My Wedding Day - Part 2 - The Reveal

3 hours to go...
Aubrey and I pulled into the parking lot
the plan was for Anthony to be standing down in this field by the reception hall
underneath a tree, tucked back in the woods surrounding the field

Aubrey sent the photographers that way to make sure he was there
After the Okay to head that way my best friend helped me walk the mile long walk to the field
Up until this moment there were so many butterflies fluttering around in my belly
After we crossed the railroad tracks and I saw my groom standing there
all the butterflies calmed down their little partay

We had not talked about this
how we would do it
we just went with the flow
Anthony had his back to me and I walked up to him
tapped him on the shoulder
and he turned around

 I couldn't quit kissing him
he looked so handsome
and his presence just made everything perfect for the day

next stop...
St. Thomas Church
there are people waiting and "I Do's" to be said...

My Wedding Day Pt. 1

Saturday June 15th, 2013
7:00 a.m. - I started my day. We were slightly busy still trying to get last minute details put together
boutonnieres needed assembled still
hay bales needed picked up for the hay wagon
bridesmaid gifts needed put in giftbags
hugs were shared
something old was gifted
a red handkerchief to tuck in my bouquet that was used by my Grandpa Spiker to wipe our dirty faces growing up and whatever other uses he found it to be used for
tears were shed

9:30 a.m. - breakfast at the Spiker's with all my girls

10:00 a.m. - we got started on our hair.
My Aunt Lori did my hair for my wedding.
After doing it for every high school dance it was only acceptable that she do it today

 11:45 - it was dress time!!
all my girls gathered in the bedroom
Mom and my Maids of Honor helped me slip into it

 tying of the bow

 the veil finished it off!

Next we all piled into the cars
The bridesmaids were headed to the Church
Aubrey & I were headed to the reception hall
next stop...first sight
