My Wedding.

I should be making a quilt right now.... But I'm not. I need a break anyway. So, I've been married for three months and I never really told you all about my wedding. It was simple, beautiful, and stress less. It was absolutely perfect. We didn't throw a huge reception in Idaho (we threw a little bigger one in Washington). It was in a small building and decorations were few. We even had donuts instead of cake. I'm not one for doing anything traditional. I didn't have bridesmaids, I didn't throw my bouquet (I wasn't even going to have one, but my sister forced me), and Rob and I didn't have a first dance. I kind of hate attention, and even though my wedding days is all about me (and Rob of course), I still didn't want all eyes on me. I've just always been this way. And really, I don't regret any of those things. The day Rob and I got married was about the promises we made to each other in the temple--and that's all that matters. On a side note, my wedding was all done by my family. Literally. My mom made my dress and veil, my sister Christie did my hair and make-up, my sister Kellie made my bouquet, and my sister-in-law Chelsee took the pictures. Yay for talented women in my life!

  8. Love this! My wedding consisted of handmade decorations, handmade-fake bouquets for the ladies and bouteniers for the guys, and only close family. There were 25 of us to share the day and we all pitched in to make food and set-up the day of. My hubby made the arch we married under and I wore my mother in law's wedding dress, which she was kind enough to update and alter for me. It was perfect, and simple and relatively inexpensive. My mother in law also made the cake! I think that smaller, more intimate weddings and celebrations are more sincere and meaningful. You two look so happy together! Great colors by the way and your mother did the most amazing job on your gorgeous dress!
