The Day I Married My Best Friend

Posted by Picasa
March 7, 2009.... The best day of my life. I was lucky enough on that day to join my best friend in marriage. The day was perfect. No stress, no disasters, just a little wind but that couldn't be enough to ruin my perfect day. The wedding was at 7:00 PM at Green Lawn Church of Christ with the reception right after at the Reese Center. It was so special and contrary to what everyone said, I didn't feel one bit of nervousness. I was excited and eager the whole time. Joseph on the other hand couldn't hide his nerves. On my walk down the isle he faked a yawn to conceal his tears. And yes I did win the bet that he would cry. It was so sweet. Luckily no one saw his yawn but me. Another of my favorite memories was after our kiss, he wiped his lips with his hand, yes in front of the whole audience. Laughter erupted, I was a little embarrased, but no big deal. After we walked out to the hallway after the ceremony, I witnessed a very precious moment. Although he would kill me if he saw this, I have to write it anyway. My dad was crying and it touched my heart. It made me tear up. The whole wedding was a success.
More pictures to come soon, and I will be posting about the reception whenever I get the pictures in!

Rehearsal and Dinner

Our rehearsal dinner began at 6:00 PM on March 6th. We had it at Green Lawn Church, where our wedding was held as well. We had the dinner catered by Orlando's. We had about 35 people including friends and family. We had a lot of family that came in from out of town that I had not seen in a long time. It was so great catching up with everyone. We walked through the ceremony a couple times and got all the kinks worked out, then had a great dinner. It was such a great time.

Wedding Decorations

The colors of our wedding were cream, lime green, and black. Joseph and I worked really hard on all the decorations. The church was decorated with pillars, tulle and lights with a lime green isle runner customized with our initials and wedding date.
We decorated the reception with alternating center pieces. We used cylinder, tall vases filled with limes and a cream candle with decorative paper and ribbon in our colors. The second centerpiece we did was a green and black flower pot and a bare tree branch painted white in it. Each tree branch had a hanging ornament and cream beads on it.
We had a candy bar that had 6 vases filled with all different candies. Everything turned out really great and we had so much fun decorating it all.

Bridal Photo Session

I know these pictures are WAY over due, but life has been crazy busy with the wedding and all. Now that's it over we can resume life as usual and I can catch up on everything. Here are some of my favorite pictures from my bridal session. It was a lot of fun. We started at a place across from the Windmill Museum in a tree filled area, then went to an abandoned drive in burger place. A friend of my mom's brought her beautiful old mustang. I wanted to do a lot of car pictures since that is such a huge part of Joseph's life. We finished at a house on 1585 and Slide Road that has a whole lot of old cars. I absolutly loved the looks of the old car in the front yard. All in all the day was fabulous and the weather was great, even though the start of the week was cold.

My Bachelorette Party!

WOW! What a fun night! It kicked off around 7 PM at my sister's house. There were lots of fun people there. We had lots of good food, a great cake, chocolate fountain, and good drinks. They threw me a lingerie shower and I got so many wonderful things. My hostesses gave me a Tiffany's bracelet with my new "married" initials on it HKH and I absolutly LOVE it! They know me so well and knew I wanted one. I loved all my gifts, I am so lucky to have such great friends and family.

After the gifts were opened, we played some really fun (and funny) games. It was so great. At 10:30 PM a limo arrived to pick us up for a night on the town. We went to Klusoz for about half an hour, then on to my new FAVORITE place... Club Heaven. It is just way to entertaining there. Everyone is so nice and I just love it. Everyone else seemed to enjoy it as well. We all agreed we can't wait to go back. We ended the night at Daquari Lounge and headed back home about 2:30. It was a blast. Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate with me! Here are some pictures from the night!
