I married my best friend,Chris, on June 26,2010 at my grandparents lake property. My family worked so hard to make this day possible, even building the ceremony from scratch. You should have seen my poor 76 year old papaw, my dad and DH laying flag stone in 95 degree weather. Gosh I love them! It really was a labor of love and it was amazing seeing from vision come to life from the vintage ceremony arbor, to the mirrored glass centerpiece boxes, the wish tree and the endless hours I spent searching online for the perfect shade of teal tableclothes to purchase lol It was a perfect day and really was our dream wedding! It was a day I will never forget and will cherish forever. I kind of got carried away with posting pics, so much the last two I posted wouldn't fit so here they are lol. My photographer was amazing! I wish I could have posted all my pics for you to see lol. Feel free to use any of my pics, but credit myself and my photographer Erin Browne.

My grandparents live near the lake and Chris and I always knew we would get married down there one day. We have spent alot of time there and it has been a part of my life and many of my happy summer memories since I was 9.
It was a blank canvas and soon after we became engaged one photo was inspiration for our ceremony site! Luckily my grandfather and dad are super talented and can build anything. Between my dad, grandfather, and FI they created my vision!!!
This was the photo that started it all!
I think it was fate lol about a month after we got engaged we went out to eat and were driving along and I spotted this at an antique store! It was rusted extremely bad, but after we had it sandblasted and painted it looked more and more like my inspiration pic!
Then the building began! Digging the footer!
Building the platform!
Puttin the composite on the platform
My arbor on my wedding day! It was a dream come true and I loved mine better than the inspiration because it was made with so much love! My family put so much work into this arbor to make it better for me and my DH. Only thing they forgot to set my trees out like in the above pic! Oh well things cant be perfect lol.
I realized I hadn't posted any pics of my e-ring except for a couple in my engagement photos.
Ignore my non manicure nails lol and the horrible lighting. I took them with my cell phone in Home Depot lol.
FI is a jeweler so he had my ring custom made.
Here is pic with my band. It's hard to tell anything about it cause of the lighting, but its a platinum band with same detailing as my e-ring.
