Favorite Part of the Day •

I actually had two! My great friend's husband recommended that we take a few minutes during the reception and go off together and just to take everything all in. It was the best advice ever! As Charlie and I looked down upon everyone my heart felt so full! To have almost all the people we love and cherish join together in our celebration under one roof was amazing! Guests traveled from 18 states and 3 countries! Incredible!

Second, was dancing with my 83 year old grandmother on the dance floor. Not only was she the First one out there to dance, she was the last one out there as well! Her out there cuttin a rug brought everyone's booty out there to dance! Friend's are still talking about how much fun she was to dance with. Our day was a great reminder that "When you love what you have, you have Everything you need"

Favorite Part of the Day // The entire day?! It was the best day of my life. My #1 would have to be our first look. The emotion that came in seeing him for the first time, all dressed in his tux and ready to marry me. This day that I had been waiting for with him for 8 1/2 years. Being so overcome with love and emotion even after all that time, it was as if I had only known him a few months and I had the "beginning of this relationship" butterflies. Almost 9 years later and I still have them. Warms my heart just thinking about it. That was such an incredible moment together. My #2 would be the end of our night when Jeff & I slow danced to Ben Howard's Old Pine. Seeing all of our closest friends & family all around us, there for US, and just being in that moment with Jeff - it makes me tear up just thinking about it. It was perfect. I wish I could go back and do it all over again.
