Y’all, it’s weird blogging my own wedding, haha! But we got to look through all of these again, so I’m glad you all wanted me to blog these. One year later and these photos are just even sweeter to go through than they were when we first received them. Aubrey Renee was our photographer and I’m forever grateful to her for taking them.
We kept our wedding really small for many reasons, kept things simple and us. We wrote our own vows (Trent wrote his the morning of the wedding, classic haha) and Trent’s dad got ordained to marry us. My best friend, Hannah, and I picked our bouquet flowers on the side of the road as we drove out to the venue. We got our centerpiece flowers at the farmer’s market from our friends at Pure Pollen.
Certain things were untraditional, Trent and I and our families all “walked down the aisle” together. Some things were more traditional, like the cake cutting and we ended up having a “first dance”, though it wasn’t planned. John Denver’s “Annie” came on and I knew Trent & I had to dance to it. It was such a hot day, but it still was a good time. :)
My advice for if you’re having a wedding is to keep it how you want it, because you only get to do it once anyway. If you want to throw a huge party with 300 of your friends then do it. If you want an imitate, smaller wedding like ours (or maybe just the two of you!) then do it. And find the things that matter most to you and splurge on those things. The things that mattered most to us were the venue, the food and photos.
thank you to everybody who made our day special! :)
