6 years ago today - John and I got married. It's hard to believe that it's been that long in some ways, and in others - I can't imagine that I had a life before that day. Marriage has been an exciting ride up to this point, and it has a lot more twists and turns in the future for us - but what an incredible gift from God... a partner for life.
With that being said... here is your small, select photo tour of our wedding festivities... there were a few events left out... but only because the pictures didn't scan in very clearly...
You can click on any of the pictures to get a closer look. Enjoy!
This is me with my bridesmaids... from the left, Susan (maid of honor), Cathi, Wyndie, Maria, and Cindy (matron of honor). At the time both of my honor attendants were pregnant... they gave birth two months apart to my two neices named Taylor.
This one is a little out of order, but I'm leaving it... this is our first kiss at the end of the ceremony. In our official photographer's photo - the pastor's head is in the middle, and it looks like I'm kissing him instead of John!
I know... a girl post weight loss surgery posting pictures of cake... but I designed them, and I'm proud of how they looked. This was John's grooms cake... it had the Texas A&M seal, white chocolate replicas of both of our class ring crests... and all the fun tuxedo strawberries. Oh, and if you pushed a little button on the corder of the cake board... it played the Aggie War Hymn.This was my cake... I absolutely love the way it turned out - it was stunning. We had a lighted fountain under the pedestal, and it truly was beautifully done. The cake topper we bought, and altered... it was very over done, but we removed a lot and simplified it... and as it turned out - the Precious Moments figures are actually salt & pepper shakers!!
We're not big skiers, but went to Beaver Creek, Colorado (not far from Vail) for our honeymoon... we stayed in my Dad's condo, so we found other activities to entertain ourselves. This particular picture was taken while we were on a snowcat tour of one of the mountains. When you get to the top - they let you out to look around and have some hot chocolate or coffee to warm up.Another night we went into Vail Village for dinner, and shopping. They had several different ice sculptures around town - so we took a picture with one.
