At one point the photogs come and pulled me from the party. They said that the light in the woods was perfect for some neat artsy fartsy shots, so we went for it. It was a blast!
After the Ceremony We snuck in a few minutes alone (kinda). wooo hoo!
I got to present DH with his gift, my B-pic Book!
My uncle actually had his car ready for the wedding, so after that we jumped in the De Soto For some photos around the area. All these photos are taken on or very close to the family property where I grew up, soon we'll have our own home on this beautiful road!
In the photo below I'm pointing at where our house will be!
MANY THANKS TO MY UNCLE LARRY!
We had a LITTLE bit of time to do some posed shots, but I didn't want to keep our guests waiting too long!
Later In the evening though, we snuck back to the ceremony area for a few more intimate photos.
Upon our return we Attempted to Do Some "formals" ha ha ha..
Totally get a kick outta the face I'm making in the photo below!
The Boys Hammin' It Up.
The Boys and FIL
Grandma's Dog "Classie" Made an appearance too!
The ceremony went pretty well, but DH had forgotten his vows at home (dont ask...) I rolled with it and just decided to nix the idea and just do the traditional vows (which we were planning on doing in addition anyway) But Uh Oh! We forgot to tell our officiant! We all had a good laugh over me doing the neck slice motion when he started to say "the couple have prepared some words..." lol
First Look :P

The morning started early, up at 8 am. I planned to make a big family breakfast at my grandmas for all my helpers, so I arrived there early (around 8:30) to begin biscuits and gravy, eggs and bacon. I also put together an awesome bean and turkey sausage stew for the wedding and got that into the crock pots. Unfortunately no one (well a couple people) showed up for breakfast and we started late getting all the decorating going.
It all happened so fast that before I knew it, it was time to move on to the ceremony gazebo and get the show on the road!
I LOVE this shot of me peeking out of the ceremony tent to see what was going on. It's my version of the "looking out the window shot" just one of those well lit shots that shows all the anticipation! LOVE IT!
