We got married May 21, 2011.
Best day of my life.
These photos have been around for a bit, but I'm just now blogging them. I was so happy with our photographer!
The kids in our wedding are the cutest! Bear knows their family from a camp he worked at. Their family is seriously amazing and 100% a result of great, involved parents.
We opted to do a first look. I would *highly* recommend this! We asked all the wedding party and family to clear the courtyard and only watch from inside, so in the midst of the day's craziness, we had a moment (or 20!) that were just OURS.
Bear made the boutonnieres, inspired by "UP", which we watched on one of our very first dates. Bear loves root beer. We always bring back local brews when we go on trips.
A huge wedding party=one really blessed couple.
We have amazing friends.
I love this one.
Bear's sister carried a memorial bouquet for their mother. When she got to the stage, she handed it to them and they laid it on a chair in remembrance. Later, during family prayer, Bear's dad brought the bouquet up with him. It was great to feel like she was there somehow.
See? Cute cute cute.
Somehow, in the course of wedding week, I lost my earrings and hair clip. And then it was so windy that going veil-less seemed like a better option. I think it worked out well. :)
Our minister used the verse "...love BEARS all things..."
I laughed and pointed to Bear. Then he laughed at me. Then everyone laughed at us being nerds.
