Wedding ABC’s: Part 2

Here’s the rest of my post from Tuesday!




Our grandparents were seated to ‘Canon in D’ and our parents were seated to ‘Love Never Fails’ by Brandon Heath. Our bridal party walked down the aisle to the beginning of ‘Kisses and Cake’ by John Powell and I came in at 3:47 and it was absolutely perfect.



Two of our friends from high school were our musicians, and they sang ‘When I Say I Do’ by Matthew West and ‘The Luckiest’ by Ben Folds. Here’s a low-quality recording of the first song – He did SUCH a good job!



Our recessional was ‘You Make My Dreams Come True’ by Hall and Oates – Probably one of my favorite parts of the day!



And our first dance was to ‘our song,’ which is ‘True Companion’ by Marc Cohn.




This is a blog all about our newlywed life, so you guys are pretty much caught up on that! Here’s one of our first pictures as newlyweds!




Old, New, Borrowed, Blue:


My something old was my grandma’s rosary that was wrapped around my bouquet:




My something new was my dress, shoes, veil, basically everything.


My something borrowed was my slip and corset from my best friend.


My something blue was my bride underwear from Victoria’s Secret (on the left in the picture, although yes, I bought all 3) and my KU garter.







We used Brandi Coldwell of Lola Jo Photo Design and would highly recommend her!




Question Popping:


It happened March 7, 2009! You can read the whole story here – It’s a good one! :)








I absolutely loved our reception aside from our terrible experience with the venue – Boulevard Banquet Hall (now ‘The Boulevard’) in Wichita, KS – DON’T use them!! – and wish we could do it all over again! You can read all of my posts about it here. (And please do – there are so many pictures I want to share!)








I’m about 0.25” shorter than David, so I wore pink ballet flats!






Trash the Dress:


I love looking at pictures of trash the dress sessions, but I could never do it!




Oh man, we had a bunch of unique details because I was determined to take the DIY route. You can see a lot of them here. Also, our ceremony was totally written by us, so it was unique, although I’ve since seen another bride use it. I recapped it word for word here, here, and here.




We wrote our own vows, and I loved them. I said, ‘I, Laura, take you, David, to be my husband before God who bought us together and all of these witnesses. As we enter upon the privileges and joys of life’s most holy relationship and begin together the great adventure of building a Christian home, I will look to you as head of our home as I have looked to Christ as head of the church. I will follow you through all of life’s experiences as you follow God. I will love you in sickness as in health, in poverty as in wealth, in sorrow as in joy, and will be true to you by God’s grace, trusting in Him so long as we both shall live.’




Wedding Woes:


Again, our reception venue. You can read that whole story here. The only other one I can remember is both of my sisters being late to get ready/take pictures, which was pretty disappointing at the time. Overall, though, things went really well!




Uhhh, no.


Young Kids:


Our flower girls and ring bearer were my nieces and nephew. They are the cutest darn kids ever, biased or not. I love them to pieces!




With The Girls

{With our honorary flower girl, their baby sister!}






We were SO tired after everything was over! Luckily we had Sunday to recover a bit – We had lunch and opened gifts with our families and then took a nice long nap before packing and running errands for our honeymoon. Our flight left early Monday morning, and having that extra day was SO nice!


So there’s a quick recap of our wedding! If you’re interested in more details or have any questions, feel free to contact me or visit my wedding blog!
