First Dance

Entering the reception.....

 Our first dance...... We danced to the song "Love Never Fails" by Brandon Heath. It has always been one of my favorite songs.

 Father/Daughter dance......"Hundred More Years" by Francesca Battistelli

 The meal we served was barbecue pulled pork sandwiches, tortellini salad, coleslaw, and chips. My Auntie Lena and Baboonya helped with a lot of the food. Thank you both so much! Everything was absolutely delicious.

The Ceremony

My friend Sarah wrote out these signs. I think she did an amazing job!

We ordered flowers in bulk from Sam's club, and did the centerpieces, bouquets, boutonnieres, and corsages ourselves. This was my bouquet.  

Sarah also made baby's breath head wreaths for the bridesmaids. 

We got married in the chapel. We went to the church on Thursday and Friday to set up. 

Pastor Sam performed the ceremony for us. He has been a part of my family for longer than I've been alive. It was such a huge blessing having him do the ceremony. 

Sarah, Sveta, and Rebecka were my bridesmaids. Jacob (Thomas's brother), Adam, and Caleb were groomsmen. 

It's crazy to think that I'm now married. I'm so happy to be married to my best friend. :)

Cotton Patch Cafe

Oliver and I played the "drums" the other morning. Natalie came and listened. 

 The library here in town is so unique. I wanted to show my friends, and we took the boys with us. They love the games they have on the computers. The librarian, Mrs. Kitchen, is so nice, and it is always great to see her. 

The front of the library looks like an old cottage. We wanted to get pictures in front of it. My friend Sarah joined us on Sunday, and I'm so happy to have her here as well. We have known each other since we've been babies. This week has been so much fun so far, and I'm so looking forward to Saturday. :) 

 For dinner, we went to the Cotton Patch Cafe. 

Monday night they have a great special, and that's what we all ordered. Afterwards we went to the grocery store and got more magnum bars for dessert.
