Don't you just love a good wedding?
Well, I DO!
I love watching the groom walk out in front of all of the friends and family
Love to see the bride appear and just float down the aisle (gaze at her beautiful dress and the excitement on their face)
Then I always look quickly to the groom to see if there are any tears pouring from their eyes (awe...I know, I love that)
I love to see what the bridesmaids dresses look like.
I am always a little curious about "the kiss". Will it be a nice clean peck (that is incredibly awkward, because it looks like the couples first kiss ever), will it be a full on kiss with tounge (that is also incredibly awkward but you keep watching), or will they just hand shake (never seen that, but would assume that would be awkward to watch because, really? who even hand shakes at their wedding?
I love to see how happy they are when they are done with the "I do's"
|Such a sweet picture that I stole from the groom's facebook page. I hope the person that took this picture cares little that I took it, it was just so good and they look to be so happy!|
At this wedding the entrance and the exit of the bride and groom was so much fun. The bride rode on top of a car, then they left together in the car.
It was lovely.
The first dance.
The wedding cake (I love a good cake y'all)
It makes me so happy to see two people commit themselves to each other in front of their family and friends. Saying that they will love each other till death, in good times and bad, and cherish one another. There is not a day more special (to me, until maybe the birth of a child).
This wedding was so special, and the day belonged to our friends
Tanner and Ashley
They had been friends FOR-EV-ER, like since high school, and let's just say high school was not just yesterday! Ha!
Ashley was my first friend, when we moved to NWA. It was the summer before the start of 3rd grade, and I saw Ashley as I entered the doors at church for vacation bible school. The next day at VBS, we realized that we were neighbors, and for years had a friendship.
We would play at each others houses (if not everyday, every other day), have sleepovers, and even vacationed together. A few days before the wedding, I was thinking back to my younger years with Ashley, and I remember talking about boy(s) we would marry, I say boy(s) because obviously I was going to marry numerous people?? I don't know, but I am positive I never liked just one person, but I do remember she had a $1.00 bill framed, she asked to borrow (said 1 dollar, which was then framed) from her crush Tanner (last name not necessary), but she had a bit of a crush on him. She said she would marry Tanner... (now, I know it was not the Tanner she is married to now, but she said Tanner, and there ya go. She must have always known a Tanner was in her future. I secretly (okay it was no secret) I wanted her to marry my cousin Michael, but looking back it woulda never worked out, because we were like in the 6th grade and because it turns out her mate for life (Tanner) would make an appearance a few years later.
Years later, we left the "little town" of Bella Vista and moved over to the "big town" of Bentonville (it was only minutes down the road people and they had a McDonalds).
Well, we now had a new neighbor.
Strange how that worked out.
Anyways, Tanner has been friends with my brother (s) for as long as I can remember.
It's funny having grown up with these two, and seeing how their lives had come together in high school, and they are now married!
We for sure needed Ashley in this picture. This is Ashley's little brother, John. The 5 of us were all such good friends.
The fam, minus Aron and Katie (who was so gracious to watch the kids for us)
My brother Jason (he even gave a speech), sweet to hear. He just loves Tanner (like another brother)
Momma and Daddy
Me and Sophia before leaving for the wedding, I was trying to hide my excitement to get out for the evening!!!!
My brother Richard
My date for the evening
Jason and Aron
Trying to take a family picture, but we are all laughing.
It was a fun night!
Congratulations to our friends, here's to a very happy future.
