I got married last week and we had a week long wedding that was the most magical time in my life. I even went completely offline for most of the week and didn’t even tweet! I was too busy being present during the time of my life. I received lots of questions about how the wedding went and if you could see pictures, so here you go!
We were hoping to live up to our fun wedding invite and we did!
This week was a seriously double rainbow week.
Actually, there really was a rainbow around our house the day before the wedding and another one the day after around the lake house where we had the after party.
There were so many animal totem signs that it actually got sort of ridiculous at the end.
A baby bear was sleeping behind the bush at the ceremony.
Two bald eagles circled the after party.
The field where we got married as so filled with fire flies the night of the wedding that it looked like a wild drug trip. Even locals who grew up in the country had never seen a lighting bug show like that in their lives. It was spectacular.
A family of five woodchucks sat on the rock behind the ceremony as if they were watching it.
The fields and our wedding path were marked with amazing signs handcrafted from our friend Phil. He even made us a jail to fit with our country themed wedding. We even had a sheriff who would send people to jail if they were not having fun, which never happened, so we used it as an extra photo booth.
We had a week long celebration including a bus tour of the county where we live, a chocolate factory tour and trip to the Amish cheese factory.
It was a dress-up wedding for the guests too. Everyone had to come in Prairie Wagon Train attire, whatever that meant to them. A group of our friends even came as brothel gals; hilarious. The art teacher even made fake cash to get them to get you a beer.
We wanted our wedding to not be all about us, but to be about our community and our loved ones. We wanted everyone to have a great time and boy did they ever.
Here is a love story in pictures:
I will share more when we get more pictures. Wow, was that a spectacular week. Right now we’re coming down off the glorious high from it and organizing the recycling and doing piles of laundry. Yep, we’re married.
