Welcome to Day 4 of The Ultimate Wedding Week! I am so excited to share our Ceremony pictures with you guys today! It has been so fun reliving my wedding with you all. Feel free to catch up here, here, & here! Our ceremony was so personal and special to us. My childhood Pastor married us, and so many of our friends and family were present on our wedding day. I can't describe how much love we felt that day, and I hope you enjoy taking a peak into our special day!
These are the famous chandeliers that served as the underlying theme of our wedding design...they are amazing!
I love this picture of my Dad and me. One cool thing about our venue, was that there was a TV in the bridal suite that was showing the wedding live. I loved watching people arrive and being able to watch our wedding before I walked down the aisle.
Watching the wedding with my sisters before it was our turn to walk down the aisle.
My husband and his Mommy.
My wonderful parents!
Our Mom's lit the Unity Candle together at the beginning of the Ceremony. I loved that they held hands :)
My Mom wrote a special poem that little Sterling recited. It was such a sweet and personal way to begin the Ceremony. She memorized the whole thing and did such a good job!
The Groomsmen & Bridesmaids walked in to "Pachelbel Canon in D"...this was my Father of the Bride moment :)
I've known our flower girls since they were born. Reilly & Ryan are sisters, and I am so glad they were a part of our day. Aren't they precious!?
Love this picture of me and my Dad :)
Our Ceremony was officiated by my childhood Pastor, and he did such an amazing job. It was so personal and sweet, and we had lots of laughs.
Lauren and I decided to write our own vows, and I am so glad we did. It was so personal and intimate to share our vows with all of our closest friends and family all around us. (See the TLC camera guy in the background...he was a little too close!)
Another special part of our Ceremony was a time of blessing and prayer over us by some important mentors in our lives. I will always remember this time.
You may kiss your bride!!!
We did it! Woohoo! Our recessional was to the song "You Make My Dreams" by Hall & Oats! We wanted something fun to get everyone ready to celebrate!
Our photographer caught this sweet moment right after the Ceremony...our first few moments as husband and wife.
Ready to Celebrate!
We quickly began some family photos, while our guests were enjoying a cocktail hour. It was nice because we had everything at the same venue. I would totally recommend this! We just walked outside when we were done, and our guests did not have to wait that long for the reception to begin!
This is both of our families together!
Lauren's great family!
My wonderful family!
Three generations :)
I love this picture of Lauren with all of his siblings.
These next two pictures are very special to me. Last year, two of my grandfathers passed away unexpectedly in May. I cherish these photos and the fact that they were able to be present on our wedding Day. We love you so much Ken & Pop, and we know you are in heaven watching over us.
