Our Wedding (Part 2)

For our wedding ceremony, we had a guitarist, Greg Williams, play during the ceremony. He played an acoustic version of In My Life by the Beatles for when I walked down the aisle. I found a version of it that was similar to ours on youtube (but it's by a different artist).

Here were the rest of the songs we chose:
  • Parents' processional - Joy of Man's Desiring
  • Bridal Party Processional - Ave Maria
  • Wedding Recessional - Wedding March
My handsome grandfather is in the pictures below the chair picture. I was so thankful he could be a part of my wedding. He passed away a few years ago and I am the only grandchild he was able to see get married; although I am sure he was looking down when my cousin got married last summer.
All of the groomsmen and bridesmaids walking down the aisle:
I loved my bouquet. LOVED!
 And my favorite photo from our entire wedding. This was the moment he saw me coming down the aisle. Oh my goodness. Seriously. I love him so much!
My dad walked me down the aisle and then my mom and dad gave us all hugs. When they asked "who gives this..." both of my parents spoke.
This is one of my favorite photos of my mom and me:
And one of my favorite photos of my mom and hubby:
We got married in a beautiful garden of a mansion and Bed and Breakfast with beautiful white chairs tied with pink bows and pink petals in the aisles. Our colors were pink and green and, everyone always asks me this, but it was actually my husband who helped pick the colors. Yes, real men wear pink. I asked him if he wanted the groomsmen to wear pink and then have him wear green and he wanted to wear pink. I think it's uber sexy!  
I mentioned this before, but hubby and I wrote our own vows. We really wanted to say words to each other than no other person on the planet had ever put together. There's something to be said about the fact that we married each other with words we wrote.
 This photo below cracks me up because I was so animated.
 With this ring, I thee wed.
 The perfect kiss:
 We did not plan this, but when they announced us as Mr. and Mrs. Howard, I put my hand up and yelled, "Woo-Hoo!" I had waited 7 years to marry him. We had already been through so much and I was more ready than I've ever been for anything.
 Hubby didn't leave me hanging though. He was pretty happy too.
 And with that, we were married.
