Six years ago today Heath and I were married. We had a small ceremony outside at a country club. It rained that day but only in between the important parts of the day. We took photos, it rained, we had the ceremony, it rained again. I actually had to bustle my dress so it wouldn’t get dirty and walk on tip toes during the ceremony because my heels were sinking into the grass. People kept talking about how it is good luck for it to rain on your wedding day. It must be true because we have been married now for six years and I am just as in love, if not more so, as I was that day. We’ve definitely had our challenges but we’ve always made it through, somehow stronger in the end.
Here are some of my favorite pics of the day:
I don’t normally NOT wear my glasses so going without them was pretty huge for me. I usually do not like how I look without my glasses but this is my favorite picture of me. Ever. I just love it. The Tiara has since been worn by 6 of my friends and my sister and the pearls were purchased by my father for my grandmother a long time ago.
Heath and I saw each other before the wedding. We already owned a house together at this point so we didn’t see the point in following tradition. Also, if I hadn’t seen him I would have been a crying wreck!
Our wedding party: Our friend Dana, my sister, my Best Man Cameron, my MOH (who introduced AH and I), me, Heath, BM Chris, and groomsmen Gerrit and Nick. I loved having Cameron on my side, it was very scandalous to AH’s side of the family.
Heath as I walk down the aisle with both of my parents. (Check out those boutonnieres. I made those!)
Finally married! I really needed the handkerchief during our vows (we wrote our own) but every time I see this picture I think of how I should have put it down. Oh well. I just remember being so exited to kiss him after our I Do’s!
This is probably my favorite picture out of all of them. The way that he is looking at me….I love him SO much!

One of the funnier moments of the reception. There seemed to have been some technical difficulties with the garter and he was under there for a while.
Why I felt I had to cover my eyes I have no idea, lol.
Leaving the reception.
After the reception we went back to our house and hung out together and drank. Our photographer was nice enough to join us a get a few pics.
To celebrate we are going to head to Indianapolis for the weekend. AH goes to Indy every August for Gencon but I have only been there once. More than likely we will just hang out, shop, and eat. We’re staying at the Westin which has the best. Bed. Ever. The weather looks like it is going to cooperate so it should be a fantastic weekend!
