Today is my wedding anniversary!

Way back on May 19th I told you my engagement story via a vlog.  So it seems only natural to tell my wedding story as well...but this time, I am going to do it with pictures and audio (ok, and some words too). The only problem is that YouTube is not cooperating due to the music that I used.  So, you will need to go to my Facebook page to view it.  You will find the link at the bottom of this post to see the video.

My husband and I got married on June 17, 2006 at a winery in Amador County, California.  The whole wedding was very personalized to us and we included our family and friends as much as possible.  One of my cousins married us, one of my best friends and hubby's uncle did readings, two other friends opened the giant doors that I came out of and some of my other cousins sang "The Song of Ruth".  Hubby and I each have one sibling so they were our maid of honor and best man.  I tend to like a little bit of whimsy so the isle was blue and covered with daisies.  We are pretty simplistic people as well so rather than doing extravagant center pieces for the tables we just used those multi-color flower pots that you can find out in front of most grocery stores in the summer.  All of these things were true to who we were and it was fabulous. 

All this being said, if I step away from the specialness of the day, and look superficially at various aspects, there is one thing that I more pleased about than others and that is the music I walked down the isle to.  The Princess Bride is by far my most favorite movies of all times and a friend mentioned that they used the theme for their wedding.  I got to playing around with the music and determined that we could get the huge doors that we were going to walk out of to open just as the music picked up. It took some coordination, but from my perspective (and several guest's perspectives) it was amazing.  I tried to incorporate it into the slide show (link below) so that you can get the same feeling. You will have to tell me if it worked. :)

There was also one thing that I would definitely change if I could do it again and that was the bustle on my dress.  We had a dance all choreographed, but we had to ditch much of it because I had to hold onto my dress the whole time.  I included of those pictures so you can see what I mean.

Well the baby is waking up so I need to hit post and run to be mommy. Wish I could talk more about how much this day means to me, but that will have to be another post.  Enjoy!

I am just like you, out of that whole special day thing, it was the music I enjoyed most. I walked down the isle to the love theme from St Elmos Fire, it was sooooo perfect!
