Wedding Recap #1

So I decided to go ahead and do a little wedding recap. I still don't have the professional pictures on a disc so that I can post them on here, but my photographer put some on facebook so I can use those for now. I hope I don't bore you too much!

As I stated before the wedding was an absolutely perfect day. Everything went so smoothly. I enjoyed every moment and took it all in. I am so thankful to have that day in my memories. I would go through all of the pain of wedding planning again for that day I am so thankful that Luke and I were able to share our love for each and for our Father through this day.

The night before the wedding my friend Kara stayed the night at my house. We have been friends since Junior High and have spent the night together many times. It was so much fun to have her over. Along with my two sisters we stayed up until 3am. At that point I made myself go to sleep I'm pretty sure they stayed up longer, but I knew that I needed to get some rest.

The next morning we woke up at 8:30 and started getting ready for the day. Melinda my frend, housemate, and hair stylist drove to Tulsa to do my hair and my bridesmaids. To say she did a great job would be an understatement. She did an AMAZING job.
The whole day I was completely relaxed. Believe me, it was a complete God Thing that I was relaxed. I was able to sit back and enjoy the whole day. However I couldn't eat the whole day. When I get really anxious it is hard for me to eat, I just didn't have any appetite. I went through the whole day without eating but I was never once hungry. I was just going so fast through the day that I never even thought about food. (believe me I usually eat A LOT)

OK, I am going to finishing recapping the day later - Big Brother is on right now and I need to cook dinner for my husband. He is currently hanging decorations and curtains that we bought today. He asked me to help and I told him I was updating my blog - I wish I could have taken a picture of the look he gave me.

Until later....here are some pictures the photographer took after the ceremony. We did our getaway with everybody and then drove to the other side of the reception site and took these pictures. It was so fun to just hang out with my new husband, taking pictures and enjoying the moment of a once in a lifetime day. They turned out really great

More to come later.....













Our wedding photographer was the same person we used for our engagement pictures: Jesse Reich out of Tulsa. As you can see above he did an amazing job. I can't wait to show you the others!
