My wedding was not the most traditional. We kept some old traditions, added new ones of our own, and threw others still out the window, and in the end we had a day that was completely ours. That day and the ones leading up to it were stressful and wonderful and frustrating and fun. I am thrilled that we had a wedding with all the trimmings this time around, but I can tell you right now; I never want to go through all of that again! I had an amazing week with my friends and family and now I have some beautiful pictures to show for it thanks to my close friend Amie Jones (I would link her blog but I don't think she blogs anymore. Get on that, Amie). Here are some picture from our day, picked out of many more. I was trying not to post too many, but it's hard! Thanks to all of you for being a part of our day, and I'm still so sorry the simulcast didn't work!
