I could see Joshua well before he could see me. Butterflies were forming in my stomach and my heart was beating faster than ever. I soaked in my soon to be husband standing there, waiting to turn around once he received the signal to do so. All I could think about was looking into his eyes and seeing him see me.  I may have pulled my dad down that aisle trying to get to Joshua! Our ceremony was full of special moments including our favorite worship songs, a moment where Joshua and I stepped off to the side to pray together, and reciting personal written vows.

I reflect back on our ceremony often. The way it felt to see Joshua. To reach him at the end of the aisle. And to have him pull me into is arms for a kiss that marked us as husband and wife. Hearing the vows he wrote to me and having him hear what I wrote for him. These are moments I will cherish our whole lives. Moments I cannot wait for each of you to experience if you haven’t yet!

We served a variety of appetizers that were personal favorites of ours while a bluegrass band filled the air with sweet southern music. Additionally, we had a lawn game area {more on that here} with dice and bocce ball from Mark & Graham plus a custom cornhole set. We wanted cocktail hour to be a time to mix and mingle while enjoying the beautiful fall weather.
