3 Years Today!
In honor of our third anniversary, I'd like to share some wedding moments with you all.
First, the details (Aletha-style!)
Couple :: Josh + Jessica, 6-11-05
Ceremony + Reception + Catering :: First CRC + Frederick Meijer Gardens + Applause
Photographer :: Dusty Brown
Cake :: My Aunt Thressa made it
DJ :: I don't remember, but he wasn't anything too special
My mom and I had SO much fun planning this wedding. Josh lived across the country from me at the time, and didn't have much input! We had a 5 1/2 month engagement, and worked super hard to get all the details in place in such a short time. But it worked out wonderfully and the day was almost perfect.
My sweet dad!
You can't tell from this picture, but it was about 95 degrees in the church. No A/C! We actually put tubs of bottled water around so people wouldn't faint. But my mom's sisters spent the night before tying pink ribbons to them, so they matched.
Yay! We're married!
I had to pick rose petals out of my dress in the car on the way to the reception! But I loved the look of them.
We did a "candy buffet" (thank you Martha Stewart for that idea) as our wedding favor. Each guest got an empty takeout box at their seat, and had the opportunity to go and get it filled with their favorite pink candy. It was a hit!
We had a lot of help from friends to get the room set up. They did a great job!
And beautiful bridesmaids! Three of these girls will get married themselves later this year!
The happy couple :)
They did a great job with my bouquet - I loved it.

Oh my goodness, it was such a happy day. Delicious wedding details aside, it was wonderful because I got married to my very best friend.
And we've had an amazingly blessed and happy three years together.
To celebrate tonight, we're taking the dog to obedience school (yes, we're that cool!) and then going out for dinner. I can't wait!
