Our Wedding – May 31, 2014

Our Wedding

Today marks our 3 year wedding anniversary! I thought it would be fitting to finally share our wedding with you today! James and I started dating in high school on May 28, 2005, when he proposed I knew we were going to get married in May. James and I wanted to keep the wedding date as close to the 28th of May as possible. We only had 9 months of planning, but we made it happen! Leading up to our wedding day, it called for rain, it rained every single day leading up to the wedding, but May 31, 2014, no rain! Thank goodness! Because I refused to get a tent and cover up the beauty of the Lionheart Chateau! I was dead set on having an outdoor wedding unless there was a state of emergency! Haha! I remember telling my mom I will run to Walmart and get umbrellas if I have to! Everything worked out! It was a gorgeous day with all of our family and friends! I always remembered to stop and embrace every moment from getting ready, to taking a moment to walk to the arbor we just got married under (just the two of us), just to have our time together. I’m so grateful I was able to have these moments and enjoy them. This day is a day I will never forget, I can honestly say I had the BEST DAY EVER!
