Show Us Your Life: Wedding Party & Ceremony

It's Friday and Show us your Life at Kelly's Korner. This week theme is wedding party and ceremony week.

We were married in May 2006 at The Beachview Club on Jekyll Island in Georgia. We decided to have a destination wedding and had around 90 family and close friends come to celebrate with us. We tried to keep our wedding simple, but nice. We were married at 6pm overlooking the beach by our friend Andrew. Our ceremony was short and sweet. We told Andrew before hand that we only wanted it to last no longer than 15 minutes. It was the first and probably shortest wedding he's performed. We had the song "When God made you" by Newsong and Natalie Grant played (it still tears me up when I hear it). Since we wanted the focus to be on the beach in the background, we decided to not go for many decorations. We stuck with just a few Gerber daisies tied together at the end of the rows and rose petals lining the aisle. It all turned out beautiful.

A close up of my flowers. The bridesmaids carried smaller versions of my bouquet and we had the same flowers tied to the end of the aisle.

For some reason, none of the wedding party pictures turned out. Some reason, they all came out blurry. We decided to keep the wedding party small with only three to each side. My cousin Aubry was my maid of honor and my brother Josh and sister Liz stood by my side. While David's brother Joey was the best man and he asked his dad and friend Brandon to stand by him. Our flower girl was my baby cousin Savanna and the ring bearers were my nephews Brandon and Chase. Needless to say our wedding was definitely a family affair.

Now head over to Kelly's Korner and Show Us Your Life!

What a GORGEOUS wedding! My anniversary is August 2nd so I am saving the wedding recap for then. I LOVE gerber daisies by the way...they are my favorite flower.

P.S. Just noticed that you are naming your little girl Olivia. If this baby was a girl...we were going to use the same name!
