so my part was a LITTLE easier.

Taken by the fabulous Tammy Odell.

Getting Ready/Accessories/Pre-Ceremony

                             Our venue was the Dominion House in Guthrie, OK.  It was so beautiful.

    

                                                    My dress was a Maggie Sottero Milana

     

                            

         Some of my jewelry, all purchased from Etsy.  Thanks, Beatie, for recommending Mikan Designs                                                                for this gorgeous bracelet.

                  

                                         

                                                     My shoes were my something blue

    

                                        

                        Our FG basket was an antique and our RB pillow was vintage Air Force fabric. 

                                        

                                                  My hair flower was also from etsy.  :)

                                        

                                               My mom was so good at tying my corset!

   

                                                 

Steve gave me this necklace as a wedding day gift.  It is the original diamond that was in the engagement ring of his grandmother's that he gave me when he proposed.  He put a bigger diamond in mine, but I got to wear  the original diamond around my neck. I LOVE this necklace.

                                      

     I love that my photographer captured me on my iphone.  lol  I was probably checking the weather.  :)

                                      

    

    

    

    

       

                                        

              This is probably my favorite picture.  Three generations, my grandmother, my mom, and me. 

                                                   

    

    

             I had my late grandmother's brooch fastened to my bouquet.  My sister surprised me with it.

                                        

                                               I love all these ring shots that Tammy did. 

    

    

                                                    Our florist did such an amazing job. 

  

                                       

                                   My sisters each had a piece of my grandmother's jewelry too.

                                       

   

   

   

     

     

     

   

   

                           

     

     

     

   

   

     

                             

     

     

     

     

     

                                                     

     

     

     

   

   

     

   

 

Ceremony

          Our guests saw these details when they walked into the garden.  Our guest book was from etsy.

     

   My mom and dad and friend spent hours on these program fans.  My grandpa made the box they're in.  :)

                                                    

                           The grandparents and parents walked to Edelweiss played on classical guitar.

     

     

                                                             Waiting for us girls.  :)

                                        

                  Here come the bridesmaids!  They walked to a classical guitarist playing January Rain.

     

     

     

                                       

Our RB and FG were SO cute together.  She ran out of petals at the end of the aisle and yelled "I'm out of flowers, Mommy!"  (Her mom was one of my bridesmaids.)  You can see the petals thin out down the aisle.   :)

     

                             

     

     My dad and I walked to "Ashokan Farewell" played by our guitarist and one of my former violin students.

                                                   

     

                            

     

     

     

     

     

     

                                              

My friend Mindy sang "How Great Thou Art" in honor of our grandparents who have passed away.  It was a very special song for me and my grandfather and I wish so much that he could have been there at my wedding.                             

                                        

       My friend Brooke did the scripture reading, even though she had a horrible cold.  What a trooper!   :)

One of my bridesmaids, Darolyn, threw me a bridal shower at La Baguette in Norman.  It was so beautiful!  Such good food and SO many people came and brought such fabulous gifts.  It was so much fun.  It was girls only for a little bit and then my husband joined us to help open gifts.  Here are some of the pics.
