Gordon and I grew up in the same town, went to the same school, and thought it fitting to get married at the beach where we spent many summer days as kids. Even though we had "a thing" for each other in high school, we never dated back then. We were friends, and even went to prom together, with our respective dates! It is amazing that we found each other 20 years later, and fell completely in love.
Saturday, July 9th, 2011, was truly a blessed day. The weather was perfect; sunny skies and not too hot. There is a brand new gazebo that provided just enough shade for the ceremony, and lots of other little areas that the photographers took great advantage of. Yes, I said photographers! Josh and Zack did an amazing job ... I saw the pictures already! I can't wait to get them back and do some scrapbooking. All of the pics in this post were taken by my mom as she followed us and the photographer around.
After the ceremony and all the pics, we all headed to G's parents house. They made enough food for an army ... ox roast, pasta salad, fried chicken, fresh fruit and veges ... YUMMMMM! And to top it off, a few hours later we were by a fire cooking hotdogs and munching chips.
I am so thankful that:
- Mom, Ty, and Lizz got to come and spend time with us
- the weather was perfect for our day
- the whole experience was completely stress free
- I have a new family that I adore
