Wedding Memories

"Rock favors"
We hunted for rocks together, had a stamp made
and then turned them into fridge magnents.
This way people would see them and remember to pray for us
and the "rocky" times in our marriage.

I was thinking about my wedding today and how much I loved it. Chicago meets East Texas! Some of my best friends came down to decorate. Jon's family arrived and I think they enjoyed the Mexican food and Bar-b-que, although I think the heat just about melted everyone! My Aunt Sarah made my bouquet, my dress was a "find" from an old warehouse, my mom made the cake, my dad grew millions of pink zinnias, my bridesmaids made their own zinnia bouquets and we were married in a little country church in Gladewater with all our family and best friends surrounding us. Ben and Shannon played "Gypsy Swing" on guitar and violin. If you don't know what that is, then turn up your volume and listen to the first selection! *sigh* I would do it the same all over again....and I am now married to the most wonderful, hunky man I know!

It really was one of my favorite weddings ever. My favorite memory is of you, sitting in the restroom/lounge, with a fan blowing up your dress b/c the a.c. wasn't working. Can you please post that picture? I love it. So classic.

Happy Wedding Memories! I LOVE pink Zinnias and My sister in law had us make our own bouquets (pink and white roses) and it is still a favorite memory of that weekend.

Ah beautiful. And you and Tyne are real life buddies? How great is that?

I LOVE your favours. What a fab idea, I shouldn't be surprised knowing how super creative you are.

Oh gosh Tyne. I forgot about that! I'm not sure about posting that was so hot in that church and in that dress!

I have zinnias, we have some growing in our pretend garden. What a beautiful wedding, it sounds similar to mine in many ways.

Beautiful. Is it your annniversary or just a memory of the day?
