We got Married January 2nd 2010. Our original wedding day was set for May 15,2010 but we had to move our wedding up after we found out that we were expecting a little one! I'm due May 22nd. (yes I'm overdue :-( ) Hopefully we will here good news today from the doctor saying she can come out soon
I will upload more pictures later. On my way to the doctors now!
We ended up changing a great deal of our wedding because we had to change it from a spring outdoor wedding to a winter wedding. So our locations all changed. It was a crazy time, but it turned out perfect!!
The Bride: My Name is Lynneea. I am 23 years old! I am a senior at Western Michigan University majoring in Political Science with a Minor in Communication. I would like to graduate and go on to law school. I go to school full time, work full time and I am trying to plan a wedding. I am a very loud and outgoing person who loves to get to know people. I am constantly talking or coming up with ways to talk (email, text, phone calls, Im's anything lol) So now I'm enjoying the fun life of planning a wedding. Thank god I have an amazing mother!!!! I am the youngest of 6 children and I am the only girl!! So my mom has been waiting to help me plan my dream wedding for years!
The Groom: My amazing grooms name is Tyler and he is very sweet and quiet. So basically he is the exact opposite of me!! They say opposites attract and its true for us! Tyler is also 23 and he is attending Western Michigan University majoring in Marketing. When he is not going to school he works full time for a packaging company. He is a normal boy who loves his sports, video games and cars.
Tyler and I met 17 years ago. We didn't know that we met 17 years ago, but after becoming friends we realized we were in the same kinder-garden class (we actually went to the same school K-12). I was always the loud "class clown" and he was the quite shy kid in the back. Being the social person that I am always knew of Tyler throughout school, but just thought of him as another class mate. It wasn't until or senior year of high school that Tyler and I actually became friends.
He was dating a girl I had known and he was also in my English class. Being the social butterfly I am I had to get to know him. I asked him a million questions about his girlfriend and everything else I could come up with. After an entire year together in class we became friends. I invited over to my house for some parties (He had never been to a party in his life) and he would start to invite me out with his group of friends to movies. At the time I had a serious boyfriend and he had just ended a relationship. We remained friends for the next two years. We would go see movies together and hang out in groups.
It was the spring of 2007 that I realized I liked him. He was always a very sweet shy person so I didn't really know how he felt about me. At the time that I started to like him there was three other girls who would always come by his house. Somehow I was the one who won his heart!! Our first kiss was April 07 (after a movie) and he asked me out May 25, 2007 (after a movie) we now make jokes that he should have proposed to me after a movie because every major event in our relationship we can remember by what movie we saw!!
