Three years ago today (can it really have already been three years?)…
In honor of our anniversary here’s a look into our big day (note: these are mostly pictures of the stuff, not the people, because I know many people are not comfortable having their pictures posted all over the place…so I’m trying to keep that to a minimum).
I really wanted to get married in front of a lake, but there weren’t really any good places within driving distance and we decided we’d rather have more people get to come and not get married at a lake than to have our ideal location but lots of people have to miss because of the distance. But we were able to find somewhere with a nice creek behind us. We got married at The Rawlings in Joelton, TN and it was truly the perfect day. The weather was beautiful, it wasn’t too hot, and the rained held off until everyone had left. It was casual and fun (at least for me, I sure hope it was for everyone else!).
The flowers that the flower girls dropped were dried petals from every rose Michael ever gave me. Many years ago my mom suggested that I always keep the flowers given to me by a boyfriend and then someday if we got married I could use them in the wedding. So I saved all those roses and it was so special on our wedding day that the rose petals came from years of bouquets.
Speaking of Miller…
Instead of a traditional guestbook, I made scrapbook pages using our wedding colors with lined paper for guests to sign. Then later when I scrapbooked our wedding, I mixed the signed scrapbook pages in among the pictures of the reception. Now our “guestbook” and pictures are all in once place.
Happy three year anniversary to my best friend!
