It's My Wedding Anniversary

Back in February, I shared the story of how Scott and I came to be husband in wife.  If you missed it, or if you're new around here, you can go check them out: Our Story, Our Story, Part 2.

From reading those posts, you know that Scott and I had a legal marriage, and an official wedding ceremony.

Three years ago, today, Scott and I had our wedding. 

Though, I shared some of our wedding photos in Our Story, Part 2, I'm going to share some of my favorites today.  These are photos that were taken by guests at the wedding.  None of these are our professional photographs.  Oh, and there may be repeats from the previous post, I warn you now.  :)

This is me (obviously) with my flower girl, Zoe.  She's my cousin's daughter.  I can't tell you how much I love this picture.
My mom is finishing the tying of my corset back, and I'm zipping up Tori's (my cousin) dress.
Ready to go...and yes, I took the hair tie off of my wrist. :)
My cousin's son, AJ, was our ringbearer.  He carried the actual rings because I trusted him more than either of the best men.  :)
My brother, David, escorted my mom to her seat.
Scott and his groomsmen waiting for my entrance

This picture cracks me up.  It looks like Scott is using AJ as a puppet.

At our wedding we...
...held our ceremony at New Life Worship Center.
...had 1 maid of honor and 1 matron of honor, 6 bridesmaids, 2 best men, 6 groomsmen, 1 ringbearer, and 1 flower girl.
...chose music that suited us!  My friend, Kira (also a bridesmaid), sang "A Moment Like This" by Kelly Clarkson for the processional.  I walked down the aisle to "Everything I Do (I Do it for You) by Bryan Adams.  My aunt and uncle sang, "The Other Side of Me" by Michael W. Smith for the unity candle ceremony.  We exited our ceremony to "The Way You Make Me Feel" by Michael Jackson.
...did not force our entire bridal party to stand in a receiving line....AWKWARD.  It was just us and my parents and Scott's mom and stepdad. 
...did not leave the church together for the outdoor pictures.  My brand-new husband said it never occurred to him that we were supposed to do that.  Even though I told him that we were supposed to.
...had an awesome reception.

I'm going to share reception details and pictures tomorrow!  :)  Stay tuned.

Wait, you forgot the part about the flower girl needing to be escorted down the aisle because she refused to walk it alone.... LOL
